    Default wedding ceremony readings needed

    My sister is getting married in a few weeks and they've asked me to do a reading. Originaly I was going to do the irish blessing, but i didn't really want to do that one. I told them I have a great one...but i re-read it and I don't think its fitting for the event.

    I've been looking on line, but can't seem to find anything

    If anyone can think of cool reading that doesn't have the religous overtones let me know

    thanks

    looking for non religious? I have a few for you, and also a few unconventional as well.

    this is a kids song sung by davy Jones that I am recommending for my cousins wedding....so sweet




    and the lyrics to the Magnetic Fields "The Book of Love" (is long and boring) are pretty cool too!

    oops! pressed send instead of preview! here's a few suestions for yourself or others in the party

    anyway....I've always wanted to attend a wedding where the bride and groom read the lyrics to John Prine's 'In Spite of Ourselves' to each other...that would be a rawkin' weddin'!

    You may also want to look up the Apache wedding blessing, which I believe is from the Jimmy Stewart movie Broken Arrow.

    The lyrics to Woody Guthries song "From Here on In' would make a good wedding reading f(or the couple)

    Try to find the passage from The Velveteen Rabbit where it describes love as the thing that makes us real...and try not to cry

    there's alway Oriah Mountain Dreamers "The Invitation"
    for classic poetry and prose
    Robert Frost "Master Speed" which ends "life is only life evermore, together, wing to wing and oar to oar"

    Thomas a Kempis "What is Love"
    look up the love poems of Pablo Neruda
    Kahlil Gibran "on marriage'---over used in my opinion
    ee cummings especially 'love is thicker than forget" "i carry your heart with me" and "somewhere i have never traveled' are also good for weddings
    Robert Louis Stevenson "Wedding Prayer" a classic
    WH AUden "Tell me the Truth about Love"
    and James Kavanaugh " To Love is not to Possess"

    look up the writings of Ranier Maria Rilke, Anne Morrow Lindbegh,

    give the tried and true a shot if you're nervous
    Shakespeare sonnets
    Walt Whitman "Song of the Open Road"
    Yeats
    Robert Browning and Elizabeth Barrett Browning
    and for the really short Emily Dickinson especially "Hope is the thing with feathers"

    good luck and have fun with it...congrats to your family
