One small - yet fairly important - detail that many couples overlook is the cardbox. That little vessel that’s going to hold all of your wedding cards does not have to be a white satin box or white birdcage from the craft store. There are so many unique and fun alternatives that can speak more about you and your fiance’s personalities. I always encourage couples to browse stores like Homegoods, TJMaxx, World Market, Pier One, or even the local Goodwill... because it doesn’t have to be a "box".
This charming cardbox is personalized with your initials and your wedding date. So adorable for a rustic themed wedding. By Braggingbags on Etsy, $79.
How about putting some vintage suitcases to work? You can often find these at secondhand shops.
Mailboxes with beautiful detailing can also make an unexpected cardbox. You might find one at an upscale garden decor store OR get creative with an average metal mailbox, some steel wool, and a coat of bronze paint!
Something I have been seeing more often in stores are faux decorative “books” that are actually storage boxes! How fitting for couples that are avid readers. Available at many craft stores and Sears, $30.25
Another great idea is one that your florist can create by using a large clear vase, surrounded with a lush ring of flowers and a slot where cards can fit through.
