So I’ve been trying to decide on what to do for our wedding favors. Well I thought up this great idea… or so I thought. I was told it wasn’t really a gift but everything I see I try to think “Would I keep this” and the only thing I could think of was something edible.
So I decided to unite 2 of the great passions in my life… Chocolate and Animal Rescues haha. I decided to make edible chocolates in the shape of dog bones with a little tag stating “For every guest present at our wedding we are donating to …” and pick a rescue. My Fiance an I love our “problem children”… since we adopt the un-adoptable ones… and we thought it was a great way to help and yet still a present with homemade chocolate!
Is this stupid? I was thinking of the tag being a picture of us with our “problem children” .I don’t know… be honest ! haha

I am with you! There are very few non-edible favors that I have ever bothered to take home from a wedding.
I think this is a great idea.

I think its a nice idea, I think favours are just another way for the wedding industry to fleece more money out of already overextended brides. If you are going to spend money give it to something worthwhile!

I love this idea!!! something the guests will actually like and something for a greater good. As a guest I would much rather you spend money on a charity than on a plastic widget that I would have thrown out anyways.

I actually saw pictures of a wedding at my same venue and they had little boxes and when you opened them up they said – in lieu of a favor, a donation has been made to “name of the animal rescue group.” and then they had pictures in the boxes and it said something like – all of the animals shown are available for adoption. I saved the picture because i thought of doing something exactly like that!
In speaking to the catering director at a different venue i asked him about favors and he mentioned how the best favors he’s seen are when people make a donation to a cause important to them.

I think this is a great idea! We’re doing something similar… Chocolates for our guests with a little note saying that we are donating to XYZ charity. Go for it!
