My fiance and I got a marriage license, however, it expired last week. I realize that it is important to me to be sure to find someone who will not engage in superstitious talk at our wedding ceremony. I've looked online for local officiants, with each one promoting spirituality in some form. I don't want to hear words like that on my wedding day!
My experience with people has been that communication is a difficult thing. I can interview these people and they may seem to agree, but in the end they will decide what to say, and whether or not to add a quick "God Bless You" or "May the Universe Guide You" in there thinking it won't do any harm. I have to hear this stuff all the time. I'd like my wedding day not to have it. So I'm searching for an officiant who is also an atheist/antitheist.
What has your experience been with atheistic weddings? I attended two of my fnon-believing friends' weddings last year, who apparently didn't care as much as I do about the officiant, and there were religious words in the ceremony.
