I’ll let you in on a secret…while Aspen may be best known for its glamorous winter ski season, it’s just as beautiful in the summer. In fact, maybe more so! As soon as summer hits, Mother Nature really shows off with sunny skies and trails covered in wildflowers. It’s also a wonderful time for a Colorado destination wedding, which is why so many of our clients choose this season to say “I do.” Today I’m sharing some of the best summer wedding ideas from Bella weddings and events to inspire you.

For all the summer vibes, opt for a palette of brights. Use the hues throughout your wedding or just for pops of color, like these stunning wildflower-filled bouquets.

Take advantage of beautiful weather by hosting all or part of your wedding outdoors. An outdoor ceremony is a must, but al fresco dining is a uniquely summery reception option. Marquees also make a great alternative!

Embrace the festival feeling by having live music instead of a DJ. Set up a dancefloor outside and let your guests dance the night away under the stars!

Clear acrylic signage is perfect for summer as it retains the light, airy feeling that you want to create. Use it for everything from table plans to bar signs.

One of the pleasures of summer is wearing sweet summer dresses. So why not let your bridesmaids choose their own in similar shades? Mismatched summer dresses look just darling – especially with wildflower bouquets!

Creative and colourful cocktails scream summer weddings to me! Whether you serve signature drinks or create a cocktail station to let guests mix their own, they’re a fun way to battle the heat and get the party started!
