- Wedding: September 2013
So my wedding plans have been running smoothly and I’m 2 months away without many worries…or so I thought.
I had a hard enough time finding an officiant I would be happy with and then beginning of February FI and I finally found the right person, paid in full even though didn’t have to until week before wedding, signed contract the with dates and times, the whole shebang.
Well on Sunday evening I suddenly get an email from my officiant asking if we can move the rehearsal from Fri to either Mon, Tues, Weds, Thurs…or even Saturday morning before the wedding because he is having some scheduling conflicts.
Really? Now, I haven’t stressed about anything, I’m a really laid back person and bride, but this actually kind of pissed me off! On my contract is says my rehearsal time and location that he agreed to, and plus all of our wedding party lives out of town so Friday night is our only option, and Saturday morning just is completely out of the question.
I responded immediately to his email stating so very politely, but didn’t hear anything back. I waited another 2 days and emailed him again stating nicely asking again if he recieved my response and making sure my allotted time was still a go. It took him a day to respond and this is what he said,
“I’m still working on the schedule…”
Exactly like that, nothing else! So I’m a little frazzled because FI and both now feel like maybe he is trying to cram in a wedding or something the night before because he hasn’t given us the reason why he needs this rescheduled. I would understand if it’s personal or someting family oriented, but he also runs a DJ gig so I’m wondering if that is playing role.
However, again we have a signed contract with rehearsal date and wedding date and times for the last 4/5 months, so FI and I almost feel like maybe we should start looking for someone else and ask for our money back if he doesn’t respond soon with a concrete answer?
He has great reviews on all the sites and I got a great vibe off of him and everything has been running smoothly, and this is the last thing I want to be worrying about only 2 months out!
Ok, sorry I’m ending my rant now, I just needed to get that out!
