Hi there, this is my first post and actually my first time on this "Knot" website. I'm looking for a bit of advice as I have NO CLUE where to begin with my situation. So here goes:
My boy and I are both stationed in Germany, both active duty Air Force. We met in 2011, dated for a while, decided to move in together last fall, and a month after we moved into our place BOOM they shipped my butt to the desert. Well, we've been throwing around the "M" word for a little while now (since before I left), and when I get home I know he's gonna be waiting with a ring.
So now comes the hard part. We live in Germany, his family is from Idaho, my family is from New York. I don't even know where to begin picking a wedding loaction, we're thinking the states so it would be easier for our families to attend. But then beyond that, how does one go about planning a wedding on a different continent? We're not exactly raking in the money, so our budget is pretty small. Also, I feel like a jerk for wanting to get married in the states because most of my close friends are in Germany.
Also, add in the fact that I've never even thought about planning a wedding and don't have a clue where to begin. The task is daunting at best.
Has anyone dealt with this or something kinda like this? Tell me your stories! I need ideas and advice!
