@mgarcia01:  The only one I can really answer is,

Do you want to wear a pretty dress?
THEN WEAR A PRETTY DRESS!!

There’s no rule saying you HAVE to wear your dress blues.  

Also, are you trying to incorporate that you’re an airman and he’s a civilian? Because I think people invited to your wedding would know that about you guys..

@mgarcia01:  my husband and I are both active duty, but I feel like I can answer most of your questions. 

planning a wedding while deployed: Internet and if you can afford it, a wedding planner. My wedding planner was the first thing I paid for and I am so glad I sprung for it. over half of my vendors came on recommendations from my planner and most gave us discounts for being referred by her. 

Incorporating your service: I think it depends on how much being an airman really means to you. For DH and I our service is not really what defines us, so besides him wearing his uniform we didn’t really include anything else. 

Uniform vs dress: that is all up to you honey.  I would never never never ever wear my uniform for an event like this, and DH didn’t want to but we ended up eloping quickly a week after he returned home from deployment so it was his only suit option as everything else was in storage.  My best friend’s mom married her dad in her uniform, but it was also a second wedding and very small.
