Need some opinions please!
For our wedding - we have a gift registry and wishing well. We have a list of things we need through Myer and there is also a wishing well for the guests that do no want to go into a store and pick something.
At the wedding I want to organise a space for the cards and gifts to be placed. I don't want to assume most people will give the gifts to us before the day..and then have to deal with individual gifts and envelopes left on a table on the night - with no way to get them all together.
As our destination wedding is at a winery, I thought I might get a half barrel and place it on the side table. That way the cards and gifts can be placed in the barrel and when we leave the whole thing can just get placed in the getaway car.
I have bought some chalkboard signs to place on the table - one will be for our guest book and the other one for cards/gifts. If I place a sign in front of the barrel and write "Cards and gifts" - is that going to look rude? I do not want to come across as rude, but I also want guests to use the barrel so its easier at the end of the night.
What do you think?
