With heart disease on both sides of our families we decided to give a donation to the American Heart Association in lieu of giving a favor to our guests. For each guest that attended we made a donation to the American Heart Association in their name. We received a plaque from the American Heart Association that we put on our gift table, showing that we donated the money.
But our guest didn’t go home empty handed, we had purchased donuts and put them on each of our guest plates. Get it….donuts/dough-nation. We thought it would be a perfect snack to take home with them from the wedding. The donut was wrapped up and had a cute ribbon and a cute little saying on it. Lots of love and work went into them. We even had our parents help out the day before the wedding. My dad was cutting ribbon, while my mom was tying the knots. What a family project :). Anyway, it seemed to get good feedback, so I am just sharing our idea with you.
