The Timeless Nautical or Beach Wedding
A nautical or beach themed wedding is timeless. It will never go out of style and your wedding pictures will be beautiful and classic. The perfect setting for the nautical couple is the big white tent on the beach, complete with a clambake. However, if you need a more formal setting, try a beach side hotel ball room.
Incorporate sand dollars and starfish into the beach wedding or nautical wedding. Lighthouses and Adirondack chairs are also great and more masculine touches. A great idea is to use the Adirondack chair place card holder frames as accents to the reception tables. They can also be given as wedding favors to the guests. Instead of rose petals, consider sprinkling little sea shells all over the tables. A few garden orchids are a nice floral touch, or consider using orchid gel candles instead. The orchid gel candle favor will later be appreciated by your guests to take home as well. In the details, seashells will pop up in bouquet picks or seashell toothpicks. Seashell place card holders are adorable and elegant as well. To be creative, try a lobster trap as a card box. For centerpieces, galvanized buckets filled with blooms are fresh and light.
For wedding favors at a nautical or beach wedding a wholesome touch is always nice. Homemade sugar cookies make a sweetly personal gift for guests, made even sweeter when you tuck them in cello bags tied off with a striped ribbon. Gourmet sugar cookies are also available for purchase in the shape of beach balls and boats. Other very popular and classic beach wedding favors are the chrome seashell bottle stopper favors. Also try the Set Sail Frosted Glass Sailboat Tealight Holders for a very elegant touch. The classic nautical and beach wedding favors are seashell wine stoppers, sweet sugar cookies, saltwater taffy, or chocolate seashells in white bon bon favor boxes.
Here is an elegant hidden treasure effect idea for a beach wedding. Mix up chocolate sea shells with gold or silver Jordan almonds. Tuck it all into a treasure chest favor box and tie with a sheer organza ribbon. It will be lovely among all the sand and shell. Another special touch to make your beach event stand out is customizing the champagne flutes. Hot-glue tiny shells around the outside of the flute and tie personalized ribbon to the stem. It is simple but breath-taking. Your wedding guests will never crack open a cabinet again without remembering that lovely, lazy afternoon they spent celebrating your love. Other beach wedding favor ideas are sea shell gel candle favors that will cast a little light at your wedding. Sea shell bookmark favors and seashell cookie cutters are also fun and useful beach wedding favors.
There is an endless supply of beach and nautical wedding favors on the market, as weddings on beaches become more and more popular. A beach or nautical wedding is relaxed yet a classy event at home on a yacht, at a yacht club or even down on the shore. A beach wedding is a romantic dream idea that can be a picturesque wedding.
