I think it’s great that they are wearing their dress blues!  What a great way to honor them- and I have a feeling your guests and anyone that will see the pictures will think the same thing and not look at the colors.  Anyone can wear a tux not everyone has dress blues.

I understand the frustration, but aren’t you more excited that he has an opportunity to be at the wedding?

I definitely understand, I don’t like surprises either.  The problem is, he is a guy and I think he genuinely thought it would be nice to surprise you and your fiance.  I don’t think he was thinking about the fact that brides are stressed as hell and don’t want surprises that close to the wedding.  I do understand that the tuxes are already rented but if the guys that have to pay to not wear them are ok with it, then I don’t see much of a problem other than the color clash.

I know it’s not what you want to hear, but I wanted to be honest.  I think maybe it seems worse because of how stressed you are.  I genuinely hope everything turns out ok, though!

I can understand how much this is aggravating to you, but being from a military family, you gotta realise that this is a guy thing and beyond that, a military thing. Every friend/family member that I’ve had who’s been in the military when they went to a wedding or got married wore their dress blues.

It’s a tradition thing, and being in the military tradition means a lot. Especially to guys who are in the Army and the Marines.

Just be glad that his brother was able to show up and please, please, please…. don’t take it out on your husband-to-be. He’s probably thrilled that his brother was able to be there.
