"Instead of renting scratchy napkins, we bought mismatched dishtowels to use at each place setting. Since they are all in the same color palette, the effect is visually interesting without being distracting. I was skeptical," says Genevieve, "but the bride won me over. Plus, she got to start married life with a lifetime supply of dishtowels!"
TIP: It's more economical (and less wasteful!) to buy items you will be able to use long after the wedding.
