I'm at a real loss here. We are both from states in the midwest, but about 8 hours apart. We are currently stationed in Washington State. He is deploying soon, and once her returns, we wil have less than 2 months to report to Japan. I'm currently in the military, but will be getting out around the time of the wedding. To add to all of this, my mother is very ill and will eventually be passing away from chronic Hep. C and liver failure. I want her to be at the wedding, which means I would need to have it in my hometown. I know that my boyfriend (hasn't popped the question yet, but it is going to happen very soon) is ok with it being in my hometown, but then MANY of our friends can't attend it that live in Washington. I know his family won't have many attendees regardless, and he doesn't have a ton of friends that will be coming either.
So if I have my wedding in Iowa, how can I plan it from 5 states away, with a very ill mother, and a deloyed fiance. Not to mention we have less than 60 days to work with and you know how military dates can be in reference to deployment dates and such. I feel bad that I will have a large group of family and friends there, and he will have significantly less. Not to mention he has a few friends from Washington that he wanted as groomsmen, that most likely can't/wont attend a wedding so far away. I'm just at a loss of how to go about anything and any advice would help!
