Apologies in advance if this is addressed elsewhere! We are planning a wedding, tenatively next Fall/Winter 2011. My fiance is Army but we are getting married in San Diego where no Army is stationed. The closest Army base is a couple hours away. My aunt works at the Marine Corps Recruiting Depot and had suggested we have the ceremony/reception there (excellent location, and even more excellent for our wallets!). Everyone involved seems to be fine with this (having an Army wedding on a Marine base), however, I have a question about the sword/saber arch. Would it be terribly akward to have Marine's doing the arch while fiance walks down in his Army blues? I asked my fiance and he said he'd be fine with it but that some people might think it was odd, which I absolutely get. What do you ladies think? I do not have to have the arch if it would be too weird, but I thought if this mixing of branches happens frequently. the arch would be a fun addition! I do realize this is thinking way in advance, but it crossed my mind so I decided to ask so that if the consensus is that it will be inappropriate I won't get my hopes up for too long about having the arch
PS. And, hello! I am new here, been lurking around for years but have the ring now and am going into true planning mode!!
