The thing that separates a good wedding from a great wedding is attention to detail. Every part of your wedding, from the color scheme down to the napkins, must have some thought put into it. Of course, this is easier said than done. When it comes time to figure out what to do with those napkins, you may be at a complete loss. That’s why we’ve compiled a few of our favorite napkin folds that will look great on your wedding reception tables.
Simple yet unique, this design ties your napkins into an elegant knot on top of the salad plates. This technique is best when used with soft, washed-linen napkins that are commonly found in more rustic weddings.
If you’re having a dinner buffet, then you likely won’t have your plates set out in front of your guests. However, you don’t want the tables to appear empty. To compensate, you can drape your napkins across the table so that they fall down off the sides.
Your napkins aren’t just for looks or for wiping food off of someone’s chin. They can also be a handy place holder for menus or flatware by folding the napkin to create a small pocket in the front.
For traditional weddings, there’s nothing wrong with the timeless napkin ring. Match it to your plates or flatware so that it complements your wedding decorations well.
Loosely rolled napkins
For something casual and simple, you can always loosely roll your napkins and place them on top of each plate. You can tie them with a ribbon to add a flash of color, or you can keep them plain for a more minimalist look.
