I love a spring wedding! There’s something extra special about a couple starting a new phase of their lives at a time when nature itself is full of new life. Here in Colorado, as the winter snows slowly melt into a sunny summer and the wildflowers begin to bloom, it’s a wonderful season for a mountain destination wedding. Even though the weather can be a little unpredictable, it’s the perfect time of year to incorporate natural elements and fresh floral accents that celebrate the springtime. And, of course, to get out into the fresh air and enjoy those gorgeous views! With spring just around the corner, I’m excited to share some of my favorite spring wedding details to inspire.
An outdoor ceremony is ideal for a spring wedding, but even if the weather sends you indoors, you can still create a lovely garden feel with a floral ceremony arch.
Spring weddings mean floral prints, whether that’s in your table runners, linens or other details. Bridesmaid dresses are the perfect place to introduce a floral print and make your girls feel extra pretty on your big day!
Take advantage of the seasonal bounty of blooms, including spring faves like peonies, with a pastel bridal bouquet.
What better way to celebrate the season than with floral favors or escort cards? These little bud vases made for a lovely escort card display and doubled up as a little gift. Another lovely spring favor option is seed packets, which you can have customized to tie in with your wedding stationery.

Choose a seasonal spring menu, and include edible flowers for that extra whimsical touch!
Florals are a perfect match for spring wedding stationery, and can be matched to your wedding colors or kept subtle in sage or neutrals. Or, for a real garden pop, have your stationery designer use pretty floral print envelope liners.
A hanging floral installation will transform your venue and wow your guests. Not to mention the delightful fresh scent! It’ll feel like walking through a spring garden all day long.

Of course, spring brings milder weather, but in the mountains it’s always a good idea to have a bit of extra coverage! A beautiful bridal capelet will still have you looking ethereal, but stave off any April chills. And don’t forget an umbrella, just in case!
Opt for a loose, freshly-picked look for your spring table florals rather than formal, structured arrangements.

Floral wedding cakes are a given for spring. Deck a simple cake in fresh flowers or greenery, or have your cake designer create beautiful sugar flowers as decorations. For a fresh twist, you could also opt for a painterly Monet-inspired creation with hand painted florals, that still evokes that garden wedding feeling.
