“Card Box with Lock?” — Ask Emmaline

We’re answering an Ask Emmaline question today! Find out why you might need a card box with lock — and where to find it. Follow us on Instagram for the latest. ♥

Happy Thursday, loves! Today we’re tackling a wedding advice question from bride-to-be, Lindsey. She writes,

“Hi Emmaline, I am looking for a card box with lock because I want to keep the cards safe at my reception. Do you have any idea where I can find one? Do they exist? I have only seen open card boxes or baskets. Thanks!

Great question, Lindsey! While open card boxes and baskets are common at wedding receptions, they’re not recommended. A card box with lock is the best way to keep your wedding cards and gifts secure. This is not to say we expect anyone will try to lift your cards, but reception halls (as one example) have many people coming and going and you can never be too careful. With a lock, you know with certainty that each card deposited will go home with you safely. Now, on to the card boxes! We’ve rounded up a few card boxes with locks to show you they do exist – you just need to know where to find them! Hope it helps!
