Florals & Decor for Every Season in the Yampa Valley
As you begin to plan your wedding in Steamboat Springs, there are a few things to consider when deciding which season is best for your big day. Are you wanting a vibrant green valley as a backdrop to your wedding in the late spring and summer months or a ski-themed ceremony at the top of Steamboat Resort? Maybe you’re seeking the natural beauty that fall colors bring, or a chic, winter-white wedding. Here are some seasonal suggestions for florals and decor for your Steamboat wedding day.

The weather can be unpredictable during
spring in Steamboat. Chilly temps and snow
storms have been known to linger in the
valley into April and May. And while you
might see an occasional snowstorm in the
early parts of June, this is the month when
the valley typically begins to warm up, the
trees pop with bright green and the foliage
returns to life.
Spring is the peak season for a lot of flowers – peonies, lilacs and daffodils, to name a few – which makes for a great time of year to walk down the aisle. With a budding landscape as a backdrop, a spring color scheme will highlight the sense of renewal that the season brings.
There’s nothing quite like summertime
in the Rocky Mountains. Come July and
August, the sun is shining, the days are long,
the town is bustling with summer activities
and wedding season is in full swing in
Steamboat. With breathtaking sunsets,
warm weather and wildflowers in full
bloom, it’s no surprise that summer is the
busiest time of year to say your vows.
Complement your wedding theme with summertime decor like lush greenery and natural, whimsical blooms. Create a boho vibe with light colors and dreamy string lights. Or match the rustic theme with Western wear at your ranch-style wedding.
Fall is undoubtedly a naturally beautiful
time of the year, especially in the Yampa
Valley. Electric colors encompass the entire
valley, putting on a brilliant display on your
wedding day. Combine fall harvest colors
with late-bloom florals like anise or sunset
hyssop, sunflowers or goldenrod.
When considering your fall wedding colors and decor, think of the seasonal foliage, pumpkins, squashes and gourds. Whether it’s a traditional, rustic or chic wedding, these rich hues work well with any wedding theme.
If you choose to have your wedding in the
winter, plan for a magical time in Steamboat.

florals thrive during the winter. Amaryllis,
ranunculus and amaranthus are popular
winter blooms. The rich, jewel tones of
winter florals make for a stylish wedding
A winter wedding provides quite the romantic atmosphere with cozy fires, warm candles and twinkling lights. Incorporate a winter environment by adding pine cones and evergreen branches into your decor. Add a festive feel to the celebra
