What wedding readings are you doing and where do they come from?
This is something that you’d think a voracious reader would have considered more deeply, but I actually haven’t thought about it much.
I’m interested in religious and non-religious readings alike. If you can think of authors or books that generally have good quotations about love I’d like those suggestions too.
The ceremony is very important to me and I expect to spend some time considering these things.

I had two readings–my husband’s godmother and my godfather did them. They aren’t religious, but I really identified with both of them and was so glad I did them. The first was “The Art of Marriage” (short version) by Wilferd Peterson. The second was “Union” by Robert Fulghum.

We used “Union” by Robert Fulghum as well and so many guests told me how much they loved it afterwards. I found readings by going through the bee’s ceremonies. I especially loved Mrs. Jellyfish.

@LGenz: Union is lovely. Thank you for pointing it out. I find that many typical wedding readings are too flowery to suit, but I really like the tone of this one.
@Pomapoo: The Art of Marriage is excellent as well. I really like how both of these are accessible to everyone. I am an English geek, but I don’t want to geek out too much at my wedding, because I want everyone there to enjoy listening to the ceremony.
