His chain of command should be able to tell him whether he is deploying…I knew way in advance because all the work ups we had to do. What branch is he in? I know in the Marines maybe you can talk to the Family advocate officer and find out? Or have him tell his chain of command he needs to know. I think most vendors will work for you maybe they will just hold the deposits for your date change?

I’m pretty sure that if you tell them you have to change the date for a deployment, most vendors will accomodate you to switch to another date or refund your money.  No one wants to be the vendor who looks like they don’t support the military!

Prayers to you and your Fiance that if he’s deployed, it’s short and safe!

If there’s anything that’s constant in the Army, it’s change. Even if you do know the deploy date, it’s subject to change, and then you could really be screwed. I would try to go ahead and amend your contracts. A lot of vendors will be flexible for someone who is in the military. Hopefully, your Fiance won’t be deployed and you’ll be able to be married as planned.

mnp– Good luck! I hope the vendors will work with you. And hope your Fiancee gets to stay so you can have your wedding but if not I wish you both the best in the deployment, I know this news must be heart wrenching.

Most vendor contracts (especially in military towns) contain a rider along the lines of cancellation due to “acts of God.” Our vendors also include military deployments in that statement. If yours don’t, explain the situation and ask them to add it.
