how about you pass the mailbox around and ask your guests to write something about you that they would like to share with everyone.

or funny stories…

Pen holder!  Haha, I’m sorry I’m stumped.  Can you take a picture of it?  I bet it’s super cute!

have people write "marriage advice" on little cards and stick them in it?  Maybe after they sign the guest book?  or have the blank cards with instructions to place them into the box at each seat?  It would be fun reading the messages.

Or could it hold your programs?

My parents went to a wedding where all the guests were given postcards to write marriage advice.  Each table was assigned a month, and someone collected all the postcards and is going to mail them to the couple during the assigned month, for an entire year after their wedding.  My parents got some fall month, so they wrote about coming together with family for the holidays, etc.  You could do something along those lines?

I really like Grey56’s idea!  Plus, you can look forward to a whole year’s worth of well wishes and advice… :o)

My other answer is, "when in doubt, put flowers in it!"  That’s what we did with the basket of a bicycle that I’d purchased to use at our reception, but never figured out exactly what to do with it.  Flowers are always sweet, especially in unconventional containers.

I would ditch the card box you have right now and use the mailbox.
