I fell in love with this idea when I heard about it. For the fellow bees having a wine box ceremony, post a pic! I haven’t received mine YET, but here is what I ordered:
It will have our names and our wedding date on the top with silver hardware 🙂
We’re each going to write a letter to each other and put it in the box with the wine we choose every year to open on our next anniversary.

@starlight1222: I just wanted to say that I love your wine box! Hope some people respond because I’d like to see how it was incorporated as well! 🙂

I really want to do this! Subscribing to this thread so I can creep on other Bees’ pics 😛

@starlight1222: We are doing this for sure. Fiance and I are HUGE wine drinkers, so it only makes sense for us.
I’m excited to follow this thread too!

We picked this one: http://www.etsy.com/listing/54210065/wedding-wine-box?ref=correlated_featured
It has arrived and it’s beautiful. We were going to incorporate it into the ceremony but shifted it to the end of the night. Shortly before cake-cutting, we’ll have two of our friends (a couple, married 30 years) to present it to us and say a few words. We’re also having small cards printed up and asking our guests to each write us a note, and those will go into the box along with our notes to each other.

We did this! 🙂 Neither of us wanted unity candles or sand or anything like that, and the wine box seemed perfect. We procrastinated a bit, so we didn’t actually get around to writing the letters until the morning of the wedding – whoops! Our box is very simple, sadly I don’t have a closeup pic of it. But my husband actually built it himself so it’s extra special to me.
We just put the box on a wooden table. You can see it here, our officiant stood in front of it during most the ceremony, then stepped aside for us to nail it shut.
It blended away pretty nicely once everyone was up there, I didn’t even notice it in half the pictures!
