@Marcylala:  I am so sorry to hear about the loss of both your mothers! This must have been so so so hard for both of you.  I think asking for donations to charity would be really fantastic – I wish I had a clever idea for you, but went hunting for answer for you. Not sure if this answer on the knot helps you in anyway:


Also this article I found interesting:


Hope these help in some way or another!

I’d probably leave the charity information off the invitation, but instead pass the word among family and friends. I’d also create a website about the reception and instead of registry links to Williams Sonoma or Macy’s, you could have a paragraph on why you decided to donate to a charity and a link to the charities.

Contact the charity and let them know that you will be including them in your registry. They will be able to provide you with the names of people that donate in your name. (I included three charities in my registry.)Make sure that if people donate to the charities on their own, they reference the Marcylala wedding.
