    Another vote for simple folds (and simplicity wherever possible moving forward). Also, now I cannot unsee that goat.

    These are the kinds of things that have brides losing their minds. My mother started trying to talk about folding napkins the weekend before the wedding and I was like “Do NOT even think about it.”

    Out of the 3, def the bow. I rather have a nice neat folded  napkin. If you want to decorate it, just tie them with some pretty twine or whatever ribbon you want. 

    The last one with the “erect” napkin is just wrong.

    I did the bling napkin rings so I am a bit biased…but im not inlove with the bow folding style.  The bling added nice sparkle

    Hahaha I agree with PP the one in the glass looks like open leg origami And the ” candle stick” is quite phallic.    I would definitely go with some thing a little more simple. Or do the bow if your looking for something more “fancy”

    You could still use the sparkly napkin ring with a more modern look

    Out of those three, I’d have to go with the simple bow. I didn’t care for the other two at all. I’ve been making these “dinner jacket” napkins. They’re a bit of a pain in the ass at first but once you get the hang of it, you zip right through them.

    I opened this thinking “are there really that many ways to fold a napkin?” and evidently yes, there are two too many ways.  You made the right choice.

    I gotta know what’s going on with the third one, is that actually a napkin wrapped around a candle?  What are you supposed to do with the candle after you unwrap it?  And what’s sticking the candle to the plate?  Are you getting wax on your plate?  I’m so emotionally invested in that napkin for no reason…

    Is the candlestick part of your wedding favor?  It seems a bit odd to wrap the candle in the napkin, especially since guests won’t be using it for dinner.  I like option 1 with the bow the best, but agree it is a bit 90s.  I would kindly suggest to fold the napkins into a fan and then use a smaller bling-y napkin holder, if you are going more dramatic.

    NONE OF THESE!! They are all horrible, no offence. Go with a simple square on the plate.

    nellytfernando :  I agree with PPs…I am not a fan of any of them but I think the one I dislike least is the bow.
