Wine Box and Love Letter Ceremony

Recommended Posts

This is a wonderful idea. I would only add that I hope the box would never have to be opened.

 

Another thought I have is that you should be sure to store this in a way to ensure that the wine doesn't turn. OMG, Can you imagine having a big all-out blow up of a marriage-threatening fight, and decide to open the wine and read the love letters? You open the box only to find the wine has turned to vinegar. Well, I don't think even the best of love letters could overcome that omen.....LOL.

Here are a couple examples of the wording:

 

Minister: _____ and _____ have chosen as a couple to perform a Love Letter & Wine Box ceremony.

 

This box contains a bottle of wine, two glasses, and a love letter from each to the other. The letters describe the good qualities they find in one another, the reasons they fell in love, and their reasons for choosing to marry. The letters are sealed in individual envelopes and they have not seen what the other has written. You have created your very own "romantic" time capsule to be opened on your 5th wedding anniversary.

 

I recommend that you keep the box in a place of honor prominently displayed in your home as a constant reminder of your commitment to each other.

 

Minister: _____ and _____ should you ever find your marriage enduring insurmountable hardships, you are to as a couple, open this box, sit and drink the wine together, then separate and read the letters you wrote to one another when you were united as a couple in marriage. By reading these love letters you will reflect upon the reasons you fell in love and chose to marry each other here today.

 

The hope is, however, that you will never have a reason to open this box. And if this is the case, you are to open this box to share and enjoy on your 5th year wedding anniversary!

 

Minister: _____ and _____, you may now seal the box.

I saw this idea somewhere and I immediately told my FI and he loved it as well. His dad is making our box for us. We are doing the two bottles of wine with the letters.

 

Here's a different description:

Make a box with two bottles of wine & a letter from the bride and groom that cannot be opened. Nail it shut. The deal here is, if you ever forget why you were married and the love you shared you open the box, take the wine to separate rooms and read the unopened letters the you wrote on your wedding day to each other. Otherwise you save the box for your 10 year anniversary.

Well I found the perfect box. I originally went to World Market but they wanted $50.00 for a basic box - nothing EXTRA about it. Then I went to Michaels craft store and found an unfinished box for 19.99, but I had a coupon and only paid 15.99. I also bought 3 palm tree embellishments for .59 each that I spray painted metallic silver. The box also has rope handles which give it a nautical feel - perfect for a beach ceremony.

 

By the box being unfinished I can decorate it any way I want - YAY !!

 

Also, I am going to put batting on the inside bottom and sides and cover the batting with satin.

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
