The Beer Box for a Wedding Ceremony Script
The Wedding Box Ceremony is a popular option for couples who like wine, whisky or even beer. It's also a great option for couples who love to write. Perhaps you want to write your own vows but don't want to share them in front of everyone? You can write them and put them in the box for a memory for later. Perhaps a note to your future self?
The Beer Box Ceremony is a great variation on the wine box. This particular couple came up with the idea themselves. The groom liked to brew beer and they wanted something a little different. They found a recipe for a five year stout and it was appropriate. At this updating of my website the couple is a solid 3 years into their marriage with 2 more years to go to stout! I wrote this ceremony for them.
The Beer Box Ceremony Script
Yes, a beer box
This is not a keg for all to share or a new carton to crack open.
Bride and Groom have chosen to perform a box ceremony today. The box is sort of like time capsule. They have written letters to each other about how they feel about each other today with their hopes and dreams. They have copies of their vows and each have chosen a small trinket that will be funny to remember 5 years from now. Since they wanted me to write the ceremony I’ve made an extra copy of it to add to the box. They also have a bottle of beer
One, nice big bottle of beer.
Why Beer you may ask? This isn’t just any beer. Groom brews his own and this is a very special home brew. It’s a 5 year stout. It will take 5 years to reach it’s maturity. In 5 years they can open the box, enjoy the beer, read the words they have written and celebrate their 5th anniversary.
At least that’s the plan.
Another way to look at this is if their marriage ever reaches that point of what seems like no return they will then open it and drink the beer and realize why they chose to marry to begin with to try and re-kindle, remember or figure out their current problem.
It’s true, many find it a good idea to have a drink, chill out, calm down and try and figure things out. This is their emergency alcohol box.
There are so many things that we can say that are serious or funny. A beer box? That comes off as kind of funny and light hearted.
This ceremony is often done with a bottle of good wine or whisky. When I asked them what happens if the beer’s not ready yet?
“If you have to open the box before 5 years you deserve bad beer!”
Excellent point wouldn’t you say?
But, what about the need for that drink?
How about this? If you ever find yourself in need - Open the box, read the letters, put them back in - or better yet? Write new letters, put them back in the box and then when the beer’s ready. Enjoy!
Couple puts the contents in the box and nails it shut
They are nailing it shut to make it a little harder to open.
