Posting this here rather than OF, as I want the benefit of the experience of already married girlies.
Just ordering some more bits and pieces for my wedding stationery. Did you do a mass booklet for every guest, or did you just do a random number like 100, 120, 150?
i think we had like 1 booklet per couple
We had 1 per couple. Now that was probably too many. A lot girls and immediate family did keep them as souvenirs but a lot were left behind at the end of the mass so maybe a bit of a waste.
Then again we were at a wedding a few weeks ago who just a handful and loads of people were looking around for them and especially us ladies were disappointed at no keepsake.
I think we had 140 at the wedding and I did 90 booklets? It's a little bit more than 1 per couple but it's usually only the women that will actually look at them and follow it or keep them. I had about 60 left in the end!
I had about 100 and the reason was that the lady who made my invitations did an offer at the time for 1 mass booklet cover for every invitation i ordered.
Otherwise i would have done 1 per couple..plus priests, readers, and your and OH!
Thanks ladies. I've 165 guests, I'm going to do 100 books!
my friend actually did mine as a wedding pressie, twas a great idea.
dont forget to keep 3 separate ones, for yourself, oh and the priest,
and maybe have ones for parents, and wedding party too(kept aside)

Sounds like plenty. We did one per couple aswell a d it worked out fine
A girl I work with makes her own cards/invites/wedding booklets, and she told me that there is really no need to have too many. They are such a waste, most of them get left behind on the seats! She told me about 50 is plenty, as its really only family that use them.
