Wedmin genius alert! If you've been wrangling with the traditional favour dilemmas ('What to give?' 'How much to spend?' 'AS IF I've got time to make 100 jars of jam!'), then why not use your table-gift budget to support a great cause instead?

British Heart Foundation

With the huge variety of charities offering favour options right now, and prices starting from just £1, it's never been easier to support a cause that's close to your heart - whether it's fighting disease, caring for animals or making children's dreams come true.

Sign up with the charity of your choice and you'll receive small gifts for your tables, or place cards that explain your donation - meaning it won't just be the Prosecco that gives your guests a warm glow.
