Canadian Cancer Society Wedding Celebration Program

Make your wedding a lasting celebration

The Canadian Cancer Society Wedding Celebration Program is a way for couples to mark their special day while bringing hope to people touched by cancer. When you choose to donate to the Canadian Cancer Society, you and your guests support life saving research, patient and survivor support programs, and so much more.

We offer the following programs to support couples in the celebration of their engagement and marriage:

  • In lieu of wedding favours: For a donation, we can provide you with gift cards, place cards, bookmarks, celebration boxes, as well as, reception certificates. 
  • In lieu of wedding gifts: To inform your guests that you encourage donations to the Canadian Cancer Society in lieu of gifts, we offer donation request cards to place in your invitations. After the wedding, we also offer thank you cards to send to your guests.
  • Create a wedding page: Celebrate your engagement and every precious moment leading up to the big day by creating your own wedding page online. Send updates, post photo albums of all your special moments, and provide a destination for friends, family and invited guests to make a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society in honour of your wedding.

Note: For gift card, place card and reception certificate donations, income tax receipts can be issued. Bookmarks and thank you cards are not eligible for an income tax receipt.

For more information, please refer to our frequently asked questions page or contact your 1 800 268-8874 ext. 7080, e-mail

We look forward to helping you give your day that extra-special touch.
