We can’t be the only ones dreaming of warm weather, sandy beaches, and crystal clear waters right about now. And on a scale of one to ten, a gorgeous nautical-inspired wedding is off the charts! From an actual boat bash to a seaside venue, there are so many creative ways to make a magical maritime celebration. Time to set sail on this adventure called marriage!

Even the most seasoned yachties would be proud of this décor! White chairs with blue ribbons will fill up your ceremony space perfectly. Knotted rope makes for cute and clever napkin rings. As for your tablescapes, we’re imagining lightweight tablecloths in a seaworthy blue and dishware with pretty brass accents.

Picking ocean inspired shades for your bridal party will elevate the style of your big day!  Shades like deep sea or marine are the perfect way to bring your bridesmaid look seaside. Long and airy with a pleated bodice and dainty neckline bow, this chiffon gown will go with the flow! Or stick with a short and sweet look with a midi length and flirty keyhole back. The flowing hankerchief skirt adds beautiful movement reminiscent of waves crashing upon the shore!

Beachy symbols go a long way in tying your theme into small decorative details.  A sparkly gold anchor topper for your tiered cake looks charming and chic. Use seashells to display table numbers for each of your guests. A lifebuoy isn’t just a lifesaver, it’s also a pretty way to display the newlywed’s name and wedding date!  

It goes without saying that anywhere near water will be a photo op you don’t want to miss! That goes for the happy couple and the bridal party too. A marina, seaside in the sand, at a lighthouse, or a beautiful boardwalk, you’ll be sure to capture the seafaring spirit! And if you can take advantage of snapping a few on-deck boat pictures, then we say anchors away!
