How many readings would you say is appropriate? Most of the ones I'm looking at are short, but should I still keep it down to one or two, or could I squeak an extra one in? I don't want the ceremony to run more than half an hour at the outside, but the base ceremony scripts our officiant gave us are more like 15 minutes, and there are some really beautiful verses out there making me all weepy.
Where are the best spots in the ceremony order to add readings? What are your thoughts on having them together vs. scattering them throughout?
I'm also super curious which readings you guys have used or will use.
