RAWRAW:  I’m not married but we’re both atheists too. You can try searching these boards for atheist ceremonies. I came across a few that offered some takeaway points posted a few years ago.

Personally, our officiate will be a drag queen who just happens to be an ordained minister (but it will be completely secular)

My SIL is not an athiest, but they had a sort of combined ceremony.  She ius a school teacher, and in place of a bible reading (actually, I think they also had a Bible reading), she had her friends read a children’s book.  I think it was called, “I Like You A Lot.”  I thought it was a neat idea.

RAWRAW:  We are not religious people at all and chose an officiant that has options for both types. Not one mention of bible this, obey that. It was actually a very personal and lovely ceremony all about US. Super cool.

We just exchanged our own (non-religious) vows and did a wine box ceremony.

I don’t see problem with it, especially since you’re making it clear it’s not the wedding itself.

That said, is there a reason you can’t just have a secular wedding and do it all at once? We had a non-religious wedding (the officiant was a judge) that we wrote ourselves.
