Nautical is a classic theme for weddings around the world. The key to executing this timeless look is to incorporate subtle motifs inspired by the locale. Think natural rope accents, maps, and hints of gold intertwined in everything from wedding party gifts and flower arrangements to table settings, desserts, and more. Keep the backdrops simple with crisp navy-and-white stripes or solids; these blue undertones will create a sense of tranquility for your guests.
