Wine Box and Love Letter Ceremony
Posted 19 September 2009 - 11:02 AM
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.

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.

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.

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.
