Alternative Wedding Reading

Alternative Wedding Reading

If you are looking for a wedding reading and Shakespeare or traditional isn’t your thing, have a look outside the box for your alternative wedding reading: Song lyrics, children’s stories, movie quotes, contemporary poems, inspirational speeches, the list goes on.

Here is one of my favourite children’s stories, that could make a very romantic, alternative wedding reading.


Winnie The Pooh by A.A. Milne

“If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.” 

Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind.

“Pooh?” he whispered. “Yes, Piglet?” 

“Nothing,” said Piglet, taking Pooh’s hand. “I just wanted to be sure of you.” 

“We’ll be Friends Forever, won’t we, Pooh?” asked Piglet. 

“Even longer,” Pooh answered. “If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together… there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart… I’ll always be with you.” 


Head over to the wedding reading that we used for our ceremony in 2009 here.

Thanks for reading
