1. Add your own personalized twist.

Creativity is key! When you incorporate things, places, or hobbies you love, guests get a sneak peek into your unique story. For instance, consider using some of these wedding table name ideas instead of ‘numbers’ for a punch of personalization.

3. Make sure the table numbers stand upright.

Your table numbers should stand out and be upright on their own. While leaning a table number against your centerpiece can work, in outdoor weddings (or if the centerpiece isn’t strong enough) your table numbers can fall down. A table number set against a picture frame with a stand is one easy way to ensure your table number stays put.

4. Don’t forget escort cards!

And, last but not least, don’t forget escort cards for guests! An escort card tells a guest where to be seated upon entering the reception. If you need escort card display ideas, you can find twenty-five of them here!

Happy Planning!

So we are having a Chicago themed wedding and are going to do famous Chicagoans as our table names. Do you think it’s better to have numbers as well as the names (like in the picture you included) or just the names?
