Have a Nautical Themed Wedding
Whether you are a sailor or just like the preppy seaside look, a nautical wedding is a fresh theme you will love. The nautical theme works best for weddings held near a lake or sea shore.
Here are some ways to work the nautical theme into your special day.
Navy Blue and White Color Scheme – Navy Blue and White is the classic color combination for a nautical theme. These colors have a crisp appearance that can be used throughout the wedding. The groom and male attendants will look snappy in navy blazers instead of tuxedos, and bridesmaids can wear navy as well.
The nautical color scheme of navy blue and white is also frequently seen in bold strips, like these table coverings shown on Ruffled Blog.
Sailboat favor – These sailboat candle favors are a great way for your guests to take home a touch of the seaside. The sailboat adorned frosted glass votive holder comes in a clear box with a blue ribbon, all ready to place on your reception tables.
Sailor Knot Favor box – Try using thin rope to tie asailor’s knot around your favor boxes to add a special touch of nautical flare. Martha Stewart Weddings provides a step-by-step tutorial on how to tie this knot, officially named the Carrick Bend knot.
Guest Book Oars – If you live by the shore or plan to have nautical touches in your home, guests can sign oars rather than a guest book. The signed oars will make a special keepsake to remind you about your nautical themed wedding.
A nautical theme is a fresh look for your ocean or seaside wedding.
