Sarah’s Nautical Nuptials

by | Bride, Inspiration Boards


Sarah emailed me recently looking for inspiration for her nautical inspired wedding. Her colour palette is pink, white and navy and she’d like to dress her bridesmaids in tea length dresses with the groomsmen in navy sport coats with khakis.

Aussie’s tend to go with beach styling rather than nautical. So I suppose this is my Australian take on the classic nautical wedding.

    Great inspiration, however the bow on the bride maids dress is not very nautical!

    Oh wow, what a cute theme for someone who lives near water.

    That shell pink makes it so much more elegant and formal. VERY pretty Ms. Polka!

    Great inspiration board! It would be very nice to host a nautical theme wedding. I like the bridesmaid dress featured here. Very pretty!

    Dusty rose is an inspired twist on nautical. And that anemone photo is brilliant!

    Any info on where those pale pink bridesmaids dresses are from? I am looking for something similar!

      No I’m sorry Michaela! Photographer Nikole Ramsey may know! The wedding was 2009 though so it might be impossible to find them!
