Did Robert Fulgham really write this short reading?

There's a sweet and commoner-than-I-expected wedding reading that's frequently attributed to Robert Fulgham. It starts "You have known each other from the first glance of acquaintance to this point of commitment..." and is sometimes referred to by the title "Union". Did he actually write it? [more inside]

Suggestions for a wedding reading?

I've been asked to select and read something non-biblical at a family wedding. Aside from the standard Shakespeare sonnets, I'm stumped. I'd love some meaningful contemporary suggestions (something from David Foster Wallace perhaps?). [more inside]

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....) [more inside]

What is an appropriate modern love poem for a reading at a wedding?

I've been asked to give a reading at a friend's wedding, so I'm looking for a poem that would be appropriate. Ideally, it should be modern (written after 1900) and sweet, but not sexual, religious, schmaltzy, or emetic. Most suggestions online are variations of Maya Angelou's "Touched By An Angel". I found the previous two AskMe questions on this topic helpful, and I have some ideas, but I'm hoping to generate a few more. [more inside]
