*Raises hand.* I’m marrying a Marine. We are waiting until he finishes his graduate program so it won’t be until Fall 2011. Our plans are going very slowly. How about you?

I know that proud feeling. Congrats to you too! We aren’t doing too much military either. He will be in uniform for our church service and change into a suit/tux (the groom is going to have an outfit change, not the bride!). We are going to do the sword arch and cut our cake with his sword and that’s really about it.

My Fi is also wanting to change out of his blues for the reception but I want him to stay in them- SO hot!! I don’t know how different US ones are, but his trousers have braces (suspenders?) and then he wears a tunic over the top, so I was suggesting getting him a Tshirt that says ‘groom’ on it and matching ones for his ushers, so he can at least put his tunic back on to leave the reception at the end of the night!! I think he wants a full on change to a morning suit or tux though… not sure how we’re going to resolve this one!! hehe

Hehe I have no idea who this woman is, but I will happily steal her wedding picture from google so you can see his lurvely blues (my Fi is hotter than hers :p)

 

here’s someone from a distance so you can see trousers too:

Again no idea who this is, my Fiance usually wears ceremonials as he’s a military musician (he deploys as a medic though!) Hope this helps you ladies visualise! And can one of you post a pic of the US blues, I’m just curious!

This is my Fi in half of his ceremonials getting ready for a concert with one of his ushers- you can see better here what I mean about suspenders and tunics hopefully! (He’s a complete babyface, you wouldn’t think he’s 23!)

πŸ™‚  Yay! I only just now found this thread.

 

My man is a US Marine. And he’s awesome.

 

He’s deployed right now, but we’re getting married when he’s home!

 

And… surprise…. I have NEVER seen him in his dress blues!

@ellabee: I can totally believe you have never seen him in his blues! I had never seen my Darling Husband in his full dress whites (Navy) until the wedding.

Sorry for jumping in as  Navy wife, but in the US, the Navy and Marine Corps are very, VERY close. πŸ™‚
