Today I was literally bored out of my mind. My kids are with their dad/friends for the weekend and FH is still in Texas. So what do I do? I start wedding planning and 8 hours later I literally have everything pretty much decided on. I shared the ideas with FH and loved them but I feel like I am missing doing it WITH him. Since we have not actually paid for anything yet I knew I can still get the chance to do some wedding planning with him but I am pretty sure that we will end up doing everything I decided on today. Anyone else plan their wedding alone? With out FH or bridesmaids?

@pengoala: You are SO sweet! I am thankful for this page because I have really felt like close girlfriends giving me advice vs. a bunch of strangers. It is super hard with him being away and in a not so safe place (building a border patrol station on the mexico texas border, pretty dangerous area) I worry alot and I know he wants me to be happy and excited about all this but I just want him to come home and I want to do it all together.

I can’t tell you from personal experience but my sister got engaged when her now husband was back on his 2-week R&R from Afghanistan, but when he left again I think June/July 2011 she had to do all the planning until he returned from his 1-year deployment in mid-December for their April 2012 wedding. I know she was stressed but she got through it with help of friends and family. I know it must be very hard to plan alone and we are all here to help you out however we can! Good luck to you!

My FI is here, but works 70 hours a week and doesn’t really care about wedding details, so I’m mostly planning it alone. If I’m stuck on something, I either post options here or send them to my MOH/BFF for an opinion. *hugs* I wouldn’t think negatively about the planning that you have done without him.

There will be SO much more planning you can do together. Cake tasting, flower shopping, even if you know what you’re looking for you still need to scope out vendors and that’s the fun part anyway : ) Do you have your dress/veil/shoes yet? Maybe you could shop for that while he’s away? Us bees will gladly help!
