could you some how use the wine stoppers as escort cards? like, attach something to it that says “joe and sally smith ~ Table 4” or “The Jones Family ~ Table 6” etc..?

I am only giving one favor per couple or family or one favor per person if they don’t have a guest/partner with them.  Sometimes people don’t even take the favors (regardless of what they are) so it would be a real shame to “waste” twice as many!  My friend gave our wine stoppers at her wedding and attached their escort cards to the favor (so my fiance and I took ONE wine stopper home).

Either is fine.  If you set them at the table, I think it should be  1 per person.  But if you have them with escort cards, then 1 per couple is fine.  I’m not sure what to do if you have them set out on a table for people to grab, I’d be afraid of running out.

I’d also prepare 1 for each person.

My Fiance and I have been to weddings where we weren’t sure if we should each take 1 favor or if 1 was for the both of us. We would just ask the others at the table if they all got one and figured it out from there. I also agree with PP that some people don’t even remember to take them. I would save the money and get 1 per couple.

Its so much easier if its one favor per person

Unless you have a way to specify who gets what, I think some couples will think/expect that they each get a favor, and I’m afraid you’ll end up with other guests who don’t get one because they’ve run out.

The only way I think you can get away with one per couple is if you attach the escort cards to them and have both people in the couple on the escort card. You say the label won’t have room for their names/table, but can’t you attach an additional card to them as the escort card?

Either way, but I would be concerned with how you would indicate that the stopper is for a couple and not an individual if you’re not using them as placecards. I think that one per couple is acceptable, but I think people assume one per person unless told otherwise.

I’d do one per person.  Couples don’t always live together for one so they couldn’t necessarily use it together.  Plus, there are definitely times when Darling Husband and I have two open bottles of wine in the fridge.

I just think it looks a little stingy to give singles their own but couples just get one.

Each person needs a favor.
