@Christina0828:  One thing I did that was unique was to make a corsage and bout specifically for DH’s parents, as they are very much Proud Army Parents. With some advice from a few Bees, I got to work and the results were a-maaaa-zing (I think). The parents loved them!! I made fabric tulips out of BDU fabric (they were super, super easy to make) and put the bout into a rifle shell casing, and yellow ribbons everywhere. Since you have a lot of time, it might be neat to make some fabric flowers like this to incorporate into your decor??

The dog tag reads “My son gained a wife, and I gained a daughter. June 2, 2012”

The only thing we are doing military related is my garter and we’re being introduced to the song from Top Gun (since he is AF) Highway to the Danger Zone. Aside from that, he didn’t really want too much miiltary related items, and he’s not wearing service or mess dress (gray tux instead) I wanted him to, but he told me “would you wear your work clothes to the wedding?” Well….Good luck with your planning, I’d love to see what you come up with!!!

My garter is camo with the EGA on it, my cake topper is military inspired, and since no one is letting me wear his tags on my wedding day I will be wrapping them around my bouquet.

@Christina0828:  No problem, you can find some really cute cake toppers on etsy. Especially by a lady who owns a shop called gingerbabies. She gives her military customers discounts, but I’m making mine myself because I could make it for a lot cheaper! Having a BA in animation and game design has it perks!

@Christina0828:  I’m not a military bride but I follow a couple on Pinterest 🙂 Here are some ideas:

ring pillow:

Necklaces for the BM Party

Candy bag favors with dogtag keychain

Somewhat obvious color choice 🙂

If you sew, these would be easy favors:

These cookies could be a cute favor too

Take inspiration from his dress blues
