If you’re going for a by-the-sea feel for your wedding, you have to set the scene with the right invitations. What better way to do that with a little ocean blue and an anchor? Send your friends and family this Vintage Nautical Invitation, which has a bit of seaside rustic flair – perfect for that beach wedding.
At the head table, identify the seats of the bride and the groom by hanging a few flotation devices on the back of each chair with “Mr.” and “Mrs.” printed on each one. It’s a fun and super simple way to incorporate your theme.
Whether it comes to your reception table linens or some decoration for your beautiful bouquet, navy and white stripes are a bold way to bring in some color to the big day while still adhering perfectly to the theme. Tie some navy striped ribbon around the stem of your bouquet, and do the same with your table linens to bring the look together – I promise it won’t look too matchy-matchy!
Instead of offering your guests the classic paper menus at the table, switch things up by printing your brunch, lunch or dinner menu right on a big wooden paddle for all of your guests to see (and stare in awe at your creativity).
Adhere to your theme with a little navy and gold (my absolute favorite wedding color combination). You can even opt to top your cake with a gold anchor. I love the pops of color from the bright red flowers on our style board! It really stands out among the blue and gold trim.
Dress up your flower girl
How cute are those anchor-patterned dresses? Pair them with a navy sweater or a navy necklace and your little flower girl will be ready to go and more adorable than ever. If you want to stay away from patterns, look for a simple navy dress that you can amp up with gold jewelry.
