I am re posting this because I put it on the wrong board
My BF is joining the Air Force soon. We plan on doing a JOP wedding before he signs his papers to join the military so I can go with him once he gets to his first base. We are planning on having a party next year for all family to come to once we get settled since I am finishing school and doing an internship in Disney in January. Should we get married before all of this happens? We ARE NOT doing this for the benefits( I know someone will ask, I have seen some posts on here). We have been wanting to get married for a while(have been together for 5 years), we were just waiting for one of us to get estblished first since we will both be 25 next year. I'm just looking for advice from other military wives/fiances/girlfriends because I never pictured the military in my life but now that it will be present, I want to make sure I am comfortable with everything. I'm also wondering about a bachelorette party and shower too. I'd obviously do the bachelorette party before we go to the JOP but I'm thinking of having the shower closer to the party with our family next year since we aren't inviting anyone to the JOP other than a few friends and our parents/grandparents.
