Wedding Ceremony - Catholic Weddings - Catholic Readings


Does anyone know of any nice wedding blessings or poems that can be used as a reading at a catholic wedding? Any besides the Apachi one and the one about Love being "this" and not "that"

 

Here is a list of readings I got from a book called Reflections on Marriage (ISBN: 0-915388-37-5 if you're interested in buying it). You'll just need to get out your bible to read them to see what you like :)

Call your parish center and ask them if they provide the "Together for Life" booklet.  In it is a pretty good number of reading selections.  There are two different books - one for a ceremony and one for a ceremony with a mass.  If you need any other info, let me know.  I am the wedding coordinator for my Catholic church.
