Thinking up creative table names is a fun way to add personality to your wedding and to reflect you both as a couple. There's no reason why you can't just stick to numerical table names but with so many alternative options why not opt for something a little more unique?

Whether you choose wedding table names that embrace your wedding theme or opt for something silly to add even more fun to your wedding reception, let this list of 52 wedding table name ideas inspire you.
