These days, you usually have an engagement party or wedding shower where friends and family bring gifts for you and your future husband. This allows for less fuss on the day of the wedding. However, destination wedding see many cards from guests instead of big bulky gifts. So of course you need a cute card container to hold all this generous gifts from your loved ones. Here are some of our favorite ideas:
A Monogramed Wooden Box- With your new initials or just the first letters of you and your new husband’s name on the front, setting this next to your guestbook table as your guest enter your reception area is the perfect way to be sure they aren’t handing you cards all night. You can paint it any color you wish and decorate it in your color palette exactly how you wish. Sometimes simple is the best (and cutest) way to go.
A Mailbox- What is more adorable than a mailbox you’ve decorate or painted to collect the letters and wishes from your guests? This card container will make your guests stop and be amazed at how creative you are! You can typically find a cheap vintage mailbox at a flea market or thrift store, making it even more budget friendly for you to decorate exactly how you’d like.
Vintage Lantern- Sometimes a simple old lantern or bird cage can be perfect for your cards or even for center pieces. With a lantern, you can arrange sand and shells from the beach you are getting married on in the bottom to catch the cards. How perfect is incorporating your surroundings with something so simple?
These are just a few of our favorite ideas for you to collect the cards that are sure to make the trip down to Cabo with your guests.
