So long ago I asked my dear friend to be a reader. She said yes, she is honored, yay! Then, fiance and I were talking that maybe we needed a 2nd reader. Well, without deciding, he asked one of his groomsmen’s wife if she would read. She is very shy, but said yes anyway.
In thinking about our short (20 minutes) ceremony and the fact that in addition to the traditional stuff, we are also going to do the Blessing of the Hands, we both kind of feel like we jumped the gun on asking the 2nd person to read. I really don’t think we need 2 readings and with her shyness, I think she may be relieved if we told her we didn’t need her to read. She hasn’t said anything about it since we asked her so I get the feeling that it’s not like she’s super excited about it or anything.
What do you bees think? Should we have her read? Are 2 readings too much for a short ceremony?
