After our twelfth birthday, most of us stop giving out party favors every time we throw a casual shindig. But the tradition is back when it comes time for your wedding. Why? We can’t figure it out. Either way, unlike in elementary school, anything goes.
You won’t lose your social standing if your mom fills the loot bags with healthy snacks. That’s mom’s fault. When it’s time for your wedding, it’s on you and you definitely do not want to be the one without memorable wedding favors.
The unlimited options can be a little overwhelming, but there are a few common categories you can start out with. We’ll help you to decide what areas to focus on when searching for the perfect favor for your guests.
5.) Charity Donations
These are becoming more popular and there are now a number of organizations that will take care of printing beautiful cards for your guests explaining that a donation has been made in their honor. It’s a lovely way to thank your guests while helping others and spreading kindness.
As much as a particular cause may be important to you, try to stick to organizations that are non-controversial. It’s not the day to share your political views. Having a donation given in your name to a cause you don’t approve of isn’t just worse than a candy bar, it’s insulting. But even while keeping that in mind, there are a wide variety of organizations you can choose from. More neutral options would be any organizations that support children, animals or arts. As an added bonus, some organizations will print your message about the donation right onto blank place-cards so you’ve really got all your bases covered. Some examples of organizations that would well as wedding favors include The American Cancer Society, Make-a-Wish Foundation, UNICEF and Save the Elephants.
