Invite guests attending your wedding to write you a note that will be read on a future anniversary. The notes can include well wishes, advice for married life, favorite memories of you two together, or anything else they’d like to include. Make it easy for your guests by either including 2 cards, one with instructions and another to write on with your invitations, post about it on your wedding website, or have nice stationery and pens available at the venue.
Pass around a box during the reception for your guests to drop in their notes. Next, seal it up until your anniversary! What could be better during an anniversary than to read the blessings of loved ones at the time of the wedding?
Another twist is to craft a “Love Letter and Wine Box.” Before your big day, gather a wooden box, a bottle of wine or the alcohol of your choice, and two glasses. Write love notes to each other, explaining your feelings as you prepare to start your new life together as husband and wife. Seal your letter without allowing your partner to read what you’ve written.
Toward the end of the ceremony, place the love notes inside the wooden box with the wine and glasses. Take turns hammering the box shut, one nail at a time, until the box is sealed.
Agree to keep the box sealed until a special anniversary, like your 10th or 20th, unless you hit a rough patch. Then, break open the box, pour the wine, read the letters, and remember what is was that brought you together in the first place! Take a look at the words you can use for the “Love Letter and Wine Box Ceremony” here. You can order a custom made wine box with two keys here or another version of the Wine Box here.
