We’ve talked about a wedding card box with a lock before, telling you all the reasons why you need to keep the wedding cards secure. But if you don’t want to deal with a lock and key — or you’re a couple who craves something more stylish and unique — then this whiskey barrel card box from Motor City Barrels is for you.
Whiskey Barrel Card Holders Make Reusable Decor
It’s not exactly a card box, but it serves the same purpose. It’s more of a card holder and it is made from a whiskey barrel. This makes more sense in the long run because unlike that card “box” you’ll never use again, this whiskey barrel card holder is stylish enough to be used as home decor after the wedding.
It won’t look like hey, why is your card box still sitting on your bookcase but instead, where did you get that awesome whiskey barrel? And we’re here for it.
This unique wedding item has a rustic style, can be personalized, and features a wide card slot on the top. Guests can’t reach into it to, ya know, steal your cards (although we don’t anticipate anyone trying to), and guests won’t see a lock and key that reveals the thought did (at one point) cross your mind that someone on the guest list may be looking to make a quick buck. ;) Ha! Only kidding.
Why This Secure Card Box is a Must-Have
If you’re wondering why you need to lock down your cards and cash like Fort Knox, we’re not so concerned about your cousin or your grandmother taking off with a small fortune.
Here’s the real reason behind it.
It is always recommended to have a secure card box at your wedding, but especially when your wedding is held at a large venue where there are two or more weddings taking place, or in an area where lots of outside people could easily saunter into the crowd. Things get chaotic with so many people coming and going to different weddings, so everyone is assumed to be a guest. But there could be a wedding crasher who gets past security (ha) and into the mix of people, using bad dance move as a ruse; however, they’re planning to break into the card boxes and take off running with a fistful of dollars and about a dozen gift cards to Bed Bath & Beyond.
It’s the stuff movies are made of, I say!
Don’t let your cards and cash and retail gift cards get stolen: get yourself a whiskey barrel card box. They probably won’t even notice it’s for cards, since it blends into your beautiful decor and doesn’t look like your typical card box. Thieves won’t know what to do! ;)
Anyway, the top of the card container is engraveable, too, and looks like this:
Isn’t this such a great idea?
