It is a place to keep them organized and also shows guests where to place their gifts. It saves guests from awkwardly wondering where or whom to give their envelope to.

I do think it’s necessary.  Where else would the guest put the cards and money?  YOu don’t want them wandering around the wedding wondering who to give the card to and then running the risk of having missing cards.

My card box cost me maybe $9.  I bought a large plain wood jewelry box and then decorated it for cheap.

i second what Canadian Mermaid said. but i also dont think they are necessary. i am sure you could have a table set up with a sign or something, or maybe where the guest book is leave a space and people will catch on.  thats what happened at my wedding simply because i was not expecting cards – i didnt plan for it, so people just left them on the guestbook table.

There’s lots of choices, but yes, I think ‘something’ is necessary. In the old days, brides carried a ‘money bag’ around table to table, and people handed them their cards. I haven’t seen anyone do that for a number of years, but I always see some kind of container for the cards. You don’t want them left randomly on their tables so anyone with sticky fingers walks off with them, and dropping them in front of where you’re sitting will also be awkward.

I think it is important to have a place to put the cards and to keep them all together. I got a bird cage at hobby lobby in the clearance area and my Fiance spray painted it white (it was a nasty green color). After the wedding we are gonna save it for our future daughter’s room (hopefully we have one). Her room is love bird themed, so we will decorate the bird cage with a nest and stuff with flowers and a fake bird inside and hang it in the room somewhere.
