So I am having this huge dilema of being happily engaged but being annoyingly rushed due to my Fiance’s upcoming deployment.
Absolutely hate the Navy , he was scheduled to deploy in april now it;s been switched 3 times….
Originally I wanted to get married before he deployed but currently this leaves us with 7 months to plan and a small budget of 8K, which is SD might as well be 100$ lol. Unfortunately everything here is a small fortune, and the options I am left with on this budget are not exactly my idea of a dream wedding.
I am considering postponing the wedding till after deployment, however that would be until October 2014 + 9months when he gets back…. Which also isn’t ideal since I know there is a readjustment period post deployment and things won’t exactly be the same once he returns. 🙁 I am truely at a loss….
FI wants to “elope” prior, and save up for the big wedding after he returns. I feel as if eloping will really rob me of that special feeling a wedding is supposed to give you since…we will already have been married for almost a whole year if not mroe by the time the party actually rolls around. I dont know what to do or how to feel for that matter. But on the upside we will have enough money for a wedding i would really enjoy and i wouldnt have to deal with the stress of all his predeployment training (aka him being MIA) as well as feeling rushed.
Ugh if only he could go AWOL and leave the silly navy….
