@Payless:  Can you move the wedding date up?? Lots of military wives have had to do so. Or at least get married legally in a small ceremony and have a big celebration later when he returns?

@Payless:  What if you cut back on some of your things, do more DIY and push the date to January?

Maybe you (or someone in your family) can try reaching out to a local news organization. I see a lot of these stories where vendors pitch in free services/goods for publicity and the chance to help out a couple in need. I think your story (with FI being deployed and the missing stranger) is quite compelling.

I think it’ll “look better” if someone in your family or a dear friend reached out on your behalf but I supposed there’s no better time to put yourself out there than now.

Can you leave your deposits as good faith money for after he gets back?

Are you able to make payments AFTER the wedding if you talked to any vendors? I know you said they were all being helpful, possibly this could be an option?  Possibly take on a weekend job/sell things around the house you don’t need anymore? I usually don’t condone this, but credit cards are an option too if you have them.

Well you either need to cancel the vow renewal, cut the guest list, get a second job, or start selling stuff to raise the money.

What happened to this thread?  This had about 70 comments last night about how the OP is already married but feels she didn’t get the wedding she somehow ‘deserves’???
