@futuremrste:  Brings a tear to my eye–I love it! It could work as either a reading or for your vows.

I’ve seen this reading used in ceremonies where the bride and groom read it to each other, alternating stanzas. It could be a prelude to the vows. Or you could just read it as part of your vows to him.

i would use it as part of my vows or maybe at the reception during the toasts/speeches.

Thats too funny…I was thinking the same question.  I say DO IT, but….prepare to fight back the tears, I cry everytime I read it.   I am currently emailing our officiant to ask him if it would be weird if I read this too him and he didn’t read anything back.  I don’t like the idea of a third party reading it, it’s just to personal for me that I would want to read it to him.  But, FH is really shy and the fact the he will be saying anything at all..ie with this ring, is a miracle.    I’m thinnking of reading it to him, then hugging him then our officaiant can segway into something else so it doesn’t seem odd that FH didn’t say anything back, maybe from there music can come in and we can give roeses to our parents.

Yes, I have had Brides & Grooms do reading that expressed their love for their new spouse or the guests at their wedding.
