I think so!  Not everyone takes one.  I am having 200 guests and making 150 programs, if that helps.

vee,

We just did one program for each person. We had leftovers, but I thought it was better to have too many than not enough.

I did 100 programs for 150 guests.  Since most people come in pairs or as families, I think we’ll have enough.  My FH and I make sure to only take one when we go to others’ weddings, especially since we don’t keep them!

most definitely.  1 did one per couple/family and still had leftover.

I made 165 for 320 people and had a lot of leftovers because our final count ended up being only 230.  Ugh, that was one DIY project that I started way too early on and ended up having to spend more time on than I needed.

It’s usually a 1:2 ratio.

I made 75 for 90 guests (mostly couples, with very few single guests) and had about 10 leftover.
