After Pirates of the Caribbean the pirate theme became one of the most popular ideas for weddings and parties. If you are ready to rock this theme on your big day, I have some ideas to get you inspired – from attire to guestbooks! Ready to see them all? Let’s go!
If you are a daring couple who decided on such an interesting theme, why not go further and wear cool pirate costumes? Choose something cool that inspires you – for this you can watch the Pirates of the Caribbean and some series dedicated to them, too. Brides can wear medieval dresses, or try an off the shoulder wedding dress with embellishments and pearls. Add black flats with skulls to your look and maybe a fishing net with rhinestones as an eye-catching accessory.

Rock truly pirate wedding decor: lush floral centerpieces, treasure box centerpieces with gemstones (you can make them yourself), large ship centerpieces with pearls, rhinestones and florals. Use printed tablecloths and napkins, lush rhinestones and flowers, go for shells and oversized pearls – you may hang them on ropes on chairs. Make a wonderful wedding backdrop of a sailcloth piece and lush florals and greenery. Widely use ropes and boats for decor and displays – they bring a cool beach feel. An interesting idea is to give your guests escort cards with keys, with which they will unlock their places or menus with napkins. This way your guests will have fun finding their seats.

The bouquets can be made of shells, sea urchins and corals – this is a great idea not only for a coastal wedding but also a pirate one. Or just take a floral bouquet and wrap it with pearls, rhinestones and a rosary for a pirate feel, you know, they all loved tresures. Make fun guest books of a wooden anchor or a large bottle with messages – message in a bottle is classics. Attach escort cards to mini rum bottles and your guests will enjoy such favors!
