When it comes to your seating plan at your reception, it can turn into a nightmare ! Uncle Tom wants to be far away from Aunt Sue and your friends want to be all seated near each other. You want everyone to be happy, including yourself .... I know you will work it all out so let's talk table numbers. Do you remember the medal stands with the circle on top that the numbers went into ? Well forget about them !Here are some great examples on how you can be sure that your guests will be dancing to the correct table. I am doing a wedding in April and they are getting married on the beach. The table centres are beach orientated so the holders for the table numbers are going to carry on the same theme. The bride found shiny silver plated clam shells with a slit on top that the table numbers will fit right into ? Cool right ?
Last year, I did a wedding and the couple were wine connoisseurs. Their table numbers were bottles of wine from different regions. Not only were they different, their guests got to learn more about the couple that they were toasting to, and they were able to test their palettes with new wine. Look for new innovative ideas that go along with the theme of your wedding.
Adding texture to the overall look of your tables is always a plus so begin your search for the perfect way to advertise the number of your tables. Oh, and unless your last name is Hatfield or McCoy, I am sure the seating chart will be just fine !
