    We received a memory box from one guest and saved them all there. Once in a while we will take them out and walk down memory lane. (Not that anyone besides close family wrote anything too special, but it’s fun to do anyway!)

    We are keeping ours. I have a memory box that is shaped like a book. We will keep it on the coffee table. The box includes the cards, CDs of our epictures, wedding pictures, video that I made, and our wedding music. It also has our wedding program, menu, ring box, cracker favor, and guest book in it.

    I must preface this with a disclaimer: I love cards, I have saved every card I have received for years.  I band them together with elastics and then save them in an Ikea storage bin. 

    For our engagement and shower #1 (shower #2 is in September and wedding is in November) I have saved the cards and have a nice box to keep them in.

    I would only save them if they mean anything to you….we have already taken our engagement cards out to read over them (well, it was me, but anyways…) and it’s a great way to feel better about things when you need the boost 🙂

    I put them into my “Happy Box”. It’s a box filled with random stuff–birthday cards, letters, some pictures, ticket stubs–anything that has a good memory associated with it. So when I’m feeling down, or just want a pick-me-up, I reach in and pull out a couple things to look at, and think about the happy memory. It’s terribly unorganized, and may just be my justification for never being able to throw out anything that has any sort of sentimental value, but it always works for me.

    I’m keeping mine for the time being, I vaguely remember a bee finding a place that would bind them into a book which I think is a really cool idea.

    my mom made an album with all her wedding cards.  nothing extravagant–just a scrapbook with each card glued in.  they mostly sit in a closet, but i did pull them out from time to time when i was little.

    she did this with all my first birthday cards too.

    I don’t have wedding cards because I haven’t gotten married yet, but I do have all of the cards from my Highschool and College graduations. A fews months ago I read all of them and I was really happy that I kept them. I just kept them in a storage container.

    It might be sweet if you two read them on your first anniversary.

    @Baileyh: Thats the link I remember! I wonder if I could stitch them together rather than glue them…. the glue is kinda scary.

    We’re the “keep the memory, toss the thing” kind of people, so…. we threw ours out.

    I put my wedding cards in a photo box which originally housed our toasting flutes. Also in the box are our response cards, some pics, and other wedding stuff. It’s my little wedding box. I couldn’t part with the cards.

    I still have them, I want to incorporate them either into a box (love Noritake’s idea!) or an album of some sort…
