Summer is an ideal time for clambakes. There is no better way to spend pre or post wedding day weekend than gathering all your friends and relatives for the informal clambake on the beach. Consider serving seafood like mussels, lobsters and sea crayfish grilled on charcoal. If you don’t want to bother yourself with food preparation turn to the local restaurant for catering service.

The first thing that comes to my mind when I think of the nautical-themed wedding is the seersucker. It could be incorporated into your wedding attire in a myriad of ways: you may have your groomsmen or bridesmaids wear the seersucker apparel. Moreover you may even have the groom opt for the seersucker suit.
