Hi! I’m trying to decide if I should buy nice paper napkins or go with linen. I am already planning to use nice disposable plates, glasses, and silverware. I am also planning on doing a buffet style dinner, with my plates at the buffet line and cups at the bar. What I am mostly struggling with is give and take for presentation and money. I would like to save some money but I don’t want to give up the look of the tables, as my tables will already be pretty bare without plates on the settings. Any ideas, comments?

I'm not a fan of disposables at weddings, but since you're already doing them for everything else, I'd prob just go paper napkins. I think it'd look off to have linen and then disposable everything else.
Generally, I would say cloth napkins since I don't like paper ones. However, since you are using disposables for everything else I think cloth napkins will look out of place. I'd also worry about them mistakenly ending up in the garbage since everything else will be trashed after dinner.
Hi Catherine! Welcome to the WeddingWire Community! I think paper napkins would definitely be okay since the dinnerware is also disposable. You can actually find high-quality paper napkins from Amazon, which would be a great alternative! Do what works best for you. Good luck!
I agree with the majority, I would go paper route so you keep everything the same style.
As a suggestion - not sure if you are doing favors, but maybe placing a favor in front of each person would work as a table setting for you, since plates and everything else will be on your buffet station. Check out pinterest, they have cute ideas.
It depends on if the napkins are on the table or at the buffet. If they are at the buffet, go for the paper napkins. If they are on the table, definitely do the linens. A beautiful plastic plate will look fantastic with a linen napkin. Search online. I'm sure you can get some pretty cheap.
