Wow… that is terrible. I am SO sorry for you, your husband and your friends and families. Perhaps you can talk to the vendors and at least be able to get money or credit back and maybe in the future do a “vow renewal” or something. 🙁

I am so sorry to hear that! Can you move the date up or would that be too soon?

I”m so sorry, hopefully your family will still fly out and spend time with you as their tickets are already purchased.  You need family now more than ever with your husband over seas.

I’m so sorry!! That’s terrible; I’ve heard so many stories like this, it makes me angry that the army does this so often…

Oh I am so sorry, that is awful.

 

I like blingybrides idea about trying to get credit.

@shelbyfk:  Sorry to hear about the early deployment.  I’m sure that is very disheartening.  I would definitely look into getting a credit towards a future flight.  There may be a small fee (I just had to change my flight with AirTran and it was $75), but worthwhile.  I would also explain to the hotel about your situation…maybe, just maybe…they’ll be understanding.  Best wishes to you and yours!

I’m so sorry that this happened to you and I hope your husband returns home safe!

 

You may have already thought about this but maybe you could recoup some of the money spent by going individually to your vendors and explaining what happened, that you can prove it, and that by refunding your deposits they would be helping the family of a soldier abroad. Maybe offer to write them Yelp/Google reviews in which you stress that they have gone out of their way to aid a soldier? I hope that some of them at least would be sympathetic to your situation or at least see this as an opportunity to make their business look good. Your family members might be able to do the same with airlines or hotels. It may be cold comfort but at least you could put that money towards a future wedding reception once your husband gets home.

Oh my goodness, you poor thing.  I’m so so so sorry.   This post really made me sad. I really hope things work out and I’m sure you’ll still have your wedding — just a matter of when.

Wow..you poor thing. This is horrible, but remember everything happens for a reason even when it seems cruel. That’s the way I get through the rough patches.

A military deployment changes contracts – they can’t hold you to them if one of the people that serves to obligate the contract is going to war. 

We had a clause in each of our contracts that in case of unexpected military deployment, the deposit would remain with the vendor and the event would be considered postponed, not canceled.  I suggest trying that if can, but also read the laws regarding contracts with deploying military personnel.
