How about doing one bag per family and then having smaller bags inside for each member of that family? That way, it would be easier to plan how many to make and you can keep them organised into family groups, plus you can give age-appropriate bags for the children/teenagers. Just an idea…

I gave one per hotel room- but they had enough snack/drinks for about 2-3 people

We are doing one per family. If two couples are sharing a room, we’ll leave 2.

We are probably going to do one per family and then have a smaller bag inside for those families that have younger children!

We are giving one per couple, and one per child (but the child ones are obviously going to be smaller). We figured it was easier that way, ’cause we don’t have to keep track of whose bag is whose when we’re building them.

Older kids (teens) will probably also get their own bag, but it’ll be more similar to the adults’ bags than the kids’ bags. But we don’t have many of those coming.

not exactly sure what you plan on putting in them but i would make smaller individual bags so that each person gets a bag.  younger children can have more juvenille looking oot bags that would have more suitable contents (something to occupy them). 

i think children would love having their own gift bag  (an incentive to be well behaved at the wedding).
