Nope it’s normally not sealed. Mine is just a bird cage with slots to stick cards through but the whole top can open so I can get the cards out later.

Michaels sells a bird cage.

@Zusie: mine is below. open suitcase… I just figured that we will watch it and take it away before dinner… I didnt want something like a fake present or cake.

I think the only concept is that there is a place for guest to put a card and it keeps them all contained to one spot so they dont get misplaced… it could be anything even just a regular basket… and your not required to have one… you can go simple or go big its all up to you!

We covered a shoe box with wrapping paper and stuck it close to the bar so that people could keep an eye on it. We figured that way at least we’d notice if someone unwrapped it!

I have seen so many different kinds of card boxes. They just need to be your style. I am more comfortable with something closed that way I know that nobody at the venue waitstaff etc can get ahold of anything. I went for the giant cake looking thing. Its just big and elaborate like me lol

We just ordered a cheap one off of ebay one that folds so we can pack it to take to our destination wedding. Doesnt have to be super fancy at all as long as it does the trick.

Mine is open but I am having a reception in my church fellowship hall where the likelyhood of anyone being there who would take anything is LOW. We have well behaved family and friends. It can be whatever you want it to be really. If it makes you feel better to be closed, then do it that way. Just make sure whatever it is is big enough to actually hold those giant cards they sell for weddings.
