The number our venue gave me was to have 200 for our 150 guests.

My venue suggested ordering 50 to 75% of the amount of guests. I ordered 75 for my 125 guests. They said every wedding that had the personalized napkins always had a TON left over. That would be so bad if you want to use them in your home after you are married….

I actually ordered about 400 for my 130 guests. I figure that people will have on average 2 drinks during our cocktail hour (some people might have 3 or 4, while others might have just one, so I am just averaging it out). And then, I’ll ask that they move the rest of the napkins into our reception and use those until they run out.

My guess is that almost all of your guests will have at least one drink, and some will definitely have at least two, so I don’t think I’d order fewer napkins than the number of guests that I have.
