Sweet and Romantic : a Love Letter Ceremony Box Set

sponsored post

This Love Letter Ceremony Box Set from The Wedding Outlet will make the perfect gift for a bride and groom. A Love Letter exchange is a romantic ceremony that will enhance your wedding and serve as a lasting reminder of the commitments made to one another. Heartfelt letters, with your loving thoughts and feelings are locked away to be revealed several years into your marriage. This is a distinctive way to celebrate your love for one another. A true keepsake that the couple will appreciate.

You can re-open the box on a milestone anniversary, such as the 5th, 10th or any other significant
event. Once you unlock the box and enjoy the contents, write new letters, replace the wine and lock the box away for the next special occasion.

How it works:
1. Before your wedding day, each of you should prepare a letter to your partner. Once you prepare the
final version of your love letter, seal it in the enclosed envelope. Do not share the letter until that special anniversary or event.

2. You may then present the completed and sealed love letters to your officiant. Plan with your officiant the readings and special comments that will accompany the ceremonial sealing of the box. Be sure that the special sentiments that are at the heart of this ceremony are explained to your guests. Locked inside will be your personally selected bottle of wine (not included), two goblets and the sealed love letters. Consider also including flower petals, a small vile of sand or any other personal mementos that will fit inside the box. Together with your officiant and witnessed by your guests, perform the ceremonial "Locking of the Box". This will symbolize the commitment you are making to each other from this day forward.

3. After the wedding, display the Love Letter Ceremony Box Set in your home. Store the key in a safe place so that you can unlock and enjoy the contents on your special day.

I think this is such a sweet idea to incorporate into your wedding and I love that it's something that will be used for years together and not just on the wedding day.
