Temple Time Capsule Printables

Temple Time Capsules Display

When I was in Young Women, I remember putting together these Temple Time Capsules. We got to choose our future wedding dress, colors, flowers, the whole nine-yards, but most importantly the temple we wanted to get married in. In our church, we believe that we can be married for eternity by the sealing power of the Priesthood. This can only be done in one of the many LDS Temples throughout the world. (To learn more about it, visit LDS.org).

I was so excited about the Temple Time Capsules, and had so much fun doing it. I even waited until the day I got engaged to open it! It was fun to see the style and the wedding ideas I picked back when I was 12-13 years old and how much it had changed over the years. I thought it would be fun to bring this back and do the same activity with the Young Women in our ward. They had a lot of fun and got to look through magazines for wedding ideas, picked a Modest wedding dress, write down the qualities in their future husband, as well as the qualities they wanted to develop in themselves.

Here are the printables we used for the activity. I thought we could do this activity in one night, but you will definitely need more than an hour to finish this project. There is no wrong way to do this activity. It is a night for the girls to plan out their future wedding, and to remind them about the importance of a temple marriage.

Things you’ll need:

-Empty food storage can (or a container like Tupperware, etc.)

-Wedding Magazines for wedding inspiration

-Pictures of (modest) wedding dresses – I printed my from online websites like Margene’s bridal

-Artificial roses (Dollar Store is great! Just clip off rose buds from their bundles)

-Wedding favor bubbles

-Tea candle (another Dollar Store purchase)

-Ensign articles about marriage (this fulfills the “Instruction Plan” in your ingredients list). Ever Love Design picked out a great set of articles to give the girls:

Divorce” April 2007
Our Solemn Responsibilities” November 1991
Beware of Pride” May 1998

Everyday, I’m grateful that I can be with my husband and my family for eternity. It has been one of the greatest decisions I’ve made and one of the best days of my life. What a great blessing it is to have Temples on the earth.

  1. Is that the Los Angeles temple? Is that the one you chose when you were young? I used to live in San Diego, and I think that one is gorgeous. I’ve also visited (outside) the Salt Lake City one and it is beautiful!

    1. I got married at the Oakland Temple, which is the one I picked back in my teens. It was pretty awesome to still bave that same mind set. They are all beautiful! I love the San Diego one (and the one in Salt Lake City is a given)! 🙂

  2. It doesn’t seem like the sugardoodle links are working, and I’ve been to their website and can’t find the ingredients printable. Do you happen to have that link? Thank you in advance!

  3. Had no idea you were LDS member, I’m s glad I found this post, my wife will be very pleased when I tell her what I found. By the way, thanks for sharing your ideas.

  4. Thank you thank you thank you! I remember doing this as a beehive and I loved it. I opened my can when I was engaged and it was so great to read and see all the things I had already decided for myself. My husband fit the description like a T!
