I love these two – what a truly fabulous picture. Sourced from the wonderful Hatunot Blog that features really beautiful Israeli weddings. See more pictures of Dror and Yoni’s wedding on Hatunot here.
It’s the little details that your guests will notice at your wedding, and your table numbers are no exception. You can have fun and really represent yourselves as a couple, plus they can break the ice and start conversation and you can let your guests get to know you know as a couple even more.
Here are 5 table number ideas to inspire you:
2. Use pictures of the bride and groom at ages corresponding with the table numbers.

4. Each table number is a different fact about the bride and groom.
Not content with a boring old paper wedding invitation, illustrator, Jessica Hische, and Facebook designer, Russ Maschmeyer, created possibly the most imaginative wedding invitation I’ve ever seen.
They made a simply gorgeous website, entitled The Story of Jess and Russ (click here to check it out), to tell the story of their romance, from meeting and engagement to career highs and lows, and invite guests to their wedding. A truly modern invite, it even features links out to photos on Flickr and images stored in the Cloud, as well as moving graphics that appear as you scroll down the page.

Add a decorative touch to your wedding invitations with customised DIY paper liners to reflect the style of your wedding. I love the idea of incorporating maps of your wedding location, photos personal to you, literature from an old romance novel, or anything at all connected to the theme / colour scheme of your wedding.
Below are instructions to create stylish, cost-effective wedding invitations using any type of paper as envelope liners.

Tracing the shape for the liner:
Lay your lining paper on a flat surface. Using one of your envelopes trace around the envelope ensuring that the top flap is open to get the basic shape of the envelope.
Then move the envelope down slightly and trace a second line around the “top flap” of the envelope. (This is to allow a small seam around the top of the envelope when we glue the liner in.) This is the line you will be cutting along.
Cutting out the liner:
Carefully cut around your marked area, remembering to cut along the second marker line you made around the top flap. (You can use shaped scissors to give a more decorative look.)
Gluing the liner:
Insert the liner into the envelope, flip down the top triangle and only use glue on this section. (if you put glue on the bottom area the envelope will not close properly).

This is a beautifully fresh and intimate summer wedding, set on a magical garden rooftop in the heart of London, that oozes style and elegance. It’s also the magical wedding of my brother, André, and my amazing sister-in-law, Lee Ann, so it has a very special place in my heart… (and if you look closely you can spot me in red Vivienne Westwood in the big group picture at the end!)
But back to the wedding – I loved Lee Ann’s idea of taking the shade of her apple green sash on her dress and using the fresh green colour throughout all kinds of details on her day.
And how did these two meet? Well it’s verrrry romantic: Lee Ann, a Floridian, and André, a born-and-bred Londoner, married after a whirlwind long-distance romance. They met on a 5-day Caribbean cruise in September 2006, were engaged 6 months later, and were married, less than a year to the day they met, in August 2007.
Lee Ann, the Bride: Kensington Roof Gardens was our perfect venue. Towering above central London, the stunning gardens, complete with house flamingoes, seemed like the 8th wonder of the world! We wanted somewhere central as there were quite a few foreign guests in town for only a few days, but equally we wanted a beautiful, garden setting. Nothing could have been more perfect, and to top it all, Claire Vidler and her events term were superb to deal with throughout.
The magic ingredient, of which we have only the Gods to thank, was being blessed with glorious sunshine on the day.
THE DRESS WHICH LEAD TO THE THEME
My dress was by Vera Wang. I wanted something different and loved the ivory colour teamed with an apple green sash- perfect for our summer garden setting! In fact, the colour of the apple green sash set the theme of the wedding throughout, and the same shade was used on the invitation design, and all sorts of details from the sashes on the backs of the chairs to the flowers to the ribbons on the cake to the ketubah illustrations.
We used a wonderful florist called Rebecca Fiest. I loved the idea of small arrangements all of one colour, and Rebecca interpreted my ideas sensitively and brilliantly. She also did such a beautiful job with the chuppah. I knew I wanted it to be constructed from bamboo poles with fresh spring flowers, and it couldn’t have turned out more beautifully.
