As you can see, wine comes in many different sized bottles beyond the standard 750ml that is widely available. A Magnum bottle holds 1.5 L of wine, or the equivalent of 2 standard bottles. This makes it great for larger dinner parties or get together. But look just how big they can get - the Nebuchadnezzar holds 15L or 20 standard bottles. Now that is a party, but good luck trying to pour it!
Need a bigger box than a standard Magnum? We can make custom boxes, just measure your bottle and contact us for a quote.
Our new Keepsake Ceremony Wine Boxes are a welcomed and fresh new tradition that couples will enjoy long after the “I Do’s” are given. While one option is for the couple to use it as part of their wedding wine box ceremony, there is another option that will include all of your wedding guests…
One perfect way to commemorate that special day is to have your loved ones write you and your significant other notes to share in the future. They can be a funny story, a favorite memory, a toast, well wishes or whatever they desire.
Though your guests may not be physically present when you decide to open the box (unless you have a Keepsake Ceremony Wine Box Opening party – and who doesn’t love a reason to party!!), they will be remembered by their sweet, sarcastic, heart-felt, or silly words. What a wonderful way to reminisce about your wedding day and those that were able to celebrate with you!!
Meet Stacie Hatton, the voice of Artificer... no really, she is most likely the person you will speak with when you call or email. Stacie is the head honcho of our delightful customer service experiences. She is also the director of quality control, shipping, human resources, office management, and most recently, the stylist of our ceremony wine box photographs. Insane, right? Not only does she make it easy for you to create an amazing gift, she meticulously inspects every product before it's packed and shipped to you. She's also the reason our wood shop is so organized and probably the tidiest you'll find.
We sat down with Stacie for a quick Q&A... then a customer called ;)
What do you like best about working here? Definitely working with our amazing customers creating one-of-a-kind gifts, but also working with such a wonderful team!!
What type of work did you do prior to joining Artificer? Executive Assistant to Presidents & Vice-Presidents of major corporations.
What’s the most memorable thing you have created for someone? We created a large box with one lid that had a beautiful engraving of a tree with a swing on it and dates that were specific to the couple. The inside compartments consisted of many different sizes specific to the customer’s request for gifts he was giving to his wife. It was magnificent!
What do you do in your spare time? I love to read, take pics (check out my Instagram: stacie_in_pursuit), play with our pups, and spend time with those I love and adore.
What’s your hidden talent? Cutting hair. I’ve never been to cosmetology school, but after watching hairdressers cut my hair all my life, I’ve been able to cut other people’s hair. At least the brave ones who allow me to ;)
What app do you use most? Pinterest and Instagram… are there any others?!
What do you listen to while you work (music, podcast, etc.)? Many different genres of music and comedy, but when I’m in the shipping department, it’s gangsta rap all the way! In the words of Chazz Michael Michaels, “it gets the people going”.
If you could eat only one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? It would have to be chicken! You can make it a bazillion different ways and never tire of it.
Favorite place you have visited? By far, the British Isles. They have the greenest of grass and the bluest of skies. The history that envelops the country assists in my imagining of a simpler and more beautiful time (thanks, Jane Austen!), while also bringing the harsh realization of that period.
What color shirt would you wear if you had to wear one color every day? Definitely, gray. You could put literally ANY color accessories with it!
Favorite childhood toy? Growing up in the age of the “Cabbage Patch Kids”, this was by far my favorite childhood toy. I can remember the frenzy that Xavier Roberts cast upon its consumers and thought I’d never get one. Luckily, I had the best grandma in the world! I still have mine and she looks almost as new as the day I opened her that Christmas morning.
What super power would you like to have? Chameleon - to be able to hide in plain view would be so much fun!

One of the funnest charitable days of the year is here and we’re super excited to be participating! (Yes, we know ‘funnest’ is not a word, but isn’t it fun to say? ;) To see so many people coming together to make a difference and raise money and awareness for kids in need at home and around the world just warms our hearts.
Here’s a little background on Red Nose Day… In 1985, Comic Relief launched in the United Kingdom with the goal of using comedy to raise money and help those leading really tough lives. The goal? Creating a just world free from poverty. The very first Red Nose Day was held in 1988 with millions of people participating in its first year. Since 2015, Red Nose Day in America has raised over $60 million to help kids and young people most in need and over $1 billion globally in the past 25 years. Red Nose Day positively impacted the lives of 2,659,642 children just in 2016!!
So what does your donation do? It provides meals for kids, life-saving vaccines, a safe place for kids to learn and play, clean water, access to education, and a safe place for kids to sleep. Some of their charity partners include the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, charity: water, Feeding America, and Save the Children.

Hitched By Heather was featured in a segment titled Wedding Features Not to Neglect on Let's Talk Live on WJLA. Among other tips and awesome products, Heather featured WineforaWedding's Classic Trio Anniversary Box.
Your ceremony can showcase not only the old traditions, but some new ones you can pass down to your children. My current favorite new tradition for ceremonies is the Anniversary Box. You can add your favorite wine or scotch, a letter to one another and other fun keepsakes from your wedding day, like a tie to open on your anniversary.
This box has three different slots for three different anniversaries. This is super fun because you can be reminded your exact emotions on your wedding day for more than one special occasion.

We are always on the lookout for artists to collaborate with and a few weeks ago, while on Etsy, a piece of artwork really caught our eye. It was a stunning design of intricate flowers and leaves winding, twisting and growing together. But the truly amazing part is that it was hand-cut out of paper. That’s right, hand-cut… with an x-acto knife (makes my hand hurt thinking about it).
The phenomenal design and craftsmanship sent off an alarm, you know the ding, the ah-ha bell… so, I messaged the artist, Sarah Trumbauer(a fine artist, highly skilled in the tradition ofscherenschnitte), telling her of our wine boxes and how I thought her amazing art would be the perfect fit for creating an incredible wine box wedding / anniversary gift.
Sarah agreed and so it began—a collaboration to create a new papercut work of art specifically designed for our unique Anniversary Wine Boxes. Together, we wanted the artwork and wine box to symbolize the moment when love begins, how it grows over time, and lasts for an eternity. Sarah was kind enough to document her process so we could see the work of art take shape. Her meticulous detail and intricacy is just exquisite.
Meet the newest member of the family, the “Eternal Love” Anniversary Wine Box.Not only is it an incredible work of art with an inspiring quote, you can also personalize it with the couple’s names and wedding date. And, of course, it’s designed to open on future anniversaries. Enjoy!
