  • Wedding: February 2010

I’m a military bride, too! Well I"m not the one in the military, my fiance is (Air Force), but I can’t wait. We’re hopefully going to coordinate some military aspects into the wedding. Oh! And I just found a military board on here, it’s under the "cultural boards" http://boards.weddingbee.com/board/military. ๐Ÿ™‚

Wow. Talk about being spacey – I think this wedding planning is already getting to me. Sorry, Peaches! I didn’t realize you already posted this in the Military thread. ๐Ÿ™‚

 I think we’re planning on having my fiance wear his dress blues, along with two of his groomsmen (they’re also in the AF), then the other groomsman will just wear a suit. I’d love ot have the Arch of Sabers, so that’s my fiance’s one and only job  – to find out how to get one for our wedding!

  • Wedding: October 2009

hi! I’m almost a military bride (i’ll explain!). My FI is finishing law school and has been offered a position as an Air Force JAG. He’s always wanted to be in the military, and is so proud to finally be able to give back to his country. We’re getting married in October 2009, and he’ll leave for training in January 2010. Then we find out where we’ll get stationed first! I’m so proud of him, and really excited that we’re making this journey together. He was super bummed that he won’t be commissioned by the time of our wedding, because he wanted to wear his dress blues. But I told him that 15 months of engagement was quite enough, and i’m not postponing it another 6!!

  • Wedding: September 2009

We are planning a regular wedding.  Even though I love the fact that my FI is in the Navy and think he is so darn handsome in his uniform, that’s not what he is all about to me, I am looking forward to see him in his tuxedo since I get to see him in his uniform often.

peaches_skittles: I’m a woman in the military too! (CG). I say go for the cake cutting with your sword, honey. I inwardly giggle at the thought of my civilian husband using MY sword to cut our cake with ๐Ÿ™‚

The first photo is from our wonderful photog, and the second one is from a guest.  The first one – so pretty and a beautiful tradition right?  The second – the after effects!!  Ouch!!!  For anyone who doesn’t know – its tradition for the best man to swat the bride on the butt as she exits saying "Welcome to the Coast Guard!"  (or whatever branch it is).  Also, as you try to walk through, they cross swords in front of you and you have to kiss to "unlock" the arch.  We did cut the cake with the sword later.  They were both moments I wouldnt have exchanged for anything.

 Well he is wearing his Class "A" as well as other guests, our cake topper is a bride and her soldier and the garders are his unit colors and insignia.

@kurlynut – 100% agree with you.  I support my fiance’s choice to join the Navy, but it’s just one part of his life – not the end all be all of our lives.  I’m very excited to see him in a tux, and celebrate the wedding that I’ve always looked forward to.

  • Wedding: September 2011 - Franciscan Gardens

I was an active duty Marine for 4 years, got out for 2 1/2 and then was recalled to active duty as part of my IRR obligated service (when you enlist it’s for 4 years active duty and 4 years inactive duty where, at any time in those 4 years you can be called up if the service needs you). So now, I find myself planning my wedding with inspiration from Weddingbee allllll the way from Iraq! My "fiancee" (been together 6 years but not ‘formally’ engaged YET!!) and I met when we were both still in (the first time!) so it’s nice that he totally ‘gets’ everything that I’m going through now. I don’t think that we will be incorporating anything "Marine Corps" into our wedding… mostly because I’m just SICK of it! lol.

Miss Marine – you are an inspiration to us all, reading weddingbee and planning from Iraq! Good luck with the rest of your deployment and wedding planning as well. ๐Ÿ™‚
