Color me Blue: Nautical Themed Beach Wedding

Have you already chosen the main theme for your special day at the beach? If you are still looking for that extra inspiration to really get you going, then you have picked the right place! Today I would like to give you some wonderful ideas for a beach wedding that is filled with fabulous nautical details. With accents that include lovely anchors, lighthouses, fishing nets, cute boats and shells, your wedding will look as if it’s worshiping the sea. If you just so happen to be a lover of the sea, going for a nautical themed beach wedding would be a perfect match! It could be simply unforgettable!

Before going nautically crazy with ideas, I want to remind you to be aware of the fact that the classic marine style involves a color combination of white and navy blue. With those primary colors present, you can then add a third color like red, pink or yellow. Once you have the right color combination, you can start choosing wedding décor that will emphasize the marine theme beautifully.

Chair decorations

Adding a little pink to your nautical theme calls for a cute gesture to symbolize the love that gave you a lifeline!

Getting creative with tissue paper braided in nautical colors is quite genius!

Mixing some red into your nautical theme will always add a fun pop to your wedding décor.

Table centerpieces

Pairing marine stripes with red floral arrangements would look beautiful against the ocean backdrop!

Sail away with miniature boats atop flourishing chrysanthemums that represents rushing waters!

Adding some small nautical favors, along with fresh seashells, some ribbon and rope would dazzle up your average candle for a beautiful centerpiece that glows perfectly at night.

For a more subtle nautical theme at your reception, adding some sea-worthy rope to your centerpieces would be quite clever!


If you are having a destination beach wedding, a friendly gesture of nautical luggage tags will inspire them to take more romantic trips with their significant other!
