What shall we name our tables?

A question we are frequently asked for advice on is a theme/ideas for table names.




It has to be a difficult  choice as a list of inspirational suggestions is endless.


Ibiza Clubs

Road names of all the houses that you had lived in

Places of interest, towns etc in country/ place where you were engaged

Underground stations

Mountain names / Ski resorts



Hotels you have stayed in or will stay on honeymoon







The ideas can come from the couples interests, places they have been together, experiences you have enjoyed together, here are just a few ideas.

Places close to the wedding venue i.e. The Lake District and Lake names

Soap Operas

Favorite Film Titles

Favorite TV shows

“Love” in  different languages

words from the first dance, your favourite song


This list could be endless but hopefully gives some starting points

One of my personal favorites is a recent couple who chose their most liked comedy shows with a line from the show.







You may be having a military wedding and so regiments,famous battles, ships, aircraft etc

A quick quiz in our shop is to ask customers to identify the theme on one table plan

and the answer is cuts of diamond. You could choose precious stones or birthstones.

Football (rugby, cricket golf ,tennis etc) teams, clubs,grounds, legends

Animals (birds,fish,cats, dogs, butterflies etc)


Songs,music, instruments

Your wedding will be taking place during one of the four seasons or maybe at a notable date like Christmas when carols could be your theme,

or if your table number count is low the 7 dwarves to the 12 days of christmas.


This is one area not short of inspirational ideas,however, if in the face of such huge choice there is an alternative


but with some creativity even numbers can be made to look good !!!!!!!

Now, you have many ideas to start you off

Which will you choose?

Or do you have something completely different……………………….
