Message in a Bottle

by - November 13, 2009

A couple in Oregon have given me a really neat idea for if I ever find Mr. Right and decide to get married.

When Megan and Chris Walkup got married in 2007, friends and family wrote out wedding wishes and put them inside bottles along with other special items. Then the bottles were taken out on the Pacific and dropped over the side of a boat. In the two years following, Megan and Chris have gotten back the contents of about five bottles. The most recent discovery was 90 miles away from their home. The bottle had a dollar bill wrapped in a ribbon and a lucky penny, along with a hand-written wish and instructions to mail it all to the couple with the enclosed envelope.

I think the concept of this idea could work for lots of different occassions, but of course the joining of two lives is really special. Just think of the memories Megan and Chris experienced as they read the wishes and got to hold the treasures each bottle offered, and I imagine the experience was comparable to renewing their vows of forever love.
