Why not seal the box so that you have to disassemble it to get into it?

hmmmmmmmmmmmmm………….I havent been to many weddings but I have never heard of this happening.. But I guess it does! Maybe you should be aware of wedding crashers?? What if you do as the PP said.. and after all the guests have arrived.. put a Bridesmaid or Best Man in charge of locking it in a safe place

My husband was on board with the whole lock thing.  We hot glued ours shut so if someone wanted to steal something they would have to had taken the whole darn box with them.  Make your beautiful card box.  I loved mine and was very proud of how different it was.  Just hot glue the boxes together.

What we did was have the coordinator (or a trusted relative) empty it often. For the most part it really only needs to be emptied at the beginning a few times. And then when everyone arrives empty it for the final time. Any straggler cards will still have a place to go, but the majority of them will be safely away when people stop mingling around the box and when its most unsecure.

At a recent wedding I was DOC for I periodically emptied the card box and put them in a safe place for the couple.  That way their pretty box stayed out, but there was nothing in there to steal.  No one had any idea it was empty 🙂

Our card box is just all sealed up and the only way we can get the cards out is to destroy it!  I used to work at a hotel as a catering manager, and we always had to take the cards away after everyone filled the boxes because we were more worried about our own staff members stealing them than the guests of the wedding.  Such a shame.  I really don’t think that it happens often.

We are having relatives take turns watching the card box – gifts table. They will help direct people and keep an eye on it.

@lefeymw: and @bridget.sutter: that is an excellent idea to empty the box periodically!
