You’re wedding is still a ways off. If you really want that reading I don’t think that anyone will fault you.

@Sugaree:  Unlesss your reading is something really obscure, odds are it’s been read at a wedding or two your guests have attended.  They won’t mind and probably won’t think of the specific one they heard it at.  If you like it and it’s meaningful to you, I’d still use it.

@Sugaree:  Four months is quite a while, I doubt it would be an issue but go with what you feel is right 🙂

@Sugaree:  You can still use that reading, most likely only the couple will notice. Think about it, do you remember any of the readings from the last few weddings you attended?

I agree with PPs that you should proceed with plans to use that if it’s meaningful to you.  But if you’d like another great option from children’s literature, check out The Little Prince.  We used the part about “taming” someone and it was very meaningful.  There are also some good excerpts from Winnie the Pooh if you’re a fan of his.

Oh god! What’s a reading? I KNEW I was forgetting things.

When does this get read? Who does it?

 

EEK!

@Sugaree:  I don’t see why you have to change this. the only people who will be in common at your wedding is the FI’s family. Otherwise, there will be different friends, coworkers, and your family at your wedding. So that’s a lot less people who know what your FBIL had at his wedding.
