Hi Bees! I’m going to order some custom napkins and I have no idea how many to buy! We will be having a cocktail hour following the ceremony (4:30-5:30pm) and directly after is our reception beginning at 6pm sharp. Then we will cut the cake at 8pm. We are going to be serving about 50 people so how many napkins should I get for 50 people for 4 or 5 hours of hosting?

Are you going to be having linen napkins with dinner? We had 115 guests and a 1 hour ceremony, 3.5 hour reception and ordered I think 500 napkins? We definitely went overboard… We only used the napkins for the cupcakes and at the bar, we had linen napkins at dinner and small plates for cocktail hour, but I think we had probably 300 napkins left over, lol. So for you, if your’e using the napkins instead of cocktail plates as well as with the cake (and bar?), I’d recommend maybe 300 at the most? I’d imagine people might use 2-3 at cocktail hour, 1 with cake and grab one with a beer or liquor drink.

Yes we will have linen napkins on the table during dinner.
