Can I request my celebrant to wear a certain colour or outfit?Keira M
I've seen some awful clashing outfits and celebrants in white etc... is it rude to ask them to wear a particular colour or style? I don't know if I'm taking it way too far haha. But I want everything to look good! It is my wedding day, after all :)

It's absolutely understandable for you to want to have input into what your celebrant wears to your wedding ceremony.
I always ask every couple about their dress code for the wedding, the colours the bridal party will be wearing, the colour of flower bouquets and any theming etc, and whether there are any colours they absolutely don't want me to wear (for cultural or any other reasons), to be sure my outfit is in harmony with the overall wedding. As a courtesy, I also ask about the colours to be worn by the mothers of the bride and groom, so there is no chance of wearing the same colour and giving them a moment of embarrassment or discomfort.
I think this should be part of any wedding planning discussion between a couple and their celebrant.
I hope this helps!
