Wedding Favor Donations and Other Ways to Give Back

Wedding Favor Donation

An increasing number of couples are opting for weddings with a conscience. Whether it’s by having an eco-friendly wedding or choosing wedding favor donations in lieu of traditional wedding favors, it’s clear that couples are giving back.

Here are some ways that you can use your wedding as an opportunity to give:

1. Instead of traditional favors, choose wedding favor donations. Simply make a donation in each guest’s name to the charity of your choice. Place a card on each place setting letting guests know about the donation.

2. Donate your flowers to a nursing home or hospital.

3. Donate your leftover food to a local food bank. Make arrangements beforehand for the food bank to pick up food after the reception.

4. After the wedding, have your bridesmaids donate their dresses to Operation Fairy Dust, an organization that takes gently used gowns and gives them to underprivileged teens for proms and graduation.
