Donation as wedding favor

Recommended Posts

We are also giving a donation to the American Cancer Society because cancer has affected both of our lives. I am going to get some pretty cardstock and DIY these. I am thinking about writing something like, "In lieu of a traditional wedding favor, a donation has been made to The American Cancer Society in honor of our loved ones who are here with us in spirit on this joyous occasion." I am thinking of putting a picture of those loved ones who have passed away on the bottom of it to honor them. I know it's a bit sad but it's also very meaningful. I went on justgive.org and they had every organization you could possibly want. They do print cards for you if you want but I am going to make my own and tuck them into the napkin at each place setting.

We are doing this, too. We're doing one lump sum donation based on the # of guests, and then making cards that say something like, "In Lieu of Favors, a donation has been made to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation in your honor." We're expecting ~130 guests, so individual donations would be difficult. We'll probably just make our own little white cards, maybe glue a small pink ribbon to them, etc.

In addition to the placecards we will receive, we also bought LiveStrong bands for our 100 guests.
We are going to attach the bands to the cards, but are debating whether to set them at the dinner tables at the reception or include them with the OOT stuff.
What do you think?
I put the wrist bands on the chairs at the ceremony, this way it made everyone pause and think of my dad for a moment. It made me feel as though the presence of my dad was with us.

Also I would do a lump sum, it is much easier for the organization you are donating to, no one will ever know the difference.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
