    Found a pretty box from Winners for $15 dollars and added in some modern calligraphy on the inside with a gold pen to show it was a card box.

    I was thinking of using an Ikea lantern as it matches our centerpieces. The only concern is that it won't lock. Do you ladies think this is a bad idea? Photo is what I was thinking and it would be left open for the cards.

    I made ours from 3 Christmas boxes that I spray painted white, hot glue and black ribbon. It has a sign on the front that I had my calligrapher do that says “cards” now.

    I got a book box on sale from Hobby Lobby. It's the birch one in the back.

    A basic white rustic box that I bought for $20 on Facebook market place. It's perfect

    My dad rented for us a beautiful white card box with jewel edged stones and sliding bottom. It was just perfect to go with our décor in whole. Wish I had a picture to show.

    That’s really pretty, I love the addition of the bed of flowers at the bottom, it’s a beautiful visual! Since you can see through, I love that advantage of that! So creative.

    Love this, I saw something like it at Micheals and I almost bought it but I decided to keep looking for now. I have too much time before the wedding knowing me I’ll end up finding something later and kicking myself for buying something too early.

    I really love this, what a cute note to add to it, I wouldn’t have thought of that myself!

    I’m still on the hunt! I bought a nice box the other day, I got it on sale but it’s too pretty to cut into so I’m still hunting. I’m gonna check out some antique markets and see what I can find. I’m not sure what I want yet, but I want something vintage for sure. I love seeing what others are doing for inspiration!

    I have no idea. Our decor person only has a birdcage, which I like, but the colour isn't right, so I'm going to have to find or make my own. I like the second pic though, might try to DIY that.

    Hallmark is having a 50 % off sale. My Mom paid $32.99 for this adorable wishing well. The bottom slides open. I keep all my special cards so after our Wedding, I'll use this box to store them in.

    I'm not sure yet.

    I really like the idea of the ikea greenhouse, but I also like the idea of a wire basket. Decisions, decisions.

    We used a terrarium that I got from a local flower shop - all I had to do was paint it gold!

    We’re using the Ikea greenhouse that you’ve posted. Undecided whether or not we’ll customize it or just place envelopes within as as a tacitly indicator that this is what it’s for.

    We are using a Treasure Chest! It fits with our tropical/beachy theme. It'll be on a table with some sand around the base and a sand castle (a wooden castle toy covered in sand I've glued on), and have tropical leaves in vases behind it.

    We're using a birdcage for ours, I'm planning on adding some ribbon to jazz it up/spray painting to a different blue.

    I don't have one juuuuuust yet - but I did win some decor from a company that was at the wonderful wedding show in WPG so I get a choice of three options! They just had the pictures taken last weekend and they said they would send the pictures to me as soon as they can! I will come back and post later!

    We’ll be using a card box that my fiancé’s dad made for his brother’s wedding. It’s a sturdy box and it locks so that’s nice
