Table names are a fun reception trend, and an easy way to get creative with your theme! What's your take on using table names instead of standard table numbers?

Are you giving table names a green or red light? 馃殾

    Red light. Numbers are much easier to find since they go in order (usually). With names, it鈥檚 a lot more searching

    Red light. Too much work to make up table names. It was time consuming enough to seat everyone

    Red light! We're keeping it simple and sticking with table numbers

    Green light.
    Each table is going to be a star constellation. I am hoping to make the seating chart sign a physical map of the room (with a little creative flare, of course Smiley winking ). I also want to put the constellation name and icon/picture on the corner of the escort cards. That way, no one is trying to remember Orion, Cygnus, and can just match up pictures...lol. I am going to make the signs a decent size too.

    Love the idea but red light for us. Going with the table numbers that come with the hall just for the sake of simplicity

    Green light as the tables were by colours and numbers on the idea of the pride flag.

    Red Light. We are just doing traditional table numbers. Some people in our family don't speak English as a first language and don't want to make it uncomfortable for them.

    Green light! We are actually doing pictures (like my profile picture on here) of The Doctor and his companion. It fits with our theme!

    Red light - We're just doing numbers to keep it simple. However we are planning on putting little facts about our relationship at the tables

    Red light. We thought about naming tables but I made really cute snowglobes and there is no room for names in them.Green or Red Light: Table Names? 2

    Red. Numbers are easier and I want to rent or sell them afterwards.

    Red Light- We just went with numbers to avoid confusion and having to come up with enough names

    I really like the idea of table names but haven't gotten to the point of deciding this yet.

    Green light. If we were having dinner I would have named each table, constellations or literary lovers etc.

    Green light. We're naming each table after the locations of where we spent each anniversary and then a little blurb about the significance of it. This also made sure to cut down on potential drama where guests won't make a fuss that they're not at a "higher" table.
