one favor per couple??

so i found a wedding favor that is perfect with our theme...a key bottle opener... but they are a littlle more than I would like to spend. I thought I read somewhere that one favor per couple is acceptable but I am not sure. How would I put them out? Does that look too cheap? Should I just switch to a cheaper favor for everyone or just skip the favor?

    One favor per couple is acceptable.  Can you box the favors and have them at the place settings?  If so, that is what I would probably do.

    It is perfectly ok. We're doing something similar with coaster sets and are making them double as our escort cards. Each couple/family will get a set; they will pick them up before dinner and the tag attached will direct them to their tables.

    It should be fine at a couple weddings i have been to they have some of the bridesmaids pass them out and when they do they give one per couple. I wouldnt worry about it to much, but you should get what you want and not settle for anything else :)

    I've been to weddings where they did this and it was fine.  They put the favors on the table between where the couple/family was sitting and put the couple/family's last name on it.

    I was curious about this also for our wedding. We arent doing a place setting... would it be tacky to have a lil sign next to them that said one per couple?

    If you don't have place settings, just place them evenly apart on the table.  Dont worry about putting a sign.

    This may sound rude, but unless you have some amazing favor, not everyone may want it.  An example I can give is at my FI's brother's wedding, they had this handmade Italian ceramic flowers as the favor but there was only about 5 per table of  8 people. I personally don't like that kind of stuff so I left it and neither did the guys at the table.
