Some churches (particularly Catholic) will not allow you to use anyone else. I would check with the priest to see what the hold up is…

Our church (Catholic) will not allow us to use anyone but theirs. You may be stuck. Have you brought up your concerns with the church office or priest? They may be able to encourage the organist to contact you or if they’ve been having problems with the person already they may replace them. Ultimately it’s the church’s call.

Most catholic churches only use one or two organists and will not let anyone else even near it (Im talking the stairs are blocked off and the doors are locked). Maybe you can have a soloist which is still fairly normal for catholic weddings.

@coffeegal85:  You are NOT a bridezilla!  I did not like the church organist at my Catholic church…he was snobby and thought he was the best organist evaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh!!!  We actually ended up going with a string trio.  They were only $150 more, and I didn’t have to deal with the organist’s snobby personality. 

I’m with you.  If I am paying you to do something, you should call me back.  You aren’t that busy that you don’t have 5 minutes.
