Mi fiance is doing this and I LOVE the idea! He has done a ton of reading on relationships and marriage, and wanted to pull together quotes and ideas from all those books into a description of what he believes love and marriage to mean. I can’t wait to hear it!

Not weird at all, in fact I think it is immensely thoughtful and touching. Sure, there are a lot of nice, romantic, funny, sweet, etc,etc,  readings out there… but anyone could read those. In writing these yourselves you’re creating another personal touch that is extremely intimate and lovely.

I think you  two decided on a fantastic idea.

I am doing a mixture of personalized readings and things I have found on my literary travels. I have people coming that celebrate all types of beliefs. FI and I personally are just spiritual people, so for us it is approriate to incorporate different spiritual readings into our ceremony plus our own writings.
