With your number of guests, maybe just a small basket?  It’s good to have a designated spot to put cards, so that they don’t get lost.

Def a cardbox, who wants to worry about cards at their own wedding? Plus it better be a huge purse.

Yeah, handling the cards yourself doesn’t sound like a good idea. You don’t need a big box, but a small $8 basket would be just fine.

I think people really like putting it in a cardbox, and no one will hand it to the bride (even with 40 guests, I’d assume she had something better to do!)

How about just use (or make out of cardboard) a mailbox so that people can have the satisfaction of dropping the card where it’s “supposed to go” (which is one of the first questions when a guest walks in the door “where does this card go?”) and you don’t have to be interrupted by guests over and over while they try to hand you cards.

Then you just pick up the mailbox and take it with you when you go!

To me, it seems better for your guests to have a designated spot where the cards and gifts should be placed.

I’m going to have a box or basket – just so they won’t get lost.  We’re having a pretty intimate wedding so I doubt they’re get stolen.

@janinaPK:  Pretty! Definitely think having a box is the way to go.
