If your officiant will allow you to include your favorite readings in your ceremony, it’s never too early to start thinking about your choices. There are romantic readings that range from biblical and torah scripture to the Anne Lamott, David Sedaris and Augusten Burroughs, (of “Running with Scissors” fame). One of my bride’s readings was a note that her fiance had scrawled on the bathroom mirror in lipstick; the love and hope (and yes, the sacrifice of “Love That Red”) told her all she needed to know about that man.

Their invitations were in red, by the way!

(And of course, you’re welcome to my list of readings if you just email me!)
