If you are talking about not giving favours and giving a donation instead, then I’ve seen that done a few ways throughout the boards.
One is to put a frame at each table that says something to the effect of “In leiu of a wedding favour, money has been donated to (charity) in loving memory of Mr. and Mrs. (last name).”
I have also seen something like a small business type card that says something similar at each place setting.
One had very small favours (I think it was a single chocolate), wrapped up with the donation card attached.
If you are asking guests to donate money to this charity instead of giving YOU a gift, you might want to include that on the invitation/wedding website, or have a link to the charity website that people can donate to.

I responded to your other thread, but I also don’t think you should put “in lieu of”. I think it is better worded “In honour of our marriage we have donated to the Hairless cats, with no tail, and fish breath rescue society”
