I think you can get away with them not matching, since the napkins being provided will be white; however, have you checked the rental prices of the napkins; they may be more affodable than you think. Don’t forget to ask if they have any specials where you can also get a discount. Our napkins won’t match because we are using the cloths provided by our venue. I decided to make ours because I couldn’t find anything reasonalby priced that I wanted. If you want to make your own napkins, it would be a lot less expensive and they aren’t that hard to make. Here is a link to mine, if you want to see what I did. I made dinner napkins and cocktail and cake napkins.

@Zettie4: It depends on if you are going to do single thickness or double thickness and also the width of your fabric. If you use 60″ wide fabric single thickness, you should be able to get 15 napkins per yard; 7 if you are doing double thickness. This estimate if for the dinner napkins; size 11 1/2″ X 11 1/2″. The ladies/guys at the fabric counter at Joanns have a fabric calculator that they can use to give you the amount of yardage you would need to make 250 napkins with the fabric you choose. You would just need to give them the size of your napkins and the width of the fabric. If you think you might do this, remember to add in your hem/seam allowance; usually 1/2″ for a hem because you will turn it twice at a 1/4″ and for a seam allowance, if you are doing double sided napkins, you would need to factor in approx 5/8″ for the seam.
