Mountain wedding ideas await you in this post! But first, if you crave daily wedding inspiration like this subscribe so you never miss a post!
If you’re searching for the best mountain wedding ideas, we’ve most likely already found them and included them in this post! That’s how crazy comprehensive this mountain themed wedding guide really is. Since already we love mountain themed everything — totally on that “the mountains are calling and you must go” bandwagon, ya know — a mountain + wedding post just makes sense. I’ve already been digging around the web for my fave mountain inspired coffee mugs, jewelry and such (like this), so why not go a step further and dig around on Pinterest, too?
So, on my quest for awesome weddings in the mountains, I figured out just what happens when you plan a mountain wedding.
Ready for it?
The result of planning a mountain wedding: you become more aware of your natural surroundings. You appreciate the nature that is all around you. You plan a remarkable wedding with the most breathtaking backdrops imaginable.
When you plan a mountain wedding, you design the most creative, unique wedding that most couples would only dare to dream of.
But you’re here, doing it. And we think that’s pretty cool. Can we come?! I kid.
But really, your guests won’t even see what’s coming when they RSVP to your wedding in the mountains. They’ll think, oh wow, that sounds pretty relaxing… but wait until they see morning coffee views of the Smokey Mountains. Or the Rockies. Or breathe in the crisp mountain air on a jog before your rehearsal dinner. Or grab drinks with other guests at a local hotspot with views of sunsets over mountain ridges.
I’m telling you, I’m really lovin’ on this mountain wedding stuff.
So I did some digging. And more digging. Because I want you to get the most out of this whole outdoorsy vision and bring it to fruition for your incredibly memorable big day.
I found some seriously gorgeous reception ideas. Wedding invitations. Gifts! And it really took off! And even after I’ve whittled down this list, took an axe to some (still cool, but not quite on-point) ideas, and then took one last look at it, we still ended up with slightly over fifty awesome mountain wedding ideas. There should be a little something here for every mountain-lover, we say!
Whether you’re planning a small intimate wedding near the Smokey Mountains or a huge soiree with stunning Rocky Mountain views, you’ll find some of the most creative mountain ceremony spaces, reception decor, favors, gift ideas, and more right here. We’ve rounded up over fifty (plus!) amazing mountain wedding ideas to inspire the Best Day Ever, all mountainside!
So, grab a cup of coffee (I’m picturing something like this and maybe sippin’ on this) and get inspired because it’s Friday, the weekend is upon us, and you’re about to embark on a pretty rad assortment of mountain-inspired wedding stuff. Enjoy!
Mountain Wedding Ideas
First, dream up your perfect wedding location.
It can be in the mountains, in a park with mountain views, at a cabin, in the woods. Wherever. In fact, it doesn’t have to be in the mountains at all; it can be in a nature-inspired setting with small mountain accents to show your love for the mountains or getting outdoors in general.
Once you select a location… it’s time to tell guests the exciting news of where and when the wedding will take place. Let’s tie it all into the theme!
P.S. Isn’t this a cute sign?! Great for your wedding entry table as decor, then afterward at home! By LabelsRUs.
