Fun Table Name Ideas

Fun ways to name your wedding reception tables.

Generally when you go to a wedding, tables are assigned by numbers. To make your wedding more unique and personal you can use table names instead. This is also a good icebreaker for the people at the table and gives them something to talk about. Here are some fun ideas on how to name your tables:  

  • Hobbies - Words that are connected with something you both love to do (ex. golfers- fairway, 19th hole, green, etc)  
  • Songs - Names of songs by artist you both like  
  • "I Love You" - In different languages  
  • Where You Met - Reference to places where you met. If you met at a university use landmarks, bars, colleges from that town
  • Famous Couples - Like Sandy and Danny, Lady and The Tramp, Desmond and Penny, etc.
  • Year - Name each table a different year and put a picture of you and your fiance from that year to go with it  
  • Places You've Been - Name each table after a vacation spot you and your fiance traveled to, accompanied with a picture and description about the trip
  • Theme - If you're into an Old Hollywood theme, use movies or actors/actresses from that time period

For a Mardi Gras-themed wedding, the tables were all named for prominent New Orleans parading Krewes (Bacchus, Orpheus, Zulu, Endymion, etc.). The table name card included the year the Krewe was founded and a brief history. Naturally, the head table was named the "Krewe of Rex," since Rex is the traditional King of Carnival in Mardi Gras lore. As an aside, that one decision -- Mardi Gras -- answered many other questions: Colors (purple, green and gold), music ("Second Line," "Mardi Gras Mambo," "If Ever I Cease to Love" and pretty much anything by Professor Longhair and The Meters), menu selections, souvenirs (authentic Mardi Gras beads and aluminum coins from past parades), and so on.
