Get the Look – Nautical

GtlnauticalWe all know that nautical is going to be the big theme for 2006. The question is how do you incorporate the theme into your wedding without looking like you are ready to walk the plank?

Use barely there pieces in shimmering silver and the odd dash of colour to make sure this theme swims rather than sinks. Don’t go overboard with ideas – dress flowergirls and pageboys in sailor outfits and bridesmaids will look fab in flattering navy with a white or scarlet sash. Tables can be decorated with centrepieces of driftwood, shells and tealights, using anchor charms to secure place settings. And if you really want to push the boat out – host your reception at a lighthouse!
