i think you could easily do navy, peach & champagne! (basically the colors you’re talking about in your second scheme – do it! fluffy blush flowers against navy & white stripes would be a great mix. i’d personally nix the starfish, but you could maybe do shells?

I love the nautical look!  I did sort of a vintage nautical twist because I didn’t want it to be overkill.  My colors were yellow, navy, white which worked out great.  I think the key is to pick the places where you use nautical elements and don’t stick too much to a theme but more to coordinating colors.  The weddings I always love the most are ones where everything doesn’t match exactly.  

For example the nautical navy & white is adorable for the stationary and maybe a couple of decorations.  You also want to have a lot of flowers or candles to make it feel more romantic. I used mason jars will sand and candles to decorate our cocktail area which is beachy, rustic & affordable. You could add the starfish to the mason jars with sand or use them as your escort cards 🙂

Have you decided on centerpieces?  I think lanterns, mercury glass, or galvanized metal pots would be super cute at a yacht club venue.

I LOVE the nautical theme! I would totally do it, if I lived anywhere near a body of water. It’s gorgeous and classy and would probably make your FH very happy. I think your inspiration boards are great and a good mix of feminine and masculine.

I love the whole nautical theme. When I lived at home, I had a nautical themed room (even though the closest ocean is 1500 miles away…) You could easily incorate the blush into your color scheme. A lot of sea shells have a blush color to them and I think blush peonys would look absolutly stunning.

I really like it.  I think the peach and navy looks great and the slightly nautical theme makes sense.  I even like the starfish more than the shells.
