If your looking to add a special something to your ceremony, take a look at the love letter and wine box ceremony.
How it works: 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.
Words spoken during ceremony:
I asked (bride) and (groom) to take a moment and write down what they love about their partner, to write the reason that they found them such an admirable partner an equal, what they mean to them, in essence a love letter. We have these letters here today. I am going to ask (bride) and (groom) to place these letters into this beautiful box they have brought. You see in side this box lays a bottle of wine and two wine glasses and now, their love letters. Now please seal or close the box.
On your fifth wedding anniversary, open the box, take out the wine and read your love letters, and be reminded of the thoughts and love you shared on your wedding day.
There is only one other reason the box should be opened before your anniversary. If there should come a time when you hit a bumpy road in your relationship, before you give up or make any irrational decisions, open the Wine Box. The hope is that there will never be a reason to have to open the box except on your anniversary!
If you do hit a rough spot in your relationship sit down together, open the box, uncork the wine and unseal the envelopes that you wrote for one another before your wedding, go to separate rooms and quietly read the love letter.
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. Never take your blessings of being together for granted.
The romantic sentiments you wrote, the declaration of love, the clear thoughts about why you chose this person as your life partner will help put you back on even ground. This is the perfect ritual to remind you of your wedding day and your intention to love and cherish each other in good times and bad for as long as you both shall live.
