Wedding Card Box Ideas

Although as the name may imply, a card “box” does not have to be an actual box! The name, by no means, requires you to stick with a specific shape. As long as it holds the envelopes that your guests so graciously brought – it works!

Here are our favorite twists on a traditional card box:

The Birdcage
Birdcages are already pretty in themselves… but adding a floral component really enhances it’s beauty!

The Lantern
Simple and chic…with a sweet note! Just sure that it has an opening large enough for the cards to go in, similar to this Sweetchic lantern!

The Mailbox
It is their soul purpose to hold letters!

The Antique Trunk
For that vintage feel, old trunks and suitcases make the perfect card box!

The Simple Vase
Any large decorative vase works perfectly as a card holder.  Can get enough flowers? Add some to the rim of the vase!

They’ve made their wedding debut through candy bars and dessert tables, but why not a card box too?

Okay, so this may actually be a box….but it’s perfect for the wine-loving couple!
