First off I would like to thank you and your husband/FI/wives for your daily sacrifices and service to this country and I pray they return to you and your family safe and sound.
This isn't so much a question maybe more of a vent idk. Anyway a little background info... I got engaged last weekend to my wonderful boyfriend of 3 years but for most of those 3 years there has been 1,000 miles between us. He lives in Chicago I live in Florida. I hope I'm not coming off as bratty or whinny I know you deal with bigger distances than mine for longer periods than I have.
I know I have the luxury of just picking up the phone and calling Mark (my FI) but I don't know how to deal with the little things like shopping for centerpieces, invitations, etc. Yes I've done things without him before but it has never been for our wedding I don't know how to deal with those emotions and wishing he was here. We won't be traveling as much to see eachother since we will be paying for the wedding and a house shortly after so the only times he will actually be present will be when we look for venues, meet with the baker, the caterers, and for our e-pics.
How did you handle the stress of planning a wedding by yourself and being away from your SO? What did you do to keep him up to date in the planning.
Sorry if I offend or upset any of you for complaining over something so trivial when your SO's risks their lives everyday.
