So we’re getting married on SATURDAY – yep, 6 short days.
Up until last night FH was set on borrowing a bird cage from his work (A hotel – they have one they loan for weddings there, it’s not in use this weekend so we can borrow it) last night he decided he didn’t like that idea anymore. He also isn’t a fan of the stacked/wrapped boxes I’ve shown him. We need an idea NOW! I’m craft, I’m off all week, I can make something, I just need an idea – PLEASE show me pictures!
Thank you 🙂

I love the UP mailbox ones! Super cute and relatively easy I think!

We have some concerns about some family members who have sticky fingers, so we wanted something big, closed and that we could lock. I found a wooden chest at micheals, fi cut a hole inthe top and i completely covered it with an obnoxious amount of sparkles. Fi just has toput the latchand get a lock and its all set!

I think I recall your reception is at an art gallery. You could use an artist’s paint box on top of an easel and place a picture (?engagement pic) or a sign upright on the easel.

prettyinpink11: I love those too actually – I’d forgotten about them, I wonder if FH will go for that.
dv3849: I’m also a little worried about sticky fingers – not too much, our wedding is pretty small, but I still want to be cautious
julies1949: this is a neat idea, I’m just not so keen on them being so wide in the open.

MsGinkgo: You could use a locked wooden box. It would still give the impression of an artist’s box.

MsGinkgo: If you Fiance doesn’t go for the “UP” mailboxes ( as he may not see it going with your wedding) maybe he’d go for the mail boxes that some people can reuse for their own home- the same box as the “UP” just decorated differently (not sure where you live/what mail is like etc) but I love the idea of these. I wanted to make one for my wedding but I couldn’t find any in my area as they have all gone to community mail boxes/the ones that attach to the side of the home/mail boxes at the post office. This was my original reference:
