.. – 100 Fun, unusual, quirky and different ideas for table names at your wedding. Well nearly 100! (thanks everyone for helping me to add to this list with all your ideas!) It seems that couples are picking creative and fun names for their wedding tables – something personal, meaningful to them or that fits in with their wedding theme.
At our wedding we had ‘special’ places – the roads we grew up on, our parents house, the flat that we first shared. the places that we had been on holiday etc. At the time I remember thinking how original, but having done a bit more research I realise that many other couples have the same idea as us! So, I thought I’d collate a list of 100 wedding table names to give you some inspiration.. please help me out here and add any suggestions (leave a comment and let me know what you had or are planning to have at your wedding!)
