Find Wedding Ideas: Give Back

How Your Wedding Can Give Back

Because we care...and we know you do, too.

Sure, you're going to drop a chunk of change on your wedding, but you'll feel a lot better about it if your spending also reflects your values and makes a difference in the world.

We've put together some resources to help you do just that.

"Because we care" is one of our mottos at Here Comes The Guide. The embodiment of our company culture and core values.

• We care about the work we do.
• We care about our brides and grooms.
• We care about our clients.

But most of all, we care about each other, the world at large, and making a difference.

That's why we've put a spotlight on Giving Back, and we'd love for you to join us in doing some good.

Wedding Food Donations

“CaliforniaWeddings often generate recyclable materials and leftover food that the bride and groom don’t want to take home.

An added benefit is that food donations are tax deductible for either you or the caterer.
