Little wedding update

We've decided on our Save the Dates and Invitations. Below is a similar version which I found by googling "nautical wedding invitations" and a few other nautical phrases. And we liked the idea of incorporating boating into our theme. I am all set with using a sailboat or anchor. Don't get me wrong I was planning on using anchors and boat rope and still love the idea but I've decided to be more original. Attending enough weddings in one summer will do that.

I will be using actual boat rope at the church with flowers and a lot of other cute details I'll fill you in on when I have them more set.

The difference with our Save the Date is we're going to use the "real" lines you get from the GPS (at Hyannisport). Which is three "numbers" not two. And Music Guy refuses to use "Chart your course", but that's just a minor detail so he wins.

Thanks to who ever Beth and Michael are for the tip!




Thoughts/plans of our engagement party are in full swing.

Giddy up!

CUTE! Boyfriend and I are having a nautical wedding as well (at some point *laugh*), except we'll have a lot of crimson in with the navy and cream as well :) These are super cute!

What a fantastic idea!!!!

You could maybe use the nautical flags in your initials for a different idea versus the anchor.

We had a nautical theme for our wedding and when we returned from our honeymoon, we sent our change of address cards, which said 'We've dropped anchor".

I like the original nautical numbers. What a great idea! We are using the anchor as our symbol and I definitely feel like it's overused but we are trying to come up with different ways to use it. Keep up the great work!
