Recently at a wedding, I was suprised by the couples unique wedding table number ideas. They actually used their candid photos with each table number and included some trivia on the back of the card that was related to the table number. Number 3, the card on our table, mentioned that the couple met 3 years after going to the same university.
If you want some creativity with your table numbers, here are some easy DIY wedding table plans that you will find useful.
Fun and Unique Wedding Table Number Ideas
There are actually a hundred and one ideas on how to put numbers on your wedding reception tables. In fact, you don’t have to limit yourself to numbers. As long it identifies the table and as long as your guests know where they will sit, you don’t have to worry about it.
Add photos with your numbers. Yes, you can add your prenuptial photos with the table number. You can put them in small photo frames or in place holders. Another variation that you can try is to put candid pictures of both of you holding numbers that would then serve as the table number. Just make sure that the numbers are big enough to read.
That’s my favorite player! If you’re the sporty type, you can use the number of your favorite baseball players or football players and even add their names! You don’t have to use consecutive numbers either. One table can be Number 22 and the next can be number 5 – as long as there are no duplicates, then you are going to be fine with it. I’ve seen this idea used and the couple had a quiz as part of their reception, they used the sport player numbers as answers to the quiz – all the guests loved it.
Etch them in candles! Having candles at your reception tables can add drama and set a romantic mood for the evening, and of course, they can double as your table number holder. You can even etch the table number on them - but make sure it’s visible for guests to see. There are a number of stores that stock table number candles if you don’t have time.
Place names instead of numbers. Instead of having numbers to identify each table, you can also have names of places significant to both of you on wedding table cards. You can even add some facts about why you chose that place. For example, if you put “Paris” then under it, you add some interesting facts like “The couple first met in Paris when Jeff attended an art workshop and Holly was vacationing but it was a casual meeting with a simple exchange of Hellos“. Then you can put a different story on another table. Things like this can make a simple thing interesting for your guests.
