Sail away with these nautical wedding invitations

If you live near the sea, have a sailing family or are just a really big Ralph Lauren fan, having a maritime-themed wedding will definitely have occurred to you by now. Sailing ropes (with bona fide sailors' knots) can be used to decorate chairs in your ceremony space; tablecloths are blue and white striped; your groom, at some point, dons a sailor's hat (as do his groomsmen for some kick-ass photo opportunities!). There is such a host of inspiration on Pinterest, it's a shock that there aren't five maritime weddings for every traditional wedding - and that's before we've even got to the wedding invitations, the perfect chance to give your guests a little hint as to what they can expect when it comes time for your big day.

In terms of themes and motifs, there are so many you can use - from compasses to maps, anchors to seashells, sailors' colors to ships' sails - and you can combine your love of sea life with patriotism by going for a good ol' blue, white and red color combination! Here are some of our favorites.
