Today’s wedding planning tip is thanks to Kathy Boehm of Simply Elegant Affairs. Kathy offers planning assistance as well as Day-Of Coordination.
I suggest to brides and their grooms who are searching for that perfect keepsake for their guests: Why not consider a donation to your favorite charity in the guests names? A lot of money is being spent on wedding favors that become “throw aways.”
Perhaps there is a family member or friend who has been affected by serious illness or the newlywed’s favorite cause is animal rescue. There are a multitude of charities out there that will appreciate this gesture of generosity.
An explanation can be displayed at the place card table in the entry area of the reception or at each individual table. Guests are always moved by the thoughtfulness of the newly married couple. A great start for a new beginning!
This idea can be implemented for any type of party or corporate affair.
