If you're planning a springtime wedding, you're undoubtedly brainstorming ways to incorporate the bright, flower-filled season into your big day. And one of our favorite ways to embrace the signs of spring 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.

There are endless ways to transform your average reception dessert into a bonafide spring wedding cake. Consider fresh blooms and pretty pastel hues, such as 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 naked wedding cake. While we especially love them for fall nuptials, they can be the perfect treat for your spring wedding, even if just kept simple with a charming 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.

Ready to find the perfect look to inspire your own springtime soirée? Read on for 26 of our favorite spring wedding cakes.
