Wine ceremony wording 

Wine has been called the symbol of life.

The years of our lives are like a cup of wine that is poured out for the sake of labor, honor and love.

The wine glass is to remind you of your love. Delicate, yet strong; filled with love, yet with room for more ………and the Wine, like the life-blood that pulses through our veins, is a symbol of life.

With this space that you give each other, always putting your commitment to love and honor one another first, your lives together will grow deeper, richer and greatly satisfying, like a rare and fine wine.

 

May this wine box and its contents to be opened on the every anniversary serve as a ceremonial loving cup for your relationship.

Many days you will sit at the same table and eat and drink together. As with a glass of wine, one of you may find it sweet, the other perhaps dry or somehow different.

 

Please seal your letters and hand them to the family , only to be opened again year from now  with your wine box.
