Support the wedding industry and make a generous donation? You can do both with charitable favours and gift ideas.
Your wedding day is a day to celebrate. Packed with love and laughter, it’s a day to gather family and friends to mark your marriage.
Days filled with emotion, sentiment and loved ones often make us think of the causes closest to our hearts. There may have been tough times in your lives, loved ones who are no longer with you, or moments that have defined your relationship. It’s natural, therefore, that many brides and grooms take the opportunity to give something back.
Therefore, our Top Tip this Tuesday is all about the charity donation – and we’re found the perfect way that you can give back in style.
Here at The Wedding Affair and WeddingHour, we’re dedicated to providing advice, exposure and marketing opportunities for the finest in the wedding industry to grow and reach the widest number of engaged couples possible. However, we do, of course, have a passion for supporting charities and giving something back to the most worthwhile of causes, such as our incredible, local charity: Martin House Children’s Hospice. (Take a look at their listing on The Wedding Affair Approved Supplier List to find out about the wonderful work that they do.)
Therefore, when Rachel Harrington from The Charity Candle Company got in touch with us on #WeddingHour (9-10pm every Wednesday evening, and dedicated to connecting the wedding community worldwide), we were excited to discover luxurious, hand-made wedding ideas that support a wealth of charities.
The Charity Candle Company was born from a wealth of third-sector experience and a passion for raising money for charities.
Their goal is simple: provide beautifully-scented, hand-poured candles that make gorgeous favours for wedding guests, whilst allowing you to support a charity of your choice. Each jar can be completely personalised, and tied with a ribbon that matches your colour scheme. They come with a small card, personalised with your names, wedding date and short message for guests to let them know your charity of choice.
You can choose from one of these incredible charities, each carrying out exceptional work: Dogs Trust, Teenage Cancer Trust, The Royal British Legion, and East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.
The candles make truly elegant favours, sitting pretty at the place of each guest around your reception table. Available in a range of sizes, they also provide a classic, elegant gift for bridesmaids, mothers, or as a way to say ‘thank you’ to other members of the wedding party.
Worried that this might be too feminine for your male guests? The Charity Candle Company produces a SandalWood-scented ‘male’ version, with accompanying moustache!
The Charity Candle Company hand-pour each candle at their office in Suffolk. They’re dedicated to providing premium quality products with beautiful – natural – scents. Made using essential oils and natural soy wax, the scent is pronounced yet not overbearing.
“The Lemon and Lime is our favourite!” Rachel told us, and we have to agree: it smells good enough to eat! The range also include Spiced Orange and Cotton Fresh.
