We had an open mailbox sitting on our gift table and I’m 100% sure that nothing got stolen from it. I don’t honestly know that I wold be that worried about it.

Ribbons are a good idea, or assign someone to watch the birdcage, (just not a bird)

Two words: electric fence.

Just kidding!  What about weaving some kind of tulle through the lower half of the cage?

Do you think there actually might be someone who would steal from you? At your own wedding??

If so, don’t invite them!! Wow, seriously, I have never heard of that.

Seriously though, just buy a cage that has the wire close enough together to only allow paper and cards through, and wire the lid/doors shut.

Or one like this, that has mesh over the bottom. Still lovely but no one could nick your cards out of this.

I like something like @BerryBerry: posted, or taking a cage you like and using a thin mesh wire on the inside.


@BerryBerry:  Not so much the guests of the B/G stealing cards (but you never know what someone’s +1 is like), but shady hotel staff or even just other guests or outside people wandering by and grabbing them. You never know anymore :-/ That’s why it’s recommended to set up your card and gift tables inside of your reception venue, not out near the entrance.

@zippylef:  That is awesome.


To be honest if you are really that concerned perhaps rather than altering your final choice you should have someone keep an eye on the cards and/or put it in a very public place. If someone really wants to steal your cards/gifts they will regardless of the container.
