she may have a backup option setup, if shes willing to take the risk (being a no show) with her profession.

yeah. I would ask her if she has a backup option in the unlikely event she is unable to make your wedding, and if not maybe start looking at alternatives?

MrsKing212:  do you live somewhere you can have a friend of family member get ordained so that at the very least you can hope for your celebrant but have an easy access plan b?

I think that would be something that she needs to do, to find a back up “just in case”.

I know in all my vendor contracts, they all say that in case something should happy, they know other vendors that would help in the situation to fill in. 

Just tell her, yes, as you know anything can happen and that you would like her to contact a few backups and have them available, if needed.

Usually cesareans are scheduled before natural labor would happen, because usually if it is scheduled there is a reason why natural labor would be dangerous or risky, so they avoid that.  Still, things do happen, but honestly I don’t think the risk is that great.  Maybe she has an associate? Or maybe you have friend or family member (even distant) that is already certified that might be willing to do the ceremony last minute.

Or what you could do is just go with it as a ceremony, and worse comes to worse you could have a friend do the ceremony, even if not certified, and just legalize the marriage in a courthouse right before or after the wedding.  It doesn’t seem the most ideal, but it is only a very small possibility.  There was a bee on here whose celebrant didn’t show up randomly, so they went with this option last minute since all their guests were there.  They still had an amazing time, and eventually did get legally married.
