I think it’s normal. If you don’t have it and people do bring gifts, it can cause some confusion as to where to put them.

I think it’s normai. I’ve never been to a wedding without one.

I agree, I think it would be weird not to have one, b/c if someone brought a gift & didn’t have somewhere to put it, that would be quite awkward.

Totally normal. And another great opportunity for some more decor…Picture frames, DIY card box, etc.

Totally normal.  Like others said, people would be confused where to put things if you didn’t.

Absolutely normal! Where else would people put cards or gifts when they bring them?! Even if you have a gifts table it does not assume that you are expecting a gift at all. It’s not like you will have big, bright, neon lights sign pointing to it, right?

Normal 🙂

It is a nice chance to add some more decor like @flipflopbride said! I am having picture frames with both our parents wedding photos to add a tribute…:)

Normal!

I was just at a wedding with no gift table or card box.  People were having to track down MOH/MOB/groomsmen etc. to try to offload their gifts and cards!

Normal! People will want to drop off their gifts and want a designated place to do so!

Here in the midwest it’s normal. Guests are always looking around for the gift table so they don’t have to tote it around all night.

Ours is doing triple duty — gift table, card box and guest book.
