Use your wedding gift list to give a little something back and help your favourite charity on your big day.

Wedding gift lists have certainly changed in the last few decades. Not only are wedding registries now all online and done digitally, but you can register for awesome gifts such as quirky cushions, bespoke prints and even a candy floss machine if you fancy it. That said, gifts aren’t for everyone. You may have everything you desire and feel there isn’t a single extra thing you could possibly need. It happens. Dyson? Got it. KitchenAid? Had one for years. Cute photo frames? You’ve got 20.

Before you think that wedding gift lists aren’t for you, why not make them about someone else instead? Or at least a charity close to your heart. From well known charities such as British Heart Foundation and Cancer Research UK to smaller local charities supporting mental health, we’re here to offer you a huge range of choice of alternative gifts to celebrate your wedding day. At Prezola, you can create charity donations to one of the many charities listed on site, or to a bespoke charity that means something special. It won’t cost you a penny and we don’t take any of the contribution money.

How it works

Wedding charity donations are simple, if you’re looking for the best charity gifts, look no further. Much like a honeymoon fund, wedding guests visit your wedding gift list and pay for various charity donation denominations from as little as £10 all the way up to £1,000 if you wish. We’ll then transfer all the money into your bank account so you are in full control of the donation. You can choose from the hundreds of charities we list on site, or add a local charity close to your heart as a bespoke thoughtful gift. Just don’t forget to add details of your wedding gift list within your wedding invitations, or on your wedding website. 

Why we ask you to donate the money

This way, the charity can benefit further with GiftAid, which wouldn’t be received if a company makes the donation. It also gives you the warm fuzzy feeling of actually donating the money yourselves. Win win!

What else can you do to help with charity donations on your special day?

Well, it’s not just charity donation gifts, you can also help others by making charity donation wedding favours. Instead of opting for something that might just get left at your venue, consider a donation to your favourite charity on behalf of your guests. Then you can pop a simple card on each place setting, letting your guests know you’ve opted for a charity wedding favour. In our eyes, a totally thoughtful alternative to traditional wedding favours.
