Nifty Nautical Wedding Favors

Ahoy mateys.

That's exactly how someone should greet your guests if you're planning a nautical-themed wedding. Have someone at the venue dress like a captain and welcome people aboard the S.S. Wedding Ship Of Love.

I'm being completely serious. That sounds amazing.

And it would be a little needed pop at a nautical wedding. Because nautical weddings are really popular and you don't want to be another bride who hangs a couple life preservers on the back of the chairs at the sweetheart tables.

You can have such fun with whimsy nautical wedding favors. Anything with an anchor or boat pretty much passes. Plus, you can focus on rope because you're tying the knot. And an anchor because your new spouse is your anchor. Oh, you see now why this is a popular theme.

I put together my favorite nifty nautical wedding favors. Check them out below.

Nautical-Themed Glass Coasters Set
I love coasters. If you've ever been to our home, you know this. We have dozens scattered throughout, just in case you, you know, take a drink into the bathroom and need a place to put it down. Shockingly, I've never gotten a coaster as a wedding favor and I think that is a big missed opportunity, especially when there are cute ones like the nautical-themed glass coasters set. It comes as a pair, but you can split it up (so basically, it's like two nautical favors in one).

Nautical Anchor Bottle Stopper
If you and your fiance like wine, you want a favor that reflects that. But you can definitely find a wine nautical wedding favor, like this nautical anchor bottle stopper. Each stopper is just over five inches, which makes it a good size favor. This isn't something little and cheesy. And if you like wine, chances are your friends do too, and they'll actually use this favor post-wedding.

Silver Anchor-Topper Kissing Bells
I didn't purchase kissing bells for our wedding because I didn't think I'd be around Pete long enough to actually kiss him. At one point, my mom's friend did start tapping on her glass with a knife, but I turned to her and said, "That's my brother" revealing my younger brother (not my husband) at the head table with me. If you think you'll spend more time together than Pete and I did, check out these silver anchor-topped kissing bells. They're kissing bells (you and your groom will kiss each time they are rang), they're favors, and they're escort card holders. Triple threat.

Blue Sailboat Tea Light Holders

If you know us, you know we always have candles burning. They're pretty and set such a romantic mood. Now, imagine an entire ballroom filled with candles. So pretty. You can do that with the blue sailboat tea light holders. Have them act as table decorations during the reception, and you'll save on centerpieces. Then, have your guests take them home as favors, and you'll save yourself clean up. Plus, they're really pretty. Everyone wins.

Personalized Frosted Glass Votive Wedding Candle Favors
If you like candles but the sailboat idea isn't for you, check out these Personalized Frosted Glass Votive Wedding Candle Favors. There are actually a bunch of nautical ideas to choose from for the labels. You can mix and match too so if you want some with rope and others with anchors, you can do that. That's easy in case you've decided on a nautical theme, but can't exactly decide on which style of nautical wedding favors you want to go with. You just have to order 24 of each, which should be easy for most weddings.

Personalized Wedding Stir Sticks
I'm not sure you can call personalized wedding stir sticks a favor, but I absolutely love them. They're something I only discovered at the very last minute before our wedding and it was just too late for me to order one more thing. So now I'm a big supporter of letting everyone know that these are adorable, available, and a great wedding accessory. These come in three shapes (rectangle, oval, and round), are double-sided, and have over 70 different icons to choose from -- including anchors. Yup, you can get away with calling these useful nautical wedding favors.

Anchor Bookmarks
I don't read as often as I would like. I used to read books all the time, but then I started working 14 hours a day and I pretty much don't have free time for anything but dinner and sleep. If you and your guests have time to read, you should definitely get these anchor bookmarks as your nautical wedding favor. They come individually packaged in a striped envelope that you can personalize with three lines of text. Plus, they go great if you've decided on vintage book centerpieces.

"Voyages" Anchor Muslin Favor Bags
If you are decided on an edible favor, like M&M's, but they're not exactly themed, you're in luck. You can grab these "Voyages" Anchor Muslin Favor Bags. Since they're not see through, you can fill them with anything you want and you don't have to worry about it matching your theme. The bag takes care of that for you.

Spectacular Anchor Design Candle Favors
Last candle favor on the list. I swear. But I couldn't pass up these spectacular anchor design candle favors. I mean, what a cute nautical wedding favor -- with some bling. The deep blue is so dramatic and will add so much color to your table settings. Plus, it'll cut your cost on table decorations and that's always a good thing.

Nautical Candy Boxes
If you're planning on a candy buffet being your wedding favor, you need these nautical candy boxes. They're 3 x 2.75 so they'll hold a nice amount of candy, but not too much that you'll have to buy the entire candy store. Plus, they're one of the few favors that if they don't all go, you can reuse them. Use them as popcorn boxes on movie nights or snack packs when you're trying to portion control.

Ship's Wheel Design Wine Bottle Stopper
A nautical favor list wouldn't be complete without the ship's wheel. The classiest place I found it was as a ship's wheel design wine bottle stopper. If you didn't like the cork on the wine bottle stopper above, this metal is the way to go. I love that the boxes are labeled to say, "Love is a Voyage" ... because that's a very true sentiment.

Nautical Mini Candy Bar Wrapper Sticker Labels


If you have a little free time pre-wedding (or really helpful bridesmaids), definitely pick up the nautical mini candy bar wrapper sticker labels. You can actually print on them yourself, so you can add your names and wedding date. Or just write "Ahoy." You then affix them to mini chocolates.
