Donations In Lieu of Favors. How To Word To Guests

We have always thought the idea of giving a donation in lieu of a wedding favor as a nice idea. The couple can focus on a worthy cause that gets a nice chunk of money that would otherwise go to something small and probably not all that significant.

We started asking around and were a little shocked to find that donation wedding favors upset some guests. We heard that either guests didn’t like the choice of organization for political or social reasons or the guest thinks charity is a private matter and that announcing the donation in lieu of a wedding favor is tacky. But with careful planning, we think there is a way to tastefully and tactfully communicate the donation when delivering the favor. Below we found the best sayings and quotes to use when you give a donation in lieu of a wedding favor.

Donation: Make a Wish Foundation

Make a Wish Foundation

In lieu of wedding favors or another creation,
We’ve taken your name and made a special donation
For those children suffering and in pain,
For those children looking for the sunshine through the rain.

We can help them meet their favorite movie star,
Or travel to a place that can’t be reached by car,
We can simply help them get outside to fish,
Either way — together we’ll help a child get closer to their wish.
