I have a feeling suggesting 1.5-2 is a bit of a scam considering every wedding I’ve ever been to has a ton of cake/cupcakes left. I’ve never seen even 1 serving per person get eaten.

There were a lot of people at my wedding who ate more than 2 cupcakes. My Maid/Matron of Honor drunkenly put 4 in her purse (not that I’m advocating that most normal people would do this, but she’s special…). I would definitely order about 50% more than number of guests, so 1.5/guest.

We had six doxen (72 cupakes) and 56 people. We also had a few leftovers. This was about 1.25 per person.

My philosophy is better to have extra than run out! 1.5 sounds like good number.

My package has full size and minis, but 1.5 full size per guest is average.
