Want to throw a Wicked Rhode Island wedding? Here are a handful of creative nautical and Rhody-themed details that are so worth pinning.

These buoy escort cards are too adorable for words, and we’re sure your guests will think the same as they bob along to their designated seats.
Ask your guests to put their newlywed advice messages in a chic blue bottle for you to pop open in five, ten or twenty years (just maybe don’t actually throw it out to sea in the meantime!).
Rhode Island may not be an island but we sure are surrounded by a bunch (Aquidneck, Goat and Prudence.) Consider either naming your reception tables after those or in honor of some of your favorite local streets, restaurants or beaches.
Afraid of going over budget? Forgo floral centerpieces in favor of navy and white sailboats or ornate vases filled with sand, seashells and tea lights.
Our summers are unpredictable, but they usually err on the side of hot and humid. If you’re getting hitched outside between May and September, do your guests a favor and supply them with cute DIY fans.
Begone, standard guest books! Shake it up a little and have your loved ones sign something a bit more meaningful (like a paddle for the seafaring couple) and that can double as wall decor for your new home.
Seashell escorts are on-theme, cost-effective and require minimal effort — all you need is access to a couple local beaches and a quality sharpie or two (good hand writing doesn’t hurt, either).
Anchors are a staple nautical wedding symbol while bottle openers are a classic wedding favor — combine the two for the ultimate thank you gift.
Why not let your cake topper predict the future? It doesn’t get any dreamier than growing old together and sitting side by side in Adirondack chairs overlooking the rolling ocean tides.
