- Wedding: October 2011
FI and I are both picking one secular reading apiece for the wedding, since we are not religious. He already picked his reading; it is a little snippet from The Hicthhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (the movie, not the book) where Arthur is talking about the question of “life, the universe, and everything,” and how it relates to the girl he’s grown to love.
I’m contemplating using song lyrics as my reading. I was thinking either the lyrics to Brandi Carlile’s “The Story” or Ingrid Michaelson’s “The Way I Am.” (You can click the links to read the lyrics, if you are not familiar with those songs.)
I think The Way I Am lyrics are really nice, because they sounds more like a promise or vow. But the lyrics to The Story really get me everytime…plus, I am planning to walk down the aisle to a piano version of that song. If you could take a moment & let me know which you think would be a better reading, I’d appreciate it!
