If you’re having a Jubilee or British themed wedding then what could be more perfect than this London Underground map table plan!? Over to Gemma of
The Wedding of my Dreams who created this simple and cute tutorial!
We have recently added a range map prints to our collection with the suggestion that brides can use them as table plans. The bride and groom would name their tables after London tube stops which mean something special to them as a couple and the whole map can be made into a table plan.
So far the
London Underground maps have been most popular with our World map prints a close second! Supplies Needed:
♥ London Underground Map Print available for purchase via
Wedding of my Dreams♥ A1 foam board
♥ Red polka dot tape
♥ Luggage Tags♥ Scissors
♥ Blu-tack Method:
Step One: Place the London underground print onto as piece of foam board and use decorative tape to stick the print onto the board. The board allows the table plan to sit on an easel or be leaned against a wall for all your guests to see.
Step Two: Choose underground stops in areas of London which will become your table names. Maybe places that mean something to you as a couple, places you have visited together, places you have lived or places you have been on dates.
The table plan cards can be made on luggage tags, you can’t print directly onto the luggage tags but you can buy A4 pages of clear stickers which you can print on to. (These are available from most office supplies shops, they come with 24 clear stickers per sheet)
You can even download the
London Tube Font for free to continue the look of the underground map on your table plan cards from font space.
Step Three: Print out your guest’s names on to the clear stickers and stick onto the luggage tags.
Step Four: Stick a pin in the corresponding tube stop on the map and tie the luggage tag to the pin. Fasten the luggage tag into place with blu-tack. Do the same for all your tables.
How about taking the same idea but making a world map table plan?
Or maybe one for your favourite city?
These maps can also be purchases through Wedding of my Dreams.

DIY Tutorial: Scratchcard Wedding Invitations
May 12, 2012
Hi Rock n Roll Bride readers! My name is Michelle and I am marrying Dan this summer in a garden in Scotland (where he proposed in fact!) and we are doing almost everything ourselves. Partly this is because we are trying to save money (more to spend on food and drinks!) and also because getting married is a great excuse to do all sorts of crafty things you wouldn't normally have budget to do! We made a stop-motion video for the save the date (so. much. fun.) but then wanted to send a physical postcard for the actual invite so people have something to keep. I came up with an idea for a scratch-off card - like a lottery ticket - with the prize being the details of our wedding! Dan got totally behind the idea and did most of the fiddly tasks (including cutting out almost a hundred little plastic hearts). We sent them out last week and our guests love them. I've put together a little tutorial for how to make the cards - they were lots of fun to make and came out looking quite professional-looking!
DIY Tutorial: Pretty Paper Fans
June 2, 2012
It’s pretty difficult to escape paper decorations at the moment, they’re a top trend and rightfully so! They add an instant splash of colour and can transform any blank canvas into an extra special space.
These paper fans look fantastic when grouped en-masse and used as a backdrop for your ceremony or photo-booth and I have them in varying sizes as a feature wall in my home. Here’s how to make your own…

DIY Tutorial: Feather Ombre Skirt
November 4, 2013
Gala and I often joke that we should start a blog series called 'DIY for the ham-fisted' as both of us are just terrible at all things crafty! While I still haven't quite got round to that one, I decided it was high time that I posted some new DIYs for you creative babes to get your mitts on, it's been a while after all!
DIY Tutorial: Cinemagraphs Using Photoshop
April 28, 2012
I've been obsessing over cinemagraphs for ages - in essence they are still images with a small isolated section that moves. When you first see them they're quite confusing but totally entrancing! I've always wondered how they were made and how you can get essentially a still image to have bits of moving video within it but today (eeek) my questions have been answered. When I was sent this Photoshop tutorial by photographer Violet Short I literally gasped. Check out this cute one she made of her dog Marshmallow!
DIY Tutorial: T-Shirt Bunting
May 26, 2012
Bunting is still an incredibly popular decor idea for weddings this year, so I thought a super simple and quick DIY tutorial would probably help a lot of you out! Thank you to blog reader Erin for putting this together for us. You can see more of her DIY ideas over on her own blog Little Red Riding Hood. If you are doing DIY projects for your own wedding and fancy submitting a tutorial idea, just drop me an email with a brief outline and some photos and we can chat! OK, over to Erin...(nice feather boa hat by the way!)
I grew up in country Victoria, but moved to inner bayside Melbourne to be with my partner after returning from some amazing adventures living overseas. In everyday life, I work as a five-star hotel sales executive and event manager. This sounds glamorous, but mostly consists of lists and finding the right length trestle table (usually at 5:30pm on a Friday…) When I'm not riding my vintage bike or sipping third-wave coffee with the hipsters in South Melbourne, I like to garden and read. I also like to bake and craft, but sometimes these things don't work so well for me - I recently worked out that I can excuse these "experiments" by blogging them!
