Another IdeaWhy not give something more meaningful? Consider a donation favor to your favorite cause or charity. Rather than another trinket for guests to carry home and put in a drawer or toss out, a donation can make a lasting impact and help spread the happiness of your wedding day far beyond your reception hall.
The I Do Foundationis one great option, or you can go directly through the organization to give the donation.
You can inform guests of your donation through cards on the tables, scrolls, or even a framed notice on the escort card table.
For our wedding, we gave a gift to the The Alliance Against Alveolar Soft Part Sarcoma, in support of my Maid of Honor, who was diagnosed with this rare cancer during our engagement. You can read about her incredible struggle and faith as she is writing it for the San Francisco Chronicle.
