My fiance and I have each selected a friend to be a reader. We are having a catholic ceremony outside of mass. Therefore, there are two readings, plus the prayer for the faithful that we can have readers for.
My mom has been so helpful and I wanted to ask her to do one of the readings. She and my dad are paying for 95% of the wedding and she has done a lot for me. Is it taboo to ask her to do a reading at the wedding and not his mother? Is it not a true roll of the MOB?
Just looking for some insight here! Thanks 🙂

Yes of course! If you want her to be a bigger part of your day then I would for sure have her read one!

We had my dad and my SIL to do readings. His parents were not involved… I never heard that it bothered them, but at the end of the day, I know my dad was very moved to be asked that question, and we asked his sister at the last minute because we were so happy she could make it to the wedding (she couldn’t until the last minute) and DH and her are close. It made sense.
Do what makes sense for both of you – for us, I handled my family and he handled his.
