I recently heard about the "wedding wine box ritual".  I am doing this ritual in my wedding in July.  Here is what it is:

The idea is that you and Fiance right a letter to each other about why you want to marry and anything else you want to say to your new husband…

Your celebrant or minister puts these letters in the box with a bottle of wine and your two glasses.  He/she says that you and your husband will open this box on your 25th wedding anniversary and read your letters.  Or if you ever are in troubled times and need a lift, you can open the box to remind each other why your together.

Then have your Best man or Maid/Matron of Honor close and lock the box. 

YOu will need the following items for this:

A bottle of wine – get one that stays good for over 25 years 

 a wine box – it must hold a bottle of wine and two wine glasses (my brother is great with wood working and is making one for my wedding)

Get two wine glasses – my mom is giving me two custom wine glasses for my shower

Get a lock to lock the box – try a cute little combo lock that you can set the combo to your wedding date. Or a cute heart shaped diary lock that if you lost the key it would be easy to open. 

I am so excited about this ritual – its so different from anything I have ever seen.  Of course my celebrant has some good wording for the presentation of this ritual.

@juliemd414 I saw that recently, too, and I love it! I don’t know that we will make it a part of our ceremony, but at the very least I would like to do this on our own.
