My husband & I were married December 16th, 2010. To make an extremely long story short, our special day was ruined by him getting food poisoning, yep, that's right, on our wedding day. Being left at the alter multiple times so my husband to be could to get sick was the worst experience ever, for both of us. We paid for the entire thing out of pocket, simply because our parents didn't have the resources to carry on the tradition of footing the bill, or even part of it. It is just a very tough spot, financially it will be years before we could do it again, but emotionally, we both want/need it. He is leaving for his 2nd deployment February 2013, so I figured what's better then the wedding you deserve waiting for you post deployment? Thought i'd give this a try. Anything helps, thank in advance for donations, or for even taking time to read this.
