OMG I am so sorry, that is just so wrong! I read about this happening to someone else prior to our wedding so I assigned someone to take the box immediately after the ceremony and put it in their car. How awful. 🙁

Things like this really make me lose faith in humanity.  I’m so sorry this happened to you.

@Devyah924:  So sorry this happened to you.  This is exactly why I made my cardbox the way I did, the only way to get cards out of it was to rip it apart.

I am so sorry this happened to you!

I was AMAZED at how many people put cash in their cards they gave to us. We had over $2K in cash in our card box. From now on I will always write a check if I give money to a couple on their wedding day. At least that ensures that if the card does get stolen, the theif can’t get my money.

I just can’t believe people would do that!

This is exactly why our card box can be locked.

Wow, i am so sorry to hear this 🙁 People really do suck! It’s unbelievable that someone, and presumably someone you may know, could have the balls to steal gifts given to you as a couple. How horrible 🙁

Holey crap. How terrible. I’m really sorry to hear that. Maybe it was one of the staff members?

Our box was put into a safe at our hall. It’s their policy that 2 staff members (including one manager) and someone from the wedding watches the box get put in. Only the manager has the code so, it would be clear who opened it if anything was missing. Thay have to do that for just this type of situation.

I’m so sorry this happened. 🙁

I’m so sorry.  That is disgusting!  I can’t believe someone could think of doing that at all, let alone at someone’s wedding.  Personally, I would bring it up with the venue.  Not in an accusatory way, but more of an FYI for them.  Maybe it was a staff member who did it – the venue should at least be aware and be on the lookout at future weddings.
