Table Talk: Elevate Your Wedding Reception Experience with Custom Table Numbers, Place Cards, and More

 At your wedding, every detail matters, from the venue to the invitations to the flowers, but often overlooked are the custom tabletop items that can truly elevate the guest experience at a wedding reception.  Here at Andi Mejia + Co Creative Studio, we believe in the power of personalized touches to create the most memorable and dreamy days that will live on in your and your guests’ minds for a lifetime. There is truly nothing like a well-set table to create an inviting and enchanting atmosphere.  In this blog, we will explore the importance of custom tabletop items such as menus, place cards, table numbers, and custom touches like thank you cards at a place setting.

Setting the Tone with Custom Menus

Menus serve a practical purpose by informing guests of the delicious and well-planned meal ahead. However, they can also be transformed into elegant works of art that echo your wedding branding and style.  Whether colorful or muted, monochromatic or modern, a beautifully designed menu not only adds visual appeal but also sets the tone for the entire reception. 

Personalized Place Cards: A Thoughtful Gesture

Someone famously said, “The sweetest sound to anyone’s ears is the sound of his own name.”  If hearing our name is sweet, then even sweeter is seeing it written with thoughtfulness and creativity.  Place cards are often underestimated as mere indicators of seating arrangements. However, they offer a wonderful opportunity to make each guest feel special and appreciated. 

Custom place cards designed with attention to detail within your wedding’s branding (and paired with one of AM+Co’s awe-inspiring seating charts) can be used as keepsakes or even double as wedding favors. By incorporating unique elements like calligraphy, watercolor, custom acrylic, or wax seals, you can infuse your personality into these small yet significant items.

Some couples choose to use color on the place cards to indicate meal selection, like Alexis and Kieran and Nancy and Trevor.  This simplifies service for the wait staff, ensuring a seamless experience at dinner for the guests.  

Add Style and Organization with Table Numbers

Table numbers are an essential part of any reception, providing a structured seating arrangement for guests. However, they need not be mundane or generic. Our selection of table numbers can harmonize with your wedding theme, adding elegance and charm to each table setting. We’ve transformed these functional elements into stunning pieces that seamlessly blend with the overall tastefulness of your tablescapes. We offer table numbers as a rental item, but only for weddings that we deliver (unfortunately, they can’t be shipped). 

We can also create customized table numbers made from cardstock.  This is a perfect way to harmonize your wedding branding even further!   

However, we do have a new offering in our shop of table numbers you can purchase, and we can ship anywhere, domestically.  These 5×7” table numbers are the perfect size for visibility,  printed on thick cardstock.  We offer a squiggle shape or arch shape in five color selections, and you can select from natural wood, white or black bases based on the look of your wedding.

Custom Touches: A Sweet Way to Say Thank You

Custom touches at a place setting can surprise and delight your guests.  One such item we’ve done several times is a personalized thank you card. You can even incorporate a thank you card into the menu itself!  These small tokens of appreciation not only convey your gratitude but also add a thoughtful touch to the reception. These little touches make your guests feel acknowledged and valued and go a long way in creating a warm and inviting atmosphere.  The sky’s the limit when creating customized tabletop touches – we love dreaming up new ways to bring a smile to your guest’s face!


If you want to elevate your wedding reception experience from ordinary to extraordinary, consider going custom!  These personalized elements contribute to the overall aesthetics, making your event visually captivating and memorable. but they showcase your attention to detail and the effort you put into creating a unique experience for your guests.

Your wedding reception is a blank canvas waiting to be transformed into a strikingly elegant experience. Custom tabletop items can elevate your celebration and leave a lasting impression on your guests. When you work with us, we ensure that every detail is meticulously crafted to reflect your wedding’s branding to create a truly unforgettable moment in time.
