How to Give Back on Your Wedding Day

November 21, 2014 | nicole

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we’re especially aware of how important it is to give back to our community. Even if you’re not planning a Thanksgiving affair, there are many ways you can give back on your wedding day any time of the year.

Donate Your Wedding Gown

Adorned in Grace – The proceeds of this amazing organization are used to promote awareness and prevention of sex trafficking, as well as towards restoration for trafficking survivors.

Bridal Garden – Perfect for New York brides, this bridal boutique sells discounted, donated wedding gowns and the proceeds benefit education initiatives for disadvantaged children in the city.

Brides Against Breast Cancer – Your donation to this wonderful project allows the organization to provide programs for the families of cancer patients.

Food for Thought

Feeding America – Donating your leftover food to local food banks is an easy way to help in an immediate way. Feeding America allows you to track down the closest food bank to your venue and learn about other ways to put your extra food to good use.

DC Central Kitchen – For DC brides with excellent taste, this company will cater your event while empowering the cooks who graduate from their culinary job training program.

In Full Bloom

Assisted Living – At the end of your wedding, you likely have an abundance of beautiful blooms. Instead of handing out the extra bouquets at the end of the night, donate your wedding flowers to a local nursing home.

Do Someone a Favor

I Do Foundation – In lieu of wedding favors, consider making a donation in honor of your guests. The I Do Foundation allows you to honor a loved one with a donation to their favorite charity, choose a charity in your community, or make a memorial donation.

Your wedding day is about celebrating love, and these are some great ways to spread that love a little further. Besides, giving back just feels good, doesn’t it? For more ideas to make your wedding day special, check out our wedding lighting inspiration board.
