Box for gift cards at the reception?
What's the most sensible thing to do if someone gives you a wedding card at the reception? I know people frequently wait until the last moment to give wedding gifts, and may bring them to the reception. I have a spot set aside in case, but I'm not sure what the protocol is for cards to keep them from getting lost. I read somewhere that someone decorated a box and put a slot in the top. (This was for a very large ethnic wedding in New York where it's customary to give the bride and groom checks.) It's altogether possible no one will bring a card--we're certainly not expecting any--but I wonder if there's a better way to handle it than have the groom stick it in his pocket (assuming he has a pocket!).
