Wedding Ceremony Hints & Tips: How to choose readers for your wedding ceremony.
Using a Celebrant means you have the ceremony you want, designed around you and there are many decisions to make.
I work closely with my couples to discuss all the options available and some which are just wholly unique to them. It is a ‘construction’ – we start by sharing ideas, bouncing them around and it all comes together over a period of time.
One of the things that my couples always have to think about is how to choose people to read.
Maybe it could be giving family or friends a special part to play. Maybe it is a reading received from someone who can’t be there but could be read by someone else. Maybe it is one of your smaller guests who wants to play a role. The possibilities are endless!
The first thing to think about is whether that person feels comfortable reading. Perhaps they would they like to write something to read?
Do you want to choose what they read or hand the decision over to them?
Jen & Robert’s Aunt had written a fabulous poem, Pam Ayres style, which was absolutely brilliant and had all the guests and bride and groom laughing.
This year Theresa & Paul’s bridesmaid, Terri, has written a beautiful poem which will be read as a surprise.
If you put ‘wedding readings’ into Google, there are literally thousands of possibilities. On my blog, I have added several possibles choosing categories such as funny, traditional, alternative, spiritual etc. The choice is yours!
