I need a little advice on wedding etiquette. I have been invited to a civilian wedding by two friends from school who are getting married (obviously). The bride has requested that I wear my uniform (blues). What's the deal with this? Am I allowed and do I need permission and if so, who from? Also, there is some chat about half-drawing my sword when the vicar asks if there's anyone who knows why these two may not be married etc. Is this only for military weddings?
