Place Settings

11:56 AM, by Unknown

Lets talk about place settings. What is each seat going to look like? The way in which you fold your napkins can make a huge difference in how the room looks.

A few things to consider when choosing your place setting:

1. Formality: How formal do you want your wedding to be? Typically the more elaborate the place setting the more formal your reception will feel.  Charger plates, place cards, and printed menus are a great way to bring a unique touch to your place setting.

2. Dinner: What are you serving?
Buffet- plate not on the table (typically)
Family style- plate on the table
Plated dinner: charger plate, no plate on the table
French service: charger plate and plate on the table

3. Napkin Fold: How do you want your napkins to look?
Pocket: great for menu cards or for utensils if you have a basic place setting
Hanging off the charger: simple but perfect for a ribbon or tied place card
In between dinner & side plate: one of my favorite folds and so sophisticated if you change the colour of the napkin to stand out from the dishware.
Accordion fold: also known as the napkin fan. I’m personally not a fan (pun intended) but it can work if your place settings need a bit of texture.
