Unique wedding favours that make a difference

Marriage is the ultimate bond and declaration of love; the day that you get to stand up in front of your family and friends to join with the person who makes you feel happier and more alive than anyone else in the world, so you’ll want to make sure that your day is as special as your love for each other.

Wedding favours are your chance to bring a sense of fun to the table dressing and they can be touching keepsakes treasured for years to come. Your Charity Lottery offer a range of unique wedding favours in support of Dove House Hospice which will give you the opportunity to share your luck in love with your guests or be a reminder of your beautiful day, years down the line.

Beautiful bride, Caroline, opted to use Dove House wedding favours on her big day, saying:

“We decided to buy the ‘Lucky in love’ scratch cards to use as wedding favours after meeting a lovely lady at a wedding fayre. We wanted to donate to a local charity that does such amazing work. One of my close friends sadly lost her dad at Dove House Hospice and couldn't praise the staff more highly.

After deciding on Dove House, both mine and my fiance's mothers were diagnosed with cancer in the run-up to the wedding, just months apart from each other. The day after our first wedding anniversary, my lovely mum passed away in Dove House after a 14-month battle. I spent the day at my mum's bedside, as I did every day in the six weeks that she was there, and saw first-hand the amazing work that everyone at Dove House does. I decided to become a volunteer to say thank you.

The huge impact that Dove House has had on our family confirmed to us that supporting them by buying their wedding favours was the right decision. I found the whole process very easy - we bought envelopes to match our colour scheme and decorated them with a label to let our guests know we had made a contribution on their behalf. Our guests loved that we had given to charity. Friends and family have lost loved ones to cancer, so thought it was lovely that we were able to support a local charity in this way instead of traditional table favours.”

Another Bride who chose to use the ‘Lucky in love’ scratch cards was Rachel:

“I purchased them as my favours because rather than get people sweets or something similar, I thought it was great to give people the chance to win some money. It was also nice to know that I was contributing to a local charity, and honouring the memory of my Dad, who spent time in his local hospice last year. I put the scratch cards in colour-coordinated envelopes along with a penny and they looked amazing. The designs were great, with both male and female options”
