You've always been captivated by the allure and abundance of the sea. Whether you have a deep love for the boating lifestyle, reside in a seaside community, or simply want to exchange vows near the water, a nautical-themed wedding allows you to express your shared passion for the waterside while staying true to your unique love story.

"A nautical wedding reflects the styles, textures, and lifestyle of the harbor, seaside, or boating life," says Rosemary Hattenbach, the creative director and principal owner of Rosemary Events, an event planning studio. "I encourage couples to tap into one aspect that inspires them and make it authentic to the location or their relationship."

To bring this special wedding theme to life, Rosemary incorporates colors and patterns of the sea, including shades of blue and white, striped motifs, and accents of orange. "We contrast these details with textures such as sailcloth, heavy weight rope, net, and industrial metals such as anchors, chains, and a compass," she explains.

Nautical Wedding Invitations

Before your big day arrives, your wedding invitations offer a chance to unveil your unique nautical theme. Will you go for classic invitations with a hint of the sea or fully embrace nautical-themed stationery?

Classic motifs and designs that perfectly complement a nautical-themed wedding invitation include stripes, nautical flags, rope detailing, and illustrations of a compass, anchor, or ship wheel. Rosemary also suggests incorporating canvas textures, oars, or vintage Chris Craft boats with wood accents.
