- Wedding: March 2012
I am having a difficult time wrapping my mind around this new idea my Fiance has. He is an officer in the AF and knows it is a common practice for couples to wed in a simple JOP ceremony and later have a big celebration. His idea is to hit the court with our parents before he deploys and a year from that date do the big celebration with all of our family and friends.
The benefits are hugh doing it this way but I feel it takes away from the excitement of “the big day”. Housing Allowance is enough to cover our entire mortgage of $1700, the dependant additional will cover our entire monthly in groceries, then me and my son being on his insurance I would save over $350 in insurance monthly from my paychecks
I am having a difficult time because I always wanted a normal wedding celebration from beginning to end. I sort of feel this will take away from the excitement of “the big day”. What do you think? Has anyone had this experience and how did it turn out for you? All opinions are welcome. Thanks dolls!
