to switch or not to switch....

So I "booked" an officiant a while back - Frank Nunez and in the last three weeks we have played major phone tag.  We havent actually spoken about the ceremony or anything only that he was available on our day.  I'm not super convinced that he is great to begin with but since I spoke to him first I havent been able to get him back on the phone.  He calls me or emails at the weirdest hours - always really late.  Or responds to emails like at midnight saying it got too late to call.  Also - and more importantly - he has missed two scheduled calls (ie he says he will call at 7pm to finally discuss and come 7 no call!)  I dont know what hes doing until all hours of the night - isnt he a reverend or minister or whatever? Should I bail on him and find a new officiant?

    Eh.  I would feel weird with him too.  He doesn't sound very reliable, which would scare me.  So yeah -- I'd bail!

    I'm actually really frustrated by this whole officiant thing~  Everyone that I like is booked on my day (No Rev. Rodriguez, no Father Ricky etc. etc.) Who should I use??? Frank Nunez was like a B-list choice for me only because he does notary ceremony only, no religous tones and I wanted a slightly religous ceremony for the sake of My Mom and FI's grandparents.  Any suggestions guys?

    What religions are you both? When is your big day? Are you losing a lot on the deposit if you bail on him?

    D - we were both raised Catholic and our families are more religous than we are.  I never gave a deposit to Frank Nunez, as a matter of fact we never talked about price.  All we established was his availability and then we havent been able to talk again.  He sent me a questionnaire thingy but the link didnt work and I havent been able to tell him about it.  I'm fairly certain I want to find someone else now.  This guy is too flakey!!~

    Yeah I'd definitely be frustrated.  No doubt.

    We used Pastor Allan... he's a nice guy.  I too, wanted some religious-ness in it since I was raised very Catholic (and my family was already having heart palpitations because we weren't getting married in a church) and my H never went to church. So Pastor Allan added some things in for me, yet made it unique and 'us'.

    His # is 561-352-4148

    RED FLAG FOR SURE!!

    .. no deposit means no security he'll show -- I'd cut your losses and find someone better!!

    I'm sorry I can't recommend someone but I think you can find someone better - you deserve it!

    D- big day is 5/16/10 in Coconut Grove
    Mrs. Fez~ I've spoken to Pastor Allan and the only thing that has stopped me from booking him is that he is expensive - he chargs extra to travel to Miami.  His price isnt going to break the bank but it's signifiantly more than the others I have been quoted because of the travel charge.  But he is the only other one I know of right now.  Sounds like he did a good job for the two of you.

    Oh wow, yeah he lives in Boynton so I know that's a hike for him.  But yeah he does the job and is a nice guy.  I wish I knew someone else I could recommend!

    With no deposit, he is not going to be 100% committed to even give you a call back. Bail!

    I have Micheal Calderin and he gets back to me immediately through email or phone and has been more than accomodating. I think he is Broward County but travels all over. He seems very reliable. I also loved that he gave me a $100 discount for being a civil service worker. Gotta love that respect. Good luck.
