We've all heard the story before: on what is supposed to be the happiest day of their lives, a newly-wedded couple discovers, at the end of their wedding reception, that their cards and enclosed cash gifts from guests have been stolen. Whether the thief was a caterer, a rogue guest, or even the priest, the couple's big day has been blemished, and the nuptials are already off to a bad start.

Lovely to Look at; Hard to Sneak out the Door

Now - instead of stealthily slipping a few envelopes into their purse or breast pocket, imagine the thief trying to walk out carrying a giant lace-trimmed, heart-shaped box with the couple's name on it :-) There you have the reason for money boxes! (Or security... but most couples go with money boxes.)

In addition to being functional, wedding money boxes also come in a variety of fashionable colours, shapes and styles. Wedding boxes can be rented at a cost slightly lower than the purchase price, while purchased wedding boxes can be personalized with the names and photos of the couple. As well, purchased boxes may be used as keepsake boxes to store mementoes from the wedding.
