Getting Ready to Tie the Knot? Here are Some of the Top 2016 Spring Wedding Trends!

2016 Spring Wedding Trends

If you’re planning a spring wedding in Colorado, here are some ideas to incorporate into your big day.

Wedding season is quickly approaching and with the new year recently beginning, there are some great 2016 spring wedding trends you’ll definitely want to consider incorporating into your special day. If you’re planning on having a Colorado destination wedding, these ideas will pair perfectly with your theme!

3-D Floral Appliques
Brides are going for dresses that really “pop” this season! Many of the dresses that hit the runway for spring 2016 feature 3D floral and lace appliques, which provide both a fresh and modern feel. Thanks to the 3-D printing trend, some brides are even incorporating 3-D design into their wedding cakes, candy stations, and even into table décor.

Simple Flowers
Instead of importing expensive, costly flowers that often get thrown out, brides are continuing to opt for locally-sourced, seasonal flowers. Single bloom and single flower bouquets made with orchids, lilies, peonies, and dahlias are chic and bold. Many brides are opting for potted centerpieces instead of sky high arrangements, and even incorporating fresh herbs, such as lavender and greens into flower displays.

Ombré and Watercolor
The ombré and watercolor trends are working their way into floral arrangements, bridal and bridesmaid dresses, and even invitations. Popular designers debuted wedding dresses with skirts that featured ombré layers in soft colors, along with watercolor print bridesmaid dresses. Continuing off the single bloom trend, brides are incorporating the ombré trend into their flowers by choosing one flower type in three or more shades for a display that pops. The Pantone Colors of the Year – Rose Quartz and Serenity are two light and airy colors that work well with these trends.

Foodie Favorites
With nearly everyone being a food critic these days, couples are starting to put more emphasis into menus this year. The farm-to-table trend is continuing into the spring, with dishes made with fresh, local ingredients. Comfort foods are also a hit, and chefs are putting creative twists on dishes, such as mac n’ cheese, miniature tacos, sliders, donuts, and more. Personalizing the menu with cultural dishes and hometown specialties are also all the rage. One dining trend is fading out this spring; instead of massive food stations, couples are opting for classic, sit-down dinners and hand passed hors d’oeuvres and desserts.

Located in the beautiful Vail Valley, The Lodge & Spa at Cordillera offers beautiful indoor and outdoor wedding venues in Colorado. Featuring breathtaking views of the Rockies, our scenery will make for the perfect backdrop for your big day. Our experienced event staff will handle all the details, and our top-rated dining team will help create a scrumptious menu for your reception. After a fun day of celebrating your love, both you and your guests can cozy up in our rustic, well-appointed guest rooms and suites.

We hope to be a part of your special day!
