I think that would look a little odd if you only gave 1. Honestly, you don’t need to do favors, your dessert table will probably be more than enough for the guests.

The cookies are a cute idea. Fun favors and edible favors seem to be the most popular amoungst guests. I’d give two per guests since it’s a bride/groom set.

i think it will look better if you give them as a set.

I think its cute!  I wouldnt do a half couple as a favor.  I did go to a wedding a few months ago that only had a bride cookie and it was a dress.  If you cant afford to do both, only order one set.

No one is going to notice/complain if you give each guest 1 cookie instead of 2.  We did cookie favors and most of them were left behind.  So definitely don’t spend a lot of money on them!  Favors are nice, not required.

Super cute, I think 1 per guest is fine.

Cute, 1 or 2 per person is fine.

Since we did wine bottles I got cookies for the kids.

I did a wedding cake in our colors.  Maybe look into a different design.

No, I would not order 180 if you are expecting 200 guests.  I would order extra.

I went to a 200 erson wedding where we were told to take 10 favors at the end of the night because no one was taking them!

Favors are NOT necessary.

If you choose to do them, you need at least one per guets (so at least 200). This type of item you chose would look best if paired so if you’re sold on this idea, you should order a set per guest (or two cookies/guest coming to a total of 400).

If you’re tight for money, don’t do any of this.

Everyone loves oreos though so a cute way to include them without all the fuss is to add them to a dessert table and cover them in chocolate or something else without the decoration (which will be cheaper to design, you lose the cost of packaging, etc.). Or just send guests home with one or two sans decoration.

what about a more simple chocolate covered oreo instead of these. Cover in white, drizzled with your wedding colors.

you can do 1 per guest and probably be less $ than these designs.

I would do two per couple so that they can share. 

If you can’t afford it, don’t do it. Nobody will notice the difference either way.

Or you could do a less expensive version (DIY) where you just give them two plain Oreos in a cellophane bag with a little note attached saying “love is sweet” and thanking them.
