    Before we decided to have a destination wedding, we kept going back and forth between him wearing his dress uniform or a tux but could never decide. Now that we are getting married in the Dominican, he will not be wearing them.. much too hot!

    I'm so excited for you Jaime! My FI went to Afghanastan so I know the feeling. There is nothing better than when they come home :)

      Marisa, we worried about that alot too cuz his deployment was coming up, But hes squadron deployed 6 weeks after the wedding... and lucky for me sucky for him he is on a Med board so he did not deploy

      We did not do mess dress or blues cuz we thought it would look silly on the beach... though I have seen them that did not look silly but it was not for us at all

        Another military wife to be! Well.... for about 2 months :) My FI has just finished a career in the army (20 yrs) and is retiring on a medical pension in June. He just received his 7th medal this week... this one was the "Sacrifice Medal" which was given to him after getting injured on his 4th and last tour....Afghanistan in 2006.

          Hello Military Wives!
          First of all thank you to all of our military men and woman for the service that they do.
          I too am a military wife. We got married a few months before he deployed (a little over a year ago) and have decided to have a destination wedding on his return with family and friends. It is so good to see a thread like this because you all know the what life is like in the military. I wish everyone a happy and beautiful wedding!
          Bride and Groom + 62 Booked = PARTAAAY!

            Well, we found out this week that he won't be deploying...but that is a whole long story I will tell you later, Jeni. We're both upset though because the extra money from the deployment was going to go to the wedding fund! Ugh!

              Oh crap! I mean YAY he will be with you but boo on the no extra income :/

              I'm so excited his med board should be coming back next month, and keeping fingers crossed that he will get back on flying status!

              Then he can go on TDY more so we can get the extra income haha

                Jeni, I hope Tim gets back on flying status! We are waiting on the same thing for Dan. He has been having appointments to check out some stuff, and I'm hoping after this week the flight doc will give him the ok. He seems so sad that he can't fly. When we flew to NY this weekend, he seemed so happy to be back in the air, even if it wasn't for work, haha!

                  Hello ladies. I too am a military wife to be. However I'm also a member of the military. I'm getting ready to deploy to Afghanistan myself in the next couple of weeks. So wedding planning for me has been pretty crazy trying to get as much done as possible before I deploy. Thank goodness for the internet! I'll be able to keep planning and in touch with my guests during my 8 month deployment.

                    Hi MediPea! I know several couples where both are in the military, so I can imagine how tough it will be planning your wedding while deployed! Good luck, and know we're always here for support!

                      I know this is an old thread but I just wanted to see if there were any other military wife-to-be out there? My FI is active duty USAF.
