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).
We got three cards and only one of those was given to us at the reception. The other two were brought to our room. I probably wouldn't worry about getting a card box. I asked my mother beforehand to hold any cards we got. Maybe you can do something like that and then put them in the room safe when you get them.

All the dresses, including mine came from David's Bridal. The pink is called Candy Pink but I think they're discontinuing that color.
