Our ceremony will work in a similar way to most weddings – the usual processional, followed by welcome and greeting from the Dean. We’ll then have a reading or two, a brief homily, exchange of vows, exchange of rings, and so on. But this brings me to a BIG question – what readings should we do? The Groom has expressed an interest that our wedding not be so “cookie cutter,” but I pointed out that most wedding readings come from the Bible, and there’s really only so many to choose from!
Aww. Book pages shaped like a heart!
Readings we have already voted down:
- Love is patient, love is kind (1 Corinthians 13:4-8a) Why? Because I’ve heard it at just about every single wedding I've ever attended.
- My Beloved is like a gazelle (Song of Songs) – because it makes me giggle. I don’t know whose wedding featured this reading, all I remember is at the rehearsal giggling madly over the gazelle line.
