This weekend we actually got quite a few things (that I have been trying to accomplish for weeks) accomplished! Go us.
Besides figuring out how many save-the-dates we need to order, we also finally met with our DJ. We should be putting down the deposit in the next day or so. (So watch for a post on that!)
Getting wedding details squared away gets me excited all over again for our wedding. Not that I ever wasn’t excited, but you sort of get in a slump when you’re not actively planning.
Anywho, it has got me thinking about reception décor (as things are oft to do in my brain…).
At our venue, the napkins are pretty consistently styled like this:
There’s nothing wrong with that if it’s what you like, but for me, it just reminds me of when I would help set the table and would tuck the paper napkins/paper towels in the glasses for a bit of “flair.” I’m usually drawn toward sleeker looks, and these three options have really caught my eye:
Ok, the bows are a little cutesy, but still really cute! Maybe better for a bridal shower?
I love the draped look, and I think I might actually ask them to do this. White table cloths, seafoam napkins, some DIY menus on top…what do you think?
I love the look of a vintage doily. Mmm.
I actually saw on a blog once where a bride had printed her menus and then put them on doilies…so maybe I can have the best of both worlds.
What do you think? (C'mon, obsess over the details with me!)
