Military Brides/Wives - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

I am so glad I found this thread! My FI is in the Marines and he loves it.... but I tell you it is soo hard. He's been deployed to Iraq twice and he's gone everywhere, phillipines, kuwait, japan etc. and early next year he may be off to Afghanistan. And I can honestly say that there's no words to prepare you for when they leave and it gets harder everytime (at least it is for me). The best thing to do is just stay busy. When he's away I write down stupid funny things that happen and put them together for my weekly letter to him. If you ladies ever want to talk or nething you can ALWAYS pm me! Stay strong!

 

With that being said... are your FI wearing the military dress uniform at the wedding??

My FI had planned to wear his mess dress in the wedding, but he decided after looking at tuxes for the other guys in the party that he liked the tux better, so that is what he is going to wear now.

I absolutely melt when my FI is in his dress blue uniform and I really want him to wear it but he's also undecided because the groomsmen will be wearing a white shirt and kahki or dark pants but he looks soooo goood in his uniform!!!!! But I think if the groomsen throw on a tie or something it'll look fine!!.

Wearing the shoes is just something he'll have to do if he wants to wear his uniform! Will your reception be on the beach as well, or will it be out of the sand? If out of the sand, just remind him that he'll only have his shoes on in the sand for a few minutes!

Hey Ladies! I'm so happy I found this thread! My husband and I have been married for a year, but we never got a big wedding because we got married right before he deployed. Now he's back and we're planning our wedding for next November when he separates from the Military. It can not come fast enough because he just got transferred to the middle of nowhere haha and it sucks here. Anyone else have a similar situation?

Brandon will be home for good in one month... I can't wait! Can't believe it's already been almost a year since he left for Iraq! Wow, those first two months I just thought I was going to die... now looking back this year really did fly by. Can't wait to have him home for good!

How exciting that he'll be home soon Jaime! Dan will leave soon on another deployment. Luckily he will only be gone for 3 months. I'm always so worried they will extend it though and he will miss our wedding! Sucks having to plan stuff with so much uncertainty.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
