Wine & Love Letter Box

This reminds me of something I used to do when I was little. Whenever it snowed my neighbor and I would write a little note to each other, wrap it up in a snowball then freeze it until summer. When it was the hottest month of the summer we would have a snowball fight then read our notes.

I came across this somewhere on the Internet universe and fell in love with the idea. Just make sure you store the wine correctly or you might be drinking vinegar.

Prior to the wedding, you gather a strong wooden wine box, a bottle of wine and two glasses. Then, also before the ceremony, you both sit down separately and write love notes to each other, explaining your feelings on the eve of your wedding day. Each letter then gets sealed in its own envelope. You do not read your beau’s letter.

Then, at some point during the ceremony, your officiant explains the process, and the two of you seal the box by taking turns hammering in one nail at a time until the box is closed.

You don’t open the box until your 10th anniversary (or really whatever anniversary you choose.) Either way, on the day that you open the box, you both read the letters and drink the wine, remembering how you both felt just days before your wedding day.
