How many guests? That sounds pricey for glasses, and cheeky for napkins. Look at all the pretty pics of napkins folded really simply. If you have someone to do this for you, go for it. Takes ten minutes!

I’m having glass wine glasses, and plastic for everything else. But I’m widely known to have no sense 🙂 and our wedding is in our garden.

My gosh! I’ll fold them for you for less than that! I can’t believe how caterers are trying to nickel and dime their clients.

ps I am joking  about the fee – if you are near me I would do them for free

I’ve bought cloth napkins from the dollar store and Target for $1. Can you buy one (or use another type of cloth [wash cloth, dish towel, t-shirt lol) to practice for a bit until you get the hang of it? It’s super easy and not worth $1.50 per place setting…

Maybe a friend of someone in your family could show you how, if they know.
