Donations

Collections on your special day

What the team here have thought about and would like to bring you today, are some tips on how to approach such an honourable and valiant endeavour. Firstly of course every wedding is different, like every person, every couple and every wedding dress. How you choose to approach a donations collection on your special day is just like all other things completely up to you. However, if you are in search of motivation please read on.

If you are in the position to invite a large number of people to your ceremonial day, you may want to consider instead of asking or expecting a wedding gift, you could ask for a donation for a charity organisation who works hard, which you support. There is a general tendency for wedding gifts to be a matter of duplicates and things unrequired either way, and instead making the funds that would have otherwise been spent in vain count is worthwhile. Especially for the organisation and the people affected by the charity you choose to help.

From starvation, to natural disasters, disease, and even medical support close to home, there are a vast number of charities in need of support from other humanitarians, and your contribution will not go unnoticed.

Many weddings are arranged so that the guests do not have to bring any extra money with them, and instead of having a cash collection box present, it’s a good idea to have a pledge box instead. Decoration in line with the rest of the theme of your event is a preference as it makes it a seamless part of your great day. If you need additional information and ideas please keep tuned, and don’t hesitate to get in touch with the team here at any time.
