I've been snooping on this board for a while (collecting all kinds of amazing ideas!) and this is my first board post, so i should probably give a brief bio over myself:
I am getting married to the most wonderful soldier (Army) that there is in just over one year (September 27, 2014)! I know I have quite a bit of time left, but it doesn't hurt to start getting information ahead of time
I was wondering if anyone has done a unity ceremony that incorporates the military in any way? My FI and I have decided that we do not like the sand or candle ceremony, and I have been toying around with the idea of the Knot Tying ceremony as well, but we have never seen one actually done and are afraid that it may not go any smoothly as we'd like. While we aren't having an official military wedding, we are incorporating many things into the ceremony, such as wearing his dress blues/arch of sabres/perhaps cutting the cake with the sabre and I think it would be amazing to add something in the unity ceremony that incorporates the military as well.
