Hello and welcome to the bee 🙂

Welcome!! Was just wondering if you live near the coast (Atlantic or Pacific)?? The reason I ask is your September wedding date is peak hurricane season. I live in New Orleans and Katrina is never far from my mind. We try not to plan big events during peak hurricane season. Just letting you know.

Actually I live in Southern California and am planning a wedding in San Diego haha… We don’t really have to worry about hurricanes here ! I lovee NOLA though ! I was actually there for 2 weeks a few months after Katrina. I am secretly hoping that CJ gets stationed there even though I don’t really want to leave Cali. But if I went anywhere I would want it to be there :]

Congratulations! You mentioned an upcoming deployment and I wanted to lend you my ear. My husband deployed a month after we got married (he’s still over there in the “sandbox”). Please PM me if you’re interested in getting involved in some military forums online or something – having support makes ALL the difference in surviving a deployment, especially when you’re married. (We went through our first deployment while we were dating and it’s completely different this time around).

Congrats and welcome to the board. I survived planning a wedding w/ a military FI. It wasn’t easy, but it can be done. Just try to remember to have PATIENCE! LOL

Good luck ladies! You may feel alone in this, but you’re nothing but alone!
