I am a big fan of making your wedding day totally unforgettable and UNIQUE. So it should be no surprise that I absolutely love when couples have themed table numbers!
Many of my clients have asked me to design table numbers for them that are unique and befitting their joyous event. I have had many requests for Chicago-themed table numbers, but I also get requests to reformat actual client photos which typically requires some editing/cropping, and/or change images to B&W or Sepia-tone, and addition of number/name over photo. Examples of these “client-provided photo” ones include the color photos of signs mounted on black cardstock were photos taken by the bride and then I cropped, color-corrected and overlayed text that mimicked the text in the signs themselves, then printed and mounted them to cardstock and attached a self-adhesive easel to the back of them. Also client-provided were the sepia-toned couple photos mounted on purple cardstock. These were photos taken of the couple on various trips and vacations and I just had to adjust the contrast, crop, overlay text and then print, mount and attach easel. For one of my ETSY clients I did 30 Broadway show poster-themed ones and another ETSY client requested cities they’ve visited to be featured. One of my favorite sets of custom table numbers were the wine bottle labels I made for a client that was having a Wine-Themed wedding (we even included the menu on the other side of the bottle). I also made really unique ones for my own wedding: they were round table numbers (8) with art terms and (8) with music terms and their definitions in our fonts and colors displayed on stands I made myself using wire and beads. They were a huge hit and not only did they teach our friends and family the definitions of some of the words that in fact, define us, but they also added to the ambiance rather than taking away from it. That is key when making these…the table numbers have to fit in with the rest of your decor. This includes not only you overall theme/color scheme, but also your lighting, linens, centerpieces, place-settings, escort cards, favors, etc. Well-coordinated decor makes for a beautiful and unforgettable ambiance.
