Help finding fellow Wiccan for wedding?

March 25th, 2010

I am at the beginning stages of planning my wedding. I am Wiccan and would like to incorporate some of that into my wedding.
I do not know many people around my area who are also Wiccan, let alone an elder or priestess who can help me or take part and can legally do marriages.
It was advised to me to try to find someone who could do this. Does anyone know of someone in the NW Indiana area that could do this?
I do not mean to offend, but I do not want someone who thinks they are Wiccan but really is not. I do not want a “fly by night” person who believes they are Wiccan, but has the wrong idea of what that is. I want someone “real”, honest, trustworthy, and understanding.
If you can help me out at all it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Chocolate: Ignorance will get you nowhere.
Yellow: No, I have a husband to be. I am looking for someone to preform the ceremony. Please read the question.
Okay, this is a question looking for help fnding someone to preform a ceremony. Please do not respond with your personal beliefs. I am 30 and deserve respect on my beliefs as I respect yours.
Also, grow up.
If you are going to make comments that put down my beliefs, please do your research first to know what you are talking about. It amazes me how people of true ignorance can assume and place judgement and yet they have no clue.
You people are truely amazing.
For those who know what the meaning of help actually is – THANK YOU!

    Contact the Covenant of the Goddess. They might know somebody close to your area who can go and marry you.

    Wicca is basically a religion that is about minding your own business and living peaceably with your neighbors and environment. Wiccans are eager to draw parallels between themselves and biblical Christianity for the sake of earning credibility, but what does the Bible have to say about this religion? You won’t find the word “wicca” in the Bible, so let’s evaluate the beliefs in light of what God says about them.

    Wicca spells are idolism– Romans 1:25 says, “They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and served created things, rather than the Creator…” Who wants to settle for second best? In Isaiah 40, God paints a very cool picture of how much greater the Creator is than His creation. If you are worshipping anything besides the Creator, you are just spinning your wheels.

    Wicca spells bring false hope – Hebrews 9:27 says, “…Man is destined to die once, after that, to face judgment.” God says we get one chance at life, and that is it. There are no do-overs. If we don’t accept God’s gift of Jesus in our lifetime, He judges us as unwilling to be in His presence, and we are sent to Hell.

    Wicca spells bring disillusionment – Mark 7:8 says, “You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to the traditions of men”. God is God, and we are not. We have a decision to make. Are we going to take God at His word and adopt His worldview, or not? Knowing God is hard work that takes a lot of discipline. Wicca is a religion that takes a pack of lies, ties it in a romantic ribbon, and searches out a well-intentioned, but lazy and gullible mark to sell its hollow doctrines.

    Deuteronomy 18:10-12 says, “Let no one be found among you who… practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells…Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD…” Wicca witchcraft is a sin and God hates it. Why? Because it is an attempt to cut off our dependence on God and get answers apart from Him.

    This is what sin is all about. Sin isn’t just a heinous, socially disagreeable action. Sin is our decision to disagree with God on any topic – to rebel against Him. Sin is saying, “God, I want to live my life MY WAY.” Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death…” This isn’t bodily death, this is spiritual death: eternal separation from God and all the blessings that His presence brings. This is the definition of Hell: the absence of God’s presence. That is what our sin buys for us.

    Thankfully, Romans 6:23 doesn’t end there. It goes on to say, “…but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” God knew that we would all rebel in one way or another, and he provided a way for us to avoid that separation.

    Try a Stevie Nicks concert. Or the female armpit hair festival.

    Sorry you’ll have to work through this delusion on your own.
    Good luck with that.

    Ptah’s got the right source. Also, if you find a tradition you care about a lot, you can always ask them.

    I had to add a stern warning about the types of hf’s I *won’t* do to my witchvox profile, and I know others who’ve pulled theirs because of teeniebopper spam, so if you don’t find one there, don’t assume there are not any.

    I don’t know what kind of time frame you are looking at, but I’d recommend two books: “Wicca, a Guide for the Solitary Practitioner” by Scott Cunningham and “The Witches Bible Complete” by Janet and Stewart Farrar. Both are widely respected authors on the subject and the information will help you sort out the genuine people from the poseurs. The books are readily available both online or in the New Age section of any good bookstore. In Wicca we are all our own Priests and Priestesses, that is why self-initiation is perfectly acceptable, as is self marriage from the Religious viewpoint. I’ve known several Pagan couples in your situation who simply got a civil ceremony to take care of the legal matters, then held a private ceremony with their coven and close friends to invite the Goddess and God to bless them. That is what my own daughter did and it was a wonderful ceremony, it’s something for you to consider. If you have any further questions feel free to e-mail me if you wish. Bail o na Deith ort.
