Napkin Folds

I was recently at a tasting at the beautiful Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs. We were discussing table settings and napkin fold. The Broadmoor staff had folded several different folds for us to view and choose from. The bride questioned if there were more and the catering manager and I both stated there were several more! She wasn't quite sure about any of the folds...

Needless to say, she did not make a decision that day about what kind of fold she wanted. So I put together an email for her, so show different kinds of folds. Why not share it here as well?

Before you settle on a specific fold, make sure your catering company or staff is able to do the specific fold. Furthermore, make sure they are willing to follow through with your special request. Some places and companies may not be able to due to staffing and time constraints. If your caterer is not able to comply with your request, you can always see if your wedding coordinator is able to fold them for you. If you want something more than a traditional fold, ask first. Then start to look for a fold you like. If you do it reverse, you might end up disappointed.

Below are several different kinds of folds...what are you doing for your wedding?

The Lily Goblet
The Rosebud

The Crown

The Pyramid

The Diamond

The Rose

The Double Fan

The Ship
Bishop's Hat

Double Roll

PS. She ended up choosing The Diamond Fold! :)

SCE Real Wedding

On June 20th, Kelly and Matt were married at University Park Methodist Church followed by a reception at the Comedy Works Curtis Ballroom. The day was a little rainy and we were unsure how rainy it would get! It did hold off quite a bit and the day turned out wonderfully!

The ceremony was beautiful and very personal (they wrote their whole ceremony). After the ceremony was over, they held a receiving line to lead guests out of the church. Each guest was given a cone full of petals to throw at the bride and groom.

The bride and groom choose to have a bagpiper lead them into their reception (they decided 4 days beforehand they wanted this - I was able to find an awesome bagpiper!). It was awesome and incorporated their hertiage that guests may not have known about. It was a great way to kick off the evening. After they were introduced, the immediately went into their first dance that was accompanied by a slideshow. Once we got through dinner and the other formalities, they had a great band to play them into the evening. The dance floor was packed for the entire night!! I am sure they had a blast!!

Kelly and Matt ~ It was such a pleasure to work with you both! I hope your wedding day was everything you wanted it to be! I wish you many years of happiness together! Wish you the best!!!

Here is what Kelly and Matt had to say about Something Classic Events:

"We are so happy we hired Danielle to be our day-of-coordinator! There is no way our wedding would have run nearly as smoothly without her. We had a couple of vendors that almost failed us (limo tried to cancel the night before and cake delivery got lost) but Danielle came to the rescue. She was also there to answer all of my questions throughout the entire planning process and was there to help us at the rehearsal. She was calm and attentive and there to support us throughout the entire (nearly 12 hour!) wedding day! She is worth every penny and more!! Thank you so much Danielle for everything!!!! With Love, Kelly and Matt"

Being in the business I am in, I have the pleasure of meeting great people througout the wedding industry on a regular basis. Elegant Images is at the top of my list for photographers in Colorado. Ross and Kammi are incredibly talented wedding and portrait photographers. I have enjoyed working with them several times and each time it gets better and better. Not only are they great photographers, they are great people as well. I truly enjoy being in their company and I am sure every bride that has worked with them feels the same.
