OK, here's something else I thought there was no point in getting until I stumbled across this gorgeous card box from Estilo Weddings - they have some really fantastic but pretty pricey things.
Isn't it ab-fab? Totally matches nothing in my wedding so I am not going to get it, but its another one of those things I came by and thought - oh shoot - do I NEED one of those? In the Northeast everyone gives cards with money, it is RARE to receive an actual gift. We will have a safe in our bridal suite. Do I need a card box too? Hmm. Not sure. There is something about having a receptical for your money that is tacky but at the same time I don't want to be handed someone's very generous gift and just toss it next to my cake - that seems tackier! I'll be thinking on this one. Surely I can make something at Michaels, right? LOL- So many past brides warned me about this, I had all of these ambitious ideas of things I was going to make myself and yet have not conquered one DIY yet, and I really don't see too many in my future. Maybe this will be my one task.
