Wedding Table Names

Whilst numbering your tables may seem like a simple option, it can potentially lead to disgruntled guests. Whether implied or purely accidental, the general belief is the higher the table number, the more important the guest. So, whilst it may not even have crossed your mind, you can rest assured that your cousin on table 6 is more than a little peeved that your other cousin is seated nicely on table 2.



Coming up with wedding table names in lieu of numbers is a great way to get around any potential favouritism and help put your guests on a level playing field. Not only that, but wedding table names also allow the couple to stamp their identity on the day and have a little fun along the way.



Wedding Table Name Options

When it comes to wedding table names, the world is your oyster and you can be as simple or elaborate as you wish. Whilst naming them after something completely unrelated like colours or countries is an option, it is far more common to choose wedding table names that really do mean something to the newlyweds. Here are some of the more common options chosen by couples....



Names Linked to the Wedding Itself

Many weddings these days have a theme of one description or another. Whether it's obvious and prominent or something a little more subtle, a wedding theme can provide a great starting point from which you can devise your wedding table names. An elaborate theme, such as a Wild West wedding day, could be accompanied by wedding table names allocated to famous cowboys and indians - Sitting Bull, Jesse James and alike. For weddings taking place during December, how about opting for reindeer names - Comet, Cupid and friends?



Names Linked to a Destination

Whether it's the place you got engaged, the country you first met in or the location you're jetting off to on honeymoon, wedding table names linked to a destination are a popular choice. If New York is the place you proposed, how about naming your tables after famous skyscrapers - Empire, Chrysler, Trump and alike. Likewise, if you're heading to Disneyworld for your honeymoon, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Pluto are just some of the options that immediately spring to mind.



Names Linked to Hobbies and Interests

If you're both hot for salsa, raving for rugby or craving for cross-stitch (OK, perhaps not) then why not plump for wedding table names linked to your favourite hobby or interests? Football is a common theme with national team players, football grounds and past legends all popular choices.



Names Linked to Your Relationship

The whole day is all about love and romance so why not choose wedding table names that signify important points and occurances in your relationship? Tables named after the nightclub your first met in, the first place you visted overseas, the name of your first pet etc. are all viable options, and you are really only limited by your imagination (albeit be prepared as you may need to field questions on your wedding table names at a later date!).



There are literally hundreds of options available to couples considering opting for wedding table names over numbers, so if you have aunique idea you'd like to share, why not post it up on our wedding forum so others can take some inspiration.
