Taking a cue from all the bridal articles, magazines, websites I’ve been reviewing, I really wanted to integrate our personalities into the reception as much as possible.  One of the easiest and certainly the cheapest ideas I had was to name the dinner tables after cars.

Each table is provided a 5×7 frame from the club and we could use numbers or whatever we want in the frame.  Given Drew’s profession and love for cars, we thought it would be fun to use pictures of cars to name each table.

I figure with about 300 people and 10 people per table, we are looking at approximately 30 tables to name.   I’m excited too, I think it will be funny to add the cars and tributes to the people who owned them (in some cases).  There will have to be a 2004 Camry LE in honor of the bride and in honor of the groom an  Infiniti I-30, Dodge Magnum, Camaro Z28.  I figure we will have to have a table with the Queen Mary and a Ford Taurus (a long line of them!) to honor my parents and then an MGBGT and Infiniti to honor Drew’s parents.  In any case, it should be fun!

When I helped Drew cover the Ault Park Concours, I got to take pictures out of the car window and here is the one that made it on to – the Delage!

Other cars that will probably make the cut:

Dodge Challenger

Ferrari Scuderia

Some sort of Corvette (Drew is getting one to test drive in August!)

1969 Camaro

Bently/Rolls Royce (for my uncle Tom/Mike)

Gremlin (Goedde kids’ car and Drew’s parents had one!)

Ford Taurus – these have been company cars for so long and the family kept buying them (all the Goeddes) to the point where one time at a family gathering at my grandparent’s house, the neighbor asked if anyone worked at a Ford dealership.  I personally drove at least 3 different Tauruses (?) in my highschool/college years.

I’m kind of excited for this little project, it will be cheap and easy and very personalized!

    It’s Uncle Mike with the Bently, Tom always has a Mercedes. How about the Lincoln Station Wagon “Woody” I used to drive when you were kids, be perfect for our friends from Toledo. Also, our F150 Pick up Truck too!
