My fiance and I could not be more grateful that we have the privilege and right to have our relationship and commitment to one another legally recognized as a straight couple. As I plan our wedding I am constantly reminded that not all people have this opportunity. We would like to acknowledge/recognize this in some way. We were thinking of having a link on our wedding website where people could make a donation in our honor to an organization working towards marriage equality, in lieu of getting a gift we have registered for.
I am also concidering choosing a poem or passage to read during the ceremony that talks about the subject. We have a dear friend who identifies as a lesbian and I was thinking of asking her to do the reading. I would like for the passage to not just be a political statement but also something that acknowledges love, all types.
Has anyone ever heard if this being done at the ceremony? Thoughts? Ideas for a reading?
