BurlapnLace: so the documentation is going to get you there in the manner you planned? I don’t understand. what does his signature have to do with making this happen?
If you’re worried he won’t show up, then book another limo instead or get back up plans.
If you’re not worried about him showing up, thst leaves worried he will fail some part of the contract, which means you plan on doing something about that after the fact. And that brings us back to suing him, which you just said you were not planning on, or maybe you’re going to try to pay him less.
This is wayyyy too much effort into getting a limo.

BurlapnLace: Sorry to hear about this. We’ve only had an issue with one vendor, and we cut her loose. I later found out that many people have had similar issues, so I’m glad we went with someone else.
I will say this is just a limo, and I didn’t receive contracts in return from some of my smaller vendors, either.
I think you really need to decide whether or not you want to work with the vendors you are having issues with. Look up reviews and figure it out. Chances are, no one is out to get you. TBH, I’d be nervous giving my vendors this sort of attitude. It gives them much less incentive to do a perfect job on your wedding day.

Contracts are essential, but you still have a copy of the contract with your signature, right? Is your concern just to get the contract with his signature copied?
His business provides contracts in the first place, so I think he should handle them correctly, which means both parties end up with a copy with all necessary signatures. However, it is not critical that you have a copy with both signatures as long as you still have a copy on file at all.
You have a choice here. You can either continue to pursue getting a completed copy, or at least a better picture. He spends his days driving people rather than being in the office, which is natural for his business. The paperwork is not his prerogative, and he probably started doing the contracts just because it protects him from people backing out at the last minute and wanting full refunds.
Or, you can treat this like the “green M&Ms” in a concert contract; a small thing that indicates a lack of attention to detail. You could then find another limo company and deal with them. Depending on the terms of your contract, you may be within the acceptable back-out period.
I would be slightly concerned, but only enough to look up reviews of the company. If they are reliable and can be counted on to show up on time, you should be fine.
