We received a lovely email from a customer earlier in the week telling us about the table plan they had for their recent wedding. They have very kindly allowed us to blog about it here.
Emma and Chris married in Southwick, West Sussex on the 8th December. They made their table plan themselves – Chris printed the names onto card and Emma mounted them onto navy blue card and then onto the mountboard.
Their tables were square shaped with ten guests sat at each table.
We often advise giving tables names rather than numbers as numerical tables could possibly imply a hierarchy. Emma and Chris, however, had the brilliant idea of using non-sequential numbers that are relevant to them as a couple. We’ll be adding that idea to our page of ideas for table names!
They had the following table numbers:
- 01 – Number of years engaged
- 03 – Number of years together
- 04 – Date we met
- 07 – Date we moved in together
- 10 – First holiday
- 11 – First date
- 16 – Our first house
- 17 – Our first flat
- 25 – Date Chris proposed
- 52 – Miles between London & Brighton (when they met Emma lived in London and Chris in Brighton)
Thanks again to Emma and Chris for sharing this with us. It’s always lovely to see what our customers do with their table plans and table names. If you’d like to submit your own, please see the information on this page.
