Military weddings rule! Sure, there’s the obvious fact that seeing our men dressed in uniform is awesome but there’s also a handful of other traditions like the sword arch that ends with the bride getting a tap with the sword on her backside, the cake cutting with the sword and in the case of US Naval Academy grads, ending the wedding by singing “Navy Blue & Gold”, their school song.
