    @Barbiestylez:  I love the gold birdcage!!


    We’re going with a birdcage card holder as well. We don’t know why we gravitated to it, but we love it. It isn’t assembled yet, so I can’t show a picture. But we got our invitation lady to make a larger version of the front of our invitation to put as the sign instead of “cards”. It has our names, the wedding date on white cardstock with a navy blue cardstock piece behind it and the sash around it will be navy blue

    Here’s our inspiration, but clearly the colours are different.

    Birdcage Wedding Card Holder / Vintage Style Birdcage Cardholder. $40.00, via Etsy.

    @Barbiestylez:  would match beautifully!!

    That’s understandable. I am having my Maid/Matron of Honor (my sister) and one of my Bridesmaid (best friend), to be beside the birdcage during the receiving line, so they will be keeping an eye on this. After  we’ve finished the receiving line, we’ll then move the cards into the safe in the birdal suite for safe keepings.

    We’re doing a big lantern which is similar to the birdcage idea – the gold birdcage is gorgeous!

    I had a card box because I was worried about security, too. I used a birdcage for advice cards instead (“Words of Wisdom for the Bride and Groom”).

    I tried to make a card box like the second picture you posted and it… didn’t turn out well at all. I looked around for bird cages but couldn’t find anything that I felt really fit with our wedding so I made this:

    I love your inspiration picture for the bird cage. I think as long as it’s big enough for the card to lay flat on the bottom (so that they fall flat and don’t poke out the side) you should be fine. If they’re not poking out the sides I think it would be more difficult to reach in and pull one out. Also, if you have it within view of the sweetheart table (like you suggested) then you’ll be able to keep an eye on it and you’ll probably notice any suspicious activity.

    Out of the pictures you posted, I think I slightly prefer the birdcage one. They’re both gorgeous though. I originally wanted to do a birdcage one, but like the ones I really liked on Etsy and such were quite expensive, so I just got some hat boxes and made one. I already had the lace and pearls left over from making my centerpieces and I found the burlap flowers at Michael’s in the scrapbooking section. I just left the natural color showing because I think it will look nice with our color scheme at the wedding.
