Choosing a romantic reading for your wedding is one of the most exciting parts to planning your special day. It’s also one of the more memorable moments at any wedding ceremony for both yourselves, as the bridal couple, as well as for all your wedding guests.
In the past, wedding readings were typically selected from poems, religious passages or other traditional literature. Over recent years, a new type of genre for wedding readings has become increasingly popular among many quirky bridal couples; reading extracts from children’s books. Many of today’s fun-loving couples prefer this choice over the more traditional or religious readings, when looking for something that reflects their playful spirit.
Cute, deeply sentimental and oh-so-romantic wedding readings from children’s books allow you and your partner to highlight your fun whimsical and quirky side. One of the many reasons these readings are so popular today, is due to their light heartedness. So, if you are looking for creative ways to show off who you truly are as a couple, then a reading from a children’s book is the perfect way to do this!
