We only did one reading and our pastor read it as part of the sermon. I don’t think it was weird at all!

We didn’t have any readings, so they’re not a must.

However, there is no reason a member of the bridal party couldn’t also do a reading. I’ve been to many weddings where a bridesmaid or groomsman did a reading.

It would not be weird at all if people in the bridal party did wedding readings. It would actually be less awkward, as they are already up there by the microphone.

If you need an example, watch Wedding Crashers – the sisters that are in the bridal party did readings 😉

We did two readings. One DHs grandma read and the second one my Maid/Matron of Honor read. She just handed her flowers over to the next girl and steped right up. It wasn’t weird at all and it flowed pretty well. Even though grandma was so nervous she skipped a whole line ;D

We’re not doing any readings. I find them to be the most boring part of a wedding… especially if it’s anything from Corinthians. Love is patient! Love is kind! Love is really repetitive! 

I have heard that reading at 3 weddings now, and it’s not even about romantic love. Hurrah for context…

We found two readings we like and are just having our officiant read them. Of course, our officiant is a friend and she’s never done this before, so we’re trying to make it as easy on her as possible, and that means not making her write a whole extended speech.
