    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!

                    Jaime :-)

                      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.
