Religious Weddings: Inviting an Atheist to Your Ceremony

A difference in religious beliefs should never get in the way of a friendship

(page 1 of 2)

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?)”
