Marrying two cultural wedding themes?

Hi everyone!
I’m getting married April 2021 and all confused with my wedding theme! I’m a Long Island girl who loves everything beach/nautical. My fiancé was born and raised in Ecuador. How do I marry our two “cultural styles in the wedding decor? Our colors are nautical navy with silver and I originally was going with pastel flowers and seashell/Hamptons vibe decor. But my fiancé wanted something more colorful, thus the change to bright pink flowers below. How do I incorporate both styles in the decor? Can I still do seashells and beach decor with the bright florals and incorporate his style more in the food and music? Feeling conflicted!

    Thanks so much for the link and tips! I haven’t been to Ecuador (yet!) but I wanted to make sure I included his heritage into the wedding. Definitely will bring in some ethnic foods and lots of spanish music for sure

    I don't think weddings need themes, more just a cohesive aesthetic sense. I think you can do shades of blue and softer beach colors accented by bolder florals pretty easily, especially if the bold florals are in a limited color palette, like the example you have above.
