1- Nope! Yes they make a nice touch but I never notice when they are not their.

2- I usually see one favor per couple. Hmm but one cup for 2 people? Do they have any set with two?

im not sure on what etiquette says, but we didn’t do menus as everyone is being served ckn and filet (no vegetarians in our guestlist)…

and we did 1 favor per person, but we are only doing jordan almonds. i’ve heard of both (doing 1 for each couple) and giving a favor to each guest depending on what the favor is…

i think whatever fits your budget and plan should be okay with anyone. but i am not ms. proper by any means! 😛

1.  Menu cards are certainly NOT required, but  I can say it’s nice to have the details about what you are eating.  You can certainly get away with a couple per table if you want, and again you don’t need them.

2.  We are doing bottles of chile powder for favors, so we are going with one per household.  I think one cup per couple would be fine.

Menu cards serve no purpose at all if guests have preordered their entree and you are having a sitdown/plated meal of any type. Despite popular belief, they are much more practical for buffets to prevent traffic jams, etc.

Favors are never required and most people will not miss them if you skip them. Even when they are there (yes this applies to edibles), people will often leave them behind. Edibles are one per person, non-edibles are one per couple/family. Certain items such as mugs should be given per person. In your case, one mug per family is not practical (but by no means inappropriate which answers your original question). Is it possible to skip the saucer (which is not needed) and get another mug per family? You can order them in bulk with custom designs online very cheaply.
