A couple of weeks ago i rounded up some table name ideas, which went down a storm. So today i am looking at the styling of your table plan.

If you are opting for an organised table plan, you can go all out and get totally creative. Enlisting a fabulous stationer to design a bold graphic design, or DIYing your own. Think about the theme or ideas behind your wedding day or table names. Use colours or items you love, or why not go for an escort card table.

All of the below table plans are from real weddings, by real couples featured on WWW, just click on the links below the image to see their whole wedding feature.




Who doesn’t love a pretty table plan? Go floral, use bunting, fabric or tissue paper to create the prettiest display.

Go for a graphic design, using clean lines, a great designer and a brilliant idea.

You cannot go wrong with a good old blackboard. Go stylish and paint up a piece of furniture using blackboard paint, or go for all out Hollywood glamour.

Luggage Tag


Luggage tags have to be one of the most popular go to items to use for a table plan right now, decorate a vintage suitcase and always use mini pegs.

Escort Cards


Escort cards are a tradition hitting the UK from the US. Go for sweet colourful cards or displays of fun items such as chocolate eggs in boxes.

You can easily DIY many of the above table plans, but i have one DIY tutorial i did a little while back now using clipboards. It’s so fun to come up with something unique to you.
