I’d love to help, but I’m not sure what evening mess dress uniforms look like or dress blues.  Could you post pictures for us so those of us that aren’t as familiar with these uniforms could help?

P.S.  Thank Fiance for his service to our country.

The groom’s mess dress looks like this (guy in the middle):

The NCOs will be wearing this (guy in the middle):

My advice would be a daffodil yellow Bridesmaid or Best Man dress coupled with navy accents.  Style me pretty listed navy, white, and yellow as spring colors, so I think you have a lot of leeway to play with the combination of those colors so that your wedding will have a spring feel and also tie in to the Marine Corps dress blues.  I think the color you want to avoid adding to the palette is the red.  The only place you should see it is on the uniforms.  If you stick with that, I think you could still have a very springy wedding!

I would also recommend using yellow tulips for accents as they are very springtime and will be in season in April!

Oh i like the yellow! That’s very springy. My friend had a military wedding and we wore black and champagne and the officers wore dress blues.

Linen would be a nice, soft color, too
