AW!  this probably seems super sucky because you weren’t prepared for it.

I’m an Army wife to be and there are tons in my exact situation that will probably make you not feel so alone in this.

I too am planning my wedding sans Fiance.  And in fact, mine doesn’t even come home at night to bounce anything off off.  And you know, OF COURSE I would rather have him here, but instead I kind of relish the wedding planning b/c it helps me pass the time. And it’s a labour of love that he will LOVE when he does get back.

This job is such a blessing and although it will be hard to do a lot on your own, you guys will have a lot more security once the party is all said and done.  I think that is the best wedding present you guys could get! (well besides a winning lotto ticket maybe!)


Good luck!

I would probably be upset too! But try to see it from FI’s point of view. He has just been given this great opportunity for a new job and instead of celebrating, you guys are upset because he can’t come wedding planning. It is a tough situation.

In the long run, this job will be more important then him being there for the wedding planning week.

So try to keep positive. 🙂

Is there any way that you could take e-pics in your hometown?
