Wondering where to buy printed napkins / personalized napkins for weddings? You’ll find ’em here! It’s our latest Ask Emmaline question and we received this one from bride-to-be, Alexandra. After reading it, we realized we hadn’t really covered the topic of printed napkins before… at least, not this in-depth! She writes,
“Hi Emmaline! I’m wondering how to decorate my wedding bar. I have signage (for our signature cocktail) and swizzle sticks, but was thinking of adding printed napkins, too. Do you know where to buy personalized napkins? What size do I buy for the bar? How many personalized napkins do I need? We are having approximately 200 guests. Thanks!”
Hi, Alexandra! Fantastic question — and good idea decorating your wedding bar. It’s one area many couples overlook, yet one of the easiest to decorate. I love the signage idea for a signature cocktail, and hey, swizzle sticks are always a good idea! You asked about printed napkins: I think they’re a great idea. Guests can take one with each beverage and it makes a really nice touch. We did some digging on the topic of printed napkins, and here’s what we found to answer your questions.
What size printed napkins should you buy?
The best size of napkins for your bar is a cocktail napkin. Cocktail napkins are square and measure approximately 4.75″ – 5″ in size.
How many napkins do you need to buy?
With 200 guests, estimate one napkin per person and add an additional twenty-five printed napkins — so you’ll need 225 printed napkins. It’s true that not every guest will drink, and not every guest will take a napkin; however, you’ll have plenty for guests who do take one (and if you have any left over, printed napkins are at least functional to use at home). For every wedding, I always estimate one cocktail napkin per person (plus twenty-five extra). It seems to be the perfect amount.
Where to buy personalized napkins?
And now, where to buy personalized napkins. This one’s easy, as we’ve always had great luck with custom printed napkins from For Your Party. They have really great prices, plenty of designs, tons of colors, and a customization tool which makes it super easy to create your own custom napkins.
These Flourish Cheers style printed napkins are one of my favorites, as I like the font and the gold foil. If you click on colors, you can instantly see a visual of how your napkins will look. Here’s a couple color options we tried to show you:
And here are a few designs we love from the shop.
