Nautical Navy and White

For a classic maritime look, consider using navy blue and crisp white as your primary colors. Adorn your tables with navy blue tablecloths on sale and white table runners. Add decorative elements like miniature sailboats or anchor motifs to complete the nautical theme.

Elegant Neutrals

If you prefer a more understated look, opt for elegant neutrals. Soft beige, sand, and driftwood shades can create a sophisticated beach-inspired atmosphere. Add in seashell or starfish accents to enhance the coastal feel.

Seaside Elegance

Combine natural elements like seashells, driftwood, or beach glass with elegant table linens in ivory or blue for a refined seaside look. Linens such as our dusty blue table runner can add a touch of luxury to your nautical decor.

Coastal Stripes

Striped table linens, especially those with blue and white stripes, evoke a beachy atmosphere. Decorate your tables with striped table runners in colors like blue and white or soft pastels. They add a touch of casual elegance to your tables.

Golden Glow

For a touch of glamour, infuse a golden theme into your cruise wedding decorations. Use gold-toned table linens like gold chair covers and accents such as gold charger plates. This adds a regal touch to your seaside celebration.

With these inspirations, your cruise wedding decorations will set the perfect backdrop for your big day. These destination wedding cruise ideas capture the essence of the sea, while reflecting your personal style as a couple.

Customizing your table settings for a cruise wedding reception can be a delightful experience. Start by considering the theme or style you want for your wedding and how it complements the cruise ship's ambiance. Here are some steps to help you create a personalized table setting:

1. Decide on the theme that resonates with you and your partner. It could be nautical, tropical, vintage, or anything that reflects your style. Your theme will guide your choices in table decor.

2. Choose a color palette that matches your theme and adds to the cruise wedding's atmosphere. For a nautical theme, classic blue and white work well, while tropical themes can incorporate vibrant colors.

3. Coordinate your table linens for less, including tablecloths and napkins, with your chosen colors. Consider using overlays, table runners, or chiffon chair sashes for added texture and style. 

4. Select elegant tableware that suits your theme, from plates and cutlery to glassware. Whether it's beach-themed plates or classic table settings, your choice of tableware can enhance the overall look. If you're going for an eco-friendly theme, you might want to opt for disposable plates.

5. Create eye-catching centerpieces that align with your theme. For a nautical wedding, you can use seashells, driftwood, or mini sailboats. Tropical themes can include exotic flowers, while vintage themes might feature antique candle holders or vintage books.

6. Add a personal touch to each place setting. Consider custom place cards with wedding guests' names and a short message. Small favors that fit your theme can also wow family, friends, and sailing guests.

7. If your cruise wedding includes an evening reception, the right lighting can set the mood. Candles or fairy lights can add a romantic touch to your tables.

8. Use creative table numbers or names that align with your theme. For instance, if you have a nautical theme, you could name tables after famous lighthouses.

9. Add special touches that reflect your journey as a couple or your love story. This might include photos, quotes, or symbols that are meaningful to you.
