We’re on to our next installment of the “Do This, Not That” series, sharing how small tweaks can make a big difference in your wedding design. Today’s detail is the table number- one of my favorite wedding details! Early on in my days as a wedding planner, I fell in love with table numbers, and how they are a small detail that can have a big impact.

A little reminder about the “Do This, Not That” series, in case you missed the first one: In this series, you will see several elements of a wedding design done two ways, all photographed by Caroline & Evan Photography and designed by Amber Veatch Designs. One way is the “Not That” way- generic, non-personal, and lacking intentional design. The second is the “Do This” way, in which the element is taken a step further in personalization or design. The whole goal of this series is to show the amazing things that design can do for your wedding look, and I hope it will inspire you to design your wedding with intention!

Here is Amber’s insight:

It sounds funny but I feel like I could talk about table numbers all day. Mostly because the possibilities are endless. I always encourage my couples to take the table numbers or names as an opportunity to add some of their personality into the décor. In this design we used a hand-lettered frame, adding a bit of personality and elegance, as well as a pop of gold to tie in with the other gold accents. This really helps tie the overall theme together. In the past I have had couples use traditional table numbers but displayed them in vintage frames because a lot of their décor had vintage elements. In addition to a table number they used the other side of the frame to explain different memories together that corresponded with that number.
