There’s no exact number for amount of cookies at a wedding. The bakers agree it’s somewhere between six per guest up to one-and-a-half dozen per guest. But some exceed even that generous amount, covering multiple tables with trays of sweet delicacies.
The general rule of thumb is to have between 3-6 cookies available per person (a good ‘handful’). This will vary depending on the size of the cookies, and whether there will be other desserts and appetizers; some guests may prefer savory snacks over sweets while others might prefer a slice of cake over cookies.
