    depends on what the favor is!  at 2 wedding we went to last year, one was a bottle of maple syrup and that was per guest, the other was a colored wine glass and this was also per guest.

    we did pasta servers and this was per couple of course.

    How about only giving one coaster to the couples who are married/live together/are in serious longterm relationships? For the couples who don’t live together I imagine it might become awkward about who takes the favour home! lol The other guests each get their own coaster.

    I don’t know if etiquette actually allows it but it seems practical to me!

    I don’t know — we’re married and if we got coasters, I’d probably want two. One for each of us to use, you know? If we only had one and it didn’t have a match, I probably wouldn’t use it. I wouldn’t throw it away, but I also probably wouldn’t use it on its own. Unless I maybe brought it to work for my desk or something?

    If it’s something that can be shared, like a mini bottle of wine, or a little packet of truffles/other candy, I’d say you can get away with one per couple.  But seeing as how you’re doing coasters, and typically each person has their own drink (so only one person can use it at a time), I’d say one per person!

    Ummm… none. It’s rather tacky, I know, but after feeding everyone (largest chunk of our budget) all we could afford were the things most people throw away the next day (plastic trinkets or cheap desserts/candies). We thought we’d save everyone the annoyance of feeling obligated to take the cheap party favor — haha hope that doesn’t make us uber-cheap 😉

    I would say one each for almost any favor, unless it’s something household or meant to be shared.  Since a coaster can only be used by one person I’d say one for each guest.

    how many coasters is being given? 

    think of it this way… what the hell am I/WE going to do with ONE random coaster?

    The photo coasters are lovely — they’re cute mementos that serve a purpose. I think 2/couple is perfect. Haha if I’d read this idea a few weeks who knows, maybe my guests would’ve had something to take home! 😉 Great idea!
