Hello everyone! I am currently planning a military wedding and ran across this board that talked about POW tables. I love the wedding perks of marrying military (sexy uniforms, arch of sabers) but I would like to know if any of you know of any other traditional miiltary aspects that I might not know of or that might otherwise be overlooked. Thanks!

@Karissa:Welcome! I will let you know when I figure out more, as I figure it out.
Right now, what do I know about?
1. Special wording on the invitations (including “
2. Arch of Swords (Sabers for you)
3. POW/MIA table
5. Who you *have to* invite (check with your chain of command)
6. there’s more but I don’t know it all yet

@Karissa: Well you don’t have to invite people, but it’s just custom that you do. Usually that would involve whomever your FI works with on a daily basis, and up the chain one. So if he’s enlisted, it would be his squadron and his squadron XO/CO. Plus their families. Usually if your FI isn’t close with those people they will RSVP no anyway and send a card, but it’s still customary to invite them.
Because my wedding was a DW, and because my coworkers were going to be unavailable, I didn’t invite anyone like tradition says. It would have looked like a gift grab since I already knew no one could come!

Thats good to know! I will be having a DW also, in CO. Per custom I will invite his workmates. He is an officer and his boss is actually a civilian goverment contractor. Does he get an invitation?
