well we had sort of an ocean theme – and had starfish on our invites. Here’s some pics – hopefully they will give you some ideas!

Invites:

Fan Program:

Escort cards:

Centerpieces: (there were also smaller candles that were a 3×3 square glass filled with seaglass – very pretty at night

All of the above was DIY.

Think wooden, I am also a september nautical bride, we are making small lobster bouys for the table cards and also can double as christmas tree orniments for our favors. I am doing navy and green with hydregea blue. Also try thinking clean lines, doing a lot with navy and white stripred ribbion and white rope. We also took a trip to the beach and will be making my table numbers out of drift wood.

use coiled rope.  It’s cheap and very nautical and you can do a lot of DIY stuff with

it. AND You could go with a very cute “we tied the knot” theme

ALSO Sea glass fits into your theme very well.  Just scatter it for confetti like decor

ALso doing a nautical theme!  Nautical as well as vintage.  My colors are key lime and peacock blue with aqua.  I like navy but wanted something a little bolder so I went with the peacock blue.  Key lime because our wedding is in the keys!  Lots of driftwood, rope and seaglass with white flowers and key limes for decor. 

Will try to post inspiration pics later, dont have them here at work 🙂

Nautical themes make me so happy! I feel like it is one of the few themes you can really run with without making the wedding look too “kitchy.”
