What do private Marines do?

If there's a wedding and a Marine wants to wear his dress blues, but he's only a private, what does he wear on his shoulder since the rank e-1 (private) doesn't have an insignia?

Also, how long does it take, on average, to get promoted from E-1 to E-2 in the USMC?

    He wears his rank on his Dress Blues whether that rank is visible or not.

    6 months, really 1-2 months after boot camp but SOI won't promote you and some schools will tell you to wait till you get to your unit.
