I’m a big supporter and fan of Etsy shops and have been wanting to share a few of my favorites that I used for my wedding reception back in September. First up is Wine Accents by Linda, a shop that sells wooden table numbers, other wooden cutouts and wine accessories. Linda, the shop owner, is awesome to work with and she made some awesome table numbers for our reception.
My favorite thing about the table numbers is that they’re 1 inch thick, so they stand up on their own. I was on the hunt for wooden table numbers after I saw a few examples on Pinterest, but I found that most of the DIY options required wooden stands. To me, that added an unnecessary step – and when you’re wedding planning, being as efficient as possible is a must for your own sanity.
The table numbers are available in three different sizes – 4″, 5″ and 6″ – and while these really are the ideal size for table numbers, she does offer additional sizes if you request them. Each number is cut on a scroll saw, then sanded smooth to make it easy for you to paint them to match your wedding colors or stain them if you prefer the wooden look.
As you’ll see below in a photo from our wedding, we spray painted the table numbers with gold paint and they came out great! If you check out Linda’s Etsy page, you can also see a few other examples from past brides show different ways that they can be painted and displayed.

Linda also offers wooden initials and Mr. & Mrs. signs that could be used on a sweetheart or candy table, or you could incorporate your last name initial onto a centerpiece at your reception as well. Not only is she open to custom projects, but she also is really great to work with! She answered all of my questions very quickly and was very friendly and helpful. As a result of my great experience working with Linda, as well as the great finished numbers, one of my friends is now using my table numbers for her own wedding!
The price per number or letter ranges from $4-$6 each for single letters and numbers, and double digit numbers range from $6-$9 each, which is actually a 25% discount off of two numbers. Based on my research, I found these prices to be really reasonable given the quality.
