Top ideas for table names

One decision that couples tend to have difficulty agreeing on, is what to call their tables, do they choose numbers or name them? If they name them what should it be, should it reflect the theme or have meaning to them. Before I give you some top ideas I thought I would share with you some favourite past table names of my clients over the years. Many clients opt to have names of places meaningful to them as a couple – as these are very personal I have decided not to share those examples with you, sticking instead to theme names.
