My nephew is getting married in Sept. I told my wife that I should build them a wedding box. She asked what a wedding box is for. I said I don’t know. Just what is a wedding box for? Whatever the couple wants? Or is there a tradition that I’m not aware of?

Hi Ron,
My daughters boss asked for a box to accept money envelope gifts for her sisters wedding and this is what I came up with. It sat on a table next to the receiving line.
The pictures I used are of a pet, just to show here.
Naturally they switched them with some nice pictures of the wedding couple.
The box revolves on the base to show four sides of pictures, and the lid opens to unload the envelopes.
They really liked it and I guess it worked out pretty well. Just a thought.

Thanks Eric – I was thinking that a wedding box could hold the money envelopes. I like the way that yours frames 4 pictures. Great Idea!
