I’m not sure if anyone here can help, but my fiancé is in the navy. We got engaged last year and hoping to marry in 2020, but I’m having trouble finding a date as to when we can marry. Does anyone have any ideas? A lot of places need a good few months/a year notice in order to book but lately, I’ve only been finding out a week or so in advance to when he’s free. Is anyone else going through this?
Depends if you want a big day or not fused. As if you want a simple one then do register and then book a pub to have meal and dance in after.
Not much help to you, but my grandparents went through the same thing. Think they had the dress etc bought but she only got three weeks notice to arrange the church and reception.
My boyfriend is in the royal navy too and we got the date of his days off, as it's impossible to book with 1 year in advance as we don't know certain dates. So we are going for this summer.
My brother is in the navy and he eloped in vegas as it made it so much easier for them xx
Even if you were given set dates, they can change at any moment, all needs of the service! All I can suggest is get insurance that would cover it just in case!
Have you any docked old boats around you? You could always try them there's a couple near where we are and they seem to have alot of navy weddings on them
We did everything from announcing the date to saying "i do" in 10 weeks anything is possible x
Depends if hes on a ship or has a shore draft etc, ive just married my sailor and we booked a year in advance but made sure we had goid insurance. Debenhams we used Xx
We were really lucky when we booked our wedding and my husband is in the marines and they said they would honour the date. He came home just in time for the big day. We took out wedding insurance that would cover deployment and other military life issues just in case there was a problem x
My partner is in the Navy. They can put in for leave time. He’s currently deployed now for 5months. We set our date for feb 2020. They said they would honour it. But getting insurance just in case x
