Consider giving the gift of your wedding gown! Your donation can help a family or bride in need, while also giving your dress new life. And if that's not reason enough to gift your gown, donations are also tax deductible.
If you still have "Bridal Party Gifts" on your wedding to-do list, why not consider giving a gift that gives back? We list 9 Bridal Party Gifts That Keep On Giving (and that they'll actually want!). With this list, it'll be easy to find a gift your bridesmaids will love—even before they know the stories behind them.
Weddings often generate recyclable materials and leftover food that the bride and groom don’t want to take home. Nowadays, you and the caterer can feel good by donating the excess, and recycling plastic bottles, glass, metal and paper. An added benefit is that food donations are tax deductible for either you or the caterer.
When it comes to preserving Planet Earth, everyone wants to do the right thing. But when it comes to planning the Big Day, we worry that being environmentally correct will mean sacrificing our cherished wedding vision. Luckily, you no longer have to wrestle with your conscience to have a celebration that is both beautiful and "green."
