Ceremony restrictions and my uncle is the officiant... help!
My uncle is a reverend and is marrying my fiancé and I this summer. We are Anglican and wanted a nice, relaxed outdoor ceremony that wasn't very focused on religion but instead on us. We had planned to write our own vows, choose our own music, readings, and even have a sand ceremony, but with every turn he shoots us down saying none of this is possible. We aren't allowed to write our own vows, have perfectly acceptable music to walk down the aisle, do any non-biblical readings (no matter how perfect or appropriate), and sand ceremonies are a no-no in the eyes of the church.
TL;DR: My uncle is marrying us and is keeping us from including things we wanted in our ceremony.
It's less than 3 months until the wedding (July 25th) and my fiancé and I are torn: should we get another officiant who will let us have the big day we dreamed of or should we stick with my uncle for family reasons and because if it rains we can use the church as a back-up location?
