There are quite a few military wives and wives to be on WeddingBee. If you don’t get a response, just “bump” your post occasionally. Sometimes weekend posts don’t get a lot of attention.

Here’s some information I found online:

Military weddings with all their pomp and circumstance are typically very formal. I’m an Army bride to be, and we’re deciding if that’s the route we’re wanting to go. 🙂

But I mean, you’re the bride! I think everyone will think you are lovely no matter what. Plus, there are plenty of tea-length gowns that are regal and beautiful! I think if you love it, go for it!

I would say your dress is appropriate, as long as it’s appropriate for your ceremony. The military won’t dictate what you can and can’t wear at your wedding.  There’s no rules when marrying any military member.

There are also no rules as far as having a “military wedding”. You put as much or as little military in it as you want. The only rules that would apply also apply outside of a wedding (for example, swords are for NCOs and officers only, no boutonnieres and that sort of thing).
