We are holding our reception at our local hall. We would need to spend a fortune to do it up to make it look fantastic so we have decided to leave it as it and dress up the tables.
We are having linen tablecloths with vase centerpieces.
My dilemna – to hire linen napkins its going to cost $120 for 80. That really annoys me having to spend that much on damn napkins!
Would paper napkins in our wedding colours with a cute stamp of be tacky or would they be fine instead of the linen napkin?
EDIT: It is a casual wedding

I do think it depends on your venue and how upscale your overall wedding is going to be. But I don’t have a problem with paper napkins at weddings. I think its perfectly acceptable..JMO

I think you will be the only one in attendance who gives even a second thought to the napkins… so my vote is to go with paper and save as much $$ as you can!

This is only my opinion, but I don’t think guests will be leaving your wedding talking about the napkins… They will be talking about how beautiful you looked, how great of a couple you are, and how much fun they had dancing, not about napkins. I think if you want paper napkins go for it.

It’s not for me, but I think if you are comfortable with it then go nuts.

not every wedding needs to be ‘tv perfect’. what’s perfect for you may not be to the taste of david tutera.
i’ve never been to a wedding that had linens… i have actually only ever seen the paper napkins and i have saved a napkin from each one as a keepsake.

I don’t think anyone will even think twice about the fact that it’s paper and not linen!

I wouldn’t mind. I do tend to think that linen napkins are for sit-down dinners, and paper is for a cocktail reception, but you know what? It’s your wedding. They save you money that you can spend on something more important, and you’re right, they ARE cute. : )

Do the paper no stamp, no one is going to care about the stamp. Save yourself some money and just get a colored/or plain napkin.

A stamp would really look cute! Save the money and go for the paper napkins. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever been to a wedding that actually used linen napkins!
