MY FAVORS - Check!

Friday, January 23, 2009

Thanks to my lovely coordinator, Ashley aka Bride Sophisticate, I have found the perfect favors for my wedding. How great are these?

In her blog, Ashely says...

DONATION FAVORS!!

As the end of 2008 draws near, it got me thinking as to what will be up and coming in the wedding world for 2009? One idea? Donations as wedding favors.

Usually, a good majority of those Jordan almonds get left behind on the table. Why spend money on nuts when you can put those dollars to a good cause?

A great how-to was done by Mrs. Lovebug on 
Weddingbee.

What she did was provide each guest with 4 tokens (each token equaling $1.00) in an envelope with instructions at each place setting as to how to use them.


 



She provided glass bowls with each charity they had chosen to which guests could drop their tokens into. At the end of the night, they tallied up all the tokens in each of the bowls so guests felt involved and knew where their money was going.



I think this is a wonderful idea and one that I hope catches on! For more information or instruction on how to construct the chips click here.

Thanks Ashley for another wonderful idea. Not only do I feel good about this, but I'm sure my guests will feel the same.
