Wedding Favors Guests Won’t Leave Behind
May 6, 2022
When shopping for guest favors, we know you’re hoping to find something meaningful that will work for all guests and won’t end up in a landfill. It sounds like a tall order, but it can be done! Your gifts have the ability to do good, and VOW for Girls has some great options that fit the bill.

Donations to VOW In The Names of Your Guests

There’s nothing like a charitable donation in honor of your guests to make your entire party feel the love. Printed cards at each place setting which display the personalized donations will charm your loved ones while supporting our world’s girls. What’s better than that? And no plastic knick knacks end up in the trash!

Donations in lieu of favors add even more meaning to your wedding and you’re supporting girls’ futures – win win!

Suggested Language

Here’s some suggested language on how to communicate this with your guests:
“Thank you for sharing this day with us. In lieu of traditional wedding favors, we have made a donation in your name to VOW for Girls.”
“On our special day, we’ve chosen in lieu of wedding favors to donate to a charity that is near and dear to both of our hearts, VOW for Girls.”
“In honor of our guests we are making a donation to VOW for Girls to help ensure every girl has the right to choose love on her own terms.”

VOW Tip: Suggested Donations

Not sure what an appropriate donation amount is if you opt for donations in lieu of favors? We suggest using your guest count as a reference, and multiplying that by whatever you would have spent on physical favors.
VOW couple Helena & Ignacio opted for donations in lieu of favors and 100% of their donations went directly to underfunded grassroots efforts to help girls around the world. Every dollar counts, as just $350 can provide transportation for a group of 25 young women to attend job training classes for 3 months and $181 can cover all of one girl’s costs to attend school for a year – from school fees to supplies and transportation.
