An aunt wanted to surprise the bride and groom with a special reading. I just assumed it would be something she composed or at least be ONE reading she found and liked. She went on the internet and combined three completely unrelated readings together into one huge, giant reading. Actually, her reading took longer than the entire ceremony.
When you have loving, well-intentioned relatives who want to “surprise” you with a reading, it might be wise to have a mom or maid of honor or someone you trust check it for you. That way the reading is still a surpise, but you won’t be blind-sided by the reading that wouldn’t end!
