That was exactly what I was thinking! I think this is a fabulous idea, and oftentimes you can even set up a scholarship in their name, even if it's just a portion, not a full scholarship.

I love this idea, and I think they would really enjoy it. Perhaps you could donate to their alma mater? Just thinking out loud.

But Michelle, I love this story. What a totally generous thing to do, and look how their generosity has changed your life. Love these stories!

I have NO idea how to go about it... but I would guess you could contact a local high school and ask them? Or a college. But I think a local high school would probably be best.

Hey does anyone know how to go about this??
If you're going to establish something in their name at a university, I would contact their Foundation/Giving office and they'll be able to direct you in the right place. Same with other institutions, just start somewhere and I bet they'll get you to the right place quickly, since you're wanting to give them some money! Let us know how it goes!

What a great story, that's so wonderful how generous they are! I definitely agree with a heartfelt letter and a donation or scholarship fund to their alma mater.

I donâ€t know if your interested but since your getting married in Mexico. My good friends grandparents do a lot of work for the school systems in Mexico. My friend has visited the areas. They are very indigent they donâ€t have the money or resources as we have in America so a 100.00 donation in their names would be special to the children and go along with the Mexican wedding. Just a thought to look into. Good Luck!

Wow! How wonderful! I love hearing about people who are so generous ...

I was going to suggest something similar. You said that they are both really into education - so this would seem really appropriate. I went through nursing school at a community college completely on scholarship money. Some were like $150 per semester - while this doesn't seem like much - they all added up to cover tuition, books, nursing supplies, etc. I was recently divorced with a 2 year old and an infant ---- those scholarships provided me a way to provide for my family.

At a community college, you could probably do something small and it might go further.

    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.

    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.
