Military Brides

Marine Bride

My younger sister is a new Marine and I'm planning her wedding for 07/04/13. Are there any traditions that I should think of incorporating?

Re: Marine Bride

  • Does your sister and her FI want a military wedding? They don't have to incorporate anything military related if they don't want to. 
  • Is she enlisted or an officer?  There are some traditions, like the saber/sword arch that are rated for NCOs or Os.  Lower enlisted are not allowed to have them.  Other traditions can be unit or job specific.  There really aren't as many military wedding traditions as most people assume.  
  • check out this Etsy site for great military related bridal jewelry for the bride & bridesmaids as well as cool cuff links for the groom and groomsmen can be found at http://www.etsy.com/shop/moonstonecreation. I really like the "love is trading in your perals for his dog tags" so sweet.  Since your sister is the Marine, I'm sure you could customize something special for her.
  • Well, you'd know if she could customize it since it's your etsy store.
