Fall weddings turn a shade of green

More couples than ever before are choosing to give, rather than receive “green” to honor their special day and the love they share. Trendy and eco-chic, charitable donations are a unique and meaningful alternatives to traditional gifts. Couples are choosing to:

1. Register online for charitable gifts

2. Give personalized charitable gift certificates to their wedding party

3. Make charitable donations their wedding favors to thank guests.

For Catherine E. and Tom B. of Oakland, California, “charity gifts set the right tone” for starting their life together. Other couples want to honor a family member or give to a cause close to their hearts. Some choose charity because they “already have too much stuff.”

In the last year, JustGive.org experienced a 50 percent increase in the number of couples making charitable giving a part of their wedding. Since launching the Wedding Gift Center service five years ago, JustGive couples have contributed more than $1.1 million to charitable organizations.
