Being a “buy gifts in advance and ship them to the couple” sort of person, I’ve never deposited anything in a card box at a wedding, so I’ve never really noticed them. It obviously goes on a table (duh), but which one? The escort card table? The cake table? Its very own table? Help.

We’re having one rectangular table with guestbook and cardbox.

Our card box will be in the middle of our gift table.

It will depend on your set-up (i.e. how big your tables are), but I have seen the card box on the guestbook table and the gift table (if you have one) at most weddings I have been to. It could also go on the escort table (though I have usually seen the escort cards on one side of the guestbook table, which was big enough to accommodate both). I would not put it on the cake table personally.

We had ours on a seperate square table that also allowed space for any gifts (if anyone brought them).

In theory, the question never arises, because guests are supposed to have gifts delivered to the couple’s home instead of bringing them to the reception. However, they always bring them to the reception, in spite of the rule. So, you need to have a gift table, and you just put the card box on that.

We actually aren’t having a gift table or card box. I have actually never seen a card box at a wedding! Technically (etiquette wise) you are not supposed to ask for gifts or even expect them and a card box (even though some people will put cards with no money) is sort of an expectation of a gift (money). I am used to it where the couple would just hand over the card/gift to another member of the family who would then deal with it.

Just make a gift table and tuck it on a side of the room not close to the door.
