This is one trend that I am thrilled to see. Have you been to a wedding in which the couple has given the opportunity for guests to donate to their favorite charity in lieu of a wedding gift? I just attending a wedding where this was the case. In the invite, the couple expressed how thrilled they were to have just my company attend the wedding and gifts were not necessary. However, if you would like to get the couple a gift, instead please donate to local nonprofit. I think this is amazing! With the amount of events that take place in this world, if a fraction of them would encourage giving and community involvement, this world would be a much better place!
