I am not a military bride (yet, FI is joining after we are married) but I have a question regarding the military and what to wear at weddings. FI's brother is currently in the services, and is in Iraq. He is coming back for our weading and told me he will be wearing his uniform and not a suit to our wedding (I can't remember what exactly it was called, forgive me). I was under the impression that only the groom wears the uniform if he is in the the Army or whatever service they are in, not various family members/friends/guests that are currently serving or are veterens.
This really sounds like I'm micromanaging and being a bridezilla - love his brother to DEATH and I am so proud of him, but he is incredibly egotistical and wants to wear his stuff because he wants to be noticed and be the center of attention. I feel like he should wear a suit like everyone else. I've spoken with several friends who have family members in the services and they didn't attend weddings in their uniform unless they were getting married themselves. I know this is really petty, again, I am so proud of him and wouldn't mind him wearing the uniform it's just the reasons behind it that piss me off because this is not the day or place to try to be the center of attention, and I find it kind of disrespectful. Help?
