What do you think of charity favours?
H2B and I arent big fans of favours at weddings, we have found that at every wedding we have been to most of them were left behind on tables
instead of not doing any at all, we like the idea of charity favours. We have picked 2 charities (one in memory of h2b's mum, and one in memory of my dad) and each person would get a small pin badge on a card which says something along the lines of "instead of traditional favours, a donation has been made on your behalf to two charities very close to our hearts"
what is your honest opinion on doing this??
Until I googled it I had no idea that it was so controversial! it seems many people think that it is bragging about donating, that it is rude to choose to do this on behalf of people, people would prefer an actual gift and also people should be able to choose their own charities as they may not want to support ours.
in my view, the reason we are providing these cards is not to brag but the badges will provide something for each person to take home, and it is more a nod to our parents that we are making people aware of the charities. Also would many people really object to charities Eg. Not wanting to support finding a cure for cancer?
