New to the group

Hi ladies! My name is Ashley. My fiance is Paul. He is in the Navy and currently deployed. I can't wait till he is home. We had to switch our wedding day 2 times. I hope our new date August 14,2010 sticks! Did any of you have to change the date?

Welcome Ashley!


I had to change the date a few times- and we have been engaged for 2 years because of his 12 month deployment. We are finally getting married (after 5 years) in less than 20 days :)

we had to change our date. We went from March 21 2009 to Dec 27th 2008.


We found out we were getting deployed after we had paid about 70% of the wedding off. It was either move it or kiss 5k goodbye...


Ashley, where is FI, and when does he get home??


Welcome aboard!!

Welcome!!!  We never had to change our date, but it was based on when a lot of our friends (and wedding party) would be able to make it due to deployment schedules.  I hope your Aug date sticks too!!!

We didn't change our date, but we did postpone our original plans and opt for a quickie beach wedding instead. Big wedding to come this year, yay!

Hey Ashley! I am new to this group also! My name is Megan and my FI is Rob. He is currently deployed to Afghanistan. Left June 3rd of last year, and is coming home within the next two months.. or else that is what his papers say. I really hope I dont have to change my date- it would really make me sad. I guess you really can't determine things like that though being a military fiance. I just read your post- and I wanted to throw out there.. WE HAVE THE SAME WEDDING DATE!!!!!! :D Hope all goes well.

I'm late too!  Welcome, Ashley!  


That would be awesome if they are able to come home early.  My fh is a Marine and is stationed in San Diego and I was there the day the Nimitz left.  I'll definitely be thinking about you when I hear on the radio that they're on their way back in!


As of now, it is looking like we will be good with our date.  My fh's unit has one year on, one year off, and they're gone for 6 months at a time.  So, essentially, I feel lucky as he's home for a year and a half out of every 2 years. We really want a summer wedding.  Had he been here this coming summer, I'm sure we would have gone for a late summer wedding this year, but instead, we're set for July 2, 2011.
