    What about doing a mini cupcake from Billy’s and a small tag that says a donation was made to the American Cancer Society to remember all of our loved ones we have lost to cancer?

    Honestly, I don’t understand the donation-favor.

    If you want to make a donation, go ahead and make it. But there’s no need to get it involved in the wedding or announce it!

    @CityBearBride:  what do you care what they think? I think anything done specifically to show where the money was spent is in poor taste.

    @CityBearBride:  I like the cookie n donation idea.

     

    Personally Im tired of tacky dumb favors. Lets be honest has anyone gotten something show stopping that they couldnt live without?  Giving donations are better, in my opinion. At least you are helping out society.

    @CityBearBride:  I am from NYC and I now live in Indianapolis.  We are also doing a speakeasy theme (a subtle one) 🙂

    DEFINITELY the black and white cookie favor!  That’s my fave too! 🙂

    Too many good choices! I voted champagne, but after reading your description about family dying from cancer, I would choose cookie + donation. Also you said your family really liked it at another wedding 🙂

    Can I ask where you hare having your wedding? It sounds amazing! And personally, I like either the cookie or deck of cards idea! The deck of cards is something people with use and keep.
