Not as the bride or groom. :) As far as attending the wedding of a friend or relative, I personally would not find a problem with it as long as you are not asked in any way to participate in any rituals or such that would indicate you condoning the practice. Jesus, when he heard the Pharisees ask his disciples “Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?” (Mark 2: 16-17), replied “I have not come to call the righteous but sinners”. If you don’t associate with sinners then how will they be saved? Being friendly is your best hope to be able to witness to them. I would suggest that you be “prayed up” before the event so that you not fall into any temptations and be more receptive to the Holy Spirit’s leading as far as witnessing opportunities. Added note: My answer was written assuming that the reason the person asking the question was considering going was that they knew either the bride or groom and were invited and considering whether they should attend because of the beliefs of the wedding party. I would never participate in any ceremony that was anti God and would advise others not to as well. I would therefore advise anyone considering such to visit with the person they knew about what exactly would take place and make sure they would not be asked to violate their own beliefs.
