Practical and pretty, these wedding card holders will make life easier for people on your big day

Wedding guests don’t always have the opportunity to deliver cards to the couple prior to their big day, so make life easier for them by having a designated wedding card box. The groomsman usually ‘looks after’ cards on the day, so a drop box would relieve him of this responsibility.

From vintage suitcases to bird cages, there are lots of card holder options available in styles to suit your wedding theme. Here’s our top 12…

1. The wooden suitcase

Minimalistic and functional, we love this simple suitcase-style box available from Etsy.com. It makes a pretty wedding prop and card holder.

12. Make your own

If you don’t fancy forking out for a card holder, make your own. The vintage suitcase remains a popular choice, rummage around in your attic or charity shop for an old suitcase, clean it up, personalise it, and you have a card holder and wedding prop unique to your big day.
