Your wedding ceremony is arguably the most special and intimate moment of your life, let alone wedding day! A time to celebrate your love and commitment to one another, and yet you're sick of reading the same suggested readings over and over!
Here are some suggestions that are not often seen in weddings but are worth considering.
"The Owl and the Pussycat" by Edward Lear - This whimsical poem is a lighthearted and fun addition to any ceremony, and its simple and playful language is sure to bring a smile to everyone's face.
"I Like You" by Sandol Stoddard Warburg - A sweet and simple tribute to love, this reading is a wonderful choice for a wedding ceremony that focuses on the joy and happiness of the day.
"The Sun Has Given Me a Countenance" by Pablo Neruda - This beautiful poem expresses the speaker's love for their partner and the happiness they bring to their life.
"The Vow" by Unknown - A simple, but powerful reading that reiterates the promises made to one another during the wedding ceremony.
"The One" by Unknown - This touching reading expresses the idea that each person is unique, and that finding someone to share your life with is a true gift.
No matter which reading you choose, make sure it speaks to you both and truly reflects the love you feel for one another. Remember, your wedding ceremony is a special moment that you will cherish for years to come (it was my fave moment of my own for sure), so make it unforgettable and meaningful... there is no such thing as too soppy in this setting!
