Seaside Nautical

I love the idea of nautical weddings, but when it looks like
every other bride is going the traditional route, with sailboat icons sprinkled
with navy and gold accents, how do you stand apart from the crowd?

How about adding some vintage seaside elements into your
stationery and décor. Think saltwater taffy, old-fashioned pails filled with
candles and placed haphazardly in piles of sand, doting the center of each
table. Or borrowing the look of vintage postcards for your stationery and event
signage — just remember to keep the colors weather-beaten and the look a
little unrefined for an event that is sure to be remembered.
