It’s hard to come up with something more romantic than the sea. Only his appearance is already able to set the mood in the right direction, and therefore holding a wedding in a nautical style is a choice of emotional people, a little sentimental and who value peace. How to create such a holiday? What moments must be considered? And how to diversify the scenario of celebration?
Wedding scenario in a nautical style: ideas for every taste
Every person has an individual picture of the word “sea” in the subconscious: someone remembers desperate and funny pirates, someone has purple sunsets and screams of gulls, someone has striped vests and a boat, and for someone it is associated with boat and noisy holiday on it. Therefore, there may be several scenarios for a wedding in a nautical style, depending on the desires of the young. For most ideas, it is necessary to wait for the warm season, since they are fully revealed only at sea. But if this possibility does not appear, some of them can be adapted to urban conditions.
An incredibly romantic fairy tale by A. Green will look incredibly romantic: a good half of the girls at a young age must have dreamed about the opportunity to see their scarlet sails, and therefore such a gesture from the groom will turn out to be beautiful and full of tenderness. For this, of course, it is required to conduct the marriage on the shore, arranging exit registration. The bride on the beach waiting and peering into the distance, the groom sailing towards her on the ship, who can easily replace the boat with a predetermined sail, brought against the sunset of the oath of love and loyalty: airborne and fabulous. You can continue the holiday here, on the beach, and in the ordered restaurant.
Dr. the fabulous version has quite a few parallels with the Little Mermaid, which, of course, will be played by the bride. Her outfit, and even a “casual” meeting with the bridegroom on the beach, which gives rise to a bright feeling that erupts stronger every minute, will also contribute to this. The groom takes the bride he loves to the boat, where the guests have already gathered, and the music plays, and there, marking the happy ending, the young people exchange rings.
Almost polar above options - sea pirate wedding. Here, of course, the boat can not do - it is worth renting a ship. The groom with the guests, arriving on his ship, kidnaps the bride, surrounded by girlfriends, and takes her to the board, where, after some persuasion, she receives her consent to the marriage. Registration takes place here on the ship. If there is no possibility to rent the last one, guests can arrive with boats along with the bridegroom, and after the bride is “kidnapped”, the “search” of the one who signs out the young will begin on the shore. Atmospheric drinking of rum and a noisy holiday are welcome. Supporting the idea, the groom's friends can show attention and interest to the bridesmaids.
The next version, suitable for those who want originality with a minimum touch of fairy tales, is almost a fishing romance. The bride and groom can be in vests, registration is carried out - in a boat, and a banquet - in the seaside house or near it. At the same time there are contests, for example, connected with throwing nets into the sea and searching for shells. Dance of the young can easily change from a waltz to an incendiary rock and roll under "Hey, Sailor!"
A less stylized and more familiar scenario is a celebration on the boat. However, in order to preserve the maritime theme, one should take care of the appropriate decoration of the banquet hall and other zones, as well as young attire, dishes and even invitations.
Organize an unforgettable celebration
- To start thinking through all the nuances of a nautical style wedding should not even be with young dresses, but with the smallest at first glance trifles. For example, with invitations. They will be the first to tell the guests about what idea for the upcoming event they decided to embody the bride and groom.
- The invitations that are folded into a thin scroll and placed in sand bottles look original. But here it is advisable to take care in advance of how they will be taken out: the container should not be chosen with too narrow a throat, and, perhaps, attach the edge of the scroll to the cork. To extract it immediately came out and an invitation.
- More traditional cardboard rectangles, handed to potential guests, can be decorated with small shells, pearls, dry algae. You can paint them with a "strip" pattern, attach an anchor, a piece of rope and a life preserver. All of these items are easy to find in needlework stores.
- As for the wedding menu, it is absolutely not necessary to offer guests only oysters and mussels: it is likely that someone is not a fan of seafood and will be deprived. Let these dishes take 30-40% of the entire menu, leaving others 60-70% more familiar kitchen. But they will all be served in plates shaped like shells (this is especially impressive for fruit and hot dishes) or decorated with starfish. But in the design of the cake, you can show originality by making stylized figures of the bride and groom, adding shells, seaweed and other elements created by means of mastic to the decoration.
- In young attire, it is also important to endure a maritime theme, but how vividly it will be expressed is irrelevant and depends only on the intended wedding scenario. With a more traditional scheme, it is enough to adhere to a certain color range: it is an abundance of white and blue in all its manifestations. The groom may have a blue or azure shirt, as well as a flower in his buttonhole. The bride has accessories, a ribbon on the waist and in her hair, and, of course, a bouquet. By the way, it can be made up not only from living white and blue flowers, but also to diversify them with narrow and long twisted shells.
- If the spouses have no fear of experiments, the bride can wear a short white-blue or striped dress with an improvised veil from a fishing net, and the groom can wear trousers with suspenders and a vest. An excellent completion of his image will be a sea cap. A bride can turn into a mermaid in an A-silhouette dress and with flowing hair in which greens, shells, pearls and starfishes are woven.
Registration of a wedding in sea style
If the celebration is held on the seashore, there is practically no need to take care of the design: the main source of atmosphere and styling is already there. It remains only to think about the fine details, including the outfits of guests and young people, invitations, menus and event script. But what about when there are several hundred kilometers to the sea, and there is ice cold January on the street? In this situation, any restaurant is quite suitable, the design of which will have to deal with the bride and groom. A youth can enjoy the option of celebrating a wedding in the pool.
The color will set the tone for everything: the design of the hall is aged in blue and white, and the latter color, of course, can have a lot of nuances - from indigo to azure. These same tones should be used even for small decor: for example, glasses. They can be painted with stripes and attached to the legs of small lifebuoys, or you can simply paste over with shells. If there are a lot of guests, and such decoration will be tedious, you can decorate the glasses of the bride and groom as much as possible and give only a hint of a maritime theme on the guests' glasses. The same actions deserve cutlery and even napkins, which should be folded in the form of ships.
On the tables, maintaining the atmosphere, you should arrange small pot-bellied aquariums, as well as ships. The latter can even serve as a stand for small fruits (grapes, apricots) or champagne bottles. A great addition to the interior will be candles in wide glasses, where shells and sand are poured. And on the walls you can put balloons formed in the shape of dolphins and fish, hanging algae, nets and anchors.
Often before young people there is a question of registration of a wedding procession. Cars can be decorated with the same elements that were used for decorating the hall: a life preserver, twine, a fishing net with fish "tangled" in it, shells, pearls, algae, and, of course, artificial flowers in white and blue. If the nautical theme gives retro notes, on the hood of the car, you can even stretch the vest and attach the captain's cap.
Let a maritime style wedding be held will cover you with a wave of love that will never back down, and oaths brought under the cries of seagulls colored by the setting sun will be stronger than any others. In order to make such a celebration a reality, it is not even necessary to hold a wedding on the seashore, sometimes to create the right atmosphere, just a few capacious details are enough.
