Is it appropriate for my future spouse and I to have a henna even though I’m not Moroccan?

Hope everyone had a lovely Shabbat.

My girlfriend and I have been together for awhile, I want to pop the question next year. Her family adores me, all is well.

Her grandfather was born in Morocco (mothers father) and she very much wants a henna on the day of our wedding.

I’m not Moroccan or any other North African Jewish background. Halachly and culturally, is it okay for us (and me) to have one? Try to put yourselves in the mind of her grandfather, lol.
