Wedding Favours – Opt From Plan Canada’s Gifts Of Hope Catalogue

Toan Dinh asked:

When my husband and I were deciding on wedding favours to give our guests, my best friend suggested soap. She had recently helped a girlfriend make soap for her wedding favours and it was a hit with the wedding guests. I liked the idea and thought it would be fun to come up with our own soapy concoctions.

The wedding favours turned out great. They looked (and smelled) really cute, bundled into coloured linen, and tied up with string, a thank-you tag attached to each.

Despite the effort, a lot of the favours were forgotten by our guests, buried under crumpled napkins, overlooked as the evening wore on and they got caught up in talking or dancing. Bites out of some of the colourful soaps made us realize a few guests had mistaken the wedding favours for candy – oops, we hadn’t thought of that when we were making them to look and smell so good.

Looking for wedding favours that won’t leave a bad taste in the mouths of your guests? Plan Canada’s Gifts of Hope catalogue is your answer. The catalogue is filled with gifts that will make a real difference in the lives of children and families in developing countries.

Your wedding guests don’t need another trinket that will get lost in the shuffle, collect dust on a shelf or end up in a recycling bin. But there are families out there who need water, who need food, who need hope. And you can provide it to them. That’s a wedding favour your guests wouldn’t soon forget.

For $100, in honour of your wedding guests, two women could be taught to read and write and change their lives and the lives of their children. For $300, you could give your wedding guests the gift of water for an entire classroom of children, who could then focus on their thirst for knowledge instead of their thirst for water. Your wedding favours could even be a collection of animals (six rabbits are $35, a pig is $40, a goat is $75), which bring with them the multiple gifts of food, income for education and healthcare, and a potential livelihood.

Wondering how to “give” these unusual wedding favours to your guests?

Plan has downloadable place cards, table cards and a mini-poster to notify your guests of your unique gift. Get creative: if your gift is a menagerie of different animals, why not have a goat table, a pig table, a rabbit table, and so on? Find cute pictures of the animals to print off and place on each of the tables alongside Plan’s table card to help illustrate the wedding favour.

Your wedding day will be one of the most momentous, meaningful days of your life. It’s a day that should reflect the two of you and what matters to you, along with honouring all of the people in your lives who have brought you to this point.

Why not do all of that by purchasing a Gift of Hope? Give hope and change lives.
