Table numbers are an important element of the wedding reception, helping direct guests to their assigned seat. Of course, basic table-number cards in stands are all you need, but then again, you could use this as an opportunity to get really creative with your table décor.
For example, if you’re going with a fun, nautical theme for your celebration, embrace the waterside setting with a complementary table-number concept. Choose details made from cotton rope or assign each table a different nautical flag; you could also go for a “message in a bottle” idea by printing table numerals on sheets of paper and inserting them into clear water jugs or wine bottles. Whatever you decide, just be sure that the table numbers are clear, legible, and easy for guests to spot as they are scanning the reception room.
