If you're a springtime bride, you're no doubt brainstorming ways to incorporate the bright, flower-filled season into your wedding. And one of our favorite ways to add signs of spring to your big day is through the wedding cake. Sure, a classic white confection is always in-season, but we can't help but dream of romantic spring-inspired styles for nuptials from March to June.
Color and Accents
There are endless ways to transform your average reception dessert into a bonafide spring wedding cake. Consider freshly bloomed flowers and pretty pastels like lilac, powder blue, lemon yellow, and soft blush to start. You can also take a cue from one of the latest spring wedding cake trends we love, and use dried and pressed flowers as a fresh way to incorporate florals in your confection. How pretty!
But it's not just color or decorative accents that make a cake speak entirely to your spring wedding date. Take, for example, a trendy naked wedding cake. While we especially love them for fall nuptials, they can be the perfect treat for your spring wedding when deftly crafted by the right baker and finished with a sprinkling of seasonal berries. Similarly, chic metallic wedding cakes don't necessarily seem spring-like, but when paired with garden-fresh blooms, the look becomes modern and fresh.
From pretty pastel wedding cakes to tiered confections teeming with flowers in a rainbow of hues, there are countless ways to add a seasonal touch to your big-day dessert that will feel entirely celebratory. So if you're feeling as excited for warm weather (and the start of wedding season!) as we are, here are 27 of our favorite spring wedding cakes.
