Whimsical Napkins Perfect Even for Formal Weddings

9 Aug

Wedding CoupleThe family wedding I attended recently, in honor of Carly and Jason Bradford, was one of the outstanding weddings you can imagine. From the flowers to the table settings to the absolutely gorgeous bride and groom, the entire night was magical.  And I had the pleasure and privilege of helping with the printed napkins for the rehearsal dinner and the reception.

The rehearsal dinner was at Manny’s Deli in Chicago, a family tradition for over 70 years.  It’s not unexpected to run into Chicago politicians, mayors, visiting presidents and celebrities there, plus the who’s who in the city.  A true highlight for visitors to Chicago, it’s located in the south loop and is a “must see”.

Manny's DelicatessenThe rich history surrounding Manny’s is shown in their dining room with walls decorated with news clippings, reviews, snapshots, and memorabilia demonstrates how deeply Chicagoans treasure this historic restaurant.  This is an institution in Chicago serving up daily doses of stacked corned beef, potato pancakes, brisket, soups and all the traditional deli extras that you would expect.

As a selection for a wedding rehearsal dinner, there were napkins featuring fun phrases that were a bit unexpected but uniquely fun and indeed perfect for this union. The fun napkins were used for the appetizers, drinks and desserts.  Napkins featuring expressions like “Nosh Drink and Be Married” and “One Day Away” make a fun accent to a wedding celebration!

Wedding CeremonyThe table settings enhanced the wedding reception and was a masterpiece of style and sophistication.  Both the monogram and duogram with wedding date were selected to be used on many of the printed wedding essentials featuring the artwork used on the wedding invitation, itinerary, wedding program, place cards and more.  This monogram was created in a romatic typestyle featuring the intertwining of the bride and groom’s initials representing their love and union.

Cutting the Wedding CakeHalf the napkins and guest towels provided featured a formal traditional approach, featuring the monogram and duogram.  The other half used at the wedding bar and appetizer stations, were a bit more on the fun side and unexpected, but lovely!  They added a dose of whimsy to printed napkin at this formal affair.  These napkins were also ideal for the couple’s bar during the reception and made for a relaxed yet upbeat and still perfectly elegant presentation.

Have fun planning and enjoy all the beautiful events in your life.
