@AndysCraftsNmore:  You could just get a safe.  Walmart and office stores sell them.

Decorate it and you can reuse it after the wedding.

How large is large?  I would think a skull would be easy to carry out.

@AndysCraftsNmore:  I would do both. Make it large that someone will notice and maybe add some weight so it’s hard to carry.  But I think if someone was going to steal something they would just take it out of the box…

 Or possibly put someone in charge of watching it.  Like if there is a table close to it, have a designated person sit at that table so the box is always in their site.


Another option is to maybe hot glue it to the table cloth and have other things on the table as well.  That way if someone tried to take the box they’d be pulling the table cloth too.  It’d forsure catch attention of everyone if someone were to take it.


There’s no theifs in my family or anything, but I wouldn’t care if my family /friends were saints… I’m still protecting my card box like it no other lol.

Ooh, you could use the cupcakes as additional defenses. Like make a big coffin, cut a card slot in the skinny end and put a bunch of cupcakes on the fat end! And I’d get a really cool big lock!

We got a wooden chest and I knocked a board out of the top and locked it shut so there was no way to get it open.  It was pretty big, but if I knew there was a theif at the wedding I’d have drilled a hole in the bottom to run a cable through and attach it to the table.  

Edit: if you have a coffin, you can get those little metal hinge things that you can screw in to keep the lid shut….  hopefully she won’t bring a screwdriver set, lol.
