I am having a nautical wedding and LOVE the theme.
I need some suggestions for a natuical-like phrase to place on both the details card of the invite AND/OR our programs…
“Eat, Drink, & Be Married” is cute but I think we’ll use it for our menus.
I was thinking something along the lines of well known song lyrics like”
“Sail away, Sail away, Sail away.”
“Come away with me”
“Somewhere Beyond the Sea”
IDK! I need some more suggestions!
Whats cute and clever and nautical?

Maybe “Sand, Sea, M&K Marry”?
or “A-sailing we will go?”
It will be in script font and nice and pretty so I’d love it to be cute and funny.

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. (…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!”

ooo I LOVE “From Sand to Sea & Me to We”
That is adorrrrrable!
That could work for our programs!
I’m wondering what to put on our “details” insert card…

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.

@This Time Round: awe cute! Well I actually have 4 insert cards~ 1 for Accomodations, 1 for Directions, 1 for RSVP & 1 for “Details” aka like where to park, where we are registered & where to send gifts!
I’d love to put “Chart the Course” on the Directions card! Great idea!!!
Any other fun nautical phrases now that I’ve explained?!

- @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…
- 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.

@This Time Round: Oh we’re not asking for gifts~ They are just not allowed on the yacht because of the September 11th security act so we are trying to make it EXTRA clear so that no one has to run to their car and put it back and possibly board the yacht late… we are simply saying due to security issues packaged gifts should be sent to the house but cards are welcome aboard… in more or less terms.
Also, we’re registered on amazon.com so shipping is going to be involved somewhere, might as well send it to the house!
Thank you for the etiquette lesson but I feel like being extra thorough because we will have a lot of out of town guests and the harbor is a little hard to navigate so the directions card right to the yacht feels necessary… plus we are not waiting for anyone at the dock so people MUST NOT get lost. lol
AND our RSVP is digital because we have guests coming from all over the world and locally so it was much easier to wait for international return so that’s its own card w/ the password.
AND alerting everyone of the accommodations with a card seems nice…
i don’t know, I guess we’re not super traditional…
Thanks for all the phrases!

@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”…?
