Hi everyone! One of the hardest things for me so far has been in deciding what to do about an officiant. Neither FI or I are very religious so we’re planning a non-religious ceremony at an outdoor location. Now the problem: who officiates?!? Originally, I wanted to avoid having anyone religious officiate – it just seemed a bit awkward to me – but I’m finding it extremely hard to find someone who’s not. I also found out about the Quaker self-uniting license in PA, which allows you to marry without an officiant. We’d just need someone to help lead the ceremony (similar to an internet-ordained friend, I think, which isn’t allowed in PA) but I just can’t think of anyone I’d feel comfortable asking to do it. We have plenty of time to decide but I was just wondering if anyone else is facing a similar problem? It’s stressing me out! Any suggestions on what to do?
