How will you present your favor? Many couples will simply leave a note card on each place setting explaining the charitable donation & how much was given, although it is entirely up to you whether or not to disclose this. Those organizations above will give you some advice on how to word these cards. If you dont want to go down the route of note cards, you can arrange to have a sign or poster displayed somewhere within the reception so all your guests can see it. Another option is to announce it during the speeches or at some other appropriate moment.
The history of distributing wedding favors dates back to the sixteenth century. Many upper class Europeans would distribute parting gifts to their guests to demonstrate their wealth and stature in society. The gifts these wealthy families provided were elaborate and thoughtful signs of appreciation to all their guests. The first wedding favor that was given contained chocolates inside an elaborate jewel studded box, known by the French as a bonbonniere. Sugar was seen as a luxury to everyone in the sixteenth century. So, it was only appropriate that each gift contained some of the most expensive sugar made candy there was around. The bride and groom of the wedding were seen to be blessed and lucky, therefore by distributing gifts to all who attended their joyful day they could spread their blessings.
There are many ways to donate to charity & then present this type of favor to your wedding guests. Some couples will feel guilty about not providing their guests with a little memento of the day & so will set aside a small part of the budget for a token gesture of chocolate hearts or the like. However many couples need not worry as most guests are pleasantly surprised by the gesture & give very positive feedback to the couple after the wedding. If you are considering going down the charitable favor route here are a few options for you to consider.
