Check with the commanding officer, protocol office or
chaplain's office at your military installation for the proper
protocol. Each base differs as does each branch.

There are many military Reception venues in San Diego that are available to Military personal and their family and friends. Military wedding requirements are different depending on rank and branch. Many military couples opt to get married in their own church and have receptions in a hotel or other venues other than a military base.

Military wedding are not that different than civilian weddings. One tradition at the reception is that Military guests are escorted to their seats in order of rank. Music selection will include regimental and the theme service branch song of the Bride and/or Groom.

Bridal couples will find a military wedding detail to incorporate into their Military wedding decorations, such as American flags on the cocktail napkins, chocolate flag favors, customize dog tags as placecard, and add the colors of the unit(s). Choice flower colors may be red, white and blue!

The highlight of a military wedding reception is when it's time to cut the cake. The groom will present the saber or sword, to the bride, one belonging to the groom if he owns one. The bride will cut a slice of the wedding cake as the groom rest his right hand over hers.
