So I wanted to make my own napkins for the wedding - buy fabric, hem the edges and then embroider our initials in the corner. However there was a consensus among those I talked to that it would be too much work and that it would probably cost the same amount as renting them (if not more). But then my dad came up with the idea (possibly half joking at the beginning) to have bandannas for napkins! I loved the idea and looked into it and came across this image on 'Country Living':
I love how they wrapped the cutlery in the bandanna and I have decided to stick a herb in the rope instead of a flower as I think it will smell nice and it makes more sense for a herb to be at the table.
So I think I am going to order through a wholesale company after we solidify our dress colours.
They even have Two Toned bandannas in brown and cream so I could rotate the colour every other place setting:
