I agree with what the other ladies say about not being set on doing your honeymoon now. But it may work out....

Everyone's situation is different. Here was ours - my DH snowbirded before BOLC for about 9 months. We got married one weekend during this time. And then a couple of weeks later he was able to take leave for a week and we went on our honeymoon. I'm not saying this will definitely work for you but it is something that could possibly work out. The place where my DH was snowbirding was pretty lax and had no problem with him taking a week of leave for our honeymoon. That is something you won't be able to really plan before you get to where you're going and find out how things go there. We didn't plan that trip until maybe a month or two before. So ya never know, it could work out!

yeah I was just curious as to when would be a good time, I think I will just play it by ear and see what happens :)

Thank you so much ladies for your input!! :)

When you know the date your LO is scheduled to go to OCS, you should know his gradution date as well. All the events I mentioned above, are within that week prior, leading up to graduation day.

I also agree with Wifey. Id plan after all training just because you never know with the military..anything can change on a moments notice. It can be a little irritating at first but you get used to it(I was and still can be a big planner) lol

Thank you so much kristen for that information! :) That really helps alot.

Where you told by you DH in enough time to get there for "graduation week"

Yeah I most likely wont make any plans for our honeymoon till after hes done with his training just so we are on the safe side :)

I would advise against trying to plan a honeymoon until he is out of training (all his schools) completely. You will have a better idea then of what will be happening in his unit and can plan a trip accordingly.

Hello lala, I cant help with the OCS questions.

We had a formal ball and Im pretty sure, almost every other class has as well. We also had a social before the ball which was I believe, business casual for the dress code. I wore a floral print sundress & wedges. I went down to GA for what was "graduation week." I got down there the day before the Social and stayed for about a week until Graduation day. The Social, ball, and Graduation are all over about a weeks time.

Not sure about the question on phones & internet. Our class could only use phones during "personal time" which was from 9pm-10pm during the week and they had passes on weekends so they could obviously use them then. As for the internet, I believe this would fall under that personal time as well. During personal time the guys also had to shower and I believe some were assigned certain duties they had to get done in that hour too.

He will report to BOLC B after graduation. Depending on his class start date there, he may snowbird or not. Its really hard to "plan" anything with the military so I hope you guys can figure out sometime to take your honeymoon! Good luck to you and your LO!

Okay So I have a few questions and information or advice would be wonderful!

First off from I am hearing my Fiance's gradutation is Nov 4th so my first question is when should I there to have enough time for family do and all that stuff?

Second, For OCS graduation do they all have a ball or formal dinner I need to be aware of? Should I also get there in certian amoount of days to get ready for all these events?


Also from what I have read during OCS they get more time with there phones and internet?

Lastly if he branches is MI from OCS wil he go straight to his BOLC after graduation? By this time we will be married so I am trying to plan our honeymoon sometime either between OCS and BOLC or after his BOLC...


I think thats all my questions for now, any input or advice would be so helpful!!!

Thank you! :lol:
