When it comes to your wedding, it goes without saying that you’ll want to put your own personal stamp on the day in as many ways as possible. One idea for bringing more of your personalities into the day is by giving your wedding table names a theme. Instead of the traditional ‘Table One’ and ‘Table Two’, why not go for names that are a little more YOU? Not only is will this make your wedding day more personal to you, but it will also be a great talking point amongst your guests. You can even think of ways to tell your love story through your wedding table plan - for example, how about using names of countries you’ve visited together, or perhaps special milestone dates in your relationship?

If you’re wondering what to name your wedding tables - look no further. Here are 50 great ideas to give you some inspiration!
