My husband’s dad married us! ^_^ I think you might want to look into the legality of that… If you aren’t being legally married there, sure he can do it no problem. If you want your marriage to be legal at the ceremony, he may need to be ordained as a minister in that country, although I’m not sure how that would work with legality in the states if you were married abroad.

My uncle is marrying us.  =)  He’s an Episcopal minister, but we’re keeping religion out of it.  I told him I would love for him to officiate, but that if he wasn’t comfortable with the lack of religion we’d totally understand…and he was basically like, “It doesn’t matter, because it’s your decision.”  He’s pretty cool.

In PA you can get a quaker marriage license, and they don’t have officiants, so if all goes as planned… we’re marrying us!

@roguefishfood : my Friends had a Quaker marriage ceremony and it was beautiful. It’s nice because everyone in attendance gets to sign the marriage license!

My friend is going to marry us! She is of Nigerian descent and going to wear traditional Nigerian formal clothing. It’s going to be awesome!

A friend of mine is ordained and has a Masters in Religion (he is actually an elementary art teacher). Both Fiance and I aren’t very religious and want a non-denominational wedding. I don’t see any con in someone who knows us well performing our union.

FH’s best friend is marrying us! The only con is that I have to pretty much come up with his whole speech, because he doesn’t know what I want him to say. I’m letting him improvise as much as he wants, but he doesn’t feel comfortable coming up with it from scratch.

@Bebealways:  Us too! We’re having my fiance’s sister “MC” the ceremony, but we’re officially  declaring ourselves husband and wife. Do you know if the Quaker certificate is part of the legal license?

@Katallac:  Well in the quaker version there’s nowhere for an officiant to sign as far as I know. So I guess that’s different? Not sure about the details yet…

My Fiance will be marrying me- I hope…. lol

We are actually still looking for an officiant and will probably end up with a Justice of the Peace at best and one of those expensive officiant companies at worst.
