Nautical weddings are a perfect theme for a summer wedding. Nautical weddings can take place on a beach, yacht club, or near a lighthouse. These outdoor locations allow your guests to experience the beautiful scenery of one of nature's most prized possession, the ocean.


Dress up your reception with nautical tabletop decor. These nautical weave napkin rings are made from traditional sailor knots and are perfect for just the right touch of decoration on your reception tables.


These Mason jar beeswax candles are an easy way to create an elegant touch to your nautical wedding. These candle jars can be paired with seashells and sand to add to your theme. Each jar has been airbrushed to sea foam blue and hand-poured with only white beeswax and fragrance oils. These candles can also make great gifts for your bridal party or for your wedding guests.


This centerpiece card holder is another great detail for a nautical wedding. These rope knots are about 4 inches across and made with 1/ 2 inch bright white cotton rope. These are ideal for labeling your guests' tables or just simply for decoration. All of the cotton and polyester used to make them comes from the USA to minimize waste.


These nautical coasters are made by using the "Turks Head" knot woven as a miniature mat with a very firm cotton cord.

These coasters will protect your guests' tables from wet mugs, glasses, cold bottles and beer.
