Custom wine boxes are perfect for the increasingly popular “Love Letter and Wine Box” ceremony tradition. If you have not heard of this unique trend as of yet, it involves the bride and groom writing sentimental letters to each other prior to the ceremony. Then, the couple seals the letters with a bottle of wine in a beautifully adorned box at the actual ceremony. The box will then be opened on a special anniversary (1yr, 5yrs, etc.) and the letters will be read while the couple sips on glasses of wine. Definitely a fun alternative to the traditional unity candle and sand pouring ceremonies. Take a look at some lovely wedding wine boxes below for inspiration – they also make for great wedding gifts!

I have been waiting patiently for the Petite Cupcakes & Events shop to open and I must say that it was definitely worth the wait. I stopped in a couple of weeks ago to try the Southern Wedding cupcakes and they were absolutely amazing. The rich almond buttercream frosting atop a scrumptious moist almond cake definitely hit the spot!
During my visit to the shop, I discovered that Petite Cupcakes & Events also specializes in wedding cupcake favors and towers. Choose from a wide variety of flavors like Velvety Red Velvet, Boston Cream Pie, and Smores Galore. Each delectable cupcake sells for $2.25 with a special price of $2.00 each if you buy a half or full dozen. The shop also rents out cupcake towers to display these lovely treats at your wedding or event.
Take a few minutes to stop by the Petite Cupcakes & Events shop to try the tasty cupcakes for yourself. Visit www.petite-cupcakes.com for flavor descriptions and shop information.
