You may have already thought up the perfect wedding table names or have decided to go for classic numbers, but have you thought about how you will present them? We’ve rounded up 23 table number holders to inspire you – who knew there were so many options?
If you’re having a traditional wedding keep it classic with silver table number holders. They look elegant and stylish and will suit a variety of wedding styles without looking too contrasting.
This set up from Norton Park looks so elegant as the silver of the stand ties in with the base of the centrepiece.
The Captain’s Club Hotel also shows how a classic silver stand works with a silver centrepiece display.
Paul and Francesco had a chic monochrome wedding colour scheme, but they still included silver table name holders.
You could add a twist to the traditional look with these silver holders from BellaBrideCreations on Etsy which have a pretty heart shaped base. Or why not go for gold?

These log style holders are made from fallen tree branches from the Sassafras tree (which is where root beer comes from!) so they are really natural and rustic. You get 10 in one order, so you could even order lots and use them for displaying flat place cards too.

If you want a more mismatched look, consider the holders from PlaceCardHolderShop on Etsy, which uses a variety of different woods.
Rather than tree slices, SnakeInChest on Etsy uses half branches for a twist on the popular log slice style.
If you and your partner are a fan of wine, this one would be easy to DIY! Simply collect up your wine corks and cut a slit into them, and use them to display the table names. If you’re worried they’ll get lost on the tables, put them back into the top of the bottle before slotting the table name or number in. If you don’t fancy drinking 12 bottles of wine before your wedding, Etsy has you covered!
