What is everyone using to collect their cards at their weddings? I know of the typical birdcage idea but I also came across those glass wedding boxes that are engravable. On the wedding day it serves as a card holder and afterwards, the brides bouquet can be displayed in it. I am not sure if I will get one like this but am considering it.
Here is an example:
I also know of brides that order the cake/card holders which are also a nice touch.
SHOW me/TELL me your ideas of what you will be using and where you got them (are getting them) from!

This is what we bought. It’s really cute and it ties into the colors we’re using (purples and a lil bit of silver). It was like $30 and my Bridesmaid or Best Man is going to use it for her October wedding, so its recyclable 🙂
I really like the one you posted though! So nice. Is it expensive?

No problem! I got it from http://www.exclusivelyweddings.com. I think it was $30, I could be off by like $5-10. I actually checked to make sure they still have it, of course they don’t. But, if you google “money holder for weddings” and go to the shopping link, there are a bunch of other websites that have it. And they’re all in the $30-$40 range.

They have a similar one for sale at AC Moore in the wedding section

Here’s mine. I made it. I used 3 picture boxes. Wrapping paper, left over organdy, left over organza, left over tulle, strings of pearl beads, ribbon and lots of glue! I thought it turned out pretty well!

For my card holder, I found this at Hobby Lobby on clearance for like $10 I think and then added my ribbon and leaves. I was so excited to find something a little different than the norm! Picture isn’t the best, all I could find right now!
