Depending on your nautical ideal, our team can create a vibrant and exciting decorative backdrop for your wedding.

2. Nautical Centerpieces

Tables can be decorated with a nautical wedding centerpiece of large apothecary jars filled with sand, shells, driftwood, starfish and marine plants. Another option for a nautical wedding centerpiece can be a “message in a bottle” that washed up on shore. Love letters can be tucked into bottles and filled with cattails and other marine flora. Another idea for a nautical wedding centerpiece can be a variety of lanterns aglow with candles or filled with starfish and seashells. For a more traditional approach a beautiful blue and white floral arrangement in a large seashell planter makes a dramatic statement. Nautical themes can include flags, mini sailboats, netting, fish and much more.

Tying the knot, or saying your nuptials aboard ship, is the most important part of a nautical wedding. You and your intended can be married on the deck of one of our beautiful vessels, if that is your desire. We can arrange a designated area for the bride and groom, and guests to gather for your nuptials. One tradition of nautical wedding ideas that some couples partake of is to literally tie the nautical rope knot together during their ceremony. The Fisherman’s Knot is known to be the strongest of the nautical knots and is the one that the bride and broom tie together. This is a romantic tradition that serves as a symbol of binding love.
