Yep that is what we plan on doing!  I think it’s such a cute idea but didn’t want to add anything onto the ceremony itself.  Now to pick out the wine 🙂

Ebay!! I got mine there just look for cedar wine box…Im not really sure how we are going to incorporate it into our wedding.  Any ideas??

 

The most FUN part was going to the wine tasting in N. Georgia this past weekend. We did get our wine though and had a great time doing it!

@Mrs Hedgehog: We are. I was going to add it to the ceremony but our families are kind of traditional and they wouldn’t “get” it. They have some really inexpensive wine boxes on amazon.com by the way. I think we are going to do the unity candle but since we are getting married outside, we are going to have to put the candles inside something so the wind doesn’t blow them out. I don’t have all of the logistics figured out yet =)

My Fiance and I plan on doing one. We’re getting married away, so when we return, we’re having a small dinner at our favorite restaurant and winery. We’ll let guests say a few words, we’ll say some words to each other, then seal the wine box with our letters. We’re getting both the wine and box from the restaurant 🙂

That’s such a good idea! We were planning on getting a few bottles of a 2011 wine that we can keep for anniversaries and things. The wine we’re drinking at the reception won’t keep longer than a few years.

We didn’t but we are doing something a little similar.

One of our family friends makes his own wine and gave us a bottle as a wedding present.  We are saving that bottle and plan to drink it together on our 1st anniversary.

We actually wanted to do this at our reception, but ended up at a totally dry venue (conservative Christian college campus) and couldn’t.

I’d really like to do it for our one-year anniversary, a sort of way to celebrate/resolidify. The whole adage about the first year of marriage being the toughest and all, I know we’re growing/going to grow a lot this year as a couple, so I figure we can incorporate that into our letters 😉

We are also doing that privately.  we initiatially wanted to incorporate it into the ceremony, but have since changed our minds.  We will however, be doing that before the wedding.  Might as well get the Fiance to write his letter to me while he’s still excited about the wedding.  And he has to write his vows too.  two birds..one stone.
