I've been asked to do a reading at a friend's wedding this summer.
Oh, and I have to select the reading. Yeah.
I'm totally up for this, but it's a bit of a challenge. We Sweets are not "wedding people," so I don't have a catalog of romantic verses (Biblical or otherwise) on hand.
Another problem is, I haven't even met the bride and I haven't seen my friend, the groom, in about 5 years. I know (at least the last time I talked to him) that he was very religious (Christian), so I assume he still is, and I assume she is, too.
Still, it's going to be an outdoor wedding, I think. The groom is very "outdoorsy" (no doubt what he would put on an on-line dating profile if he hadn't already snagged a wife).
The reading does not have to be from the Bible. Poems and prose are game, too.
No cussin'. No smut. (I know, I know... no juicy stuff from Song of Songs.)
