Getting hitched aboard a ship in a warm part of the world? Here are some ideas for a cruise ship theme wedding.

Stationery – Use seashells, palm trees, water, boat or sun motifs for your invitations. Create scroll invitations and place theme inside a bottle for ‘message in a bottle’ invitations.

Flowers/Centerpieces/Décor – Using sand and shells when decorating will help set the theme. Candles in sand filled mason jars, for instance, will look great on the tables.

Colors – Use bright, tropical colors, or stick with crisp linen shades. Or go with the nautical colors blue and white.

Food – Serve seafood and fish. Chocolate seashells added to your wedding cake are a nice touch. A wedding cake in the shape of a ship would also be a whimsical touch to add to the cruise ship theme.

Favors – Give guests small, galvanized beach pails filled with Hershey’s kisses, saltwater taffy, or votive candles. Luggage tags with a cruise ship theme are also a nice touch. There are also personalized mint favor tins with cruise ship themes available online.
