Wine & Beer Wedding Table Names

One of my very good friends got married this summer and boy, did they throw a party! When I'd imagined the perfect outdoor wedding reception, this was it! Everything from the hydrangea flowers, painted recycled bottles, use of burlap and lace, mason jars guest favors, outdoor games, frames hanging from a tree photo booth came together to create a cohesive, elegant and rustic outdoor celebration.

Guests found their tables by finding their name attached by a clothespin to a vintage door. After finding their name, guests deposited the clothespin in the basket and took a bare mason jar to stick their name tag.  Jars served as our drink glass for the night and were offered as favors as a keepsake.  Using mason jars is a downright genius idea for outdoor weddings!



The Bride and Groom distinguished their mason jar glasses from their guests by having them on a pedestal. What a fun and non-generic keepsake!


In love with DIY projects and hydrangeas, Sam's simple centerpieces were the perfect touch.  She took recycled glass bottles and painted them shades of purple to tie in her wedding color, then accented them with the burlap and lace. Small baby food jars made easy votives to arrange on the tables. One of the details I really enjoyed was the names of the tables. I always like when couples go beyond the basic numbered table and add a little creativity into their seating assignments. The two of them did a combo of beer and wine, just like the combo of glass bottles.  Check out Math Wedding Table Names if you're looking for another original table naming idea.

Benefits of using wine/beer table names include: can be year around, can be a fair representation of both couples taste, would be adorable for a vineyard setting, if the couple frequents vineyards/breweries and so forth. Small touches like these simple DIY centerpieces are what helps to personalize a wedding. Plus, they are just so darn cute.

  1. I recently went here for a party and right from the moment I walked in I was in awe and I can only hope my daddy dearest offers to pay for my wedding here someday! At NYC wedding venues they took care of every little detail one can think of.
