Yikes! That’s not good! I would call him up and ask him to explain himself!

Oh no! You should call him and make sure he knows when to be there for the wedding. This shouldn’t be your job but better to be sure. My priest won’t be at the rehearsal but I know this in advance and they have a coordinator that knows what she’s talking about. It’s not ok that he just didn’t show up.

I would ask someone at the church to find a backup in case the priest can’t do the wedding or doesnt show up.

To give him the benefit of the doubt, maybe he had to attend to a last rights patient. Although he should still have called someone, that’s the only legit reason I could see for him not showing up other than his own medical emergency. However, I would be on the phone with the church coordinator or someone following up. Make sure someone has heard from him and confirm yoor wedding. I would also start thinking about a back up plan, is ther a nother priest you could ask to be “on call”?

@slicey19: I was thinking the same thing too… He also might be attending a griving family or is unwinding from that experience. I know you are freaking but maybe just give it a day then call him back. 

Sorry that no one explained anything to you ahead of time.

@lefeymw: Totally agree. Ask for a back up! Our officiant showed up 45 mintes late for our wedding and it threw everything off.

@maybride2011: i would be a little worried too but then again, he is a priest and the marriages are pretty standard so as long as you all paid attention you should be good.

I hope you get in touch with him soon – to at least confirm that he will be there saturday – i wouldnt worry too much about the something going wrong and more about having an officiant present.

Good Luck on your wedding day!
