Tips and Tricks for Wedding Napkins

Wedding Napkins

A formal dining experience usually follows the wedding ceremony. Creating the elegant dining setting for the ultimate after-party cannot be accomplished without a formal cloth napkin. The secrets to conveying the theme and style are in the presentation. Any napkin could be folded into a square and placed beside the chinaware, but your wedding day calls for something a little more impressive. If you came for the inspiration and tips, keep reading what we are sharing about the wedding napkins.

The Color of Your Wedding Napkins

Your wedding colors should not be a guessing game. Your guests should enter the reception area to fully-designed and staged table settings in your combination of complimenting wedding colors. The charger plates, wedding napkins and napkin rings are part of the design.

Setting the Table

Chinaware and linens are a significant part of the design. You might not consider your dishes and linens to be décor, but the charger plates frame the wedding napkins, and the decorative rings create the finishing touch for an impressive look. Standard place settings consist of charger plates, wedding napkins, dinner forks, salad forks, soup spoons, dinner knives, water goblets, wine glasses and champagne flutes. While the etiquette for the placement on the table is pretty standard, you can create a dramatic effect with the design and the way you coordinate the pieces.

Folding Wedding Napkins

Wedding napkins are usually folded into three popular folds, the triangle fold, goblet fold and pocket fold. You can insert a napkin into a goblet and spread it in the shape of a fan. You can add dimension with an elegant triangle fold that pops off the plate. You can tuck a menu or insert a sprig of lavender or an orchid into a triangle fold. Wedding napkins have an important function beyond the design; therefore, you should consider the fabric. The design is all in the presentation.
