I was talking to my BFF tonight and we were talking about wedding favors. She and I came to the conclusion that most favors end up getting left behind and is usually just a waste of money. We got to throwing ideas around and she suggested donating to a charity or something that has a lot of meaning to us as a couple. We love the idea. We are thinking about donating to the rescue that we adopted our dog from. Its a non profit and the woman that runs it is amazing and does so only on donations. We love them so much we plan on rescuing another dog from them in a few years. If we did this, we would write something out and put it in a frame on each table explaining that we have donated to the rescue and so on.

My question.. do you think that this would be acceptable to guests?

Well tbh its actually what I plan to do, I have a heart condition and i plan to split the favours between our Heart Foundation and also DF's family have lost lots of people to cancer, so Cancer research. Personally I think it's a really worthwhile thing to do. What i'm doing is picking a place card holder in place of a favour that people can take home if they want, but if not, it was never a money waster

Those are great ideas. Wedding favors arent something a guest needs to "expect" anyway, its just a perk and can be what you want. Were already maxed out (and then some) on our budget so were not doing favors.

I think that's a great idea! We gave heart shaped cookie cutters and people loved them and still use them.
