I can relate to this- I married my husband at 23 years old and he’s now a Naval Officer. It’s hard not knowing when you’ll see your family again, planning a wedding while going to school/working full time, and having in law (I call mine out laws) pressure.

 The only advice I can offer is to give your fiance tasks. I chose the photographer, he took care of booking. If your fiance has a phone he can probably help. My husband went the OCS route, but i’m pretty sure academy guys have some free time 🙂

I can relate hubby lived in another country, I planned our whole wedding working fulltime and moved to england right after; I loved the planning part that wasnt a problem that was fun, I had so much fun, it was the sadness of leaving my family behind that weighed on me, just do one task at a time, ask friends and family for help, my sister/MOH and 3 nieces/(2flowergirls/1bridesmaid)helped me lot with my DIY; you can do it, the end result will be so worth it

enjoy your family, eventually you get adjusted
