We recently attended a wedding in Cape Cod and were absolutely inspired by all of the coastal New England details! From the hints of nautical decor, the natural, coastal elements plus some fresh romantic florals, this wedding had us swooning. We knew right then and there we wanted to re-create our own Nantucket inspired wedding using a vast array of Oriental Trading’s wedding products! We added hints of both rustic and chic coastal elements along with a modern pattern and color palette and were truly thrilled with how it turned out!
As soon as we knew we were going to be styling a Nantucket Inspired Wedding, our minds immediately went to oysters. They are a quintessential part of coastal life and we knew we just had to have them be a part of our decor. Now, how to use oysters in a chic and elegant way that was fitting for a wedding? That was the conundrum. But then we thought, “how amazing would these oyster shells look if we gold foiled them?” and we had our answer! We decided to make these naturally gorgeous shells into beautiful gold foiled place cards and couldn’t be happier with how they turned out. Find out how we made them now!
