Love Ahoy!

The beach has always been prime real estate for weddings. The glistening sun, sound of the waves crashing and finally that feeling of sand between your toes. You can just imagine all the guests leaving their shoes at the beach access point together making their way down to the beach, mingling, waiting for the music. Then as the music plays one after another the bridesmaids clutch to their bouquets and whisk themselves done the sandy aisle, followed by the bride. Making her way down the beach as the sun glistening on her skin, and rays of light peer through her soft loose curls. From adoring eyes to emotional breakdowns, it’s the groom reaction that truly takes her breathe away.

Ok, let’s get back on track. So by now you can probably tell we here at Luv Bridal think about beach weddings A LOT! They are fantastic for so many different themes in particular, nautical weddings. To help our gorgeous Luv Brides infuse a little seaside style to their wedding day we wanted to share some inspiration and help steer you in the right direction.

First of all, nautical weddings generally stick with a navy and white colour palette. But, it is safe to throw in modern, trending pops of colour like mint, blush pink or even gold. Think anchors, nautical strips and knots. Anything involving ships, navigation or the beach.

Set the tone with your guests by reeling them in with nautical themed wedding invitations, complete with blue ribbon and rope trimmings.

Nothing says nautical more than preppy stripes. Navy and white striped ribbon, table clothes, shoes, bow ties. It’s a fun and easy way to add a striking, yet subtle pattern into your theme.

The wedding dress. A nautical themed wedding would not be complete without a wedding gown that’s super-romantic and encompasses vintage charm. This opens up so so many different wedding dress styles, like lace wedding dresses, short wedding dresses, flowy beach wedding dresses or even a mermaid wedding dress.
