My fiance is in the Marines so we will be having him and his best man wear their blues.  Our colors are orange and purple (October wedding).  Most colors will go with the blues but you will have a harder time with the greens so hope for the blues.  I think you could probably pull off the browns and pinks with the greens and they would go with the blues also so you would be okay either way

I think you can just around him being basically neutral.

I like the idea of yellow, and you mentioned copper—which could be a really cool combo I think. I haven’t seen it before, but I think you could rock it. Copper looks fantastic with blues.

@kala_way:  I agree!  I think copper/ivory/yellow with hints of reds would be perfect for fall, plus would complement whatever uniform he ends up wearing.  Those colors would look great with blues, greens, and the general look of any of those uniforms.

I don’t think you need to worry too much about his uniform standing out in a bad way.  I think, if anything, no matter what colors you choose, he will stand out in a good way. 🙂

The good thing about a military uniform is that it will stand out against anything and it’s automatically patriotic. I personally vote you don’t try to match his uniform (either the Greens or the Blues). Pick out what colors you want, and he can wear whatever uniform he has at the time.

I did a rustic/ Patriotic/vintage/Military inspired wedding in MN as well at a cabin like setting. I used blues and reds with white. Obvoisly not BRIGHT blues and reds to go with a more color yet rustic feel.
