Wedding and Party Favors: Making a Donation In Lieu of Wedding Favors

A bride feels selfish replacing her party favors with a donation made on behalf of her guests

(page 1 of 2)

When it comes to party favors, the choice is up to you. Be as creative and as clever as you wish, or do nothing at all.

Dear The Wedding Guru: “I really like the idea of donations instead of giving out wedding favors, but I have a couple of questions. Are there tax consequences that I need to know about? Do we make a donation for each, or do we make one larger donation in our name and take the tax deduction? I’m feeling selfish about getting a monetary advantage instead of our guests getting something in hand.”
