That’s really crazy sounding and unprofessional. Good luck with finding a new one! I know you’ll be able to.

For some reason I read the subject wrong thinking it sayed “blacked out” so I pictured him fainting during the middle of your ceremony. So on this bright side this is way better and totally fixable:)

I am so sorry.  However, on the bright side, at least you have the two months. I know it is not ideal, but it is better than her backing out the day before your ceremony. I have received calls from frantic couples the night before their ceremony. They’re looking for someone to officiate their ceremony because their chosen Officiant “can’t make it”.

Two months gives you a little time. I hope you find a wonderful Officiant that is perfect for your wedding ceremony.

Best Wishes.

You still have time to find another one.  Good luck!

If you can’t one, as another option, you might want to consider asking a friend/family member to be the officiant of the wedding?  You will be surprised how many people have a license and host a ceremony for friends/family before.  The online certificate is not hard to get (and cheap too).
