We’re doing the wine box ceremony and using language similar to what’s here: http://fairlycrafty.areavoices.com/2012/03/20/wine-box-wedding-ceremony/
In lieu of a guest book, we want to have the box open at the reception so that guests can write their own notes, well-wishes, etc. to include in the box for whenever we open it.
What I’m struggling with is crafting some clear, concise language that explains this; a blurb that we can include at the end of the wine box ceremony. Has anyone done something like this?

We did!! We actually had our venue coordinator use the Dj’s microphone to explain the ime box ceremony during dinner. She didn’t use a prepared statement. Basically said “in case you’re wondering what the cards on your tables are for, Bride and Groom will be doing a wine box ceremony (note- we did ours after the cake cutting)… Blah blah brief description of the ceremony… Please write your own message to Bride and Groom on the cards, and MoH and BestMan will collect them after dinner and make sure they’re placed inside the wine box.”
we were able to put the cards and pens on the tables with the centerpeices, and because people were already sitting at a table, they had good surfaces to write on. By asking them at dinner to write the cards, everyone had their card and pen right there, so nobody forgot!

That is a great idea! I hadn’t thought about that option, but what a good way to ensure that nobody misses out. Thank you!
