Step 1: Choose your trivia questions and their corresponding answers. To keep it interesting, you’ll want at least 4-5 questions. If your wedding guest list is quite large, you can create up to 10 trivia questions. Your wedding trivia questions can include details about your first date or the proposal, a special detail about why you chose your upcoming honeymoon location or even your pets. This is your opportunity to tell your love story, through trivia, so embrace it!

Step 2: Using the FYP Customizer, design your wedding trivia cocktail napkins. Choose a consistent header and font, then design each trivia question napkin separately, saving them in your FYP designs. You can put the answer to each question in small printing at the bottom of the napkin, or, to promote more conversation among your guests, print answers to other questions on each napkin. For example,  if your maid of honor gets the question #1 wedding trivia cocktail napkins served to her with her cocktail, she will also have the answer to question #3, printed in a small font at the bottom corner of her cocktail napkin. She can seek out the wedding guests that have the answer to question #1 (although, surely she knows the answers as your maid of honor!!) or the guests with question #3 on their wedding trivia cocktail napkins to compare questions and answers.

Step 3: Color code your questions. This is a simple way to make is easier for your guests to see who has which trivia question. You can choose to have each trivia question be printed on different colors napkins, creating a beautiful colorway, or just vary the foil stamping colors on all one color napkins, whichever you prefer. Having a variety of cocktail napkin colors is a fun way to highlight your wedding color scheme.
