I run across plenty of couples perplexed about what they should give their wedding guests as parting gifts or favors. The days of cute keys chains and wine stoppers are over and have been replaced with more desirable favors in the form of edible tasty treats. But is it truly required for you to give your guests a "favor"? In my opinion...NO. Especially after you have just fed them a fabulous meal and offered an open bar for the last 4 hours, plus provided linens, chairs, invitations, etc. Get my point? :)
But, should you want to make a gesture of kindness on behalf of your wedding and your guests, consider making a donation to your favorite charity or organization in lieu of gifts. Check out some of the ways you can let your guests know.

|A tented card on each table letting guests know the charity|
|Change the label on the wine bottle to alert guests of your lovely gesture in there honor|
Until next time...WEDologize!
