Eye Candy: Set Sail with Nautical Accents

From wedding invitations to reception decor, a nautical wedding theme gives a bride plenty of options – whether the wedding is seaside or not! What we love most about this wedding theme is the element of fun it brings to your special day. After all, it’s hard to stay too serious when your groomsmen are showing off their anchor socks. But don’t let the fun fool you. This classic theme offers elegant touches, from stripes to gorgeous cakes, and of course, the timeless color combination of red and blue.

Here are five of our favorite nautical wedding inspirations:
