Hi there!

So I just read your post and I realize you wrote it a couple of years ago, but I'm hoping you can help me with one thing:

In a military wedding, does the groom still wear a boutonniere? I've been seeing in a lot of photos that it's not done.

Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!


When you figure out love is all that matters after all, it sure makes everything else seem so small.

If your man will be wearing his uniform, then there should be no boutonnierre. Even though it is a wedding, the uniforms still have to be least as far as I know. I know my hubby always freaks out whenever i even mention his uniforms being altered or changed. I might be wrong though! But with how strict the military is about uniforms, especially the dress uniforms, I doubt that adding a flower will be "acceptable". Plus, with the nameplates and other ribbons that tend to be on the uniforms, a boutonnierre might just get lost in the mix.

It's the little things that bring beauty to life...

if the groom is wearing his uniform he most definitely cannot wear anything on his uniform unless it is government issued... meaning no flowers, even if he is wearing his personals.

You can do it with your cake topper, for example:

Or you can go with Marine Corps colors for your cake accents:

Truthfully though, I'd be more inclined to pick the cake I loved and just put a personalized figurine of me and my sweetie in uniform as the cake topper. Just because you're marrying a Marine does not mean that the wedding has to be completely Marine. Your life will be the Marines...your wedding should be a little of you, too.

If you want to include the Marines on your cake, you can do what we're doing. We're having three tiers and the middle one will have Semper Fi written on it in yellow (our color) icing. We're also having a Marine cake topper.

Our favor stickers will have our names & date on it with the EGA in yellow as the background. The table number cards will as well.

We also found placecards and napkins with the EGA on them in gold.

People do all sorts of motifs and themes for their weddings. If you want a Marine themed or EGA motif wedding, go for it! It's gonna be a huge part of your married life (at least at the beginning) together, so why not make your wedding reception personal?
