Numero Uno

Some couples decide to personalize their reception tables by selecting words, places or anything they can think of. While it's great to be creative, if you have a long guest list it can be difficult for people to find their seats if tables aren't numbered.

Think about it. If there are a lot of tables, numbers help guests find their seat because the room is divided into even and odd numbers. If someone is searching for the "romance" or "Paris" table it will be more difficult to find because the table could really be anywhere in the room. And lets face it, you don't have time to handout a map to guide them.

If you want to expand on your theme then use numbers and display them in creative ways - calligraphed or printed in an interesting font, print them on colored/themed papers, or find an interesting material to use.

The metal numbers pictured above are from Gauge Inc. They can easily stand on a tables and would be great for a wedding with a modern or art deco theme. The company also makes metal letters and monogrammed cake toppers that you can save as a wedding momento.
