Might I suggest making some small gift tags and addressing the favors to the couple/family?  That way everybody doesn’t run and grab 3 or 4 of each favor.

I have a paper cutting tool I got from Michael’s which is in the shape of a card tag and used that along with some embossing tools, a calligraphy pen, and a hole puncher to make some lovely tags for our oot bags and some of the favors.

I would make and attach gift tags and address them to the recipients, so there would be no mistaking who the favors are for.  Have them placed at each table where the recipients are to be seated possibly!  Or place them in alphabetical order on the favor table, with signage saying both thank you and how to find your favor.

One of each per couple/family is plenty! They definitely don’t need to be by individual.

One per couple is fine. Plus, some guests may think that they can only choose one… so it will all even out I’m sure 🙂

Just like you stated, I think it depends on the favor.  Since you are making these favors (and like you said, two per couple is a bit much) I would plan for one per couple.  But, like a PP stated, you may want to label them per couple.  

We are giving our guests a substantial favor, so one per couple, or in the case of single guests, one per person…and we are using them as escort cards as well

Put them on the table, and do something like the woman gets the one jar and the man get the other or something, just so that it’s easier for yo, and the couple gets the whole set but everyone “gets something”
