With so many options for wedding favors—DIY crafts, edible treats, thoughtful donations—it's easy to forget other details, like how many should be ordered and what that means for your budget. Our wedding etiquette experts are here to answer your wedding favor questions in our daily post.

Should our favors be ordered per person or per couple?

It all depends on the favor. If you're boxing something simple and sweet for guests to take home (M&M's, almonds, or other candies in your wedding colors, for instance), give one package to each guest. If, however, you're distributing a pricier item like silver votive candleholders, you can distribute one to each couple.
