Is it OK to ask a celebrant to wear a costume at our wedding?

Hello! I've read some responses to celebrants dressing in a matching style etc. Is it rude to ask if they wouldn't mind wearing a costume? I've read somewhere a couple got married by batman and then the obvious Elvis option.. I like the idea of an iconic character and think it would be something to remember but wouldn't want to offend anyone or make it a bad experience. TIA

It's your wedding and your celebrant should and will hopefully have an open mind.   If you want him/her to wear a specific costume you should ensure you ask at the time of requesting a quote/first meeting.   If you wish them to wear a specific style of costume then you should also anticipate that the cost of that costume will be added to your invoice and be included in the celebrants T&C's Agreement.  Hope this is of assistance.  GOOD LUCK AND ENJOY YOUR BIG DAY!!

Confusion around roles of matron of honour, maid of honor and who can be a witness with the best man

I have a Maid of Honor who is unmarried and a Matron of Honor who is married. I want my Matron to be a witness along with the Best Man. Even though she is married, can I have her as the Maid instead?

A Day with Dorothy

Traditionally, the Matron of Honor is already married, and a Maid, unmarried.    Your choice of witnesses is entirely up to you the couple.  It can be a best friend, Maid of Honor or Matron of Honor.   Obviously in your case your Matron of Honor and the Best Man will be your witnesses.   If you want to keep with tradition, then no, your married Matron of Honor cannot be called a Maid of Honor.   I hope this helps and has clarified things for you.  Good Luck on your BIG DAY!
