Skip Wedding Favors, Make A Donation Instead

Wedding favors are nice, whether it’s some candy, a candle, or some other trinket, but they will probably collect dust on some forgotten shelf until it’s time for you to move. Now consider this alternative: make a donation to a worthy cause instead of buying wedding favors. Let’s say you have 200 guests, if you would’ve spent about $5 per guest on wedding favors, consider donating a thousand dollars to the [insert name of a worthy charity here].

When everyone gets to their table, you could leave a note saying a donation was made to the charity or just mention it in a toast. Some people may be upset they didn’t get a candle or some candy but they’ll probably get over it.
