Shifts In Tradition: Brides And Grooms Skip Traditional Favors And Honor Guests With Charitable Donations

By | February 21, 2014

SYRACUSE, N.Y., June 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — When it comes to wedding favors, sugared almonds and monogrammed trinkets are starting to become a thing of the past – instead, many couples are honoring their guests with gifts to charity. To encourage this large-hearted trend, Bella Figura ( offers complimentary letterpress or foil stamped favor cards to any customer whose wedding favors are a charitable donation. “We’ve found that now more than ever, brides and grooms are turning the tradition of wedding favors into an opportunity to support the causes they care deeply about. Charitable favors are an inspiring testament to a couple’s love, and we wanted to recognize couples who make that decision,” says Bella Figura owner Debbie Urbanski.

In addition to complimentary favor cards, Bella Figura provides expert etiquette and wording advice. Here are Bella Figura‘s tips for creating the perfect charitable favor cards:

  • Provide a website where guests can find more information about the cause you’re supporting.
  • Keep text minimal and light-hearted. Mention the charity, express love and gratitude for your guests’ support, and finish with a heartfelt signature.
  • If the cause you’re supporting isn’t widely known, a brief description about the organization can be included on the card.
  • For a cohesive look, your favor cards can pick up on the style and colors of your wedding invitations.

“The number of couples making meaningful, philanthropic gifts in lieu of favors is growing stronger each year, and we’re thrilled to be able to encourage that trend,” says Urbanski.
