Ordering Cocktail Napkins for your Wedding

Posted on August 26,2009 by Jennifer Carroll

Cocktail napkins are a great way to combine style and function on your wedding day. They are a blank palette waiting to share something special with your guests and help them avoid sticky fingers! I saw the beautiful napkins above on Elizabeth Anne Designs' blog.

Couples are always asking me how many they should order so I thought I'd share my equation with you too! It's really simple. First, determine how many hours you'll have the bars open during your reception. For example, if your reception will be five hours long, then the bars will likely be open for 3 1/2 hours (allowing 1 1/2 hours for dinner-ask your banquet manager how long they estimate dinner service for all courses if you're not sure). Remember to include the cocktail hour! Then multiply the number of hours by 1.5. This is the average number of drinks that a guest will have per hour. Finally multiply that number by the number of guests your expecting. Here's what this looks like:


Stylish Wedding Seating Chart!

While I love creating beautiful escort cards for weddings {there are so many creative possibilities!}, sometimes it makes more sense to have an escort card sign instead. I recently created this sign for Susan & Thad, a wonderful couple who got married at the Clifton Inn. There color palette of spring green, black & white was so crisp & fresh – ideal for a summer wedding!

As many of you know – I love all things vintage! Whether it's authentic vintage or vintage inspired – I'm a fan! So, you know I was thrilled when Albemarle Vintage Limousine opened there doors here in C-ville a couple of year's ago… While a modern limousine is a great way to move your entire wedding party – I can't think of anything as fabulous as one of these cars to drive you and your sweetie off into the sunset, can you?
