Looking for a French wedding reading
July 21, 2007 4:40 AM Subscribe
Getting married next week and need a French reading. We're bilingual but our ceremony is all in English. As acknowledgment of the French side of our culture (an as a concession to the French side of the family) we'd like to have a French reading as part of our ceremony. The only problem is that we don't know any appropriate French poetry or other nice words that could be read. The wedding's in a week and I'm starting to freak out a bit, although the worst thing that could happen is we skip the reading (deep breaths....)

A few details:
-we're not religious and prefer no mentions of god/jesus etc...
-our ceremony will be held outdoors in my parents' backyard
-we're not into really sappy love stuff and have decent senses of humor
-we don't want anything terribly long or too short, something that would take 1-2mins to deliver would be fine I think.
Ok, that's it, I hope you can help!
