Consider a Dockside Destination Wedding
Introducing the color palette in the invitation suite sets the tone for the wedding and sparks excitement as soon as guests open the envelope. The contemporary pattern and coral are carried over in the wedding program and escort card display. Each guests’ name and table number is hung with a gold compass, a clever way to direct guests to their seats.
Planning tip: Incorporating your wedding favors in to your escort card display is a budget-friendly fix that covers decor and a little ‘thank you’ for guests.
Succulents are trending up and this bouquet is a unique look for an elegant seaside wedding. We love the pop of coral and peek of yellow too!
A groom in gray is perfect for a summer wedding by the sea, and we love the brides’ stacked gold bracelets. This is a great way to incorporate “something old”, “something new”, and “something borrowed.”
DIY tip: A hand painted oar is an easy DIY project. Paint one with the words “thank you” and incorporate the prop a few bridal portrait. This will make great stationery after the wedding!
Decor We love how the driftwood adds a warm brown tone and organic feel to the table, while keeping with the nautical theme. Also appropriate for a nautical destination wedding, a vintage map table runner is a great backdrop for gold accents, from silverware to spray painted sea shells and candle holders.
DIY tip: Collect sea shells and spray paint them gold for expensive-looking, yet affordable, decor. You can do this with candle holders from the dollar store too!
