The marine theme is associated with water, the sea, the beach and everything related to these phenomena. Shells, anchors, pirate chests, nets, ropes, steering wheels, figures of the inhabitants of the depths are used as decoration. The menu includes fish dishes, dishes with seaweed and seafood.
The main colors of the event are different shades of blue, cream, white. Red additions (life buoys, flags, flowers) look great.
Sea wedding looks perfect next to the water. For example, it can be held on a yacht, ship, sea or lake shore, in a coastal cafe, on the beach. But if this is not possible, then a regular restaurant will do.
Some newlyweds organize sea weddings near the pools.
There are no strict rules for the images of the bride and groom, but it is better to refrain from too formal or lush outfits. The bride can choose a simple and light dress in white or another (for example, turquoise) color, and the groom can choose a suit of a fairly free style. Suits in bright blue, white, cream, turquoise and sand colors are especially popular among grooms.
