Original 'Card Box' Ideas
If you are a very lucky newlywed, (and fingers crossed you are) your guests will come bombarding you with tons of cards filled with cash and cheques as soon as they arrive at your wedding venue. The only trouble is, when you are running around like a headless chicken trying to greet them all without missing anybody out, you don’t have enough hands to grab all of the envelopes. The solution? You need a card box.
Card boxes are very popular at the moment and can come in all different shapes and sizes depending on your wedding theme.
For vintage inspired weddings, you can’t go wrong with a beautiful antique suitcase decorated with ribbons, lace and flowers. Make sure you have a ‘CARDS’ sign that directs your guests towards the case though as they might not know the suitcases purpose. For a small price tag, you can pick these elegant cases up from lots of different places such as eBay, Etsy or even car boot sales and if you’re very lucky you might find someone giving one away for free on Freecycle.
It doesn’t have to be a suitcase though, any box, crate, or bucket will do as long as there is enough space inside for those bulging envelopes. I have been trawling through Pinterest this morning in search of interesting and original ideas and have come across some great designs that I just had to share with you. My personal favourites are the rustic milk pale and the birdcage. Both are very innovative and a great alternative to the usual ‘rectangular’ boxes.
Here at The Rustic Wedding Company we specialise in making handcrafted hessian bunting in all different lengths and colours and our ‘best-selling bunting’ title has been claimed quite forcefully by our ‘CARDS’ range.
We sell this ever popular bunting in two different sizes… quite simply… Large and Small. As you can see from our photos, the longer bunting which measures in at 65cm is absolutely perfect for a vintage suitcase. Our shorter but equally as popular version measures in at just 40cm and due to its compact flag size and length it is probably the better choice for smaller crates, picnic baskets and birdcages.
Both of these buntings come with an extra 60cm of lace ribbon which enables you to tie it quite effortlessly to your chosen vessel and with prices starting as little as £6.99 you really can’t afford not to have one of these at your event.
