I know im super late on this, but maybe this still applies to you or someone else reading this. My fiance and I (dual military) are planning a wedding for a year from now, however we have legally been married for almost 2 years. our friends and family do not know and we only told our closest 2 friends. we didnt do it for money, however, we did it to be together. they were not going to station us together and we had already done 2 years apart. i wasnt doing that again! point is... everyone is different. and truthfully, this is INCREDIBLY common in the service. at the end of the day, do what is right for you and your family, but if you know you are getting married and cant afford the wedding you want/deserve/have been dreaming about forever, then get married and have the wedding when you can. Ive come to find that a wedding is different than a marriage.. the wedding isnt always the start of a marriage.
