Reception Table Number Ideas

As a bride, you will be rushing around getting photographed, making your entrance and signing your marriage license. You won’t have time to personally escort each guest to their table. That’s where table numbers and seating charts come in to play. Below are some ideas for creative ways to guide your guests to their seats at your reception.

Wood Slices – Eat Drink Chic shows you how to transform wood slice coasters into fabulous rustic table numbers. There is even a free download of a nature inspired number set for you to download to create the table numbers.  

Frames – Using frames is a classic way to mark the tables, especially for a more formal wedding. But even with this traditional look you can still have a little bit of fun. Rather that numbers, why not use a theme for each table? As seen in this barn wedding, you can use favorite song lyrics. Other ideas include favorite travel spots or favorite books. The options are endless.

Wine bottles – If you plan to have wine on the tables,create custom labels for the bottles to include the able numbers, as seen here by Martha Stewart. 

Embroidery hoop numbers – Feeling creative? These embroidery hoop table numbers are lovely. If you don’t sew or don’t want to spend the time stitching, try using an iron on transfer or other technique to get the look without the time investment.   

After signing the guest book, finding their seat is the next thing your guests will do at the reception. Your table numbers will help set the tone for the reception, so make it unique and memorable.
