Wedding couples asked to have a heart

‘Wear your heart on your sleeve’ is the message from the Irish Heart Foundation, as couples everywhere get ready to walk up the aisle for the summer wedding season.

‘Wear your heart on your sleeve’ is the message from the Irish Heart Foundation, as couples everywhere get ready to walk up the aisle for the summer wedding season.

The national charity fighting heart disease and stroke is urging brides and grooms to show their hearts are in the right place by choosing wedding favours which celebrate life and spread hope to broken hearts everywhere.

In lieu of traditional wedding favours, couples can make a donation to help the Irish Heart Foundation continue its vital work towards saving some of the 10,000 people that lose their lives to heart disease every year in Ireland. Couples can share their kindness with a special memento of their wedding day for guests by choosing from a selection of romantic satin hearts, red band scrolls or cards to say they have made a big hearted donation. .

In tough economic times, a heartfelt wedding favour donation will not only impress guests but provides a symbol of hope for future generations to come. Rosarii Ryan, wedding fundraiser with the Irish Heart Foundation says: “If you decide to choose wedding favours for your special day, we can offer a subtle but respectful way of remembering someone who cannot be with you, or to celebrate life, health and happiness.

“We know how special and unique your wedding day is and we like to handle all requests individually. We have items to suit all tastes and budgets, from parchment scrolls to business cards or tent cards – each will be elegantly designed and personalised to announce that your donation has helped keep more hearts beating. We also have small keepsakes, including keyrings and satin hearts.

“There is probably no other day in your life that you will pay so much attention to and we can help you make it perfect.”
