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.
Not only do we care about each other, but also 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.

Want YOUR Wedding To Give Back? Start Here:
There are thousands of details (and dollars) that go into hosting a wedding. But luckily, there are just as many opportunities to give back! We list 10 Ways To Have A Charitable Wedding, ensuring your wedding investment will have a far-reaching impact.
After the festivities are over, what’s the plan for your wedding flowers? Sure, you can always encourage your guests to take the centerpieces home, but you’ll probably be left with more flowers than you know what to do with. Instead of throwing those pretty petals into the trash, why not make the generous choice to donate them to a great cause?
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."
