    so I posted this under the cruise thread....but more ppl look uner this thread so I thought i'd ask u ladies aswell
    ok so heres the deal i'm a vegan animal loving bride that understands that (my) 30 + wedding guests do not feel my same beliefs. I have made my OOT bags including:
    -koosies
    -beach towels
    -lip balm
    -vegan chocolate
    -water w/labels
    -beach balls
    -leis
    -sewing kits
    -crazy straws (for their drinks)
    -key card holders


    so what can I give my guest that will make a difference in there lives... what can I give them that will not impose my believes on them but make them understand them.

      How about a donation to a animal shelter in each of their names?

      That's a super good idea! Maybe also some kind of info pamphlet that educates them on what it means to be vegan. You might be able to package it in a cute way, with a ribbon that's personalized saying "a little bit about me!" or something along those lines?

        well i completely empathize with you (used to be vegan and vegetarian for 15 years) about the cause HOWEVER i am not sure that your wedding is the right venue to make a political statement KWIM?

        you could just include a small card that says something like, "in leiu of our Vegan beliefs and appreciation for all living creatures, we have made sure to include creulty-free products. we hope you enjoy! love, bride and groom"

          I was going to say the same thing. A donation in their name would be perfect! That's what my parents did for my sisters wedding instead of favors. It was wonderful to hear the responses from the guests!

              I like this too. Just make sure whatever you do is light hearted and doesn't sound to political. Alyssa is totally right about that.
