Nautical Bridal Shower Ideas

 Nautical parties are popping up everywhere and what a perfect way to celebrate a bridal shower! Sail boats, seafood, sand - could not get any more romantic!

No need to spend big bucks on renting a boat for the shower - there are many easy, affordable ways to transform any space into a nautical oasis. A perfect theme for a couples shower too!

Here are a few simple ideas we came up with...

  1. A cute phrase to follow the nautical theme - "(bride's name) & (groom's name) are tying the knot "  - use on banners, favor tags, etc.
  2. Choose a nautical themed invitation to let the guests know the theme - they can then choose if they want to dress accordingly. Fun attire would be dressing like sailors - or dresses with navy blue/white stripes and the guys in nice navy and white shirts and jackets, khaki pants.
  3. Decorate with anchors, knots, rope, sand, and anything else seaworthy. Tie rope around jars, silverware and drinking glasses to add a little nautical feel. Add sand to jars and add a candle to the top - great centerpiece idea!
  4. Drape nets or nautical flags on tables.
  5. Serve food that is caught from the sea; crab cakes, shrimp cocktails, tuna sandwiches, smoked salmon, etc.
  6. Instead of plates, use seashells to serve the food on.
  7. If money isn't an issue for the shower and you live by the water, check into renting a boat for the night. What a perfect setting that would be - definitely a shower to remember!
  8. For dessert serve donuts (life preserver rings), cookies shaped like anchors or shells, or cupcakes with nautical toppers.
  9. Hand out knot bracelets, beach towels, flip flops, or bottle openers as favors!
  10. For a fun drink - serve something blue - try this fun Sailor Punch!
