Weddings are not just a platform to celebrate a union of a couple, they are also the best setting for sharing lessons on love, life, friendship, loyalty, and commitment – and the perfect way to do this is through readings. Some couples may prefer to skip readings on their wedding day and jump right to their written vows, but we highly recommend not to.
Readings are a pleasant way for your nearest and dearest (a family member or a friend) to honour and impart their good wishes to you and your partner. They are sentimental and heartfelt – something that you can never have enough of on your big day. The right moment during the wedding ceremony for the wedding reading could vary and could be right after the processional or just before the bride and groom exchange the wedding vows.
Here is the collection of junior bridesmaid dresses for your little bridesmaid who likes Winnie the Pooh.
Choosing the right reading...
A wedding reading is usually a poem, a bible verse, an excerpt from a book or an essay, or a passage, that is typically read by a member of the entourage or someone dear to the bride and groom. Readings can also be original and personally written, but it should be noted that the piece should not be too revealing that it could potentially embarrass the couple.
The best way to pick the right reading is to find something that is well-loved and familiar to everyone. The reader may have the option to choose his or her own piece but it is ultimately the couple who has the liberty to assign which readings they would like to hear at their wedding. The perfect reading should be profound and sincere – something the couple and guests (both young and old) can connect with, like Winnie the Pooh.
Timing the reading...
Traditionally, readings should not last for more than five to seven minutes, with around two to three people reading a piece. In Catholic weddings, this number can go as high as ten people.
The couple should note, though, that too many readings can drag the ceremony, causing boredom and disinterest from the guests – one reason why they should choose readings that are light and relatable.
Winnie the Pooh on your wedding...
The ideal reading should be sweet and earnest, something like an excerpt from a beloved story like Winnie the Pooh. The story of Winnie the Pooh is not just about love but also focuses on friendship which is one of the foundations of a long, strong, and lasting marriage.
A Winnie the Pooh wedding reading has everything – genuine and pure innocence and emotions, humour, and valuable life lessons. The readings will surely make the guests feel warm fuzzy inside as Pooh and his gang are like old friends that give the warmest hugs and the best advice.
Words of wisdom from Winnie the Pooh
There are lots of beautiful parts from Winnie the Pooh that one can use for readings. We have gathered up some of the best ones which you can consider for your wedding.
Nothing is sweeter than letting your significant other that your favourite part of the day is spending time with them. Even if it’s the simplest activity or just doing nothing at all, as long as it’s with your partner, it’s the best and most special.
This Winnie the Pooh reading is quite heart-melting, a simple yet deep reminder that the best place in the world is by your partner’s side. And even when you’re apart because of whatever circumstance, you’ll always be with them in thoughts and spirit.
This quote is a great reminder to always see the beauty of what’s in front of you. That you and your partner make your happiness and destiny, wherever it is. Home is where you decide to be, as long as you’re with each other.
These are nice and reassuring words to say to your partner whenever they are down and need some kind words. Having this read on your wedding day will stay as a reminder that you and your partner should draw strength from one another and one should be encouraging and gentle when the other is feeling defeated and down. Marriage is not just about love, it’s also about support and friendship.
This is probably the sweetest Winnie the Pooh reading you could have on your wedding day. This will let them know that you never wish to part from them and that you want to spend the rest of your life by their side. There is nothing better than that.
There are still more Winnie the Pooh quotes you can use for your wedding day aside from the ones above, just go back and watch a few episodes of the animated series and find ones that you like (could be a nice bonding experience with your partner) or search and read up online. There are more funny ones and sentimental ones – just make sure that the readings you will pick will effectively convey how you truly feel.
