Some of my best friends are getting married, and they have asked my husband and I to give a reading during the ceremony. Help us find the perfect reading. Difficulty level: Must be around 5 minutes long.
We've searched all over the internet, and we've found a ton of almost-helpful posts here on ask.mefi (this one comes closest to being helpful
), but nothing is long enough. We'll handle splitting it into parts so my husband and I each read part, but we just can't figure out how to fill five full minutes.
Details: The couple are fun-loving, relaxed, outdoorsy, travel-loving, sci-fi/fantasy loving, cool tech-geeky people. The ceremony will be relatively casual and small, and will be outdoors on a beach.
Any readings from religious texts or with religious or spiritual references would be seen as strange, if not highly inappropriate. Humor would have to be of the dry, witty variety. Humorous veiled sexual references are okay, but nothing too dirty or overt (kids will be present).
Can't wait to hear your suggestions!
