I have been asked to do a reading at a forth coming family wedding. Couple didn't want a religious verse so have plumped for an E E Cummings verse. Very lovely and appropriate
Bride wants something to reflect on the fact that some family members have passed away so need to include that sort of thing. What I need help with is the little intro that I will have to say. Some thing along the lines of " x&x asked me to read something for them today as they start the new married life but also as a chance to remember others who can't be with us today" not to maudlin but some words to show respect?? Any ideas would be great. Tia

I'd say just like you wrote above - perhaps say to remember those who have passed away. If the couple wanted you could say the names and family relation of the people they are remembering specifically
