Create A Nautical Beach Wedding: #3 of 4 Beach Wedding Looks

July 01, 2016


In this third blog post of the four beach wedding themes, we look at how you can create a nautical beach wedding style.

Nautical beach theme weddings are typically held in a yacht club, mid-to-upper-end oceanside restaurant or marina function venue.

The event can be more polished decor-wise than the casual rustic natural beach wedding, but it remains somewhat more restrained in colour and style than the laidback Hawaiian beach theme.

The most popular nautical colours are blue, yellow or red with white. Nautical flags, anchors, oars, ropes, light houses, ships, yachts and orange buoys are frequently used icons in invitations, menus and placecard settings.

Sailors are known for their love of a drink or three so references to drinking, and bars aren't out of place either. Since sailing requires navigation, a destination map (especially when you have a few venues connected with your wedding) can be appropriate, too.

Nautical weddings can include shells and starfish, but usually just as accents. Like the rustic beach wedding theme, nautical theme weddings tend to favour white or pale seashell decor, and not the pink or coral versions.
