It mixes just fine! I’m in a wedding in September and half the guys are in dress blues and half are not. My friend made sure to coordinate the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses carefully though so we all blend without being loud. We’re wearing long black halter dresses with gold sashes. It’ll look fine, i’ve seen it at other weddings, too. My Fiance is a captain and we’ve gone to a few army weddings in our haydays.

Well, my FH is wearing his Class As and the best man is wearing tux. I have seen pictures of the mix and it looks nice.

In our wedding, all the groomsmen will be in uniforms, plus my fiance, but his brother (the BM) will be in a tux. I think it should be fine! I’m pretty sure that when uniforms are involved, matching exactly doesn’t matter as much, at least in my opinion. 🙂

We’re doing this with AF mess dress. I actually think it’ll look really classy. I’m hoping it works out where every other Groomsmen is in uniform.

My fiance is in the Marines and all his groomsmen except 2 are in the Navy. The Navy guys are all wearing their whites, and the two civilian guys are wearing white tuxes. I think it will look great since all the bridesmaids are wearing navy blue dresses!

June Bug – that is a fantastic idea! i’ve been going back and forth with this problem, too! I like that solution.

I thought it would look weird too–but nope.  In every military wedding I’ve been to there’s some guys in blues and some guys in tuxes.  The most important part is that they all look handsome, and they do!

We mixed tan suits and white uniforms. Its not a big thing, but make sure the uniform you are putting a tux with is actually a tux equivalent!  Most people think the whites are like tuxes but they aren’t – they are suits. The tuxes are a whole other uniform.

I did a post about it:

I love the look of uniforms mixed w/ suits 🙂 I don’t think it looks funny at all.

My cousin is walking me down the aisle in his dress blues, and all of the groomsmen will be wearing suits. But I want him to rock those dress blues!!! He’s going to look amazing!

My groom and only one of the groomsmen (not the best man) will be wearing the same uniform, while the other 3 or 4 guys will be in black suits. It’s important to my fiance that he and his friend are in uniform. It’s be sort of odd, but it’s what he wants, so I’m going along with it.

Lilypad, its actually not odd at all. They put so much of themselves into being military that MANY of them want to be in uniform but include friends who are civilians.  I’d actually think it odd not to see it mixed.
