I love Nautical themed weddings-navy, crisp white, pops of color (usually yellow or red), star fish/sea shells, sand, lighthouses, rope-love love love.
It always makes an adorable theme for weddings too but can have a touch of sophistication if you do it right.
Normally I would touch on what style wedding dress goes best, but with this theme, you can really pick any: A-line, mermaid (that is probably my favorite), ball gown, short, long, etc. Maybe just nothing with a long train or veil since nautical themes are more light hearted and fun as opposed to serious and traditional.
Love the rope on the bistro table!
Nautical theme weddings are not just for destination weddings-but for anyone. Bring the ocean to the midwest!!
