If you and your finance love fishing,
sailing and spending time by the water, then why not have a nautical-themed
wedding? Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life, and it should
represent the personalities of you and your finance. Whether you want to have
your wedding outside by the water or bring the feel of coastal life indoors,
consider these great ideas for nautical-themed weddings.
There are many fun and neat ways you
can dress up your wedding venue and reception site in your nautical theme.
Before you prepare your decorations, it's best to choose a color pallet.
Popular colors for nautical-themed wedding are blue, white, yellow and red. Be
sure to consider these colors when incorporating your favorite nautical
elements into your décor, such as ships, fish, boats, anchors, knots and
lifesaver buoys. One way you can incorporate nautical elements into your décor
is by hanging life preservers over the doors at your reception venue. The life
preservers can display your names and wedding date, or say a common maritime
phrase such as "Welcome Abroad". Also be sure to include seashells, ropes and
anchors in your flower arrangements.
Another great way to show off your
passion for the sea is through your table settings. Integrate your favorite
nautical elements into your chair decorations and centerpieces. You can
decorate the table where guests pick up their table numbers with lighthouses
and seashells. Then get a model sailboat for each of your tables to display
your guests’ names and table numbers.Guests
can take the sailboat home as a keepsake from your wedding.
In addition to the décor, your love
for everything nautical should be represented in your wedding jewelry. The
groom and groomsmen can wear silver or gold nautical pins on their suit jackets
that feature an anchor, hook or sand dollar. At Gone Coastal Jewelry, we can
create stunning suit pins from our signature nautical pendants. For the ladies,
they can wear nautical bracelets, necklaces and/or earrings that best
complement the dresses. All of our fishing jewelry is made from the finest
materials and most stunning natural stones. You can give your bridal party the
nautical jewelry as a wedding gift, so they can wear it at your wedding.
The wedding cake is a major component
of your wedding reception. Choose a white wedding cake and tie it into your
coastal theme. You can line each tier of the cake with a rope made of fondant
and decorate them with beautiful seashells, starfish and flowers. Use an
anchor, sailboat or beach chairs as your cake topper.

We may be stuck in the throes of winter, but spring break is soon
approaching, and with it, our plans for vacation. Preparing for a seaside
vacation, whether to a sunny Florida beach, Caribbean island, or Mexican
resort, warrants the packing of some key accessories to ensure you're prepared
for time on the beach, dinners at the resort, fishing excursions, and
everything in between. What accessories should you consider for your upcoming
If you plan to spend time by the shore, at minimum you'll want a
pair of comfortable, supportive sandals that will make walks on the beach a
breeze. Look for sandals that offer reasonable cushioning, don't have high
platforms, and which afford a snug fit; the last thing you need on your
vacation is a twisted ankle! To get the most value out of your footwear (and to
save room in your suitcase), look for sandals that could be worn both at the
beach and in more formal settings, such as a hotel or restaurant. This may be
especially useful for those visiting resorts, where trips between the beach,
pool, restaurant and hotel are frequent.
Nautical fishing jewelry, such as anchor
pendants, nautical earrings and sea life bracelets, can easily
elevate the look of any dinner dress, bathing suit, or casual summer attire,
and provide women added element of style. Available in a wide array of designs,
nautical fishing jewelry can also be customized to reflect your specific vacation
destination and experiences. Planning on spending time deep sea fishing in the
Gulf? Consider something like our specialty Texas Slam pendant, featuring a
unique fishing-inspired design. Or, if you've made plans to swim with the
dolphins, consider our gorgeous sterling-silver dolphin hoop earrings. Nautical
jewelry can also be worn at any time throughout the year, whether as an
accessory to a work outfit or as a complement to a formal dress, and serves as
a continual reminder of your treasured vacation memories.
Caftan cover-ups are a vacation must-have, as these wraps offer a
tremendous amount of wardrobe flexibility. Rather than changing in and out of a
swimsuit each time you're ready to transition from lounging poolside to sitting
up at a snack bar, taking a walk down the pier, or hopping in a kayak, simply
throw on your loose-fitting caftan over your suit and you'll be good to go!
The Sun Hat
The sun hat is both a practical and fashionable vacation accessory.
These adorable, wide-brim hats can contribute a touch of style to any swimsuit
or summer outfit, while conveniently shading your face from the sun for extra
UV protection. Sun hats are also great to throw on after a swim when hair is
looking less-than-ideal, and can provide enough shade to eliminate the need for

Giving gifts to loved ones is a
habit that is ingrained in us, at this point. Whether celebrating a birthday,
holiday or graduation, we give gifts to show thoughtfulness and mark the
occasion. But sometimes it can be hard to think of gifts to give. If your
recipient works in some kind of maritime industry or simply loves sailing or the
beach, why not surprise them with some unique nautical gifts?
To jumpstart the brainstorming process, we at Gone Coastal Jewelry
have created a list of maritime-inspired gift ideas that should appeal to a
wide range of people:
For those who love beautiful (yet
unconventional) jewelry, a nautical theme is a perfect way to be unique and
still get something classy and timeless. Not only can you choose something in a
sea theme, you can get colorful stones like larimar, jasper, and smoky quartz,
not to mention shell like abalone, in lovely silver settings. Nautical jewelry
is also a great way to get ready for the summer months that lie ahead. You can
conveniently browse our selection
of ocean and fishing-inspired jewelry online.
2. Home Décor
Decorative items for the home make
a great gift for anyone and can also be a stunning addition to the office. A
few decorative gift ideas include nautical wall hooks, wind chimes, wall art,
pillows, blankets, and doormats. These are all elegant, yet simple, showpieces
that set the tone of a space.
If your recipient is interested in
reading and learning about the maritime world, why not buy a book for them so
that they can expand their knowledge? Choose fictional tales of maritime life
like Moby Dick or non-fiction guides
to sea creatures or sailors' knots. There are options for every taste, interest
and age level! If the person appreciates the sights at the beach, maybe a large
coffee table book with quality photography would be a good idea.
If you're looking for a gift
that's more creative and fun or family-oriented, a nautical game might be
perfect. A few game ideas include a classic board game like Battleship, a picture puzzle of a sea animal
or a computer simulated game involving the ocean. Many of these games are
entertaining and educational at the same time.
Anyone with a love or passion for
something enjoys showing it off, and that can easily be done with clothing.
Like jewelry, clothes are a great way to display a passion for sea life. Shirts
and t-shirts with maritime images or slogans are perfect gifts for the enthusiastic
