It’s safe to say there are thousands of choices when it comes to finding the perfect wedding dress. The same can be said for the groom who has to choose between a tuxedo or suit. However, having a nautical themed wedding, especially aboard the Skyline Princess, affords both the bride and groom the opportunity to try out some more low-fuss options. Bohemian style dresses are great because they are light and breezy. However, if you are still in search of ball gown, an A-line silhouette will provide more of a casual feel. For the groom looking to keep things low-key, a short-sleeve button-down paired with natural dress pants is the perfect nautical option!
Let your imagination run wild and dress your tables with nautical themed glass, driftwood, and seashells. Take your centerpieces to new heights with beach grass or sand-filled messages in bottles! You can really get creative when it comes to escort cards. Use a fishing net over a few posts to create a display and then hang anchor ornaments with your guest’s names and table numbers on them! Take your under-the-sea dreams and bring them to life!
When we think nautical, we think stripes! A pretty blue and white striped pattern goes hand-in-hand with boat-inspired style. It is so easy to incorporate stripes into your big day! One of the easiest ways is with your table linens!
Having your wedding in New York Harbor means you and your guests will see the most iconic and memorable bridges in the world. Consider building a cake stand that resembles a bridge to place your beautiful wedding cake on top of. This is sure to wow your guests and be unforgettable!
You’ll definitely want a guest book to look back on for years to come. These days, there are so many unique options when it comes to guest book ideas. To stick with the nautical theme, use a large boat oar for your guests to sign! This can later be hung up in your home as a sentimental decorative piece!
