OPEN THREAD: We had a thief at our wedding — what can we do?

During our wedding reception, several cards containing (apparently) money and gift cards were stolen. The only reason I know this, is because two of my bridesmaids told me that they thought they saw my (now) brother-in-law's daughter pocketing something at the gift table. Sure enough, after sending out a private Facebook message to people who were at our wedding, it seems like some people brought cards that we never saw.

Luckily, I was able to find out so that I could still write them all Thank You notes! But, guys, I'm super upset — not about the missing prezzies (although that sucks) — I just don't know what to do at this point. There's no proof with which to bust my niece, and suspicion alone isn't worth the risk of ruining a relationship with my brother-in-law.

  1. Is this what the whole deal is about elaborate card boxes? Just a cute anti-theft device? Here I was thinking I might just use a basket, but maybe something with a slot is better….

    • I was thinking the same thing, my friends had used a globe they cut a small slot into and I asked them why since it’ll be super hard to get them out without nearly ruining globe. I didn’t realize that’s the point. Plus they had a decent plan of cutting with a dremel around the equator and adding hinges to the back afterwards without issue, so it was just fine. It sure looked cool though, something like that won’t look suspicious either if you’re thinking of going that route for security reasons.
