I just heard of this idea. In place of a favor a couple gave each guest a card stating that a donation was given to a specific charity. I think it's a great idea, what are your thoughts on this? Thanks!
There is a sticky at the top of the Favors page you should read. The overwhelming majority of people will tell you that these are not for the guests. They are a way to draw attention to yourself to say "Look how selfless we are."Look at it this way. Even though a favor is a cheap little trinket or bit of food, you are essentially saying "We got you a gift. What? Where is it? Oh, no silly, you don't get to have it. We gave it to Sue over there. But it is still your gift. Aren't we great?"Another pitfall in doing this is that you may unintentionally offend your guests. I have hated SGK for years and refuse to buy anything with its pink ribbon on it. A breast cancer charity may seem like it would not offend anyone, but as we all found out a few months ago, it is quite capable of offending a great number of people.
