We are giving mercury glass Christmas ornaments as favors to our christian guests and mercury glass votive holders to our non-christian guests. My question is should it be one per person or one per couple? Our entire wedding except for 3 people are couples so I am not sure what would make more sense since I don’t think a couple would even want to have two ornaments, thoughts?

Edibles are one per person, non-edibles are one per couple.
I have to comment on your wording. There are countless non-Christians who celebrate Christmas and have every right to do so (it is a federal holiday after all) so it is not fair to exclude them for that reason. What I would be much more concerned with is if you have Jewish guests for example, since they don’t generally celebrate Christmas. Either have the favors all the same or skip them, since no one will miss them.

I agree that one per couple is good, just make sure they know so people aren’t taking too many and other people miss out.
I love that you’re doing something different for non christian guests! So far I’ve been to 2 weddings where we’ve gotten an ornament… and I’m jewish!

I’ve always seen the non-foodstuff favors be per couple. Usually attached to the seating card with the couple’s name and the table number. The favors sound very nice, and I’m guessing you know your friends enough to know how they will respond to the religious split in favor distribution.

Damn didn’t read your question before I voted. I think one per couple is cool.
