It’s finally wedding season (hurray for warmer weather!) and we thought it’d be nice to focus on one of the most pivotal moments for military families – the wedding day. For military spouses and service members alike, this is the beginning of a grand adventure. We’ve asked our staff members for words of advice to celebrate this occasion, along with a few fun pics to share.
Get involved. Get to know the other spouses. Who knows, you might just meet your next best friend! –Army Spouse
Bring a sense of humor to your military adventure. You never know where the journey will take you.—Marine Corps spouse
Remember, it’s not where you are, but who you’re with. Your next assignment could be a hole in the wall, but if you make the best of the situation with those around you, it could be the best assignment you’ve ever had. Attitude is everything!—Air Force spouse
Try not to get overwhelmed by the new lingo full of acronyms and such. You have the rest of your military life to learn it all!—Army Spouse
Treat your friends like family. You may be thousands of miles from your closest relatives – but your friends and neighbors – they are your family, too. Embrace them.—Air Force spouse
It’s an honor to be a part of such a special community; focus on the positives and count your blessings.—Army spouse
