I understand how you feel.  My husband really didn’t have any interest at all in the details of our wedding planning.  I know it’s tough not being able to talk to your FI much because he is overseas but at least he won’t be gone forever.  Just think about how you are planning the wedding that will start the rest of your lives together!  And I hope he won’t be deployed many more times after this.

AAWWW Sorry.  I am planning a wedding without an interested fiance, but I am able to talk with him to get his idea on things, though he is not interested in looking at flowers or invitations.  Since we are having a winter wedding our theme is snowflakes.  He gets tired of looking at which snowflakes look better. ๐Ÿ™‚

Keep your chin up.  9 months and you are done planning the rest of your lives together! ๐Ÿ™‚

My mom’s mom planned their whole wedding and LET them invite 2 friends each. No joke. 30+ years later they’re still happy…. don’t worry so much about the details ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m sure it’s hard without the support.  My FI has been very interested in most of the details, and I’m sure it would make my planning more difficult if I didn’t have his reassurance that the things I like are also things he likes.  

Even if he isn’t there working with you to plan the wedding, just know that he’ll be there to plan the rest of your lives, and you’ll always be a team no matter how far you are!

I admire you for staying strong while being apart!  I hope he comes home soon!
