A few days back I posted this in the DIY forum and got amazing feedback. But now I am stuck with trying to figure out how to word this into the ceremony (like a poem or something) any ideas? Here was my old post.
I was in the car yesterday listening to the radio and the talk show host said that he went to a wedding this weekend and saw something rather unique.
Instead of the unity candle/ sand ceremony the couple each wrote each other a letter (before the wedding) and placed it is an old wine crate and each took turns hammering it shut. The crate was not to be opened until their 10 year anniversary.
I thought this sounded so different and special so I went to JoAnnes yesterday and started digging around to find the tools that I would need for this project. Then, I realized that I was getting married on a cruise and in no way could i bring a hammer and nail onto the ship.
So, I started thinking of other ideas and I think I came up with a great one. I went over to their glass bottle section and purchased 2 oil and vinegar glass bottles, a set of corks (to replace the oil and vinegar ones) 2 pieces scrapbooking paper that looks like old wood (we would write our letters on this), mother of pearl filler shells for inside the bottle as decoration, some raffia to tie around the top and 2 seashell charms (to hang from the raffia), A rubber stamp that says from this day forward, and some gold paint (to use for the stamping- this was suggested from a lady who works there because she said stamp ink would not work on glass).
What do you think?
No pictures yet, I just wanted to get some imput before I start because if it seems weird I will return everything.
