A REALLY COOL IDEA FOR A WEDDING: "In Case of Emergency" box

This would be BRILLIANT for a shower gift I bet. I remember hearing about these a few months prior to my wedding, and wish I had remembered to do it for mine, and especially as a gift for friends or my sister's wedding.  The person in this story had the box made by her uncle.  It is brilliant.

...Though for the husband and I, it would have been a Pina Colada or something. We're not wine people really. We really don't even drink. So maybe Diet Dr. Pepper and Diet Dew...?

Either way, REALLY great idea!

Congrats to you Stephb0lt!

During the ceremony we closed up our "open in case of emergency box."  We wrote love letters to one another and put them in this box, along with a bottle of wine and two glasses.  During the ceremony, our parents added letters they had written in support of our marriage.  The idea is if we ever get to a point where we feel like our marriage is struggling, we take an evening to read the letters and drink the wine, to remember why we chose to marry one another.  If we're lucky enough to not have any of those crisis moments in the first 10 years, we'll open it on our anniversary and then seal it up again for another 10 years.  My uncle made the box.  We only gave him very basic instructions and he provided this amazing work of art.
