        I have made signs and names like you mention in different fonts. The problem that I can see with your request is using pine that is no less than an inch thick. £5 a letter for pine I don't think is unreasonable to be honest.

        To keep cost down would you not consider MDF. I have made names out of MDF and they give a nice smooth finish.

          They would be quite easy to do. The only thing I can see, is that, even at one inch thick, if the table they were on got a knock (very likely at a wedding), they would easily fall over.
          It may be better to think about having them provided with a small stand for them to sit upright on. If you did that you could also get away with the wood being a little bit thinner, which would make it easier to cut the shapes.
