    KWLynn9489:  my FI is active military but we wanted a certain look/style so he decided against his dress uniform. If you’re incorporsting anything military related then I say go for it! It also saves a little money from a tux rental or purchase.

    we had a military wedding (and we wanted to save money on a tux rental), so my husband wore his blues. if it matters, we didn’t incorporate every military wedding tradition, we just had an arch of sabers following our ceremony.

    i think he should wear whatever he wants and is comfortable with. and also, i wouldn’t worry too much about coordinating with the uniform if you don’t want to. i didn’t plan my wedding colors around the colors in the uniform and i think it looked fine 🙂

    edited to add: if you want the best of both worlds, he could wear his uniform for the ceremony and change into a suit/tux for the reception. we considered doing it that way.

    We are not having a military wedding, and my FI wore his dress blues when he got married before, so he feels very strongly against wearing them. I don’t think you’ll have to coordinate around the colors. But we also want to avoid renting a tux so my FI would like to purchase a very nice suit. We are having a wedding at the church but a less formal reception, so the suit will work and he is going to buy something he will definitely wear again. Have you considered that option as well?
