Warning: More wedding stuff ahead. I feel bad about the fact that my brother is the only sibling of either Dave or I who isn’t involved in our wedding. My sister is my maid-of-honor, Dave’s brother is his best man, and my brother doesn’t have a “job” at all. There aren’t going to be enough people to require an usher, and I tend to think that most people are intelligent enough to figure out for themselves how to sign a guestbook. So, my sister suggested that perhaps I could have my brother do a reading.
Here’s the problem: I have no idea what on earth he could read. I thought of the love verse from 1st Corinthians in the Bible, but I think that’s totally overdone. Plus, I’m trying to keep the Bible/God/Jesus references to a minimum. I thought about maybe a poem, but my knowledge of poetry is limited at best, and honestly, every poem I can think of is so cheesy that it makes me cringe. So I’m putting out a request here: Any ideas? I’m guessing this is really going to be Sally’s forte, but I know a couple of you other girls who read this might have some suggestions. I need something that seems wedding-y (or at least has love-related overtones), but that won’t make me want to throw up and die. Translation: no Emily Dickinson. Help?
