Nautical Wedding Inspiration

A classic wedding theme that is perfect for couples who love for the ocean is a nautical wedding theme.   In my opinion it isn’t a nautical wedding without incorporating the color navy.  You can choose to use navy as your main wedding color or pair it with another color like yellow, red or even pink!

In designing your nautical themed wedding there are so many elements that you can incorporate.  For example, some brides choose to use the anchor throughout the wedding including on the invitations and even the cake.

One of my favorite ideas is to use an actual boat in the decor.  You can use it to string the place cards for guest seating or even to hold drinks during the reception.

Don’t be afraid to play with patterns like this large striped linen or even the navy chevron wedding cake!

Use the same pattern to cover the stems of your bouquet!  You can also use elements like rope for the grooms boutonniere.

Rope is also a great accent for other elements throughout your wedding.  It looks gorgeous in a bouquet or even on a wedding cake!

Look how cute this idea is to have guests leave you a “message in a bottle” instead of having a traditional sign in book!

Also love the idea of using paddles to create a directional sign!
