Assigned seating at a wedding reception is proper etiquette because it makes it easy for guests to find a seat. All they have to do is find their seating card, which will indicate their table. Couples often use numbers to differentiate between tables, but to add a unique twist, you can assign tables different names in lieu of the traditional numbers.

If you and your betrothed are wine connoisseurs, you can consider using the names of different types of wines for your tables. For example, you can name tables Chardonnay, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. To keep with the wine them, you may opt to name tables after different vineyards you have visited. To add to this theme, you can use small wine bottles or corkscrew openers as seating cards.

Tropical Islands

Tropical islands may be your thing. The sand, sun and surf of these havens may be what you and your fiancée truly enjoy. Using the names of different tropical islands that you have visited, or intend to visit, can bring a beach vibe to your wedding. For seating cards, you can use mini flip-flops, which you can purchase at My Wedding Favors.

Song Titles

If music is your thing, consider naming the tables at your wedding after your favourite song titles. For example, if The Beatles is your all-time favourite band, you may want to select some of their top songs as table names. Songs like "Love, Love Me Do" and "Good Day Sunshine" may be a good choice to tie into a wedding.


If you are a movie buff, movie titles may be an idea to use for your wedding table names. Selecting love stories, such as "An Affair to Remember" and "Casablanca," as table names would be appropriate for a wedding. However, if love stories aren't your thing, you can choose whatever genre you like or mix and match genres. Either way, guests will appreciate your affection for the movies if you choose this unique option for naming the tables at your wedding.


The central theme of all weddings is love. To show your new spouse just how much you love him and to share your love with your guests, saying "I Love You" in different languages would be an ideal way to name your tables. Use a heart picture frame with the table name inserted inside of it to mark the table.


If you are having a wedding in the spring or if you just love nature, naming your wedding tables after your favourite flowers is something you may want to consider. For seating cards, you can use a small vase with the table name inscribed or painted on it.


Gemstones add sparkle to any celebration. Using the names of different gemstones, such as ruby, sapphire, emerald and of course, diamond, for your wedding tables may help bring that added glitz to your celebration.


You and your spouse may be seasoned travellers. If so, using the names of different countries you have visited may be a novel idea for your wedding table names. Use an enlarged map of the country to indicate each table's name.
