50 Table Name Ideas

Posted July 10, 2013 | 39 Comments

Goodbye boring… hello, unique reception tables! Make your reception tables pop by replacing traditional table numbers with table names. Each table name is an opportunity to share your unique love story or tie in your wedding theme. And, I have to admit: the most memorable weddings I’ve attended were those with clever table names (like songs by The Beatles and types of wine). What will your table names say about you? We’ve rounded up fifty of the best wedding table name ideas to inspire your own creative twist with everything from states you love to favorite tv couples. We’re also offering a giveaway in this post… read on for the full scoop and your chance to win!
