Wine Box/Love Letter; You are asked to write each other a love letter and bring them on the day of your wedding along with a bottle of wine placed in a decorative box. During the ceremony we explain that the Wine Box should be opened on your 5th wedding anniversary.
“Today _____ and _____ bring with them a love letter. I asked that they write this letter to each other expressing what qualities they liked in each other and what about their partner stood out and why they wanted to marry this person. They were asked to seal these letters without reading them to each other.
______ and _____ will place these letters in a box along with a bottle of their favorite wine and will seal this box.
The box should be put in a place of honor in your home so that when you look at it you are reminded of the love that you shared today, your wedding day.
On your fifth wedding anniversary you should open the box, share a glass of wine and read the love letters. It is a wonderful time to celebrate the years you have shared together and to be reminded of all the qualities your partner has that first drew you together.
However, if before your fifth anniversary you should have a disagreement, a moment that the two of you can not seem to find a common ground. I would suggest you take a moment to open the box, have a glass of wine and read those love letters.
Even if you are not seeing eye-to-eye at that very moment, it will remind you of all the reasons you choose this person as your partner and all the things that helped shape the life they've created together. And just maybe that disagreement won’t seem so bad and you can again find a common ground to move forward on.
