My fiance and I are going to use some readings from literature.  There are SOOOO many to choose from!

Ahhh, you can do ANYTHING! If there’s a song you love, someone can read the lyrics; a favorite poem; a passage from a novel; a monologue from a play or a film; a passage from a children’s book; anything that speaks to you as a couple & inspires you. 

Do a search of your bookshelf, MP3 collection, DVD collection, and these boards – so many of the bees have found fantastic readings and posted them here.  🙂

Good luck choosing & keep us posted!

I like the idea of using a meaningful poem or song lyric.

I kind of like this one (and not just because it has “bee” in it!)  Wink

 

From the sermons of Jeremy Taylor:

Marriage is a school and exercise of virtue: here kindness is spread abroad, and love is united and made firm as a centre. The state of marriage hath in it the labour of love, and the delicacies of friendship, the blessing of society, and the union of hands and hearts. It hath in it less of beauty, but more of safety, than the single life; it hath more care, but less danger; it is more merry, and more sad; is fuller of sorrows, and fuller of joys; it lies under more burdens, but it is supported by all the strengths of love and charity, and those burdens are delightful. Marriage is the mother of the world, and preserves kingdoms, and fills cities, and churches, and heaven itself. Celibacy, like the fly in the heart of an apple, dwells in a perpetual sweetness, but sits alone, and is confined and dies in singularity; but marriage, like the useful bee, builds a house and gathers sweetness from every flower, and labours and unites into societies and republics, and sends out colonies, and feeds the world with delicacies, and obeys the king, and keeps order, and exercises many virtues, and promotes the interest of mankind, and is that state of good things to which God hath designed the present constitution of the world.
