Tying the Knot with Rope Bracelets and a Seaside Stay

In 2010, after knocking back a few Dark & Stormies, lifelong sailor David Norton thought about tying the knot…on a bracelet. His version of the bracelet: a simple square knot with clean, subtle lines, made solely from marine-grade materials. It was this ornamental band that launched his accessory shop Lemon & Line.

More recently, Lemon & Line has brought its maritime sensibilities to a partnership with Newport Marriott (eager to show off its brand-new multimillion-dollar renovation) to offer bridal parties a turnkey gifting and accessory solution: elegant nautical bracelets and romantic amenities bundled into two travel packages: the Newport Marriott Lemon & Line Bridal Package and the Celebration Suite Package.

For landlubbers and sea lovers alike, the hotel packages are full of goodies—think spa treats, champagne, and chocolate. Plus, you get a Lemon & Line gift card that comes with a private consult from Norton, in which you’ll learn tips on choosing the right gifts for your bridal party. You can then put that knowledge to work when you shop his bracelets and accessories. Whether you get something for your guys and gals or treat yourself, you have to check out the rope bracelets (available in Newport, Vineyard, Bristol, Nantucket, and Turks Head styles), regatta belts, or boat bags.
