Another option is to do small cards from Vista Print.  I did these for my phot upload cards.  You could get 250 free business cards (only paid $5.47 in shipping).

We are doing this also.  I printed off a little blurb about it and have rolled up each one into a scroll and tied a ribbon around it.  These will be placed at each table setting in place of a traditional favor.  Here’s what ours says:

"In lieu of favors,

K and J

have made a donation

to St. Jude Children’s

Research Hospital in 

loving memory of 

J’s sister,

(her name here)"

I went to a wedding where they just wrote it on a card (similar to what Snowflake was saying) and said, A donation has been made in your name to XX Charity in memory of XX. I plan on doing the same for Breast Cancer. Right now I have my eye on these cute favors. It’s a plantable pink ribbon. 10% of proceeds go towards two charities. 10% isn’t a lot so If I dont go with these I will do the business card route. Maybe attach it to some chocolates or jordan almonds or a ribbon shaped cookie?


 I’ll also be looking into http://www.bridesagainstbreastcancer.org/
They will send you customized cards to put at each place setting to announce the gift of a donation in the guests honor.

A friend did this at her wedding – she printed out a sweet little note on cardstock (cut to about 3" x 2") and tied a co-ordinating ribbon around it, so it still prettied up each plate setting!

If you’re adding your words to something else, like the menu or program – I would definitely indicate that it’s "in lieu of favors"
