New Wedding Trend

In these difficult times, couples are celebrating their big day by giving. More couples are incorporating a charitable element into their big day. While your wedding day is a true expression of you, couples are showing that expression by instead of thinking of themselves; they are thinking of others. They are doing this by making a donation to a charity of their choice in the name of their guests as wedding favors. For a wedding gift guests are being asked to donate to a charity of the couple’s choice or a cause that is important to them. Here are a few ideas that will help you implement kindness into your wedding day: when registering, look for offers that donate a percentage of all gifts purchased to a charity of your choice, make arrangements to donate left over food to a food bank or homeless shelter, donate leftover flowers to a nursing home, donate your wedding supplies to the Salvation Army or Goodwill.
