- Wedding: July 2010
So, the FH and I are currently living in two different cities (and our wedding site is yet another third city). He’s in the military, and to get on-base housing you must be legally married.
We are worried that if we wait til July (our set wedding date) to get our marriage license and married, I can’t move up to him on base until he’s secured a house. This would me either moving by myself or having my mom help me move (and being there for the first few days we are a married couple). The base housing can take anywhere from 1 day to 6 months to get placed.
How do you think people will feel if we got married at the courthouse near base before the wedding and then had a family/friends ceremony in July? We’re hoping if we can get the paperwork and housing situation settled before I actually move, life will be a little easier. But, we’re afraid to step on anyone’s toes.
Have any of you done a courthouse wedding and another ceremony?
