Wedding Favours That Save Lives


Wedding favours are a waste of time. They can be one of those things that you stress about for ages. You’ll be trying to think of something personal to the two of you that your guests will also enjoy, but the fact of the matter is that most of them will just be left on tables at the end of the night.

So instead of wasting your money on something that’s going to garner nothing more than a cursory glance from your guests, why not do something for the people who could really do with your help? Enter Cancer Research UK’s charity wedding favours.

Suzanne Neville Favours

These favours are a subtle and thoughtful way to either remember loved ones who might have passed, or to celebrate those who are able to be with you thanks to the amazing work that Cancer Research do. In exchange for a suggested £2 donation, you will be able to choose from a range of pin badges and personalised favour cards to give to your guests. You can mix and match from their selection and there even have some created by high end bridal designers such as Jenny Packham, Suzanne Neville and Elizabeth Stuart.

The money raised through these wedding favours will support Cancer Research’s pioneering work into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. They are small keepsakes that will help make a big difference to the lives of many.

  1. Charity favours are such a lovely gesture, and you’re so right favours just get left on the tables, but charity favours will be remembered by your guests more so than a little box of sweets.

    My brother and his wife did this 4 their wedding in 2009. Our parents passed away at a young age, so they decided to honour/involve them by donating money 2 2 charities that r very close 2 our hearts. The British heart foundation for our mother and the MS society 4 our father. They had kept this a secret from me and my sisters. It was a wonderful touching surprise as we took our seats at their wedding reception and the pins made a lovely keepsake. Xxx love them so much!

    These are a perfect idea. My partner and I have already decided to do this for our wedding in august next year. It’s a very personal thing to both of us and so many others at our wedding. Neither of my parents will be at my wedding, as my dad passed away in 2010 and my mum passed away at the end of May this year, both to cancer. My soon to be mother-in-law was also diagnosed with cancer in 2010, but has been lucky to survive it. I hope the money we donate from the wedding and the charity runs we are doing will make a difference to others.
