Chic Boho Nautical Wedding Inspiration

Thursday, January 18, 2018

Shibori, woven textures, and classic lines. Inspired by preppy meets bohemian, we're having a moment over the ultimate mashup that is nautical boho chic with our latest coastal inspiration board! In a navy blue, white, and teal color palette, we're envisioning yacht club sophistication with relaxed, carefree style.

One of our favorite inspirations for this board is the trendy and oh so gorgeous shibori, a tie-dye-like Japanese dyeing technique that involves folding and binding fabric then dipping it in indigo blue ink. We're seeing it everywhere in the wedding world, and we think it's perfect for a boho nautical celebration!

How to Blend Boho Vibes with Nautical Style

- Take bold stripes... and mix with bohemian patterns like imperfect shapes and lines.
- Use ocean colors... and pair with greens to give a land-faring angle.
- Wear preppy attire... and relax the style with unbuttoned collar, loose braids, low "messy" updo, or fitted bodice with flowy fabric and bateau neckline.
- Swap out perfectly round bouquets... and hold a wild and loose bouquet of blooms, especially in white. Consider ranunculus, veronica, greenery, and other textured flowers.
- Envision classic cake tiers... and soften the lines with small greenery and vines. Consider a natural wooden cake stand to display.
- Incorporate earthy textures... and pair with crisp neutral colors like white.
