When planning a wedding, it’s hard to be sensitive to the sensitivities of all involved — but it behooves the bride to try her best!
Dear Wedding Guru: “I’m having a religious (but not over-the-top) wedding. I’ll be married by a member of the clergy, who will mention God in the ceremony. I’d like to include one of my dearest friends in my bridal party, but she is a strict atheist. I don’t want her to be uncomfortable, but I can’t leave her out either. Should I ask her? (If so, what’s the best way to do it?)”
