#4. Sweet charity

Feeling altruistic? Want your wedding to have a feel-good factor? Forego the gifts and encourage your guests to donate to a charity of your choice. Support vital research with an established organisation like the National Breast Cancer Foundation, or register with sites like Karma Currency, MyCause or Everyday Hero, which connect gift-giving occasions with worthy charities. You and your guests will feel warm and fuzzy knowing you’ve contributed to helping protect the rainforest or save endangered animals, to name but two ideas that are way better than a toaster.
