What’s more romantic than a wedding by the sea? A coastal wedding theme means you can bring all those seafaring elements you love into your special celebration whether you’re actually by the ocean or completely landlocked. Check out this inspiration board for a few ideas to create the look you want.

So Relaxed
The coastal look immediately evokes feelings of rest and relaxation. All you have to do is choose a few colors and details to tie your look together throughout the ceremony and reception and guests will feel like they’re on vacation. We love the Keep It Simple Invitation to introduce this look and what we love even more is that it comes with a free response postcard to keep your budget in check. See the entire collection to find more designs you’ll love.

Seaside Simplicity
Coral flowers remind guests of life under the sea while an oyster bar allows everyone to partake in a beloved coastal tradition. Knotted rope is the perfect table number holder and candles give a little romantic lighting. Keep the decorations and activities simple while staying true to the heritage and history of coastal life, and you’ll have a wedding everyone will remember for a very long time.

Color Chic
A coastal look is closely tied to the colors you use and how you use them. Here you’ll notice a very simple navy and white color scheme with a few pops of coral. Striped ribbon on the wedding cake coordinates beautifully with the striped tablecloths. The custom wedding napkins with white anchor design add a coastal touch to all the reception tables for a great price! Ladies in navy bridesmaid dresses look gorgeous, as usual, especially when standing next to the bride in white.
