Dress blues too dressy?

Recommended Posts

Yes, it's perfectly ok. I wear Dinner Dress for Elegant Nights, but I see folks in their Dress Blues (or Alpha's depending on your service branch) on every cruise I've been on.

Years ago when I was still on active duty (Navy), I wore my dress whites for one of the formal nights. It drew a lot of attention, and at times during the evening fellow guests would stop me and ask me technical questions about the ship (thinking I was one of the ship's officers). :o

 

I had several drinks bought for me before that night was over! ;):D

Yes, yes, yes. I agree that I love seeing our military in their uniforms. I'm a military mom and shed a tear any time I see our soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen in their uniforms.

Not only is it appropriate, he will be the most appropriately dressed person there! Honey, a dress uniform is accepted and appropriate everywhere, for all and any occasion! Expect a lot of people thank him for his service, shake his hand and salute him! Have a WONDERFUL Cruise!

Just cruised on Pride last month and wore Dinner Dress Whites for Elegant Night. The wife and I had our picture taken with the Captain. I've worn my Dinner Dress uniform every cruise, and have seen folks wearing their uniforms as well. I only saw one other guy this time, a Navy Senior Chief in his Dress Whites (aka Choker Whites). And yes, I was asked questions about the ship, the schedule and other technical questions by other guests who mistakenly assumed I was one of the ship's officers. :')

Wondering if it's acceptable for my husband, who is active duty military to wear his dress blues on formal night?

 

 

Absolutely!! I'm military as well and I've worn my service dress for formal night... just be ready to be stopped a lot and thanked for your service... It's humbling and I definitely wasn't ready for that much gratitude.
