Are you having special readings during your ceremony? How many are you having? Who have you asked to read them?

    We wanted to include all three of our kids (my son, her son, and future daughter-in-law). Our sons were always going to walk us down the aisle and stand as our best men. We finally decided a couple of weeks ago to have our FDIL do the one reading for the ceremony. She was thrilled we asked and I'm really looking forward to showing everyone that she is part of our family too.

    We haven't decided yet, but I would like my god mother to do one and my FH wants his sister to do one.

    No readings during the ceremony as far as I know. Just us and the officiant speaking.

    We have three Scripture readings! FH's uncle is doing the Old Testament reading, and my aunt (who I always say is my second mom!) is doing the New Testament reading. The priest is reading the Gospel reading.

    I plan to ask my godparents to participate in some way, either a reading or a prayer. I am still working on how the ceremony will go, since I am not familiar with the order of a Baptist wedding, but I'm hoping they will be able to be involved.

    We are not having a reading. Our officiant will be putting together a talk though.

    We considered it because we have lost so many close to us. We were going to have someone read their names and then do a reading, but our officiant has that covered

    Nothing like that has been planned, but if I know our officiant (my cousin) he’ll have some deep words of insight for us during the ceremony

    We aren't having any readings outside of what the officiant is doing.

    My big brother read a short poem. It was such a wonderful, sweet moment.

    We will not have one unless I decide to have our daughter read something, but I don't want to pressure her so I think I may leave it at no one

    Our officiant chose and performed our reading after meeting with us to get a feel of what suited our love.

    We still haven't decided if we are doing any readings at our ceremony.
