There are lots of details involved in planning a wedding, especially military weddings. Although there is no official protocol for military weddings, there are lots of elements and traditions that can be incorporated into weddings. There are some rules to follow-you will want to make sure you pay attention to regulations on wearing uniforms. Using proper military titles on invitations is also a must.
The usual wedding traditions are increased when the military is involved. You may want to factor in a sword or saber arch after the ceremony. Six or eight service members line up in pairs and make an arch with their swords for the bride and groom to walk under after the ceremony. As for uniforms, everyone has to agree to wear the same uniform as the groom. The bride can wear her uniform as well. A great idea is for the recessional to be your branch’s song. Military theme music is always popular with wedding guests.
One of the best-kept traditions is cutting the wedding cake at a military wedding. The tradition is that the bride holds the sword with the groom’s hands over hers and they cut the cake together. Other things to take into consideration at military weddings are military protocol in seating your guests by rank. Your installation protocol officer can help look over your seating chart to make sure you follow all of the protocols of your branch.

We Specialize in All-Inclusive
At first, we thought all-inclusive meant just having all the infrastructure ready to go for the couple, so what looks like such a simply beautiful, largely outdoor wedding could be as clean and simple as the lines of the tent. There should be no hassles about getting in all the infrastructure and having it ready for your wedding. We did not want to witness a rental truck showing up at the last minute and a mom or bridesmaid, or the couple themselves, setting up chairs and tables–even mowing the yard–on the morning of the wedding. These were all things Jeanne witnessed repeatedly over the years. No wonder people were exhausted before their wedding even began…
