rope ampersand nautical wedding invite

 

Nothing is quite so delightfully preppy as a nautical wedding. From the upbeat color palettes to maritime icons, these nautical wedding invitations are cheery and traditional.  Some nautical invites are a little more modern than others, with updated fonts and a departure from the classic red, white, and blue.  This invite (above) gives a nod to its nautical theme with a rope ampersand and pale blue background.

But if you want to stay traditional, both of these invites are lovely options with their knots, anchors, and stripes. These would both be perfect if your wedding is being held at a yacht club--delightfully preppy!

If you are having a seaside wedding, but want a vintage wedding-friendly color palette. Try using navy and pink (above) or aqua and white (below).

Appreciate a more artistic look?  I adore these illustrated anchors paired with fantastic fonts (above, and below right).

If your waterfront venue has special significance (like maybe where he proposed or you spent your first weekend away together?), then highlight the geography with a pretty photo (above, left) or map (below).
