Ladies, this may be a dumb question but I’m not sure on the numbers. When buying favors for your guest do you purchase per guest or per couple/single guest? Im using mini wine bottles as my favors & we’re looking at 235 if we purchase one for each guest. Ouch!! I’d appreciate any advice from you guys!!
Thanks fellow Bees!

For something like that I think I would go per couple/single guest. Also for something like cds, where a couple really doesn’t each need one. We are doing little boxes of locally made chocolates, and probably candles, and so will go with one per guest.

Mini wine bottles? Are they filled with wine or a non-alcoholic substitue? I ask because I have both underage people (15-20) and recovered alcoholoics atteneding my wedding and I know that they wouldn’t be needing a favor like that.
Maybe you could just buy some (enough for per couple or a few less), and put them in a basket with a cute not on them that says something like:
"For the adult guests, thank you so much for shaing in our day Cheers!"
and next to it put a basket of home made cookies neatly wraped in celophane bags tied with ribbon for the underage folk with and equally cute note on it.
Use the wine bottles to escort couples to their table by tying the escort card to it and then the underage ones you could do small bottles of soda or sparkeling cider?
Personally, if I arrived at a wedding and the favors went every other on the table, or per couple I might be a bit put off. You know everyone likes to get their favor so if you aren’t going to give everyone a favor I woulndn’t leave them at the place setting – but use them for something or put them off somewhere to be found so it’s not so obvious that there arn’t one per person.

I went to two weddings with wine as favors – one had mini bottles (1 or 2 glasses per bottle) and everyone had a bottle at their seat, alternating white and red. The other wedding had full bottles, but they were set up on at table at the door, so as the guests left they grabbed a bottle per couple if they liked.
