My FI finally comes home from a year long deployment in less than a month. There is supposed to be a pinic after their welcome home ceremony then followed by fireworks. Seeing as I’m new to this area and no nothing about the Army, I’m having a hard time trying to find something nice to wear. Any ideas ladies? I don’t want to be super casual but not formal. Are jeans okay for something like this?

I think a sundress would be more appropriate then jeans, but nothing too short 🙂

It will depend on what state you will be in. My fiancee is coming home for good this month and I will wait and get the weather report before I pack to prevent from not packing the correct clothes for the dinners. All think in terms of class oppose to relaxed

We have been through a couple deployments now, and my biggest advice is where what you are comfortable in, but don’t overdress!! Girls get stares if they show up in fancy dresses.
If he will be coming in on the flight line on base, you might have to stand in grass, so I would say you’re better off leaving the heels at home.
If he’s coming into an airport, then wear whatever shoes you want!
Last time I wore skinny jeans & a “nice” top.
