Table numbers may serve a practical purpose, but that doesn’t mean they have to be boring. Having a little fun with this detail is a simple, inexpensive way to enhance your reception decor. Add a unique, personal touch with any of these fabulous table number ideas.

Spelled out: Swap numerics for letters for a simple, subtle spin. Just make sure to choose a lettering style that suits your overall motif. Convey a classic feel with fancy script or calligraphy, or go with a bright sans-serif for a playful, modern quality.

Hand painted: Paint numbers on cardstock, wood, tin, or glass to give your tablescape a lighthearted touch.

Part of the centerpiece: You don’t have to create a separate table number – just add a number to the vessel! Combine fashion and function with numbered centerpieces.

Framed: Display table numbers in photo frames that complement your wedding style. Go with a pronounced material like weathered wood or colored enamel, or choose a simple frame and mount the numbers on a fun patterned fabric.

Three-dimensional: Make a statement with freestanding numbers made from cardboard, metal or wood. Paint them to match your color scheme, cover them in fabric or natural material, leave them bare, or mix and match different styles.

Rustic Lodge Wedding in College Station, Texas

Posted by Jeffra on Jan 31, 2012

Chelsea & Andy

April 2

College Station, Texas

This is a very fun and energetic couple. They had their wedding at 7F Lodge in Texas. It’s a rustic venue with a gorgeous ceremony location (as you can see below)! Country Sugar Events created a uniquely detailed setting for the reception, including mini chalkboard signs, birdcage centerpieces, and wild flowers. What makes this wedding, though, is certainly the couple and their bridal party!

Flower poms are something your florist can pull together for you pretty easily as they have all of the tools needed. This is a babies breath hanging pom, which is so elegant and simple. I love this idea! {Photo Credit: Jonathon Ong}
