PumpkinMuffin:  I made a super inexpensive cardbox using cardboard boxes and wrapping paper.  I made it large enough to be noticable (a small, lockable box could still go missing), but in order to get the cards out it literally had to be ripped apart.  You may also want to consider putting a family member you trust in charge of keeping tabs on the cardbox.  Here’s a pic

I may be the only one but I was never worried about my cards getting stolen. DH and I made sure to only invite people we loved and trusted. I couldn’t imagine anyone that came to our reception stealing anything!

PumpkinMuffin:  I can’t believe people take other peoples wedding cards… so disrespectful.

I like this box, it does have a rustic feel, but you can make it more modern, I just like the large box with the pictures on the sides.

This would be a good option too, your colours and it would hold a lot of letters.

I think you may have to do the DIY route, but that way it’ll be personal and big enough. 🙂

MrsShane:  That’s what I was thinking too, I like to believe if someone was to steal a wedding gift it would have been one of the peple working the event, and NOT one of the guests. Ugh, it’s just disgusting.

winterwoodlandbride15:  I didn’t even think about people working the reception. That’s actually a really good point!

PumpkinMuffin:  The boxes in the link weren’t mine, but it came out pretty similar!

As for cards getting stolen, our venue was at a hotel so we were able to put the cards in a safety deposit box shortly before the dinner started. The box was at the entrance, so people put them in as they were entering. Once dinner started, everyone should have been there already so my DH snuck out to take it to the front desk. 

I would suggest locking it in a room or somewhere safe once the reception starts.

I don’t have a picture of it, but my decorator showed us a card box that would be perfect for you (I think). It’s all mirrored with removable hanging rhinestones. Very pretty and very modern. It was actually way too big and way too heavy for us so we asked to rent a smaller one, but it sounds like what you’re looking for. I can ask her where she got it if you want. Maybe Google mirrored boxes?

PumpkinMuffin:  You said your wedding is the complete opposite of rustic- can you elaborate on that? You don’t have to stick to something labelled “cardbox” You can use anything that is capable of being locked.

a ballot box

a suggestion box

steel suggestion box

entry box for contests or raffles

ballot box
