Floral Ideas For A Nautical Themed Wedding

You don’t have to live by the sea to embrace a fun nautical theme! Make this theme your own with a few simple sea-worthy touches throughout your wedding décor and floral.

You can accentuate your locks with a headband of seashells and flowers, turn sand dollars into place cards, add a rope detail or an ocean pearl motif to your cake, or use driftwood and sea glass to fashion charming centerpieces for the reception tables. Here are a few ideas to help you bring the same nautical inspiration to your floral elements:

Pick a Color Palette 

One of the first steps to planning any theme wedding is to pick a cohesive color palette. One of the things we love about a nautical theme wedding is that there are several color options! Navy with gold or white is the most traditional color combination for a nautical themed wedding, and is incredibly popular right now. For a twist on the traditional combinations, we are seeing a lot of navy paired with red or coral with gold accents.

If you long for more of a seaside feel to your nautical themed wedding, simply adjust the color palette to fit. Consider using lighter shades of blue mixed with sandy brown and neutral tones. Give your floral arrangements a fresh feel by combining a variety of white blossoms. “Frothy” flowers like anemones, peonies, mums, ranunculus, and dahlias all have a light, airy texture that can represent the frothy white of waves crashing against the shore.

Probably one of the most romantic parts of the sea is the sunset! Romantic hues of golds, pinks, and purples is another twist you can take on a nautical themed wedding. Mixing light and dark toned flowers in your bouquet will create dynamic contrast that is similar to what you would find in a sunset.

Bouquet Details

Add some nautical distinction to your bouquet with a beautiful stem wrap. Wrap a white rope around the stems and add a beautiful brooch, or even a sailor’s knot as an interesting accent. Another great option is to tie the bouquet stems together with a navy blue and white striped ribbon for a clean and simple look.

Nautical Wedding Décor

There are so many possibilities for adding nautical touches to the tablescapes and other décor elements.  For example, an anchor, rope, seashells, starfish, or even coral plants can be added into your centerpiece for added dimension. We also ADORE these table numbers made out of driftwood that a clever bride added to her wedding.
