Want to do something meaningful and memorable for your wedding? Why not earmark a portion of your wedding budget for a charity or cause in the name of your guests? Subsequently, you can then create wedding donation cards and tell guests that a generous gift has been given in their name in lieu of traditional wedding favors.
