I don’t think that’d be rude at all. As a guest, I probably wouldn’t even make the connection. When couples have birdcage card boxes, I don’t assume they’re saving to “build a nest” or something lol. I would probably just think it’s a cute card box.

I agree with deathbydesign!  I can’t see any reason why a guest would be offended by it and I think it could come out really cute!!

I don’t think it’s rude either. Pretty much every wedding I’ve ever seen has had a card box, and I think a house-shaped one would be meaningful and cute.

I think that unless you put up a big sign saying “Thank you for your well wishes & donation to build our happy home!” or something like that, people wouldn’t even realize WHY it was a house. (In other words, no, I don’t think people would be offended at all. Even if you did put up a sign like that, I think only a few people would be offended — from what you said most of your guests know you want monetary gifts, so really it’s fair game.)

I think its actually a nice gesture. As a guest that gave money I would like knowing that its where my money is going. You’re not asking for cash but just showing those that bring cash what you are planning on doing with it.

I think most guests are more acceptable of providing monetary gifts nowadays and it is very common in California to give gift card or cash in lieu of gifts that people don’t want/need!

House box is a cute idea, i would think it’s funny/cute/unique if i see a house-box instead of a “regular box”
