@mrsGB2b:  Fire him.  MONTHS without a contract is unacceptable.  Fire him and do it now.

@mrsGB2b: Write him a formal LETTER asking for your money back. At that point asking for him to provide a contact is something I wouldn’t want. You should have gotten a contract before you gave him any money at all. That fact aside he should have sent you something by now. Hopefully you wrote something in the memo line of the check. Make list of everytime you contacted him via phone or email. Include that list along with a copy of the canceled check as attachments. (You can save your million emails and actual phone records for small claims evidence.) Let him know that you expect a full refund of your deposit but X date or you will take him to small claims court.

Or wait it out sans contract.

That’s horrible! Definitely get rid of him. If he can’t get around to sending you some papers when being asked multiple times, then he is not worth your time, money or worth stressing about whether or not he will even remember to show up!

@Captain013: I second all of this, he sounds like at worst a scammer and at best thoughtless, rude, and not someone I’d want involved with my wedding.

Holy crap! i would freak the F out by now! I agree with PP, fire him NOW. I would also suggest you send him a certified letter asking for your deposit back.

I agree, send a certified letter with print-outs of your e-mail corrispondence (with dates) I would also stop payment on anything you’ve sent him until you have a contract signed.
