Instead of Favors We Are....

Hi all,

So, FH and I were discussing wedding favors and we came up with the perfect replacement.

Instead of the favors, we are donating what we would have spent to a charity called, "Angels of America's Fallen" which is an organization that supports positive activities and grief outlets for families (especially children) who have lost first responder / military loved ones.

FH and I are both in law enforcement, so we felt like it was the right thing to do.

    I think this is amazing! My fiancé is a LEO and my brothers are in the military so we have considered doing the same thing!

    Love it! We also just printed little cards stating that we made a donation for each place setting 😊 or you could do a sign or something. I think it's nice for people to know at the wedding

    LOVE this idea! As someone who comes from a long line of service members, I have a soft spot for military families.

    We're doing something similar- each of our ten tables will have a donation card to a different charity that mean something to us as a couple.

    One for each of the three rescues we adopted our pets, the non-profit organization that runs the place where we had our first date, our local library branch, the food banks I volunteer for, a local environmental non-profit.

    While most our in our community, we're donating to two national organizations: Child's Play and Lumos. Child's Play helps with acquiring game systems for pediatric hospitals. And Lumos , founded by JK Rowling, works towards finding kids in orphanages all over the world loving homes.

    Thank you. 😁 We both felt it was silly to put all of that time and effort into favors no one will take.
