How to support a cause on your wedding day
Have you thought about giving back on your wedding day? Many couples have a cause they're passionate about; whether it be recycling, volunteering, helping the homeless, or donating to cancer research. More and more couples are finding different ways of incorporating their love of giving back into their weddings.
A few ways to do this are:
Give your guests the option to donate to your charity of choice as their wedding gift to you. Guests can also give a gift certificate that allows the bride and groom to choose which charity they'd like to donate to through Justgive.org
Create a charitable wedding registry with I Do Foundation
Increase awareness by incorporating information throughout your reception; such as on your wedding favors.
Purchase environmentally friendly wedding favors
Arrange for any reception leftovers be given to those in need
Donate your wedding dress
Be sure to verify groups you want to donate to. Two sites that offer reports on a large list of charities are: Better Business Bureau and charitynavigator.org.
