Romantic readings from pop culture are very popular, but so were liquid leggings and, at one point, the mullet. Some people can pull them off but not all of us. So how do you know if it's right for you?
The Perfect Wedding Reading
Whether it be music lyrics, movie quotes, or your favorite tv show, it’s important to have a reading that represents you as a couple. I LOVE Bas Lurman ( yep, I was so cool circa 1996), my fiancé doesn’t know who that is. He LOVES Montreal Canadians, I would rather die than have sports at my wedding. We really wanted a reading- old or new- that spoke to us as a couple. We started looking into quotes from our favorite shows. We love watching Netflix together ( we're in our thirties, so not Netflix and Chill, actual Netflix… and…Netflix). We settled on a reading that represents our love, our wedding, and our time together.
Mashup from How I Met Your Mother
There are two big days in any Love Story, the day you meet the girl of your dreams, and the day you marry her. That’s how it goes kids, the friends, neighbors, drinking buddies, and partners in crime, you love so much when you’re young, as the years go by, you just lose touch. You will be shocked kids, when you discover how easy it is to part ways with people forever. That’s why when you find someone you want to keep around you do something about it.
If you’re looking for the word that means caring. If you're looking for the word that means caring about someone beyond all rationality and wanting them to have everything they want and you want that no matter how much it destroys you, it’s love. And when you love someone you just don’t stop, ever. Even when people roll their eyes and call you crazy. Even then. Especially then. You just, you don’t give up because if you could just give up, if you could just take the whole world’s advice and move on and find someone else, that wouldn’t be love. That would be some other disposable thing that is not worth fighting for. But that’s not what this is.
When you meet the right person you know it. You can’t stop thinking about them. They are your best friend and your soulmate. You can’t wait to spend the rest of your life with them. No one and nothing else can compare.
The great moments of your life won’t necessarily be the things you do, they’ll also be the things that happened to you. Now I'm not saying you can't take action to affect the outcome of your life, you have to take action and you will. But never forget that on any day you can step out the front door and your whole life can change forever. You see, the universe has a plan kids, and that plan is always in motion. A butterfly flaps its wings and it starts to rain. It's a scary thought but it's also kind of wonderful. All these little parts of the machine constantly working, making sure that you end up exactly where you’re supposed to be, exactly when you’re supposed to be there. The right place at the right time.
