A tip about table numbers (and a story about my mom haha).
Every. single. time we talk about named table numbers, Jenna’s mom comments on how confused she gets when tables have names instead of numbers: when you walk in and see “Las Vegas,” how are you supposed to know what direction to head in for “Cape Cod”?
Now, a little disclaimer- we LOVE named table numbers. It’s such a sweet way to bring in a little more about your love story and add a unique touch to something so functional. And if that’s what you want, we’re 120% behind it- it’s your wedding! But if you’re having a larger wedding (and a ton of tables), combining the two ideas might be something to think about. Here are some ideas for having the best of both worlds:
– Writing out part of the number and using numerals for the actual table number: “Ten-oh-9” in an address (let’s say the address of where you met, like “1009 Wesleyan Street”) for table #9.
– Do both! We do this often. So “Grayson Vineyard” would be “Table No. 1” and it would be printed as both on the table numbers and escort cards.
– You guys love sports? Google MLB or NFL (or whatever three letter league gets you cheering) team rankings and use the most recent standings for built in numbers.
A chronological list of places you’ve been (3rd trip together: Matt’s wedding in Western Massachusetts) or sites of significant dates (1st date: the bagel shop downtown) can be a great place to start- instant numbers! We’d love to know what you decide!
