When your future husband and groomsmen are from the military, instead of wearing boutonnieres they wear their embellishments that they’ve been awarded throughout their service.

When planning the exit of your reception, remember that you can have an archway of swords. I always thought this tradition was so beautiful. Members of the navy and coast guard use swords while members of the Army and Marine Corps have sabers.
