Throughout this blog I’ve covered a whole variety of unusual wedding table plans, the majority of which take as their theme some personal interest, career choice or significant aspect of the shared lives of the Bride and Groom. From police inspired wedding table plans to the table of elements, they almost all start with the Bride and Groom.
But I recently came across an example which didn’t have anything at all to do with the happy couple, but instead took as its inspiration the location where they chose to be married. Louise and Grant were married in a stunning Scottish castle, and used this idea as inspiration for their table plan. The chart itself was drawn to resemble an imaginative plan of the castle, with all of the traditional rooms labelled.
Each table was drawn as a coat of arms, with a traditional Scottish clan name being attributed to each. They even decided to add ‘Mc’ or ‘Mac’ to each of their guests’ names, so Mark Davidson became Mark McDavidson, and Michelle Collins became Michelle MacCollins!
Perhaps if your thinking about wedding table plans and wondering what theme to use it might be worth considering the location and venue you’ve chosen, in case that can offer any inspiration?
