    Love the idea of donations, especially to a charity that’s close to your heart. If I were a guest, I would LOVE it. And I’m sure the people coming to your wedding have an idea that your sister and Maid/Matron of Honor are battling this, so that makes it extra special! Go with donation for sure!

    I love the idea of a charity favor. I, myself, would donate to the Humane Society. Unfortunately, my Fiance thinks that is corny and I am quite upset at him for it. Your guests probably won’t even notice that they didn’t get favors. Most of them don’t take it home anyways. I say do the donatation.

    the charity thing is better… and honestly more memorable for everyone, especially you and your FH and Maid/Matron of Honor.  and of all the weddings i’ve been to, i really didn’t give a crap about what favor i received, i think if one of my friends had done the charity thing i would have been more impressed.

    I think donating would be really nice, especially since it’s a cause that is so close to you.

    How about making it possible for people to donate online

    Favors are never required. Guests do not expect them or miss them if they are not there. Edibles are best if you must have them, otherwise they get left behind. A donation to a charity is for the couple, not the guests. Also, guests don’t need or want to know that it was given and generally prefer that it be kept private between the couple and the charity, and being given in the couple’s name’s not the guests’.

    Save the money that you would spend for both and use it for food or entertainment that guests will remember or put it toward better photography.
