  • Wedding: August 2012

I spent about that for my officiant.  She wrote the entire ceremony from scratch, and re-wrote it as many times as we needed.  It was a low-budget wedding, but we felt this was worth the expense.  Consider that for an atheist wedding, all of the traditional, “pre-written” ceremonies are not an option, so you’ll have to make your own ceremony.  

One alternative: Go online and find a ceremony you like.  There’s a million, just google “atheist wedding ceremony” or something like that.  Re-write it as you see fit, and then have a family member ordained online to marry you.  Much cheaper option and still personal.  Good Luck!

A close and longtime friend of ours officiated our wedding and it was so perfect. We loved that he knew everything about us and our story and was able to make it extremely personal. He did an amazing job and I couldn’t have asked for better! I would definitely recommend this! We went through our county’s office to get him approved (not too much of a hassle!) and he considered it an honor so he didn’t charge us for his service! We treated him as a groomsman so he was involved in pictures and received the same gift we gave our groomsmen.
