      This was such a great, romantic idea.... that David and I decided to write letters to each other, seal them up and add a bottle of our favorite wine to be opened at al later day... possibly our 5th year anniversary!

      So glad that I found this site.... There are a ton of great ideas! Thanks!

        What a great new tradition! It's probably going to catch on like wildfire. The only thing I would be worried about is the fact that if you don't store wine properly, it spoils. But there's nothing stopping you from writing the letters and putting them alone in a special box. It's definitely very romantic. If I had known about this when I was planning my wedding, I would have added it, for sure. Well, then again, who says you can only do this on your wedding day? Hmmmm. Gotta go write a letter!

          I have found one that just loooks sooooo perffect, but it is out of stock. I have lots of time before my wedding (over a year and a half) so I'm sure I can get it when it comes in.

          This is the link - I think I put it in right Love Letter Ceremony Box Set - Weddingstar

          Maybe it will help you! If you aren't in a big rush. Take care and congrats xox

            Here is some wording that I tweaked...what do you think?

            Love Letter and Wine Box Ceremony –

            Officiant (ADDRESSING GUESTS): Jennifer and Laurthel as a couple, have chosen to perform a Love Letter & Wine Box ceremony.

            This box will contain 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.

            Officiant (ADDRESSING COUPLE): Jennifer and Laurthel, 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 in front of the most cherished people in your lives.

            The hope is, however, that you will never have a reason to open this box. If this is the case, upon your 5th wedding anniversary you are to open this box to share, enjoy and celebrate your love and dedication to one another.
            With that being said, Jennifer and Laurthel please place the bottle of wine, two glasses and letters into the box and seal it.

            Officiant (ONCE ITEMS HAVE BEEN PLACED IN BOX AND SEALED): 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 and your vows.

                I'm adding this to my wish list. We love wine and this just is such a nice romantic idea :) And i like that it adds a bit more the ceremony. I don't want a long ceremony, but some that are over in 10 mins, it's like, geez that was it?!!!

                  I totally agree. Unless you're having some sort of religious ceremony with a service then its over in 15 minutes or less. What I like about this addition to the ceremony is that it will allow us to incorporate other loved ones to play a part in the ceremony. So for example, since both my parents (who are divorced) are walking me down the aisle, I wanted to have his mom (his dad is deceased) present us with the wine glasses and my step dad present us with the letters and bottle of wine. Basically, they will come up, present us with the items, give hugs and kisses, and together we put them into the box.

                    Yay...Crystal I'm glad you are doing this too. Be sure to update me when you get back with the responses from your guests. I am sure its going to cause a lot of questions and comments as most people have never heard of or seen this.

                    My only fear is that I will be an emotional wreck when trying to write his letter. The closer we get to the date the more "unwrapped" I seem to be becoming..LOL

                      I love the wine box idea. I came across this a few months ago, FI and I have decided we are going to do this ourselves by just putting the wine and our letters in it before we leave for Mexico. I just don't want to travel with it. World market definitely has great wine boxes.
