• <h4 class="dechead">On One Hand: Three to Four Per Guest, Minimum

    When people go through a buffet line, they tend to grab a stack of napkins. You should make sure that your guests have plenty of napkins when they need one. Additionally, some will want to take one home as a memento of your special day.

    On the Other: One to Two Per Guest

    Guests should be handed their napkins while going through a buffet line and should be limited to one to two per person. There is no reason why excess napkins should be purchased to simply be wasted and thrown in the trash. One to two per person is plenty.

    Bottom Line

    Regardless, your wedding needs napkins. Plain napkins could be purchased and not unwrapped as back-up as needed, if cost is an issue. Consider the guests coming to the wedding and plan according to your expected food. The messier the food, the more napkins needed.


    The Knot

  • Get married by a Justice of the Peace. It is what we are going to do. I can't think of anyone I'd want to invite to my wedding and ruin it.
