Seriously… who needs another bag of Jordan almonds?
In lieu of the traditional wedding favor, brides and grooms can now consider American Cancer Society wedding scrolls. For a small donation, a beautiful scroll is placed at each guest’s seat or a tent card at each table acknowledging that a financial contribution has been made to the fight against cancer.
The wedding favor is a time honored tradition; yet, many favors amount to nothing more than kitsch in the back of your closet or a snack for the ride home. An American Cancer Society wedding scroll or tent card is a personal and meaningful alternative.
Scrolls may be in memory of someone you’ve lost to cancer, in honor of a survivor, or a general dedication to the fight against this disease. Text is customizable and presented on the customer’s choice of paper with either gold or silver-tone rings. Each scroll is elegant and designed to reflect the personal style of the bride and groom.
Cintia and Bernard Alvarez had this to say about Wedding Scrolls: “At our wedding, we were able to thank everyone…and we felt the Wedding Scrolls fit us perfectly. Our guests loved them – it was thoughtful and meaningful.”
Since launching the Wedding Scrolls program in 2010, the Society has raised nearly $100,000 for the fight against cancer. The program has gained interest in the past year, with many couples opting for a toned-down and tasteful wedding in response to the current economic climate.
“With so many people out there struggling, couples are finding it tacky to spend money on almonds and candles just for the sake of having a favor,” said Katarina Madej, communication and marketing director for the American Cancer Society of NY & NJ. “An American Cancer Society Wedding Scroll is a truly tasteful gift for your guests. The $3 donation per scroll funds cancer research and patient service programs supported by the American Cancer Society. It’s a meaningful, and possibly lifesaving, alternative to the traditional favor.”
