All Aboard – Nautical Weddings!

Do youlove all things Hamptons &Yacht-Clubs? Than the nautical wedding is right up your galley. From start to finish, the guest should be immersed ina world of water, oceanbreezes andsofisticated casual class!

To begin, start with nautical themed invitations; a traditional blue and white with touches of red or the more playful message in a bottle!

For décor, stick with the go-to natural nautical elements and colors, incorporating sailing knots, starfish and shells, and nautical flags. You can also add yellows, oranges, and pinks for anod to thepreppy look.

Flowers should be simple but elegant – whites and blues with another accent color or you can stick with pretty greens, leaves and driftwood for a burst of natural color. Have fun with the cake and play it up to your lively theme.

The Brides Maids can wear a navy dress or an elegant light blue. Or if you choose one of the more vibrant colors, use their dresses as another way to incorporate your color choices – dont fear the stripe! Put the Grooms Men in navy jackets with kaki pants and a white button up – we love the sailing knot boutonniere!

For the venue, host your nautical wedding somewhere that has an ocean breeze drifting through with the smells of the sea. With a nautical wedding you could do a destination such as Balboa Island, Newport or Dana Point Harbor,or anywaterfront property. For those who want to fare the seas, a yacht would most definitely be the pi√®ce de résistance!
