    That is crazy talk! lol. 

    Your box is fine. You have to ask yourself, “Why would someone want to open it?” To read all of your guests letters? Who has the time to do that at the wedding? Plus you could have someone put the box in your car after people are done writing in it if you feel like you have a whole bunch of card reading perverts. LMAO!

    How big is your wedding? The only reason I can imagine you would need a secure box if it’s a large wedding including guests you’re not very close with (or mystery plus ones.)

    I definitely think it should be locked.  Have heard too many horror stories about employees at venues or dates of guests stealing cards/money/etc.  But even if it’s locked someone could still walk away with it so place it somewhere you can keep a good eye on it.

    You could cut your own slot with an exacto knife and he really wants it to lock, punch holes for an old brass lock or something. I think it’s great though!

    Yikes, I didn’t even get a card box.  =/

    ETA: Sorry, I kind of freaked out there for a minute!  I think the card box will be fine!  I know people prefer to have it next/near them during the wedding so I don’t think it’ll be a huge problem.

    I had a “card box” that was entirely open. It was essentially just a basket for people to lay their cards inside. I had about the same # of guests as you, and I knew mostly everybody. They left quite a bit of money, but nothing got taken.

    Assuming that your guests are respectable people and you trust your venue, I’d say the card box you chose is fine. If your Uncle Steve has a case of sticky fingers you should probably consider a lock… but if he did, you’d probably already know about it and wouldnt even have to ask :p
