I gathered a few favorites here, if you happen to be debating between readings for your wedding, or looking for some nice quotes to add to a wedding speech.
In lieu of a sand or candle ceremony, Brett and I decided to do a "Blessing of the Hands" ceremony. I first saw this done when watching the Bachelorette wedding of Ashley and J.P. I cried like a baby during this ceremony (seriously, it was embarrassing), and knew that I had to have that at my wedding. Brett and I had our mom's read the blessing. You can see a video of this ceremony (not ours) here. The Blessing of the Hands starts at 4:40, but just watch the whole video - seriously, so beautiful.
1 Corinthians 13 is used at most weddings (including ours). But I think there is a reason it is such a classic.
This next one may be too short for its own reading, but would lovely to incorporate onto a program:
This last one is one of my favorites - Brett's cousin, who he is close with, read it during our wedding ceremony.
Are there any readings you would add to this list? Leave them in the comments!
Have a lovely day!
