Through the years, I have noticed many gift tables (including the card box) are placed outside of the main reception room. Maybe in the lobby where the cocktail hour is being held, or near the door right outside of the reception room. We get so caught up in our special day, we never consider that somebody might be tempted to lift a few cards in hopes to find some cash. Worse yet, when the gift table isn’t in a location where it can be watched, somebody can walk off with the entire card box.
When making your plans, don’t risk the safety of your gifts. Be sure to include a place for them in the main reception area. And don’t forget to give somebody the assignment of getting the gifts to safety after the reception.
Don’t risk a bad ending to your perfect day by thinking ‘it won’t happen to me’. Take precausions and enjoy!
