Charitable charm

Jun 3, 2014 | By: The Wise Wedding Planner

Getting married is one of the happiest days in a woman’s life. What better way to share the blessings with others not as fortunate and dream up charitable wedding ideas to make your wedding day even more special.

A wedding registry can be created with the I Do Foundation wedding site. Couples or brides can choose from the many charities listed in the site that will benefit from their registration. Wedding favours can also take the form of a donation for each of the wedding guests. Some ideas of worthy causes include adopting an endangered animal, saving the rainforest, helping sick children or donating to cure cancer.

Another charitable wedding idea is giving a customized JustGive card for family members, friends, customers and associates. JustGive is an eco-friendly charity gift card that lets the recipient choose and support a favourite from almost 2 million charities.

A wedding reception is a feast, and as many feasts go there are leftovers. Leftover food from a wedding can be donated to local food banks which in turn will use your leftovers to feed people who are going hungry. In the same way, those gorgeous flowers used to decorate the altar and the reception venue can be donated to charitable institutions like a home for the elderly or some non-profit association who visits the sick or the terminally ill.

Aside from leftovers and flowers, wedding dresses and bridesmaid’s dresses can be resold for the benefit of a breast cancer patient. If your new partner is up to it, you can also volunteer for a cause instead of going on a honeymoon. What can be more romantic than sharing a few days of your honeymoon bliss volunteering for a charitable cause? It may even strengthen the bond that binds you.

Other charitable wedding ideas can be choosing a non profit-owned or managed venue for the reception. This can include a museum, university or a garden that uses their revenues for worthy causes. Vendors can also be requested to donate something to a charity of your choice.
