Planning a Military Wedding

There is no reason couples who are planning to walk down the aisle should put their love on hold during active duty military service.

Today’s tips help soon-to-be military brides – and their grooms – plan their dream weddings.

If you can’t afford a professional, find a close friend or family member who can share the load – and stress.

Planning a wedding while on military deployment can be stressful and downright daunting. But it does not have to be! Consider enlisting the help of family and friends. Distribute responsibilities among friends and family based on their skill sets. Believe it or not, handing over these important duties to your loved ones may just be a welcome distraction for them until you return safely home.

Extended planning sessions are the way to go. During their leaves, couples can visit multiple Southeast Texas wedding vendors over the course of a few days. The experience may be intense, but if planned in advance and done correctly, it can yield very positive results. In some cases, for a couple with a serving military member, Golden Triangle wedding vendors might even be willing to come to a meeting place established by the couple (like your wedding venue or even your home). This saves military couples precious time running from one appointment to the next.

Just as a key to good relationships is communication, it also plays a role in wedding planning. Golden Triangle brides should take care to keep their grooms in the loop and vice versa. The article suggests delegating priorities to each partner to act as contacts. For instance, brides might handle the flowers and cake while grooms manage the music and food.

Lastly, advances in technology make virtual wedding planning a very real possibility for military couples in today’s modern day and age. Make use of tools like Google Docs to stay in touch about real-time details.
