- Wedding: March 2014 - Chicago, IL
There were some parts of it I thought were ok, but mostly to me the word choices seemed odd. I especially wasn’t fond of throwing in “if my boo commited murder and told me he didn’t I’d totally believe him” and 2 paragraphs on torture. It was weird to me.

I think it’s a little too offbeat and too long. I like the poem “having a coke with you” as something offbeat in a wedding.

It sounds really, really awkward to me and I tend to have a pretty high threshold for stuff like that.

@goingtotherooftopoflove: I think I’d have a big “what the hell is this?” look on my face.

I’m all for “offbeat” wedding readings. I’m planning on having a very odd reading by my favorite author, Neil Gaiman in my wedding: “The Day the Saucers Came.” It’s long, rambling, kind of random, and it isn’t until the very end that it makes sense. I don’t care. I’m going to incorporate it and make it work.
If you have the same attitude of “I like it, so I’m doing it” then the reading is fine.
It really boils down to you and your Fiance. Even if half of us find it weird and half of us find it awesome, at the end of the day it’s really down to you two and what you want in your wedding. You could definitely tweak it a little bit, edit it to flow a little faster, but as others have mentioned it doesn’t exactly discuss romantic love, as most wedding readings do, but discuss a love just as deep and meaningful. However, I think it’s adorable and totally quirky.

So… it sounds like i need to rethink 😛
I guess it depends on if you know us or not, but when It hink about it the majority of the guests will know Chris or I individually, not really as a couple. In fact, many will be meeting us together for the first time at the wedding! So, it seems like this is going to be a tad too much. Le sigh, back to the drawing board. Thanks everyone.
