{Partnered Post} Personalized Wedding Napkins!

You know, there were so many little things that I wanted to add into my wedding that I simply never got around to. Time. Money. Time. Did I mention time? One of those things was personalized wedding napkins like these. I totally envisioned my little crab stuffed cucumber wheels being passed about with napkins with our names or “Eat, Drink and Be Married” on them.

Yes, I know. This might be cliché in our little wedding blog world we live in around here, but to guests? It’s all pretty unique and fun. To me? Totally cute.

Back when I was a bride, I had read on some blog somewhere about Gocco-ing some napkins and when I looked into that process, I was floored by the cost of the Gocco machine! That was definitely one of those instances where the DIY was way more costly than the item itself.

I knew stamping was an option, but it had the potential to bleed ink on the cheap paper napkins and I really didn’t want to deal with the mess, to be honest.

I should have just ordered them because, for goodness sake, they aren’t that expensive at all!

In fact, the folks over at American Bridal.com have a ton of super-cute options but a very affordable rate! With over 28 napkin colors, 9 ink colors and 40 designs, you can create a wedding napkin that matches the style and colors of your wedding perfectly. I would have done the eco-friendly kraft colored cocktail napkin with the “Eat, Drink & Be Married” logo and our names and wedding date in chocolate brown. Done. And 100 of them are only $21.95. WHA? Seriously. I probably spent that much in time alone researching how to DIY them on-line. CLASSIC bride error. Some things are just easier to buy, y’know?

So what do you think about personalized napkins? For a smidge over $20 (before shipping, natch), you can order them from AmericanBridal.com and be done. And here’s a cost savings idea if you’re thinking “But wait! I have more than 100 people coming and they will certainly have more than one drink!” Order the 100 napkins and mix them in with an alternating color. That way when they are presented on the bar, or cocktail tray, or even the hand towels in the ladie’s loo, it will still look cool and you’ll save a little dough!

See, I’m always thinkin’…Smile

I'd rather spend the extra money on the drinks themselves :). But then it's well-established that I'm a cranky editor who is completely devoid of a conventional aesthetic sense and, possibly, manners.

My ex-SIL had personalized wedding napkins and coasters for the cocktail hour. They had a martini luge ice sculpture, so I thought the beverage napkins and coasters were a cute, nice touch for her country club wedding. The guests (who were primarily older people and not mired down in wedding planning) all thought they were very sweet. She had very simple flowers and no favors, so I assume that the martini luge and personalized napkins were really just a shuffling of priorities (as one does in wedding planning).

I'm glad I didn't get them for our wedding. I had considered getting little cable cars with our wedding date, just for fun. They would have been a total loss if I had, though, seeing as how both our location and wedding date changed.

Personalized napkins are a great little touch that is very inexpensive and people always comment on them.

Personalized beverage napkins are intricate and filled with detail. Beverage napkins are perfect for any celebration.

These are adorable, such a nice touch for a wedding! I mean they wouldn't exactly be my main priority but I can see why they'd be worth the investment!
