    As above? I'm unsure who we should have as witnesses to sign the registra book.
    Whether to have one of parents, or MOH and BM?

    Who's everyone else having.

    We also have 2 reading we are not sure who to ask to read them.

    I have been told by my registra that you can have upto 4 people sign.

    As my mam and sister aren't coming, I asked my cousin to be a witness for me (she wasn't a bridesmaid as we lost touch, but have become close again, so asked her to be a bridesmaid lol!)

    OH is choosing his mum I think

    We haven't decided on readings but want some to make the service a bit longer than like 15 minutes lol

    H2B is having his best man, and I've asked my aunt, as my MOH will be dealing with music at that point and I am close to my aunt, so it's nice to give her an honour.

    We had my mum and FIL. We wanted to give them significant roles on the day so they weren't left to just be in the background.

    Wanted to share out the limelight on the day so with my dad having the honour of giving me away, my sister being MOH and doing a reading, niece being FG (covers off SIL), left my mum and FIL without important roles on the day so asked my mum and him to be the witnesses, FIL also did the responsorial psalm (no way would my mum read in church).

    We weren't given the choice, the church told us it's the MOH and best man (or in our case best woman).

    I'm having one of my bm's and he's having his best man. I gave my 2 bm's the options - one signs the registrar and the other can dance with the best man for the first dance and told them to decide between them lol and I must admit they were quite happy that I'd asked them to work it out between them as they got their say in who did what. x

    One of my friends got married in Cyprus and she had her sister as BM and her oh had his brother as best man so don't know why they're saying you can't have family members.

    I suppose it's to-do with them being more impartial? If you go to court for divorce?

    We have been told you can have upto 4 witnesses. And 2 can even be under 18 (over 16)

    We are having my sister (moh) and his best man to sign the register. We wasn't tok sure who to ask so thought we would just go with the tradition. As for readings we are having my brother so he can have a role, and my oh's brother in law, we asked his sister but she didn't want too he oh said he would do it so we agreed! X

    I am having a friend who has helped me with wedding stuff a hell of a lot more than my MOH (she has done nothing!) and she is also making our cake! :)

    I have asked OH to ask his brother or mother to sign for him as I know he has 3 best men, but I know it would mean the world to his mum to have a role other than MOG, and him and his brother don't really talk as they are just so busy but like chalk and cheese, completely different, but I know they care for each other more than they realise and would be lovely for him to have a role in it also. We shall see! :)
