I would talk to your Fiance, decide what you want and where the line is.  If you don’t want readings, then tell both no.   If you want to please both, then do both.   I would either include both or none if I were in your shoes.

If I were you, I would do the catholic readings AND the/a Hindu reading. Would it reeeally upset or offend you? Looking at the whole picture, it would be very meaningful for your FI’s mom, meaningful for your family- and it would only take 15 minutes-ish!

I say, if the rest of the day is how YOU want it, give a little and make your parents and future Mother-In-Law happy, especially since it’ll only take a few minutes 🙂

Just my 2 cents!

@recipe12: coming from a catholic, i want to tell you that that really sucks. PP hit the nail on the head – you guys need to draw a line with Future Mother-In-Law. contributions and suggestions are only that, the marriage is about you and your fiancee coming together and there’s not much togetherness in someone outside of your union barring a reading from your religion. this is a battle i’d fight. this is an interfaith marriage and the ceremony should reflect it! a simple “we thought about your suggestion, but for our ceremony we will be including both readings so that we are both represented.” and that’s final! if she wants to throw a tantrum about it, that’s just her being a selfish brat.
