Wedding build-up stress
We're getting married next month and as the date gets nearer it's getting both exciting and stressful at times. (My mum is currently recovering from a bad accident so I've been pretty fraught)
a few weeks ago we asked one of our ushers if he would do a reading during the ceremony. His instant reply was that he'd be uncomfortable if it had a religious theme. We informed him that it wasn't and said no more.
The other day by H2B emailed him the poem we'd picked and he replied saying he thought it was too difficult to 'perform' (it was on a top 20 list online - nothing too out there)
My H2B instantly backed him and says we should find something else. I'm really hurt because I chose the words thinking of him and feel that our short 20 min ceremony should be about us, not what someone else wants.
i know I'm being a bit stubborn, but it's just so important to me. The usher sent an alternative suggestion in the same message, but he has only seen us as a couple a handful of times, but my H2B wants to agree to that for an easy life
