Charity Wedding Favour Ideas to Help Make the World Better

Charity Badges

These little wearable favours are perfect for popping at each place setting for your guests and many charities offer a large range of different designs. Cancer Research UK has loads of badges, with a style to suit your wedding theme or your personality! Guests can wear these little pins with pride for the rest of the wedding night and beyond.

Biodegradable Confetti

Some charities actually have their own confetti favours which is ideal for weddings which are taking place across two venues - after all, who doesn’t want those fun confetti photographs to add to the wedding album?


These make great favours, especially if your guest list includes children - a little bottle of bubbles. With a variety of bottle designs available from multiple charities, you can enjoy feeling like a kid again and maybe even capture some cute photos amongst the bubbles!

Lottery Cards

Bluebell Wood has little “Lucky in Love” lottery favours which give each guest a chance to win £1,000 in the B.W weekly lottery - now what a wedding favour that could be!

Invest in the Earth

Donate to charity AND invest in the environment, helping the earth we live on by popping a packet of seeds on each place setting. Find a variety of charity seeds at Wildflower Favours, all of which have super cute packaging so will look great at your wedding guest tables.

The Chance to Donate

Many charities provide envelopes which can be used as wedding favours - your guests can put in their own donations (if they wish) and post the envelope in your wedding post box which can then be donated on their behalf.
