Top Tips – Table Names and Numbers

top tips

This afternoon I’m pleased to bring you the next edition of  ‘Top Tips’. Top Tips is a way for suppliers to get involved with the Blog. If a supplier sees something new or exciting at a wedding they are working at I am asking them to send me in a photo of their findings so I can post it on the Blog.

I will only feature photos from actual weddings, or from real wedding suppliers, no pinterest photos. So you will you be safe in the knowledge that all these ideas are achievable and attainable.

Today I am sharing with you ideas for Table names and numbers after I was sent the below images from Cherry Pie Lane. You can really add a splash of personality into the way you direct your guest to their tables. Gone are the days when all you can use is a number on a laminated piece of card, these days anything goes and it is a real chance to add a bit of humor and that personal touch into your table decoration. From countries the couple have visited, to names their favorite albums, anything goes!

Instead of numbers each table was named after a country they were going to on the honeymoon, with each table designated by a pair of bears in that country’s national dress. The costumes were hand-made by the grooms mum and they raffled them off at the end of the night for an orphanage they were visiting on their travels.
