This is one for all the wine connoissuers out there .. inside a mini wine box place your love letters to each other along with your favourite drop of red .. who could think of anything more meaningful than your own time capsule to be opened on your 5 year anniversary?
On your 5th wedding anniversary, have a special ceremony of your own to open the wine box, or on a special dinner date, read your love letters to each other and of course toast to your love and happiness while drinking your bottle of wine together.
Depending on the size of your wine box you may also have space inside to place two special wine glasses.
Some couples love this idea so much, that they will replace the wine bottle and love letters to be opened on their next multiple of 5 years anniversary!
Wine boxes can be ordered from wine and spirit companies, so check with them directly. Boxes can also be ordered from online suppliers such as Ebay or Etsy where you can find a great range of designs, including those pictured on this page.
Example Ceremony Wording
[Partner 1 & Partner 2] have chosen to create a Love Letter & Wine Box time capsule.
This hand made box contains a specially chosen bottle of wine along with two glasses.
[Partner 1 & Partner 2] have each written letters to each other.
Their letters describe the good qualities they find in one another, the reasons they fell in love, and their reasons for choosing to marry, along with a personal message to each other.
Their letters are sealed in individual envelopes and they have not seen what the other has written.
In a moment, [Partner 1 & Partner 2] will each place their letters carefully inside the box. Together they will close and seal the wine box to form a time capsule.
Their time capsule is to be opened on their 5th wedding anniversary. At which time they will also open the bottle of wine, read their letters to each other and enjoy a drink as part of their 5th wedding anniversary celebrations.
