To Table

Marco and I both like to travel and have been on quite a few trips together. To represent our wanderlust I decided that I would give our reception tables place names instead of numbers.

I made a list of places that we had been together or would like to visit, of cities and countries that meant something to us.

I then googled for images of vintage travel posters for all the locations, which I printed out and inserted into these cool retro Tolsby frames that I got from IKEA. I bought them for £0.99 each, which I thought was an absolute steal.

I made a table plan for our guests by listing their names alphabetically together with their "destination" for the evening.
In the picture below you can see that each table is represented by a little circular map of its location. I fixed everything on a foam display board that I bought at Paperchase and placed it on an easel by the entrance to the function room.

  1. what an AWESOME idea. i just love it.

  2. I agree with Christy - great idea and it looks fantastic. I've just scrolled back through your Wedding posts and love how you managed to have a bilingual wedding. Interested to know how the speeches went and whether they were in english or german?

  3. We used these same frames for the menus at our reception! So cheap and handy, with the double sides. :)
