Table numbers

Hey all!!!

So I'm having a (light) gaming theme for our wedding and I made these table numbers the other night. I'm thinking about naming the tables "Level 1", "Level 2", etc instead of table 1, table 2, etc.

What do you all think?

My fiancé wanted to name them character names or the "land" the games take place in, but I think olders guests won't get it and something with numbers would make it easier to find the table (even if you don't know who the characters are).

I'd love to hear what you think!

    Smart thinking and notjing wrong with being nerdy about video geames, characters and super heroes with levels. Your designs look fantastic and creative. How are they holding up onthe tables?

    Of course! I made mine using a Cricut machine (cuts out designs that you upload to it). But this was a pretty simple template, Lia Griffith has some in PDF that you can print cut and assemble (you need a subscription to the site, but it's only $7/month and she has SO MANY beautiful templates!!! Totally worth it)

    And we will be having escort cards cut in the same shapes with their names and table number, like so (but with better font)...

    Escort cards - 2

    And then we will have place cards at the seats, like this...

    My FH and I are both nerds and thinking of naming our tables after some of our favourite book characters, superheroes and other things. It's your wedding so do what you like and what makes you happy! If there is a list for your seating chart maybe include a picture of the character so that people can simply visually identify their table.

    Thanks Nelly! Yours are SO CUTE Smiley love Are you having anything else with them as a centerpiece or are the numbers just two-fold (a table number AND a centerpiece)?

    I love these ideas!! this is so creative! i think naming your tables by levels is a great idea and way more original than just having table 1, 2, etc.

    Yeah, don't worry about it at all. Smiley tongue My Mom (65) could probably name 3/4, and my Dad about the same (68) - but it's unique and cool. I've been told over and over again that it's about me and Jake as much as everyone else, because I am constantly thinking of everyone other than us. Hahaha.

    Haha thanks Amanda! I was more thinking the older crowd wouldn't know any of the games (my mom could probably name 3), but I feel everyone at least understands the concept of "levels". I'm over thinking it!

    I don't even consider myself a gamer and I was able to name every single one of these - but "table numbers one" was easier. Hahaha. I think this is super cute, and that they look great. Don't worry about the "level" thing - if there is someone older who does not understand I am sure there will be someone who can explain. Even my Grandma (now deceased) would have known what a level is at 88 years old. She was around us gaming all the time when my brother and I were young - even thought she did not play.

    Hi Valerie! Smiley heart

    I am totally in love with your DIY ideas! Smiley love I like the idea of naming them after the games! Your guests might not know the characters' names or land, but they probably heard of the game before. I also like the idea of levels, like Sharon mentionned it could be a bit confusing, but other couples did it and it seems to have worked.

    You could also use the main colours of each game to decorate your wedding tables like in this picture.

    You can make a plan of the room to help you set your table with the Table Planner tool.

    You also just inspired me this discussion, I'd love to see what you think! Smiley smile

    I love the table numbers Valerie. Very creative and unique. Both are great. If I was to choose I would got for table number 1 for the cool figures.

    Hey Sharon! Nice to meet you here too! HAHA Smiley laugh very true. I'm just trying to think of something alittle more "on theme" and fun than "table 1".

    Any ideas?

    Heyy valerie!! nice to meet you in here! I think it's a great idea!!! but if you call them levels won't people think they have to go from one table to another to get to the next level? i'm just wondering if people might get confused but otherwise i think it's a great idea!!
