Should you have table names or numbers at your wedding? You decide really, there is no hard & fast rule as to what you should have & many couple choose name to reflect a part of thier passion & personality.
undecided? When choosing your overall theme for your wedding day is there something that pops out at you? The one above is an example of a bride & grooms choice of retro sweets & there are plenty of those to choose from, if you have a beach theme wedding you could choose tropical Islands, fish or shells. Wild West could be saloons, outlaws or cowboys in film. Just make sure your chosen theme has enough names to cover the amount of tables you have.
Or you could just go for classic numbers in either a, digit, roman numeral or written word.
you don't have to have a matching number/name to your table plan either maybe you could have a complimenting design using mini planters & mini blackboard tags or huge wooden numbers free standing painted in your colours, these are more widely available in the UK now.
Whatever you decide just make sure you are both happy, remember its your day, don't be swayed.
