Emperor of Kingwood --- 114 days ago -

A bride has sparked a debate over her family member’s outfit choices — and her reported reaction to those choices.

The unidentified woman posted about the alleged incident on Reddit’s popular “Am I the A--H---“ forum, asking if she was in the wrong for kicking out the man for wearing his military uniform.

“The son of one of my husband's family friends showed up to my wedding in his marines formal wear, complete with all his medals. Now, I have nothing against anyone in the military but this was a black tie optional wedding and frankly it felt very out of place and it seemed like he was just trying to show off. My wedding had over 300 guests and nobody else felt the need to wear something to make them stand out,” the bride claimed in her post.

Not sure if she means the medals or the ribbons. It would be against uniform regulations to wear full size medals to a non military event, but you can wear mini medals and ribbons to a social non military event.

A wedding is a time for the bride to be the attention whore. I don’t think it was right to kick him out for putting himself on display. But it was probably a pretty funny show of one upmanship for attention.

Every veteran there should've walked with him.

Should we expect more social grace from our veterans?

Their service is honorable, but is someone’s wedding really a good time to put their uniform and medals on display? The bride is expected to be queen for the day, not veterans.

They could post selfies on social media all day and it would be seen very different from parading with medals, ribbons, and trophies in their military costume during someone’s wedding.

If the man was on active duty and had no other formal clothes then the uniform was okay. If he is out of the service then he should have rented a tux.

Bridezilla b**ch! I feel bad for the chump marrying her!

He is active duty. Class A uniform is his formal attire suitable for all occasions. 

KwMillennial --- 114 days ago -

I’m still not seeing where the article says he was active duty.

But in my opinion, that’s not relevant. It doesn’t matter that the military considers it to be acceptable formal attire.

The issue is not about whether or not he could do it, it’s about whether he should. The bride wanted to be the center of attention. I know, she probably got to attention whore on her quincenera or sweet 16, every birthday, every Valentines Day, high school and college graduation, will attention whore on every wedding anniversary, every Mother’s Day, and maybe if she ever become a moderator on Kingwoodunderground she can attention whore there too. But other than that, that is the one day in her life she gets to have that. Why would someone with military experience need to show up dressed like that at someone else’s wedding?

Another reason I'm happily single. But IMHO, I'd be proud to have him or anybody to show off their service. It's about being there.

My cousin's hubby is a Captain in the Navy and wore his full dress to our DD's wedding. We didn't mind. But I can see how some would frown upon it as he did indeed stand out. Some thought he was her grandfather. (which we all got a good laugh over) But he wore it out of honor of the groom who is in the Navy.

It wouldn't bother me. In fact, it would not have crossed my mind that there was anything wrong with it to begin with, much less boot someone out and make a scene.

We live in a sick society. Sick in heart. Sick in mind and sick in spirit. The God of self centeredness and selfishness rules, unless you do something to stop it. Self worship will cause you to get offended real easy. It's a good way to be miserable, a lot.

Its obvious that you've never served and do not understand the protocol the meaning of the uniform. Is there ever an inappropriate time for an active duty service member to appear in uniform? That's why there are various uniforms for various occasions. Just so happens that the Marine Class A stands out.

Tink. I was also asked to wear my Naval officers uniform to my Daughters wedding. I declined. I did wear it to my sisters wedding because I was on active duty at the time. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 113 days ago -

But he wore it out of honor of the groom who is in the Navy.

Well don't Captain. The esprit de corps and pride in the uniform doesn't ever stop. 

sdanielmcev --- 113 days ago -

At least he didn't wear BDUs 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 112 days ago -

Tink. My apologies. I meant to say well done Captain.

Every veteran should have joined the Marine and walked. This is insane
