“How many cocktail napkins do I need to order?” As a Dallas wedding planner, I get asked this questions by a lot of my brides. Generally, 5 napkins per person is the right number. Four for cocktails and one for the cake cutting, assuming that a linen napkin is provided with the meal.
But here’s what I love…how cute are these napkins? They can be used in the future for cocktail parties in the couples new home, so why not order a few extra boxes! They are super fun, and will bring back wonderful memories of the wedding reception.
Imagine having a dinner party at your new home together for your best friends. It’s seven months after your wedding, and you great your guests with a cocktail and hors d’oeuvre with a cocktail napkin from your wedding. I guarantee you will get smiles when you serve your goodies. It’s such a a nice reminder of a gorgeous day!
So go ahead and order 6 or 7 per person, if your budget allows. Then have stacks of these cute cocktail napkins in your home to place under your orange juice in the morning, or your margaritas with your girlfriends on the patio! It will spark lively conversation about the best day of your life!
