You can be as general or as specific as you want- favorite cities, streets in your favorite city, places you have been at important times in your relationship.

If you use cities, you can use a pic of the two of you in that city and print the name of the city on your pic.

Maybe try to think about things you love – if you love to read maybe names of books you’ve enjoyed, if you’re into flowers you could do names and pictures of flowers, places you’ve visited – if you’ve got a photo of you both there that could def work, Pets you’ve had – again if you had photos that would work best.

We are thinking about doing literary couples – e.g. Gatsby and Daisy, Jane and Rochester, Catherine and Heathcliff.

@CaliBeeBride0813:  I’m doing names/numbers for players of our favorite sports team, is there a sport you both are fans of?

“Love” in different languages

if you guys are foodies, do things like “appetizers” and “dessert” table

sports fans? ” first down, home run, slap shot, shut out”

Names that tie in with your theme

@Liss13: I like those ideas…but how do they appear on the tables themselves?

We’re doing cities we’ve visited. We’ll do numbers as well so that they’re easier to find. The actual design I’m planning is basically a tall piece of cardstock with the number and name of each table. Then supporting cardstock on each side, at an angle, with one side having a picture of us in that city and one side having a short description of when we were there.

@CaliBeeBride0813:  I actually think the city idea is better than going more specific, just for the fact that some of your guests may be from out of town and not know what they are looking for. If you know all your guests are from your area, then that’s a good idea, but otherwise I really like doing your favorite cities.

u could use a different engagement photo for each table. a friend of mine recently had a beautiful reception and she had epics framed on each table. i know alot of receptions feature epics on the tables, and my friend didnt exactly use them for the seating chart, but im just saying i think it would be a cute idea for epics to be used specifically for table identification.

@julies1949:  We’re doing something similar: we’re using vintage postcards of National Parks/places we’ve been. Then we’ll use a smaller version as the escort card.

@CaliBeeBride0813:  I’m an English major and bookworm so I was thinking of doing famous literary couples. Gatsby and Daisy, Scarlett and Rhett, Harry and Ginny (because I’m a huge HP nerd!)

Your idea with famous monuments in your city is a good idea!

I love the idea of getting pics of you at each age and using them as table numbers.
