Hi, lovelies! It’s Christmas week, can you believe it?! We’re kicking off the week with an Ask Emmaline question. Bride-to-be, Ashleigh, wants to know where to buy a wood wedding card box with slot. She writes,
“Hi Emmaline! I’m planning a rustic wedding in the spring and I’m looking for a wood card box with slot and hopefully a lock. Do you know where we can get one that looks like a wedding appropriate box, and would last as a keepsake? Thank you!”
Great question, Ashleigh! We have the perfect choice for a wood wedding card box with slot and lock! Yep, both! We recommend a card box for your wedding should always have two things: a slot (one that is large enough to place even a thicker card inside) and make sure it is lockable. Plus, we think it needs to be large enough to hold as many cards as your guest list, so be sure to think about that before you buy a card box. For instance, if the card box is too small, cards will get all bent up and stuffed inside the box, and other guests will simply leave the cards next to the box if there is no more room.
As you may be surprised that a wood wedding card box with lock is essential — it seems funny that you need to lock ’em up! — but we’ve heard enough horror stars of stolen cards to recommend others. You want to make sure the cards, typically with cash, checks, or gift cards inside, make their way into the card box and safely to your home, rather than worrying they are misplaced or taken. (And no, it’s not that we think your guests are stealing cards; it is more of a concern when there are lots of guests at multiple weddings held at the same venue. Someone could walk into the venue and grab cards — it has happened!)
Okay, enough horror stories, back to the task at hand: we need to help you figure out where to buy a wood wedding card box with slot and lock.
Let’s get to it!
We found this wooden wedding card box at Country Barn Babe, whose work we adore! She pours her heart into each custom-made product and we especially like her rustic wood card box designs. She has over 50 of them!
Here are a few we think will look lovely with your rustic wedding.
This next wood card box has a large slot and latch for you to add a small lock (like this).
And this style is another beautiful finish! As you can see, you can customize the color of your wedding card box chest with your favorite finish and have it personalized with your favorite saying, your names, and wedding date.
