Hi, loves! You guys are filling up our Ask Emmaline inbox and we’re loooving it! Keep the questions coming! The latest question comes to us from Anna who wants to know about wedding napkins with names. Or is it supposed to be wedding napkins with names and dates? Do you need napkins for weddings at all?! So many questions!
“Hi Emmaline! I’m planning my June wedding and I’m curious where to buy wedding napkins with names on them. We want to include them at the bar and maybe the tables themselves but I have no idea where napkins should be placed. Also, should I get wedding napkins with names? Or wedding napkins with name and date? Does it really matter? Thanks so much for all of your help.”
Wedding Napkins with Names
Hi Anna, thanks for writing! Wedding napkins are a must; wedding napkins with names on them are a plus! I think if you’re truly looking to personalize your wedding space and maximize the details available, you may as well go one step above and get wedding napkins with names on them.
Another option that works great? Monograms!
And to quickly answer the question of where do you put or place wedding napkins, the bar is the number-one spot, along with a dessert table and the cake table. Your place settings will likely already have linen napkins, so no need to add wedding napkins there, too.
Wedding Napkins with Names on Them
Plain white napkins, or even colorful napkins but with no names or style to them, can look a little last-minute. Let’s up the game a bit, incorporate your wedding color palette, maybe a funny one-liner, and let’s make your wedding napkins look as awesome as possible. That’s what I would do!
You pose an excellent question here though:
Wedding napkins with names?
Wedding napkins with name and date?
Personally, I like to go all-in and would vote for wedding napkins with name and date on them. However, due to the current restrictions and the possibility of a postponed wedding (yikes, I know, but it’s worth noting), some couples are opting to take their wedding date out of ANY personalization, and that makes total sense.
If your wedding did get postponed or the date was changed, even by a week, a few weeks, or months, you may not want to use said wedding napkins with name and date on them. And no one wants to waste money and product, and 500 napkins would be a lot of napkins to use at home for a while. ;)
So, here’s the deal: if you are nervous about a possible postponement of your wedding, buy wedding napkins with names on them.
If you’re not worried and you already found a style you adore, get wedding napkins with name and date.
Sound good? Great!
Next, we’ll show you both options so you can choose whichever napkins will suit your event best.
Wedding Napkins Personalized
If you’re buying wedding napkins with names, don’t just trust the quality anywhere; you’ll want to order wedding napkins personalized with your names and date, just names, a fun logo, a motif to tie into your theme, a particular color, etc. from a place that specializes in it. Case in point: ForYourParty! There are many customizable aspects when it comes to wedding napkins, so you’ll be grateful they’re at the helm, ready to design whatever dreams make up YOUR wedding napkins. :)
They do it all and they have the reviews and best-sellers to prove it. So, let’s take a look at the best-selling napkin designs featuring wedding napkins with names, motifs, monograms, wedding napkins with name and date, funny one-liners, and more.
Note: You’ll most likely want to order the cocktail napkin size for the bar, dessert table, etc. If you’re planning a bridal luncheon and need napkins, go with the luncheon size. For dinners that are low-key, casual, or perhaps an outdoor wedding (e.g. I Do BBQ), choose dinner-sized wedding napkins with names on them. All napkins are able to be customized with your own details, colors, etc., so if you see a style you like but want something different, it’s doable! You can even design your own napkins here.
