Wedding Wine Box

A wedding wine box is a growing trend lately, with some even incorporating them into the ceremony. I got the idea for this at my brother-in-law’s wedding last month. Towards the end of their ceremony they mixed a glass of red wine and white wine in a decanter to symbolize their different lives coming together as one. They then placed unread letters to one another in the wedding wine box with the wine and nailed it shut. The sealed wedding wine box is then to be opened on their anniversary, to reveal the letters and wine. Great idea, huh?

Naturally, building one seems like not only a great way to save some money but also a meaningful wedding gift. We built this solid red oak, personalized, wedding wine box, for about $30.
