More couples replacing wedding favors with charitable donations

Instead of giving wedding guests a parting gift, some newlywed couples are offering charitable donations to organizations they care deeply about.

This emerging trend may arise for a number of a reasons ranging from a weakened economy to a genuine interest in improving the lives of others who may be suffering from a disease or human rights abuses.

Either way, it's important for a bride and groom to call attention to their charitable giving to their wedding guests.

A simple way to do this is with a sign on a table that informs everyone of which organization the bride and groom intend on donating to.

Sometimes, couples have left pamphlets out in case anyone is interested in learning more about the organization. Keep in mind that this may not be the right course of action for all weddings, as some guests may feel passionate about any kind of event having a political slant.

Also, couples have used this as a way to honor a relative that couldn't be there on their special day because of succumbing to a disease. For these instances, it may be a good idea to display a picture of the deceased relative and say the donation is "in honor" of them.
