Boutonnieres and Retired Military?
Okay.... So this I guess is a two part question.
So my brother is in the Marines and will be standing with me in lieu of bridesmaids during the ceremony. He really want's to wear his uniform during for the wedding. My FI is retired Airforce and he's not sure whether or not he wants to wear his uniform b/c he's retired and doesn't know if it will look funny since he's a civilian now.
But, ever since my brother said he wanted to wear his uniform I think my FI feels pressure to wear one, too, so that he's not "upstaged" by just wearing a tux. What should I do?
Should I ask my bro to just wear a tux or tell my FI to wear his uniform? And is wearing your uniform after retirement bad etiquette?
My bro just got out of bootcamp and is really proud of his new uniform so I understand why he wants to wear it. But, I also understand where my FI is coming from.
Second part is if they both decide to wear their uniforms, are Boutonnieres typically put on them or no?
