Ship Ahoy! .......Nautical Inspiration

Maybe you are getting married on distant shores, a beach, overlooking a marina or harbour or even on board a beautiful yacht or boat.

Having close family who serve in both the Navy & Royal Fleet Auxillary i knew it wouldnt be long before i looked at inspiration of a Nautical Nature.

So i have put together a few ideas and handy tips below......... enjoy!

You could go with the Obvious Choice of Navy & White, this looks clean & elegant,  Silver is also a great colour to compliment your theme

Or you could add a third splash of colour how about ....


Yellow or Gold

If you dont fancy Navy as your main colour, what about a summer breeze Nautical Theme, i think this would be a beautiful combination for a beach or destination wedding

 i love the way this bride has used a Royal Blue as accents for her wedding.

If you are having a destination wedding, dont forget to think practical as well as style, make sure your dress is made from a material that will travel well.

If you are getting married on board, then a shrug is a good idea, to keep those chilly winds away.

Beautiful cakes designed using shells for decorations

and simple but effective table centres

what about favours?

I instantly fell in love with these "messages in a bottle"

and these rather cute starfish candle holders

These little origami boats are fab

and these little boats can double up not only as place card holders but as favours too as a photo holder.

For three weddings i have used pebbles or large cobbles, hand painted with guests names on, these doubled up as place settings and favours for them to take home. 
If your feeling creative why not paint your own, but if you have a large wedding party this can be very time consuming.

Another great idea is to take some nice photos of your beautiful location and have them made into magnets, guests cant take these home as a reminder of your perfect day.
