Ladies, I could use some encouraging words. I talked to my FI today (phone instead of our usual email) and because of changes in his merchant marine schedule, he won’t be home on the wedding date we chose! I have invites and napkins and all sorts of stuff booked. I am just churning right now. Looking at calendars for people involved (caterers, photog, work, school) we are moving the wedding to May 15 pending final approval that the church is available. I have a month and half!!!
If I could pull out my hair, I would, but I don’t have much as it is and my hairdresser would freak not to have anything to style.

Well think of it this way.
You’ll have a husband all that much sooner.
Just breathe. Tackle one thing at a time. And turn to us if you need any more support.

I completely understand that honey, my FI is currently deployed and when we set a date we made sure it was far enough out that even if his date was pushed back, our wedding date would be fine. I was terrified of something happening, too and still am cause you never know with the military!
I am so sorry, I know how stressful that must be! Since it is because of the military, I’m sure you could talk to your vendors and have them help you out and be flexible to some extent since he has orders of a date change. Maybe the invites can be redone with a minimal fee since it’s a military thing. The church, well my fingers are crossed that it will be available!!
Just take it one step at a time, first thing is to discuss this with all your vendors and see what they are willing to do and don’t be afraid to beg and cry ( 😉 ). Breathe and stay calm, one step at a time to get this taken care of. And look at it this way, you get to become a Mrs. a little bit early 🙂

Everything will work out in the end the way it was supposed to be. Like the other ladies said you will be married that much sooner! It sucks that we can’t predict the future or what is going to happen. You just have to make the best of it and its still your wedding day! You will be marrying your love and everything will work out.

Well, the church is available on May 15, so we are a go. Thank you for all your encouragement. I am feeling much less stressed today because everyone, family and friends included, has been very supportive and offered to help with whatever I need. I believe I will have to take them up on those offers.
Have a great day!

Oh, you poor thing! I would be freaking out, but that’s because I’m a neurotic worrier–you can DEFINITELY do this, and it sounds like everything is working out! Your family and friends will help, and before you know it, it will all be happening and you’ll be MARRIED!! YAY! Good luck!

I can understand too! Thanks to the military, I didn’t know my date was 100% cleared until about a month and a half before the wedding! It’s so doable too, especially beings you’ve been planning. Just try to look at the big picture of being married and so happy and try not to focus on the little things that will drive you crazy!
