    My mom and I are going back and forth about whether or not I should have a card box at our wedding. I never thought people would bring gifts to a destination wedding due to the expense of just getting there. Did any of you receive gifts or cards at your wedding?

    Great question I am also wondering about this. I just got back from a destination wedding and we gave the couple a card. However, didn't see anyone else do so. Not sure if everyone did in private or not at all

      We had our wedding two weeks ago and used a lobster trap to collect cards. About half of our guests ended up handing the cards to my husband. We only had one guest bring a gift. If you plan to have a gift table make sure it is a safe location where someone wouldn't run off with it. The lobster trap was a great way to make it difficult for cards to walk away. Perhaps a pretty bag you carry for cards might be a good option too. Good luck!

        Great point. I don't want to look presumptious by walking around with a bag at my DW so I think I'll just entrust one of my bridesmaids with card collecting duty lol If I get one I'll give it to her and she'll put them away for us.
