When it comes to design, fashion and style, there is one particular trend that never goes out of fashion. We’re talking Nautical! Breton stripes, anchors, ropes, boat’s lifebelts and ship’s steering wheels are only a few of the iconic elements of this hot summer style that can inspire lots of jolly nautical wedding ideas and spice-up the entire experience of your special day.
From themed invitations and guest favors to clothing and decor and entertainment solutions, there are so many ways to incorporate nautical motifs and seafaring elements in the nicest of ways.
Choose any color combination – traditional navy blue and white, hot red and yellow, mysterious teal and grey, jolly green and white… Any of these will make a perfect background for the wedding theme decorative elements. Nautical stripes look perfect on tablecloths, chair slip covers, decorative ribbons, and even on the groom’s tie!
Anchor yourself to someone special!
For all that it represents, anchor is one of the most loved and frequently used nautical style wedding decorative elements. Show your devotion to the special ones in your life by incorporating an anchor in your wedding theme. Anchors can be displayed on wedding stationary items, guests’ favors, included in the wedding décor compositions, and also incorporated as most adorable elements in the bride’s and groom’s jewelry and accessories.
Tie the knot on a nautical rope!
A ‘pirate’ or a ‘sailor’, if you are an adventurous soul and in love with the sea, Nautical is your style, and this simply cannot do without ropes. You can incorporate nautical ropes in every wedding décor solution and arrangement, to add a strong feel and statement. And how better to ‘tie the knot’ than on a nautical rope?!
Turn the steering wheel of your new life together to the new horizons and challenges that await! Exciting! That is why the wheel is such a popular nautical theme element. It often either replaces the anchor, or pairs it, so you can incorporate it in the same way as the anchor. The boat’s steering wheel also pairs very nicely with nautical rope.
