If you’re having a sit-down wedding breakfast as part of your big day, then a table seating plan and table names or numbers are an essential part of the on the day stationery you’ll need! I recently wrote a blog all about tips for the table seating plan which you can read here.

The table names are a fab opportunity to bring your personality and creativity as a couple to your wedding day. There are lots of ideas you could use to name the tables, such as countries you’ve travelled to as a couple or your favourite cities.

Hannah and Tom chose an arched table name printed in gold foil on blush pink which were positioned amongst their beautiful blooms, as part of their gorgeous pink and gold wedding colour palette.

Favourite drinks or food are a popular choice for table names, particularly different types of wines just like Clare and Joe chose for their burgundy rustic wedding. The pops of watercolour burgundy on the stationery looked fab combined with the beautiful florals.

This table name was a beauty personalised with rust calligraphy, a curved edge and positioned in a gold frame for a warm muted tones autumnal wedding.

Other ideas for names include your favourite flowers or plans, favourite songs or bands or anything you enjoy together such as films, musicals, plays or TV shows. You can be as creative as you like and have fun, just like this cheeky monochrome table name!

Lauren and Tom chose their table names to be an illustration of different lakes within the Lake District combined with hand drawn calligraphy and a touch of gold leaf, placed in gold frames. The couple visited the lakes when they were engaged so this was a personal touch for them.

As an alternative to naming each table, you can use simple numbers or even roman numerals, just like this one with a hand painted pale blue background and my signature hand drawn calligraphy in white.

There are different ways of making the table number special, for example this arched minimalist table number features a little welcome message along the curved edge for guests as they sit down at the table.

Or, I can add floral illustrations to the design if they’ve been used in the stationery, such as this table number nestled into the eucalyptus on the table.

Little finishing touches such as ribbon looks lovely too. Laura and Matthew’s dusky blue barn wedding featured Laura’s family tartan ribbon which was tied to each table number.

All the wedding table names or numbers are designed in the same style as the rest of your wedding stationery for a cohesive look and feel. If you’ve opted for colourful stationery, then it’s another way to add some colour into the wedding styling on the tables too!

This table name is from the Amelia wedding stationery collection with a watercolour foliage design and hand drawn calligraphy. A curved card gives a modern contemporary feel. All of the LouPaper wedding stationery collections can be customised to suit the colour palette and style of your wedding day.

Personalised Table Names or Numbers

I hope this blog helps with thinking about your wedding table names or numbers. There’s some more inspiration here and lots more on my Instagram and Pinterest accounts too.

I typically work on the on the day signage around 8 weeks before the wedding day, once the guestlist is confirmed so make sure you leave enough time to get in touch if I haven’t worked on your save the dates or wedding invites!

I would love to help create your dream wedding stationery and signage. A great starting point is the curated collection of stationery designs on my website. Each collection includes everything from save the dates through to the on the day items.

Please get in touch with me here with any questions or if you would like to go ahead with an order. I’m excited to hear from you!
