Make It Personal: Unique Wedding Table Number Ideas

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.

Light Up Your Reception: Stunning Ways To Use Candles In Wedding Centerpieces

Nothing sets a romantic mood like candles. As the temperature starts to dip, our weddings move to indoor venues where the atmosphere is warm and lovely, but natural light may be lacking.

Candles come in a variety of options including pillar, taper, votive, and tea light.

From cozy and intimate to modern chic to grand opulence, here are stunning ideas for using candles in your wedding reception décor.

Wedding Photo Booths With Social Media Savvy


Rent a photo booth for your wedding and watch your guests pose, flirt, and dissolve into giggles. Photo booths bring out everyone’s silly side. For proof, look no further than the photo above! That’s us goofing around in Shake and Share Media’s photo booth at the Sophisticated Weddings magazine release party at Tribeca Rooftop.

If you usually think vintage charm when you think wedding photo booths, you’ll be as delighted as we were to discover that they offer so much more than black & white strips. Shake and Share Media booths feature flattering studio lighting, romantic, playful props for guests (we loved the glitter-heart antennas) and instant prints customized with your wedding date, names or a monogram. All photos are also instantly uploaded to an online gallery. Guests use social media kiosks to tag themselves and share on their own social media accounts.
