I think a basket sounds perfect. Easy, small, and non-obtrusive.

I would definitely provide some sort of cardbox- just for security’s sake. There will be people who bring cards. They may or may not contain cheques or gift cards.,

I would go so far as to put a couple of wedding style envelopes in the box so it didn’t look lonely or unused. That way you also don’t have to label it “Card Box””. It’s purpose will be apparent to your guests.

I agree you should have something.  Many people will probably at least bring a card.

I like the idea of a basket, it keeps them organized that way.

Card box. I have NEVER been to a wedding that did not have one and I have a huge family and have attended countless weddings.

If it’s a destination wedding then they have something or they don’t, either way best to be prepared many ppl will want to give something.


Never heard anyone being put off or offended by a card box. They’re par for the course with weddings 🙂

We had a large, clear glass cylinder vase (with a wide satin ribbon tied around it) for our cards.  It was really pretty and modern, and definitely unobtrusive.  Whether you’re expecting gifts or not, you’ll definitley get cards from people, so I’d make sure to have somewhere to put them.
