I’m sorry you have to put your plans on hold. Mr Encore (and our troops) are in my prayers!

If you need someone to talk to, send me a message. We were married in a civil ceremony just me and him less than 30 days before he deployed to Afghanistan. His deployment was 12 months… it was really hard, very lonely at times… but I can honestly say now that it’s over and our "real" wedding with family and friends is a few weeks away, that the deployment strengthened us as individuals and strengthened our relationship. He reminded me during deployment to not just live and get through the days, but to take it as an opportunity to excel. You can still do some wedding planning while he’s away – use it as time to really gain your vision of what you want… get closer to your girlfriends, your siblings, your family, take day trips (even if it is by yourself), take some more time for your hobbies. You’ll get through it. The first couple of weeks and even months are the absolute hardest and that’s the time to rely on your family and friends… but I can tell you that it’ll be a time when you learn a lot about him and yourself and your relationship. Good luck to both of you!

My sister’s husband was also deployed right after she had given birth… twice.  It’s extremely difficult, but it makes you all the more appreciative to have someone so special in your life.

EncoreBride I know exactly how you feel. My fiance left for Afghanistan the first of March. Most days it does suck, it sucks BAD but others it’s not so bad. Feel free to message me if you would like to talk…

My cousin and her husband had a small ceremony prior to his deployment. They had to so she could get on his insurance.  She has seizures and was about to get removed from her parent’s insurance.  They had a beautiful wedding when he returned from Iraq.

Wishing him safety and a big thanks to him for protecting our liberty and freedom.  Hugs and love to you btw.

Let us know how things are going. 

Why not do a small wedding before?  How long will he be there?  If it’s longer than a year, you could do a small one and have a big reception and homecoming when he returns?

I thought I was reading my own post for a second – my Fiance is in Afghanistan and for other reasons which I have posted our plans are on hold as well.

If you ever need anyone to vent to or some thoughtful care package ideas, I’m here for you.  Deployment is hard. I’m 7 months into it and the first 30 days were the hardest.
