If you're heading to the ocean for your nuptials, some beach wedding ideas are in order! For starters, I already made a beachy collage in
my August wedding ideas section, but hey, you can never get enough ocean
inspiration. For the first collage, I'll go with a nautical theme in traditional colors of navy, silver, and white.
Nautical Wedding Ideas
The beautiful-yet-simple dress is from Provonias, which looks great for beach wedding ideas.
I like the monogrammed tote filled with sandals, sunscreen, and a beach towel as a gift to your bridesmaids for one beach wedding idea. This one is from Gracious Bridal.
To really heighten the lime accents, use actual limes in beverages, cakes, and centerpieces. The same is true using
fresh tropical fruits like pineapples and mangos for drinks. If you can, go with seafood for the main course.
Lastly, consider a sand ceremony. No better place or time than the beach! Instead of lighting a unity candle, you each pour colored
sand into a glass to form a unique design. The jar can be saved for years, and you can use any color. Kits are available, but since it's just
colored sand and glass it's not difficult at all to make one yourself.
Kits are sold at online outlets like Beau Coup here.
Beach and Nautical Shoppe
I was surprised at the number of pretty cute favors out there. Most favors I think, "wait, I'm supposed to be pay that much? For... an ugly box? Yeah no." These, I
think, can work really well for a nautical theme. Many of these you might be able to make yourself,
like the sand ceremony and customized shells. It's worth a look for some inspiration. If you see anything you like, though, click on the
picture and you'll be taken to the site where you can snag it.
