As a Dallas wedding planner, I get asked this question a lot by my brides. “How many cocktail napkins do I need to order?” Generally, 5 napkins per person is the right number. Four for cocktails and one for the cake cutting, assuming that a linen napkin is provided with the meal.
But here’s what I love…how cute are these napkins? They can be used in the future for cocktail parties in the couples new home, so why not order a few extra boxes! They are super fun, and will bring back wonderful memories of the wedding reception.
So go ahead and order 6 or 7 per person, if your budget allows. Then have stacks of these cute cocktail napkins in your home to place under your orange juice in the morning, or your margaritas with your girlfriends on the patio! It will spark lively conversation about the best day of your life!
