Discover a different type of gift to add to your wedding gift list, courtesy of the Woodland Trust.
1. Create a tangible memory of your big day
Alongside the photos and videos from your wedding day, a dedication adds to the collection of hard copy memories. Flourishing in tandem with your married life, couples can opt for a dedicated woodland area – from a quarter acre to an acre and dedicated bench, or a single tree to mark their love.
2. Do your bit for the environment
Whether you’re nature loving or not, a Woodland Dedication offers couples the chance to do their bit for the environment. Counteracting deforestation, encouraging wildlife and intercepting CO2 emissions, a dedication from the Woodland Trust will serve to promote a greener world.
3. Memories for future generations
Providing a tranquil setting in which to reflect, future generations will be able to visit the place which holds a special meaning for their family. Families and friends can visit the Woodland Trust site for years to come, offering the perfect place for a picnic or playground while resurrecting the memories that they hold dear.
4. A more meaningful gift from your guests
Your guests will delight in the sentimentality of a dedication from the Woodland Trust. Unique, imaginative and meaningful, a dedication offers a point of difference to the usual gift list donations.
5. Free and accessible places to visit
The woods in which your dedication will grow are free to visit at any time, all year round. Offering easy access for those who wish to visit their dedication, the woodlands provide a sanctuary of calm and the perfect place to remember your special day.
