I have pretty much decided on doing a wine box ceremony. but logistically, i know i can’t put any old bottle of wine in there. i asked someone recently and they said it should be port. and i am pretty sure i don’t like port! i want some kind of wine that tastes good (not too strong like port), that i can put in the wine box and open in minimum 5 years to share with Fiance on our anniversary!
