It's the Little Things that Make a Big Impact! Table Numbers
As your guests pick up their name cards and walk through the room to locate where they will be seated for the evening, do you want them to arrive at Table Number 4 only to see the blunt black font of the table number cards provided by the caterer? Dana Markos Events is constantly reminding our clients that making a wedding your own is all about the details. One of the small things that make a huge impact is creating special table numbers to continue the theme of your event! Designing a set of table numbers that keep the flow of your event going is a small cost for a big effect, remember, you should only need one per table!
If you have selected a beautiful color or color combination for your wedding, continue the atmosphere of the event by having your table numbers created using those hues! Whether you are trying to add a splash of color to the table, or bring out the vibrancy of your flowers, your table numbers will continue the path that your guest's eyes take across the table.
Don't forget to take the font style into consideration when having your table numbers designed. By using something more blunt, you will create a more modern feeling, while fonts like script of anything with an italic, will create a more traditional vibe.
For our clients who have selected a specific theme or style, such as nautical, romance, or contemporary styles, we encourage them to bring out the details of their event's theme by incorporating these ideas into the table numbers as well! Keeping up with your theme in the small details gives the overall event a greater feeling of consistency.
Perhaps your event does not have an exact theme or color concept, but if you are celebrating, why not make it all about you! Use details from your personal lives to give everyone in attendance some insight into your daily lives of how you grew up! From sharing your photos of you as children, or do something worth while with all of those engagement photos, you can give your guests the chance to see the people they are celebrating.
And don't think that you have to stop at simple paper. Get creative by using eclectic frames, or full out objects that keep your theme going! Having your wedding at a specific type of location like a library or museum opens up a whole new world of ideas, like the scrabble tiles below! Or maybe you are getting married at an old castle? The use of romantic scrolling frames would be the perfect fit.
When creating the atmosphere to your wedding or event, it is the little details that make or or break the event! If you want to keep your design consistent, you need to remember where your guests are going to be spending half of the evening, seated at their tables for the first dance, the meal, and dessert! Adding some type of detail or interesting piece to this area will only further show your guests the thoughtfulness and planning behind your big day.
