Card/Gift Table?

Where are you having your card table? At the ceremony as people walk in? Or at the reception?

Ya I guess you could. I guess I was just thinking if someone brings a gift (which I know most are cards and gifts go in mail) that they'd have to carry it around and set it under their chair at the ceremony if it was at the reception.

huh... yeah it would only be good for the cards but I've never taken the gift into the ceremony, I've always left it in the car until the reception... they say lots of peepz throw the invite away when they're done... I was thinking making the card box three tiers with each on open... that way on the way out they can "recycle" the invite or program if they don't want it...  idk, just thoughts runnin' loose!

Ours will be as people walk to the ceremony.. There's a concrete path going from the main parking lot to the grassy alter area.  We'll have it there.. on the table we'll have the photobook, bird cage card holder, a piece of slate with "Goff Est. 2009" vinyl letters, some flowers, and some vases with chocolates/candy in them.

My ceremony and reception are at the same place and the parking isnt exactly close to the site. So I think itd be a pain for people to walk back to cars then back to reception after. So I think I may do ceremony...

The ceremony and reception are at the same place too, Leslie, just like yours.  When the guests first start arriving to the ceremony site, there's a patio where they can sit and mill about in the shade instead of the 90 degree Pleasanton sun.


The gift table will be there.  So if there's a place that guests can "hang out" before the ceremony starts, maybe you could find a place to put it there. :D

Perfect!  Why don't you place it there? :D  I'm sure your guests would love to hang out at the table.

:) We're having a gift tree! Since it will be xmas time we're not getting a box, we'll have people leave things under the tree for us, and it will be at the reception
