We all know by know that most couples have picked the ‘try before you buy’ method and lived together prior to marriage and thus have all their household items and even if they haven’t, that’s two households to combine! So why give them even more stuff? The Alternative Wedding List is one of those great registries that have sprung up through couples desires to give something back to the community.
Here, couples can register for donations to charities that include Barnardos, Marie Curie Cancer Care, PDSA, War on Want and so many more worthy causes. For ideas of how far your donation will go, think £50 equals a breast cancer victim receiving a free prosthetic fitting or £40 provides any one of these – education for a Mumbai woman or child, a months supply of anti-retroviral drugs, a beehive for a school or a special day out for a child carer.
