So I know some people will scoff at me for this, but I really want to include a passage from Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight (or any of the other three books in the series) as one of my ceremony readings. The book — and the series as a whole — means a lot to both my fiance and I, and I just figured it would be really awesome to allude to that in our wedding. (As an aside — yes, I realise that it’s not Pulitzer material, and I don’t care; it’s a wonderful story, and it expresses a lot of what my fiance and I feel in our relationship.)
My question for the hive is this: do any of you superb individuals have any ideas for passages we could use as readings? I’m re-reading the entire series for the third or fourth time (currently on Twilight) for the purpose of trying to find some, but I was hoping you bees might have some ideas, too!
Thanks, all! Keep up that wedding planning!

i found this link: http://letterstotwilight.wordpress.com/2009/06/23/a-twilight-themed-wedding/
It was suggested you might use these as your vows… It’s a little choppy though
Do you really have any idea how important you are to me? Any concept at all of how much I love you? Look after my heart — I’ve left it with you. And the sound of your heart. It’s the most significant sound in my world. Tell me what you want, and you can have it. All of my best nights have happened since I met you. You love me more than I deserve.

@laurajane: Thanks! I’ll definitely check that site out! =) The quotes seem like they’re a little short for a reading, but maybe we can work them in somehow…! ^.^

I dont think there is anything wrong with it at all! Its YOUR wedding and if it means something to the both of you, then do it! Plus, I don’t think people will realize its from Twilight haha.

on a side note, I went and looked at the link that was posted above and at the bottom of the article was this
“Don’t ever do this for your wedding. Don’t ever ever ever ever ever mirror your wedding after a book about vampires. Ever. If you do decide not to take our advice, use the following art board for inspiration. Do not google “twilight-themed wedding inspiration” DON’T DO IT! You will regret it….”
So naturally I googled it, and out of general curisoity started flicking through the results. it took me about half an hour to realise what am I doing, i’ve never even read twilight or seen the movies. LOL!!
Sorry I dont have any quote inspiration for you, but if its important to you and your FI then go for it.
I’m having a fire themed wedding, not a huge theme really. But we will be having a fire appliance as our transport and the cake topper will be fire fighters. We are also still thinking of being married in our turn out gear instead of traditional wedding attire (but we havent fully decided that yet). People have told me it goes to prove I’m a pyro and have no life. But I’m not a pyro, I don’t light fires, I put them out. We decided to include it because it is what brought us together. Without the fire brigade we would not have met, and i would not have my family and our children (which is my life) so why not honour that in our wedding!!!
