Help! Please give me some origional readings!!!

Hi ladies!

I am really finding it hard to find unique, not soppy, or silly readings. Honestly I have spent hours on the web searching (and have 3 books too) but they are all so popular. I would love something that everyone hasn't heard a a dozen weddings already!

I can't be the only one to want something a bit different, so pleeeease give me some ideas!!! I like the idea of a nice poem, or a classic movie extract - nothing too cheesy.


Happy Christmas!


  • Hi

    We had this issue as well. Have you thought about using song lyrics? You can look them up on the web and cut the length to suit what you want for the reading. We used Bette Midler's 'The Rose' for the reading in our ceremony. We felt the sentiment worked with what we wanted to say and then we played it later at the reception. At one point we were considering Snow Patrol's 'Chasing Cars' as the lyrics read really well.

    Hope this helps.
