Re: QOTD 9/26

  • FI and I installed a lock on our cardbox. If anyone brings a physical gift- we'll have a gift table and then probably my parents, FI's parents or a couple of our friends will bring them back to our house or something.

  • I haven't thought about it. Good question. I believe my venue had told me that there was a safe we could use.

  • We have a table and a bowl for the cards.  Our coordinator will grab one of us periodically throughout the night to collect the cards and put them in a locked office.

    My reception place said they haven't ever had problems with stolen gifts (and we are on the top floor with the entire floor for us). However, she suggested if we felt like we wanted to have our cards safe, that we have my grandma or someone else with a large purse collect them after dinner and hold on to them for the rest of the night since their card boxes don't lock. I'll probably do that just so I'm not paranoid about it.


    ETA: I'll probably also have my parents take the gifts after back to their house and we'll get them later.

  • If they aren't loaded up in our vehicle (I don't drink so I will be driving home) there is a locked room at the golf course for our use so they will stay there overnight.

  • I dont think that is very common around here for the physical gifts at the reception but you never know and we might have a few which will be loaded probably into my mom's car as we probably wont be taking our car. Regarding the cards, I'm hoping to have a mailbox card holder and will probably have someone in charge of taking them out every now and then and storing them somewhere safe

  • I didn't really think about that.  We'll have a card box and then since we'll be moving around the time of the wedding I have no idea what we'll do with physical gifts.

  • The cards and such will probably go with FMIL throughout the night so they aren't just sitting in the box, and if we get any actual gifts, we will probably just load them in FI's or FMIL's car.

  • My mom will be handling this for me. We will have a gift table where there will be a cardbox. Mom will be bringing them back to the house for me. Im not too worried about the gifts / envelopes being stolen. I dont think we'll be receiving many anyway.

  • we will have a card box/table. i am planning to make a picture frame card box. as for who will take them depends on if we will open them the day after for a week later depending on when we leave for honeymoon.

  • I have a birdcage for cards and we will have a table for any boxed gifts. Our venue also has a locked room that we can put things in if we need to. As far as after the reception, any boxed gifts will probably go to FIL's house until we return from our honeymoon. We plan on opening any cards that night or the next morning and depositing any monetary gifts. We leave for the honeymoon late the next afternoon, so I plan on writing thank you notes while waiting at the airport or sometime during our 9 hour flight. With FI's help, hopefully we can get them written and sent out right away. I hope we can send them from the airport, but that might be wishful thinking.

  • We will be having a locked cardbox (cardbox came with the lock so that was nice). And gifts we will have a gift table. I'm not sure if FI and I are going to a hotel after the wedding or if we are just gonna go home but the gifts will probably be taken back to our house by either FFIL or my mom.

  • We were just talking about this the other night.  I will probably either have one of my personal attendants, or my FI's brother (best man) load them into my Jeep and have someone drive it to our house.  I'm pretty sure his brother is going to have one of our vehicles for the weekend anyway, since he's flying in and not renting a car.

    We will probably also get a locked card box.   Haven't really looked for one yet though.
  • I hadn't even thought of putting in a locked box! I will have to bring this up with my event coordinator. =/
