According to the book description of The Military Wedding, “There are military unique planning concerns and situations that face the bride or groom marrying a military person that a civilian couple does not always have to face, such as access to the wedding venue and complying with military rules and restrictions. Most wedding planning and etiquette books briefly address military weddings but not with enough guidance and detail to satisfy many military brides. Baldwin’s book is a guide to planning, traditions, and unexpected situations. This book is a handy supplement to your main wedding planning and etiquette books.”
