Nail Your Nautical Wedding Invitations

As an invitation designer living near the ocean, Art Paper Scissors gets plenty of requests for nautical-themed wedding invitations and reception materials. We love incorporating this preppy and classic theme to fit each unique couple that we work with!

Below are some of our most recent seaworthy, custom-designed nautical invitations:

Navy and Nautical with Showstopping Enclosure

These unique invitations are perfect for Angelica and Joseph’s wedding at the beautiful Bonnet Island Estate, right on the water in Stafford, NJ. The invitation’s classic, nautical navy gets a fun twist with a pop of summer coral. Anchors, ship wheels and rope graphics tie in this couple’s theme perfectly. The showstopping enclosure sets the tone for a seriously seaworthy celebration, all tied together with a wax anchor seal. A combination of classic nautical and elegance!

 “Tying the Knot” Save the Dates

Regina and Mike are “tying the knot” in Newport – a classic coastal town perfect for this couple’s nautical celebration. We incorporated their stunning engagement photos with nautical rope art and ship wheels for their save the date cards. We think their guests are very excited to set sail for this wedding!

Sailboat Table Numbers

Ahoy! These cute sailboat table numbers are perfect for a nautical wedding overlooking the waves in Sea Bright.

Anchors Away for Love Invitations

Anchors away for Amy and Sean’s nautical-inspired nuptials at Clarks Landing Yacht Club in Point Pleasant, NJ! The ocean inspired this woodgrain invitation, with beachy blue hues, netting and a monogrammed anchor tying it all together.

Coastal & Charming Invitations

Regina and Michael's nautical wedding invitations are inspired by the coastal charm of Newport, Rhode Island. This invitation suite features stunning navy with a pop of coral and brown and a monogrammed ship's wheel for personal touches, wrapped together in netting. The trifold details booklet has a perforated tear-off RSVP card, making the response of "YES!" a sea breeze for guests. How cute is their chosen Shakespeare quote on love - printed on the enclosure? "When I first saw you I fell in love and you smiled because you knew."

Beachy Sea Green Invitation

When we think about some our favorite venues in New Jersey, Clarks Landing Yacht Club is definitely one of them. We’ve had several of our couples wed at Clarks and APS has attended several wedding there as well and WOW, just wow. The ballroom sits on the 2ndfloor and is surrounded by floor to ceiling bay windows, providing breath taking views of the Manasquan River and dockside below. Located right on the Jersey Shore, the venue is perfect for beach and nautically themed weddings and Jennifer and Eric’s wedding is no exception.

The couple chose to go the beachy route with a soft palette of sea green, gold and coral. They chose to use the gorgeous sea green color for their flat pocket enclosure. The invitation was mounted on the front and bordered with a double lined decorative gold border and kissed with a collection of seashells in the center.

The details of the invitation were inscribed in a mix of a script and an uppercase simple font with all the pertinent details in the gorgeous sea green color.

In the back was the pocket that contained the “Details”, inclusive of a perforated “RSVP” postcard…which happens to be one of our favorite parts. We love whimsical type treatment of the “RSVP” but love the respond options even more: “Sea you at the shore” and “All tide up”. They are so PUN…get it?? <nudge, nudge>

Jen and Eric, we hope you have an amazing wedding day! The next few months will fly by so enjoy every minute of it.
