Is is proper to give each couple ONE wedding favor at the wedding reception, or should it be a favor for each guest? We’ve been told both have been done. We’re leaning on one per guest. Thanks.
You’ve absolutely got the right idea to be leaning towards one favor per person. This indeed is the ‘proper’ and most gracious way to handle the issue of favors.
While it is true that some couples give only one favor per couple, this is the exception rather than the norm and it is not recommended according to proper wedding etiquette.
