    What's it for? Most people bring cards instead of big gift boxes to the wedding. They'll put money or gift cards in there, it's easier for them and everyone else.

    Mine isn't this exact one but something similar, old suitcase with a little banner reading CARDS

    After hearing horror stories of cards coming up missing we will have a box that's sealed that way if someone took it they would have take the whole box.

    I will designate someone to be by the card box and guestbook table and once dinner starts put the card box in hiding.

    My FSIL makes amazing "cake" card boxes which are decorated stacked boxes usually with the married couples initials on it. I told her I loved the one she did for her wedding and she got so excited when I asked if she could make ours. I cannot wait to see it!!

    Got mine off etsy and it locks! It also displays some of our engagement pictures, there 8x10's so it's a pretty big box. It also rotates..

    Made my own...no lock but cover is so snug they would have to take the whole thing and it is big enough that they would never get out with it without being seen!
