Stressing about favor idea until NOW

Recommended Posts

A donation as a favor? I was thinking Joe and I could pick whatever foundation we wanted, and donate to them. Has anyone heard of or done this? I know I would want to donate to an animal shelter, even though Joe just made me feel like I should do something else!! **$$##@@!! He wants to donate to a cancer foundation, but I said we can do both. What do you all think? My sister and her hubby donated to my dads Veteran's Hall, they made a nice frame type thing and placed it by the guest book for their guest to see. I'll probably do that.

 

I know Joe didn't mean to put a damper on my animal shelter idea, but he did. rant.gifHe'll be paying for that later! censored.gifSON-OF-censored.gif

I was originally going to donate to the Canadian Cancer Soceity...they have things especially for wedding favors! ***Plus its a tax write off - here in canada anyway!!***

I think it's a fantastic idea!

I love the idea...I have always wondered though how much do you give?

 

I think I would do this for sure if I just knew how to choose how much? What looks cheap? What would be over board?

I think that is a great idea. I went to a wedding a few months ago, and as the favor each guest received a pack of life savers and a quote that said" thanks for being a life saver a donation has been made in your name to XYZ foundation"

fils just went to a wedding a month ago that the favors were donations to an environmental group. I think they made little cards and put at each ones seat that had a little saying on it.

 

I would definately do an animal shelter, like maybe the North League animal rescue or your local shelter. Maybe you could do half animal shelter, half cancer org. Is that stupid?

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
