Are you DIYing your card box?

Will you try your hand at creating your own card box? Perhaps your venue has something you can use? Or have you decided to buy or rent one?

    This we will likely keep simple, and rent something.

    We ended up getting one for free from our day of coordinator!

    I think we just had a table for people to put things on and to sign the guestbook.

    I'm actually not sure at the moment. I have found a DIY version both my FH and I like (it's shaped like a TARDIS from Dr. Who), but also am wondering if I will have the time to assemble it as it is fairly involved. If not, we have an alternate idea of buying a TARDIS cookie jar and re-using it afterwards.

    The venue has a card box we can borrow, but I haven't looked at it yet. If I'm not a fan then I'll figure something out, but likely buying one

    We bought a glass terrarium as a card box, so while it's creative I don't consider it DIY.

    We just have the oh so popular IKEA mini greenhouse. Not adding any decals or altering its color in anyway because my intention is to use it on our balcony after for herbs LOL

    Probably - there was a lot that we liked that were available to purchase but they were quite pricey for something that we can just as easily make.

    I believe my venue has one we can borrow. If not I'll look for something off of marketplace.

    Our venue provided the card box. We just had to make sure it was empty by the end of the night when they were taking down the decor

    We didn't make our card box, but husband's grandmother did. She was a florist before she retired and would rent it out and customize it to each couple's colours and designs. It's a tradition that has been at his family weddings on his mom's side from his parents' wedding to his uncles' weddings and his sister's wedding.

    We're using a mini greenhouse from IKEA for this, I'm still undecided if I want to paint it gold or not to match some of our other elements, and we will be adding some fake florals and greenery around it since it's pretty big

    I've got my eye on a used one on the facebook marketplace. Hopefully will pick it up on Saturday.

    We actually used the memory box that my DH made for me on my birthday the first year we were together (2017) after he heard I had been saving little mementos from all of our dates Smiley smile
