21 Themed Table Numbers for Receptions

Creative Options for Table Numbers at Your Reception

Weddings tend to be pretty thematic. Whether you want to turn back time with a 1920s-inspired party or you and your beau plan to incorporate your favorite sports team into the details, conjuring up creative table names is a great way to let your personalities shine. Of course, the easiest way to let your guests know where to sit is to divide the tables up numerically. You can still get creative with simple digits by purchasing large wooden address numbers, spray painting them to fit your color scheme and decorating them with colored ribbon and sparkly gems to sit beside your centerpieces. If you want to be a little more inventive, educate your friends and family by artistically labeling tables with your personal favorites. Below are 20 ideas to get the wheels spinning:

1. Favorite books. Make a list of your favorite books or simply books you’ve read and label each table accordingly. On the place cards, let your guests know whether they’re sitting at The Great Gatsby or Huckleberry Finn. Get your hands on a hard copy of each of the books, and display each book at the correlating table.

2. Favorite movies. Everyone appreciates cinema. Print out copies of original movie posters from your favorite films. Glue small versions of the posters onto distressed wood for a vintage look, and have your guests make their way down the red carpet and to their seats.

3. Sports. There are a couple ways you can do this. Name each table after a different sport you love, or choose a single team you both cheer for and have each table directly relate: team name, name of the stadium, names of famous players, etc.

4. Games. This is a great option if you know that your guests aren’t big dancers. Name each table after games you love to play, and provide that game for your friends and family to play when they’re all danced out. It’s probably best to go with games that aren’t too time-consuming or thought-provoking, like Jenga or a deck of cards.

5. Places you’ve traveled together. If you and your honey are little vagabonds or world travelers, you’ve surely snapped a few photos at each destination you’ve visited. Label your tables after all of the places you’ve traveled together, and include a photo of the two of you at each location.

6. Photos at every age. If you and your future spouse are similar in age, label the tables by year from birth on and include individual photos of him and her at each age. If there’s a slight age gap, label the tables numerically and use photos of the two of you from that particular age.
