The Salem, Massachusetts setting for this wedding means its infused with a ton of New England wharf-style charm. Think gray suits, rustic white flowers, and a ton of boats waiting on the shore. —POPSUGAR

Carmel, California's earthiness was the ideal backdrop to this couple's romantic nuptials. We're in love with how the bride's dress matches the color of the sand, but the real show-stopper is her jewel-toned bouquet. —Brides

Blue invitations seem so on-the-nose for a nautical-style wedding, but these are the exception! Their unique shapes (one looks like a macaron!), geometric font, and varied shades still feel fresh and unexpected. —Brooklyn Bride

This beachside inspiration shoot is the definition of dreamy. How so? It has a calm, serene palette inspired by the water, escort cards written on mussels, an ombré cake, and seaglass-inspired cups. And that's just the beginning! —Ruffled

We love a nautical theme, but sometimes, it feels desperate for an update. That's why we're obsessed with this real wedding, with its candy colors, sailor motifs, and casual dress code. —100 Layer Cake

The wedding dress in this shoot looks like the ocean. Paired with rustic, woody accents and vintage-y details, it creates a touchstone for a totally unique nautical wedding. —Green Wedding Shoes
