This is probably a weird question. But is there a percentage to guests for favors that you should order? I mean, I know a lot of people tend to not care about the favors and some don’t even take them home. Just like the guest list where 10% say no, is there a percentage that probably won’t take a favor? I just don’t want to be stuck with 50 extra favors when I go home.
I have 175 guests total (not incl. kids); 110 if you consider every couple and single who will get the invititation. Also – do couples feel stiffed if you only give a favor as a couple and the singles get their own?

I think it depends on what the favor is. In our case, ours is edible, so we’ve actually ordered more than the number of guests we anticipate.
How far in advance do you need to order the favors?

It depends on 2 things – (1) whether the favors are edible or not and (2) whether you will be placing the favors on the tables where the guests are seated or leaving them on a separate table near the exit.
If placing on dinner tables: If edible order one per guest. If not edible order one per couple.
I don’t really know what to tell you about how many to order if they’re on a separate table near the exit. Hopefully someone who has done this before can offer some advice! I like the idea of having it on the tables as they can provide extra decoration and guests are also sure that the favors are theirs to take!
