    If he wanted one of those read at his wedding, they’re probably important to him for one reason or another; was it necessary to belittle the specific question?

    I’ve seen a few of these so far. I’ve noticed a theme here…apparently you don’t “personalize” weddings, just the receptions. That makes sense, I guess. I mean, even if I got married by a judge, I wouldn’t be telling him/her what to say either.
    At least they choose wacky questions…
