Has anybody been to a wedding where a charity donation was given in place of favors? What did you think of the idea? Did you hear anything negative from other guests?
We are thinking of doing this in memory of our grandparents, My Fiance and I both had a grandparent die of colon cancer and alzhiemers and I would like to donate to both a Colon cancer charity and an Alzhiemers charity. We were going to do a write up for the tables and then put a little chocolate with it.

I’ve been to a wedding where they donated to charity (I forget which) and they had a little note at the tables. They also gave out wrist bands (like the Livestrong ones) with the name of the charity on it–so I guess that was sort of a favor. I thought it was a very nice idea because half the time I bring the favor home and it just sits around and collects dust until I stuff it into a box/drawer somewhere. That is, unless it’s something that can be eaten/used. I didn’t hear anyone say anything about it. I say go for it!
