101 Great Ideas for Wedding Table Names

Wedding table number

At a wedding, tables are traditionally identified by a number. However, this can sometimes result in a perceived hierarchy with people complaining "I'm only at table 12 where so and so is on table 6".

To avoid this, you could use names for your wedding tables rather than numbers. These could be themed - for example people, objects or places that are relevant or meaningful to you as a couple.

With this in mind, we have collected together 101 of our top suggestions for table names. Following the hyperlinks will take you to associated articles from within our TopTablePlanner blog archive, or to a web page with more information to help you. Enjoy choosing your table names!
