    Anything goes with the uniform! Don't over think it.
  • I spent 26 years in the military and have seen every color imaginable in military weddings.  NYC is correct - anything goes and will look wonderful.  The uniform stands alone.  Promise.
  • Agreed - it will be fine. Navy is a neutral.

  • The Marine Corps (in the future be sure to capitalize that because there are people that it will upset) dress blues do honestly match anything.  You won't go to a ball and see everyone's date wearing red, white, or blue.  They wear every color imaginable.  Same goes for weddings.  You just pick something you like and don't worry about it.  It will look great.

  • I agree with everyone else.  No matter the color of the uniform, it's considered a neutral.  Just go with what you like.  I've seen every combo imaginable.  The only combo I thought looked odd was a Scottish themed wedding where everyone wore the family tartan and the groom wore his Marine Corps dress uniform.  It didn't really go.

    I believe she's referring to the jacket, although the MC refers to it at "midnight blue".

    That ish is black! Although, I guess at midnight everything looks black. This is Stan by the way. :)
