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.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
