Support us at your wedding

By asking your guests to donate to Save the Children instead of giving a wedding gift, you could give families living in some of the world’s toughest places a reason to celebrate.

Support Save the Children on your wedding day

Instead of gifts, why not ask your guests to donate to help save children’s lives?

Hints and tips for creating your page

  • Include images and stories explaining why you've chosen to support Save the Children.
  • Decide on an overall fundraising target and add it to your page.
  • Add the link to your page to all your wedding invitations or emails, and add it to your 'thank you' messages, too.

Other ways to raise money

  • Speeches: Thank everyone who has helped raise money and tell them the total you’ve raised so far. Remind everyone else of your target and let them know it’s not too late to make a donation.
  • Wedding favours: Instead of traditional wedding favours, why not make a donation to Save the Children on behalf of each of your guests? We can supply badges or cards you can put on tables telling friends and family how the money will help. Please contact to request Wedding favours.
  • Sell any spares: If you get any duplicate gifts, you could consider selling them online and donating any money you make.

How your money helps


could pay for an essential baby kit which contains a bowl, nappies, towels, a wrap, soap and a snuggly, warm cap for a baby. This will help give newborns the best possible start in life.


could pay for a food basket which could help feed a family nutritious food for a month to help them cope in an emergency.


could pay for two goats which can give a family milk, meat, and an income. The adult goats will breed and the baby goats will fetch a good price at market, bringing in enough money to send the kids to school.
