Wine Box and Love Letter Ceremony

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever done this? Basically, as part of your ceremony the Officiant asks the bride and groom to place a bottle of wine, two wine galsses and sealed love letters that they have written each other into a box. During the first five years of marriage, should the couple experience any hardships where they are considering separating then they are to open the box, drink the wine and read to each other.

 

I love this idea and I am going to incorporate this into my ceremony, however, does anyone know where I can get a nice box. I would like to have a treasure chest style box that can be engraved with a padlock instead of having to hammer down the top with nails like the website suggests.

I love this idea. And agree that nailing and hammering during the ceremony might be a little awkward. Try places like World Market/Cost Plus or Pier 1 for some cute boxes.

oh my goodness, too funny, I was going to start a thread about this today! We were at a wedding last weekend and the couple did this! I had never heard of the idea before that but I think it is a great idea! the reading that they did during the ceremony was just so touching and sooooo many of the guests that were at the wedding were commenting on what a good idea it was!

 

they used like a small treasure box thing...it did have a lock on it

Your local wine establishment will sell nice boxes, some will even be set up for a bottle of wine and glasses. We have bought a few for gifts. I find the specialty wine stores have the nicest box.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
