Okay ladies can I ask about cardboxes?!
I have mixed feelings about them in general (ie I think they're a waste of money and a simple basket placed out would suffice just fine). Also, I'm not keen on trying to bring down extra stuff - so unless the cardbox were to fold down etc. for travel then I'm disinclined.
However, what about security (a friend of mine says its something I need to consider)? Do card boxes actually make it less likely that someone would go by and steal cards? Couldn't someone just then take the whole box?
But... it's an outside venue at a resort with a lot of other people who could maybe lurk and grab?
What are people thinking of doing? What did you married ladies do? Does the resort have a cardbox you can use? Did you set up your gift table well "within" the space where your reception was so that it was safer? Am I totally just over thinking something that's a non-issue?
I just worry about it because I imagine that if anyone brings anything gift-wise to the wedding it would likely be cards (hopefully, since I don't really want to lug wedding gifts home from Mexico haha).
I have to be honest, but I've never heard of a cardbox. Is it to hold the cards (most likely having cash/checks/gift cards in them) that people could give as gifts? If that's the case then I wouldn't worry about this at all. Theft shouldn't be a problem as outsiders will stear clear of your wedding. Plus, there will be waiters, hotel staff, WC, and Lomas staff around.
We were very clear that we didn't want gifts brought to Mexico, and no one did. We did get a card or two, but guests gave us those either the days leading up to the wedding or after the wedding. Since a DW isn't a traditional wedding, a gift table isn't something I think I've ever seen at one. Your guests will see you and have chances to give you cards at times other than the reception. Most likely they'll take advantage of a quiet moment when you're not around other people. That's the beauty of a DW...quality time with your guests!
