@kcmoomey:  We are planning a wedding one state over, about 3.5 hours away.   FI is Nat. Guard, but it doesn’t factor into the wedding much.  There was some worry at first regarding timing of his AT, but we are in the clear – knock on wood…

We are having some troubles planning it just 3.5 hours away.  We both work and FI doesn’t have many weekends off.  We just get up there whenever we can.  We hired a planner and she and my mom do most of the “behind the scenes” things and I am given a list of tasks FI and I can do from here.  So – it’s not TOO bad, but it’s definitely not ideal.  However, we are insuring that the people we care about, well as many as possible, are able to attend.  And we felt like that was very important.  

I know this isn’t your exact situation – but if you can afford some help or have a family member that is willing to organize, you may be able to do it more easily.  Especially if you can get back there every couple of months or once a month or so to check in and meet with vendors. We have even had vendors offer to talk with us over Skype.

my husband is in the Navy and we planned a wedding for 10 months later In NJ. It was kinda easy to get his deployment schedule since he is on a submarine.
