Having a sails and seas inspired fete doesn't mean you have to belong to your neighborhood yacht club (oh, how posh!), or even be anywhere near the bay. What it does require is a color palette of blues, whites and neutrals, some preppy stripes here and there and a few pops of nautical-themed decor: think anchors, knots and shells. Serve up a feast of clams, crabs and lobster rolls and you've got everything you need for your own nautical nuptials. Check out our favorite images from recent weddings in the slideshow and set sail on your own planning.
