    @StL.Ashley:  What is your “theme,” if you have one?

    I agree with PP, knowing your theme would help us find something that can work for you!

    We used a box like this but with our names, wedding date, and painted in our colors (minus the cards banner).

    People just tossed ours on the gift table! But we also had a very small wedding, so someone standing by the card table would have been REALLY suspicious!

    We just used a simple white birdcage I got from Michael’s for like $15.  Originally I wanted to make a wooden birdhouse, but in the end it became one of those diy projects we didn’t have time for and didn’t have too much meaning so not enough motivation to get it finished.

    Well, shit. I haven’t thought about this detail yet, and I have less than three weeks to go! Haha. Thanks to this thread for reminding me.

    I like the clear glass box idea. Could look cool to see them all in there.

    We did a simple white birdcage.  You could actually get one that looks pretty modern, in keeping with the inspiration board you put up–maybe like this without the bow on top? IMO, birdcages are ideal because 1)they don’t look cheap 2) you can see what’s in them so you don’t have to explain it 3) they usually flip open at the top for easy use
