13 Creative Ways to Collect Cards at Your Wedding
Once you’ve got your non-traditional guest book and escort cards ready to go, a creative card box is next up on your list of wedding-reception musts. More than just a simple spot to gather guests’ well-wishes, a card box is a lovely decor piece and one of the first things friends will see when they arrive. If you like to think outside the box (and we know you do), these 13 ideas are sure to kickstart your imagination and help you collect all of those special cards in style.
3. British Letter Box: Even a full four years later, memories of Will and Kate’s epic royal wedding can still make us swoon. Channel a regal vibe yourself by displaying a miniature British letter box on top of the gift table. (via Liam Smith Photography)
5. Playful Piñata: Munch, munch. This pint-sized piñata will keep all of your cards tucked safely away inside his belly until it’s time to cough them back up at the end of the night. (via Lauren Fair Photography)
11. Lobster Trap: A lobster trap adds subtle nautical flair and makes it a cinch to “catch” all of your friends’ kind, congratulatory words. We just love the way this one was given a pretty pastel upgrade. (via Alex Michele Photography)
13. Gold Mailbox: An old mailbox becomes a wedding-worthy work of art with the addition of glam gold spray paint. Doesn’t this one look simply divine alongside mason jar vases and a lace-trimmed tablecloth? (via Mark Williams Studio)
