Set the scene

For more place-based table name ideas, why not take inspiration from your venue? Barn venues will suit tables named after farmyard animals, garden venues could be named after blooms and wedding tables at a gallery could include famous artists' names.

In the spirit

Whether your tipple is whisky, wine or gin, collect up finished bottles to form the basis of your wedding table ideas. Your florist can fill them with flowers and each drink can become the table name.
