After walking the red carpet, guests entered the lobby of The Suffolk Theater for Melanie and Nick’s wedding.

Yani and Divinity completely ran with the idea in welcoming their family and friends.

There’s nothing we love more than to see a couple use wedding decor to share chapters from their love story. Table numbers are a great way to add a personal touch to your reception. The idea is not to over do it. You don’t want your wedding table numbers to outshine centerpieces and disrupt the decorative flow you worked so hard to achieve! Rather, they should complement the table atmosphere while expressing your love and personality. For the bride in need of inspiration, we went through the Real BB Wedding archives and rounded up our favorite table number designs.
