    I’ve only been to a handful or so of weddings, but I have heard it once this past fall at a cousin’s wedding.

    Eh, I feel like if it’s something that means something to you then who cares if it’s overdone? Your wedding is about you 🙂 Use it if you like! I, personally, have never heard it.

    I performed a wedding where this was the reading, but other than that, no. If you like it, use it. It’s pretty great.

    I only know about it being done on here, I’ve never actually heard someone use it.  Probably because most of weddings I’ve been to have been in a church, and they use biblical readings.  The few that have not been in a church, I’ve never heard them use this reading.

    So I’d say…no, it’s not overdone.

    @queencharlotte04:  We’re using quotes from “The Little Prince” and Futurama.  I think as long as the ceremony is meaningful to the couple, it shouldn’t matter.

    My best friend is using it in her wedding next spring, but if it means something to you and yours, don’t worry about other people

    Never heard of it at a wedding.  go for it!  Even if others have heard it before, if it is something that has meaning for you, then who cares? 

    With the Corinthians, I am not using it because it doesn’t hold any specific meaning for me (more than any other reading) and it is overdone.  But if it held very special meaning for me, I would use it not matter if it was overdone or not.

    It was among the sample readings given to us by our venue.  I’ve heard it at two ceremonies I can think of.  HOWEVER, these weddings were in 2000.

    @queencharlotte04:  I have never seen this done and never heard of it being done. Hope that helps!
