Tying the Knot: Military Style

Men and women serving in the US Armed Forces often opt for a military wedding, making the pomp and ceremony of a marriage ceremony more spectacular with national pride and respect for tradition. Dress uniforms, the wedding chapel on base or a military academy, white gloves, and honor guards with swords, rifles or sabers … these elements create incredible, unforgettable memories that will be cherished for many years to come.

Greeting Card Universe knows how much friends and family want to celebrate a military bride and groom’s special day with Congratulations – Military Wedding cards in select patriotic themes. We also offer unique Military Wedding Bridal Party Invitations designed especially for the occasion of a lifetime.

What Are Happy Shoppers Saying About Greeting Card Universe?
“I have purchased cards from Greeting Card Universe in the past and knew without a doubt when my Grandson’s 2nd birthday was coming & the birth of my Granddaughter that I would be placing an order. There was a problem w/one of the cards as I had opted to pick it up at my local Target. The issue was w/Target but Greeting Card Universe stepped in and offered to send me the card for free and did not charge me for shipping. This is incredible Customer Service. Where else can you personalize your special cards with your choice of font & choose your ink color. I will never buy a card in the store again. Thank you so much..” – Joan – July 17, 2014

“My card was stunning: beautifully printed, nice card stock, quick delivery. While editing the card I typed in the wrong date for the auspicious event on the front of the card (2004 instead of 2014). When I called to explain my error, the woman was generously helpful and took care of all my needs for changing the date and reordering. She was helpful, patient and good humored. (Her name may have been Dorothy?) Now, all I have to do is hope that the reprinted cards get to the East Coast in four days!”- Paulette, July 14, 2014

  • The US Marine Corps celebrates its 1775 founding on November 10 with a Birthday Ball.

Welcome Home From Boot Camp

“Boot camp” is a time when military recruits receive basic training and an introduction to life in the Armed Forces. Each branch of the U.S. military maintains and operates their own training facilities. How long boot camp lasts differs with each branch, but can be from 8 weeks to 12 weeks long.

If you’re a U.S. military recruit and looking for tips, check out How to Survive Boot Camp.

At the end of basic training and before their first deployment, a new military member typically receives leave (vacation). Many choose to return home to spend time with their family and friends.

Greeting Card Universe knows you miss your loved ones when they’re away. Our Welcome Home – From Boot Camp/Basic Training cardsare uniquely designed to send the right message of love and affection to a recruit who will be spending most of their time away.

And don’t forget a Fourth of July card to celebrate America’s most patriotic holiday!

“The retirement card is perfect. We were unable to find a retirement card locally for our son who is completing 25 years of service in the Navy. We were more than pleased with the numerous cards available on Greeting Card Universe website. The price was very reasonable and delivery was prompt. We will order from this website again when the need arises.” – William – June 25, 2014
