Durinng our ceremony my dad will be doing a reading, we were given a set from the registrar(person that will marry us) to choose from. But, not many are short (my dads not great with speaking to large groups of people). As he is writing his own speech i thought it would be best to find something . Also will be much easier as he is very emotional at weddings.
Are there any you would recommend?

Not sure what you’re looking for but a friend of mine had this read at her wedding – it’s from the book Tuesdays with Morrie:
“I’ve learned this much about marriage. You get tested. You find out who you are, who the other person is, and how you accommodate or don’t.” (p.149)
“…there are a few rules I know to be true about love and marriage: If you don’t respect the other person, you’re gonna have a lot of trouble. If you don’t know how to compromise, you’re gonna have a lot of trouble. If you can’t talk openly about what goes on between you, you’re gonna have a lot of trouble. And if you don’t have a common set of values in life, you’re gonna have a lot of trouble. Your values must be alike.” (p.149)
“I think marriage is a very important thing to do, and you’re missing a hell of a lot if you don’t try it.” (p.149)
