Many brides are choosing to focus their classic prep wedding on the nautical theme these days. Take a look at this Pinterest board to see how today’s brides are embracing the pretty seaside theme for their big day. You can see how preppy weddings are generally big on stripes and the nautical elements are great for a reception held on a yacht!
A great way to bring out the preppy elements on your big day is to adopt a looser dress code, letting your guests, bridesmaids and groomsmen wear slightly less formal attire. I love the idea of having your groomsmen don classic boat shoes like these delightful Sperrys. You don’t have to go with a cropped pant leg because that may not be for everyone, but these boat shoes could work perfectly with khaki or tan suits. You could even pair it all with a navy jacket or a tie with anchor graphic details on it.
For a classic prep wedding without the yacht, Brides.com recently had a slideshow of fabulous preppy ideas that use the color palette of white, pink and green. Pastels are a great option for a preppy wedding, and pairing any colored pastel with white can work perfectly! White is a great base color to make sure your wedding has the preppy feel you are looking for.
