How about:

Nice catch!

From Sand to Sea: from ME to WE

____(your name) & _____(his name) take the plunge!

____(your name) & _____( his name) make a splash!

Marriage is a beach.

The only nautical song I could think of was “Sailing” by Christopher Cross, but that doesn’t really count. Tongue Out (…Okay, I lied, it was the NSYNC version.) But I’ve got these phrases:

 

“(Bride), (Groom), Found At Sea”

“We’re Dropping the Anchor @ ____”

“Our Ship Has Sailed!”

“We’re Getting Docked!”

I am fairly NEW to WBee, and an Encore Bride, so have to admit that I am not 100% clear on what a “Details insert card” is… but guessing that it holds info in regards to Directions, Hotel etc. (am I even close)

In which case, as a Boater the phrase “(to help you) Chart Your Course” comes to mind.

Mr TTR and I have a bit of an interest in boating, and love cruising, the Caribbean etc.  So if I happen to be “off course” here with my understanding of Wedding Terminology, let me know, and perhaps I can come up with some other nautical themed phrases…

Definitely a lot to choose from, be they actual terms or lyrics from popular music.  I can certainly brainstorm some others for you.

  • @KimmySumShuga:  Ok, thanks for the explanation.

    In all honesty these Details shouldn’t go out with your Invites (especially not the Gift Info).  As per Etiquette they should be on your Website… ONLY the RSVP is within the Standard Rules of Etiquette

    If you need a title for the RSVP… Ship’s Log might be a good one.  Or that could also work for the name of your Wedding Website.

    If you follow prescribed Etiquette, you’d only include one other card to summarize the Details and where to find them … and it could then be entitled Chart Your Course and then on it the following bullets…

  • Directions
  • Parking
  • Accommodations
  • Other Details

For more info see our Website at ___ website addy ___

That said if you decide to still go against the grain (remember there could be consequences if you peeve off a Guest by appearing Rude), here then are some more ideas.

Tie the Knot / Clove Hitch (Parking)

Drop Anchor (Accommodations)

Anchor In (Accommodations)

Sorry don’t have any cute sayings for the Gift Registry… as I said there just isn’t a polite way to “ask for” (appears to be begging) for Gifts, period.  Sorry.

@KimmySumShuga: Aha, I remember reading about your Wedding elsewhere on WBee (the we can’t wait for late-comers to the Yacht… cued me in)

In your case then of course what you doing is correct, in that it tells the Guests upfront how they can be most comfortable / accommodated for in your plans

It does sound like a wonderful wedding, I’ll be looking to reading about it further… hope you share some pics with us too once the BIG day gets here.

@KimmySumShuga:  Just wanted to chime in on “Our ship has sailed.” Umm…I hate to be a spoil sport, but being the word-nerd that I am…it’s a bit of a negative saying. It means opportunity has passed you by. Kinda like, “well, this is what we’ve got. Any other opportunity has already sailed away.”

However, I love “we’ve tied the knot”–the double meaning is great. You could also play with something like “we’ve found our safe harbor” or “we’ve found our moorings”…?
