Love both your ideas!

Mom and I made Fudge the night before and I purchased frosted boxes from Ebay. Everyone RAVED about it! So glad we did it

I too was worried I’d be overwhelmed in the days leading up to the “big day” but it went perfectly!

Both are great ideas.

Donations to charities (LOVE and SUPPORT KIVA), as great as they are, are not a favor, nor a substitute for a favor, however. If couples don’t want to have a favor , don’t have a favor. If couples  want to give a donation, just do it. They don’t need to tell their  guests about it. It really has nothing to do with them. We don’t send out notices announcing our charitable donations the rest of the year.

@atalante: sorry, no, that is not the point. The point is that wedding favors are entirely optional.

If we choose not to have one(which I am totally in favor of,by the way. most are a complete waste of time and money), simply don’t have one. You don’t need to explain your decision to your guests.

If we choose to make a donation, then announce it to our guests, it’s like we are saying”Aren’t we great? We have given this much money to this charity.”

From the guests’ point of view, the donation you made has nothing to do with them.

If you announce the donation as “in lieu of a favor” then have the cookies as favors, no matter what you call them, it seems a bit gratuitous to me.
