Inspiration for your road to the altar

Nautical Invitations

June 9, 2008

I wanted our rehearsal dinner invitations to be fun and casual since we’re planning a relaxed dinner in the harbor of the resort we’ll be staying in. And since I sacrificed my love for the nautical theme in favor of black, white and green, I gave myself permission to use it for this! I was looking for nautical inspiration without using boats and anchors, and came across this bouquet and boutonniere on brides.
I loved the stripes with the green mixed in, so this is what I came up with (I just changed the pertinent info instead of blurring things out):
It’s a little hard to tell, but the stripes are a really dark blue. I am hoping it achieves the “nautical with out the cheesy” look I was going for!

    I think it’s perfect – nautical without being cheesy is exactly how I would have described it.

    you are kidding me! I feel like we are wedding twins. My colors are black, white and green also and I designed my invites almost exactly like that. Except besides the stripes, I have dots.

    I think they are beautiful! And you wanted kind of a beach wedding anyway, but didn’t.

    So this is the best way to have it your way – twice!

    I love it! And they are certainly anything but cheesey!
