Table Numbers

I knew right off the bat that I wanted to do something different for my table numbers but I wasn't sure what. Last time I met with my florist I asked him if he had seen anything unusual that caught his eye while doing weddings. He said that he couldn't think of anything but that it sounded like a fun research project! My mom and I have been thinking about these table numbers in the back of our minds but not really making it a top priority. She had mentioned using frames to put the table numbers in. I know that isn't very original but she wasn't talking about just any old frame. She suggested doing something with the floating glass frames. So that got me thinking.

I started browsing Etsy after all the great things I have heard from other brides. Low and behold, what do I come across?!? THE PERFECT TABLE NUMBERS!!!! I quickly contacted the vendor and have officially ordered my table numbers! YAY!!!!

So, without further ado........

Not to be biased but these bad boys in a floating glass frame are going to look AWESOME (at least I think)! Word of warning, they aren't the cheapest at $3/number (we will have between 25-30 tables) but they are stunning.

Maybe in frames like these-
The owner said that I should be getting the die cut numbers in approximately 10 days. I cannot wait to see what they look like in a floating frame. I know that I am not really getting away from tradition but I am putting a twist on it. What do you think?

What are you doing for table numbers?

Update: Thanks to Chrissy at 3 Menschen. 2 Sakramente. 1 Liebe! She informed me about another great bride on Wedding Bee who is using these die cut numbers for her wedding. After reading her post I am going to have to possibly follow suit and add one more element to these gems- votive candles behind the frames to illuminate! You can also see additional work that Papercutdiecut does on this bride's post! ( I know, it is embarrassing to admit that I rarely followed Wedding Bee but that will all change).

hihi I saw them on weddingbee that afternoon, too ;-)
They look that gorgeous! And framed like that you planned to - I cannot wait to see the pics :-)
We'll give our tables names of destinations we've been together and for the wedding we will have photos of those destination in a frame...

Haha! I really need to start looking at Wedding Bee! That could have saved me time instead of browsing each page of Etsy.

LOVE THESE! I also saw them on Weddingbee, but she said hers were different from those pics anyway. Seriously though, such a neat idea. I'm sure they'll look fabulous! And that Etsy seller has some insane work! So beautiful!

Awesome and totally original!! I haven't quite decided. Thinking of taking vintage NYC photos and using those... Not that original, but could be cool.
