Bon Mecredi mes amis! –yay my french is picking up! It’s another #WeddingWednesday and another “10 ways to rock your wedding” inspiration type of post. We have already dealt with the Beach wedding and today is one of my faves, a Nautical wedding!
Allow me to state the obvious, the term nautical speaks of something relating to or involving ships, navigation, or sailors and the seaside with generally. Inspiration for a nautical wedding could come from the colors and the objects used. So imagine yourself on a the seaside with some yummy sailors 🙂 and think of the colors and objects you find. As usual leave some room for creativity, with variations of the colors and the objects you choose.
Object Inspiration: Boats, ships, anchors, sailor uniforms, sailor hats, ropes, paddles, ship wheel, compass, ring buoy.
Color Inspiration: Navy blue, White, Sea blue, Sea green, Sandy/earthy brown, Coral, Stripes, Red.
