So, my ceremony is in a museum (pics of other wedding below). In lieu of buying more flowers I thought doing a wine ceremony (each table having a carafe of wine with a middle table for the glass) would be a nice way to somewhat border where we will be standing. I also really like the wine box ceremony idea, so was thinking of doing both. Would that be over kill? Or if we use the same type of wine will it be cohesion? We could technically do the wine box ceremony at another time (i.e. privately or during the rehearsal dinner or something).
We had planned to give stemless wine glasses as favors, and were going to incorporate somethign from the ceremony on notes or tags or something in the glasses for some cohesion.
I’d love some advice.

I’m not sure what these ceremonies are… I’ve heard of a wine box ceremony but i’m not exactly sure what is done during one and I’ve never heard of the other. If you explain what happens in these you might get more feedback. Sorry I couldn’t be of more help. 🙂

Description of the wine ceremony
The couple is poured a glass of white and a glass of red during the wedding ceremony, each drinks from each glass and then they pour their wine together in a separate glass, and the new glass of wine looked like a rosé. IN the ceremony the color of the wines are talked about and how the blending of their hearts together to become one.
Description of the Wine Box ceremony is described here:
A Nontraditional Tradition
In a nutshell, each of you write a love letter to the other and seal it. You get a wooden box, put the loves letters in the box with a bottle of wine and 2 glasses. The best man nails or locks the box shut. If your marriage is ever in crisis you open up the box read the letters and and share the glass of wine together. If its never in danger you open it for a major anniversary.
Hope that helps!

not sure what a box wine ceremony is? Is that a joke? Please explain. Also I think box wine at any wedding is border line tacky.
… ah I see the response… I’d change the name to letter ceremony or something and leave out the bottle of wine. Wine box makes it seem bad. Just letters to each other is perfectly fine. Also if you were to make it well known that the wine you’re serving at the reception is the same as in your sealed box then it might put out a weird vibe… maybe I’m thining to much into it but I’d feel like I’m drinking to your failure years from now.

Sounds like a bit of overkill to me, personally. Maybe you could do the sand ceremony and the wine box thing?
