Have A Nautical Wedding
St. Valentine’s Day is the most popular day for couples to become engaged. It is heart warming to consider all the people who committed to take their relationship to the next level yesterday. For brides who may pause to bask in the engagement glow or for brides who are already pouring over bridal magazines, arguably one of the first important steps to getting started is considering what type of wedding it will be.
At Sea Bags, admittedly we have a special fondness for all things nautical. It is in that spirit that I offer three aspects to consider when planning a wedding with a nautical flair.
Add water. This suggestion is not to infer that planning a wedding is like mixing a pitcher of kool-aid. It is more involved than adding water and stirring rigoriously. But a nautical wedding should include water in the form of pond, ocean, lake or river. It doesn’t have take place on that body of water but it should have a view (even if it is a peek between trees or through window pane) and ideally a fresh aroma (even if from a scented candle) for ambiance of being by the water. Beach and sand are optional.
Anchor yourself. The symbolism of an anchor is perfect for a wedding. The image represents a particularly stable or grounding relationship. It is easy to incorporate this emblem of hope at your wedding through favors and centerpieces. Our bucket bag adorned with a navy anchor looks great hosting a flower vase as a centerpiece or being carried by a darling flower girl tossing petals from it or use it to welcome out-of-town guests by loading it with essentials.
Customize. Don’t compromise your personal style or the expression of your love. Consider customizing totes made from recycled sails for the bridal party. More than the subjective promise of a bridesmaid dress than can be worn again, these totes will be treasured and used for years to come. Let your creative flair show with your favorite colors or wedding date or even longitude/latitude degrees of your ceremony.
Congratulations to newly engaged couples. Maine is a great place to be married. Even if you cannot make it to the Pine Tree State, let Sea Bags add just the right nautical touch. It would be an honor for our products to be a part of your special day. Call us. We love weddings.
