Hello Bees, my sister has been in the Air Force for over 10 years now and lives in another state. Yesterday she called to tell me that one of my fears has come true and that she is deploying and cant make it to my wedding…. She is suppose to be deploying in about a month and will be gone for 4 or so months and my wedding is in just over 4 months. She is my only sibling and our father passed away a year and a half ago so its going to be a little difficult for me the way it is. Im so distraught and there is nothing I can do! She says she will try her best to get to come back early but absolutely no guarantee… Sorry just needed to get this out.

Sorry to hear this. My brother is deployed and won’t be home for our wedding, either. Best wishes for her safety.

Aw this sucks. Can you skype her there? I’m so sure she wouldn’t have missed this for the world.

@Beasha: unfortunately these things happen. just pray for her safe return whenever that is. i would suggest not replacing her as a bm. if she don’t not make it back in time, save a place for her at the table in honour of what she is doing for your country. i am sure she will try her best to be beside you on that day, if not, she will be there in thought.

@mypinkshoes: I would never replace her and the spot at the table is a great idea. Thank you.

- Wedding: March 2012 - Father's Vineyard Church/ A Touch of Class Banquet Center
I was in the same position with my brother (he was in Afghanistan). He was supposed to walk me down the aisle after my father passed away, so I didn’t have anyone walk me down the aisle (Mr. D met me half way down), and I left an open chair in the front row and tied a yellow ribbon around it. Hugs dear, I know how hard it is to hae a loved one in the military.

I’m so sorry to hear that 🙁 My Fiance is military so I know how that goes. Just don’t lose hope yet! They could always come back early. But if not, Skype is a great idea or holding a place for her at the table. You could always ask her to videotape a message to play at the wedding. Hugs xo
