There are countless ways to bring personality and create “wow” moments in a couple’s wedding celebration. One way to achieve this is through creative table numbers. While table numbers are necessary to guide guests to their correct seats, with a little thought you can turn what seems like a small detail into a standout décor element.
Below are some of our favorite ideas for today's wedding inspiration.
WEDDING TABLE NUMBERS
Wedding table numbers are fundamental so they must be noticeable! Customizing wedding table numbers is a unique way to make your table décor special to you. Table “numbers” don’t need to actually be numbers. Customize the displays to be a nod to your heritage or locations that are meaningful to you. You can turn to anything for inspiration.
The below examples range from elegant to fun and quirky. You will find inspiration in how you might name your tables. Or you may opt for a classic table number that is displayed in a unique way.
VINTAGE OR RUSTIC TABLE NUMBERS
Show your wild side with a nature-inspired design for your wedding table numbers. Incorporate different types of greenery into the décor and put your table numbers on a wooden base or background. We love the reuse of vintage forks attached to birch wood at Wendy and Marc’s Deering Estate wedding.
ILLUSTRATED TABLE NUMBERS
Customized illustrated table numbers are basically a totally unique art piece that is highly personal to the couple. Etsy is a great resource for custom illustrated table numbers, wedding invitations and more.
Molly and Raj personalized their table numbers with locations that were special to them. Julia and Tim took it a step further. The groom actually illustrated the table numbers himself! Each table name was a location special to them, including “Guernsey”, the groom’s childhood home off the coast of Normandy.
FLORAL TABLE NUMBERS
Create floral-inspired wedding table numbers by incorporating the flowers used in your wedding on the table number card itself. You can print custom floral designs on paper cards. Use card holders that match the vases of your floral centerpieces.
For a real statement piece, incorporate your table numbers into the floral centerpieces themselves like Kristine and Manny did here!
WEDDING THEMED TABLE NUMBERS
Embrace your wedding’s theme, whether it be rustic, tropical, nautical or something else. Pineapples are a great way to punctuate your tropical theme table décor.
Let wine bottles do double-duty as table numbers. Cover-weight paper printed with large, graphic numerals can be adhered over existing labels with double-sided tape for a clean, contemporary look. It is a clever touch that will have guests drinking to your good fortune -- and your good taste.
