I just responded to your other thread and I found this. I didn’t do wedding then vow renewal, but I suggest maybe not doing it right before deployment. He’s going to be stressed out enough, and if the deployment dates change (as they so often do) you could be in trouble.

I would pick a time when you’ll be settled a bit. It sounds like new duty station and moving are going to be quite close to each other, did I read that right? If so.. I know it sucks to wait, but doing it after the deployment is probably your best bet. Give it a couple months after he gets back to do it, so that if there’s any extensions you won’t lose everything. On the upside, you’ll have lots of time to plan!

We’re waiting until after this deployment. We could have done it before but we never would have enjoyed it as much. He will be home Feb/March and getting married mid May. We covered our asses and made sure each vendor knew things could change. They were all okay with this and included military clauses. Other people also do wedding insurance, but I didn’t feel it was necessary.

Good luck planning!

PS The date you have listed is my birthday!!

Honestly, If you move in Feb and he depoys in Jan there’s LOTS of time for a vow renewal. It sounded a bit like Move in Feb, deploy in April sort of situation.

If you get moving you could certainly have a VR in September or so. Much later than that and you risk the deployment being moved up and ruin wedding plans. Maybe wait a bit until he’s got a rough traning schedule and he’ll have to ask about how far in advance he can book leave but it sounds like you’ve got time if you wanted to do it pre-deployment. You’re already legally wed though, that’s the important part!
