Seaside Style: Creating a New England-Inspired Beach Wedding

Who says you need a lighthouse to have a New England-style wedding? Not us! You can rock that Cape Cod coolness wherever you are—even if the nearest beach is just a mirage. Whether you’re tying the knot in the heart of the city or on a sun-kissed southern shore, it’s all about those preppy, beachy elements and coastal grandma vibes.  Let Griffin’s Floral Design sprinkle some of that quintessential northern coast allure with bespoke floral and decor, bringing the spirit of New England to your special day — wherever it may be. 

Chose a Venue With a Waterfront Setting

If you can’t get to Martha’s Vineyard, bring the Vineyard to you! Think waterfront elegance or beachfront bliss. Scour your local wedding venues and select one with the best water views – be it a glittering lake, a gentle river, or even a glamorous pool will do! The goal is to say your “I dos”  under a breezy gazebo or on a deck that kisses the waves.

Trade in Traditional Tropical Blooms for Blue and White Floral Arrangements

We love fuschia and bold tropical flowers, but for a seaside chic style, wave hello to soft hues that scream New England charm. Channel the serene vibes of the coast with floral arrangements in soothing blues and crisp whites. Nothing says “nautical nuptial” quite like a clutch of hydrangeas. Pair those plush blooms with the elegance of white roses, the grace of calla lilies, and the height of delphiniums to create a bouquet that’s every bit as alluring as the coastal view.

Coordinate Bouquets and Boutonnières with Coastal Wedding Attire

For coastal wedding attire, it’s all about capturing that effortless class with a twist of laid-back luxe. Brides will stun in a flowing gown or a chic, form-fitting slip dress— can you say “beach goddess”? Grooms should think light and airy suits or a sharp navy blazer teamed with casual trousers for a perfect blend of dapper and chill. Complement any coastal wedding outfit with floral accessories in oceanic blues, pristine whites, or trendy peach tones to tie the seaside ensemble together.

Revamp Classics Flowers By Pairing Them With Unique Blooms

Classic coastal colors and timeless flowers are a yes, but adding a twist? Even better! Pair those beloved roses and hydrangeas with unexpected picks like stunning anemones or some rustic greenery and bold succulents. These playful additions add layers of texture and intrigue and set your wedding florals apart, creating a delightful fusion that’s refreshing and reassuringly familiar.
