Table names or numbers are important in ensuring that everyone knows where to be seated in a timely manner for the wedding dinner. However, many couples opt not to have simple table numbers, choosing instead to think up original and personalised ideas of things to write on table cards at their wedding. Your venue will usually number the tables unless you choose to name them, so plan ahead.

Photo Table Cards
If you want to use table numbers, consider placing a photo of the couple from a different time or event in their life on each table -- a camping trip, a birthday party and an outdoor festival, for example. Table number 1 would have the earliest photo.
Travel-Related Table Cards
Couples who have travelled a lot might wish to name each table after a country, city or landmark that they have visited together. If a particular city is especially important -- for example, it might be where the groom proposed -- then couples could name each table after a famous landmark in that city. Couples living in London, or for whom London holds special significance, could name tables after underground stations and draw a seating plan to look like a "tube" map.
Music-Related Table Cards
Couples who share a love of music or a passion for playing instruments could name their tables after bands, composers or musical instruments. Band table cards could feature brightly coloured album artwork for an extra decorative twist.
Romantic Table Cards
For romantic table cards, choose a different language for each table and write that language's word for love on the card. You could decorate the card with the flag of the country where the language is spoken.
