    Captain Pinning Ceremony

    Advertisements
    What do people usually wear?

    Dh was deployed when he got 1LT so obviously I wasn't there but they are having a pinning ceremony for his Captain pinning since there are a few of them within the Battalion. When he got commissioned everyone there wore nice cocktail style dresses.

    This is my little sister and I'm planning a sneak attack to steal this dress next time I'm at my parents house
    What do yall think?
    Is it too high school prom-ish??

    i think it might be a little on the formal side... but thats just my opinion... I would think more cocktail/sundress type thing...

    Maybe if it was shorter? like knee length...

    When my df made captain it wasn't that fancy! I was at both his promotion to 1LT and captain and people were just wearing nice pants or skirts and tops. I can't remember exactly but i wore something that I'd wear to a nice dinner out. Her ceremony was in a classroom so it wasn't that exciting!

    I would say maybe between that and a sundress.

    When DH made LCDR I wore dress chinos with a nice top and slides The pinnings before I wore a sundress or something I would wear to church

    I think thats a bit too formal. I would go with a nice skirt and top, or a cute sundress.

    I'm sad, dh won't be at a traditional unit when he makes captain, and they didn't much for 1LT, so he won't get a promotion ceremony until major.

    oh that sucks! I was at his commissioning ceremony but his parents pinned him since we were just bf/gf and I missed 1LT pinning cause he was in Iraq. So im so excited I will get to pin him this time!!

    I got to agree my DH is a CPT and when he makes MAJ that dress is more for a Ball VS a Promotion Pinning. I would suggest a nice Sun Dress
