Mint To Be

It's no secret; mint is one of the most popular color choices for weddings this year. And, today we have a guest post from blogger Bridget Sanderford telling us different ways to incorporate it. Take it away Bridget!

"Mint is the hot color for this season’s weddings. It is cool, wistful and romantic, invoking Southern charm and an airy feminine feel. You can use mint in everything from your cake to your favors to the attire that your bridal party wears. You can even use it for your own wedding gown if you want to do something really different.

There are many ways to use mint in your wedding décor. Check out some of these amazing ideas for a little mint inspiration for your wedding:

1. Wedding Gowns: Like we said, you can really make a statement in mint. Ditch the traditional ivory gown and opt for something that’s just as soft and feminine but still pushes the envelope a bit with style.

2. Mint Suits: If you want to stick with white, have your future hubby push the color envelope with a suit of mint instead.

3. Suit Ties: Head-to-toe mint can be a lot for some people. You can experiment with just a hint of color by opting for mint ties.

4. Bridal Party: Mint is such a great choice for the bridal party. It is soft enough to fit in with almost any style wedding, and it will complement a wide variety of skin tones.

5. Wedding Cakes: Let your wedding cake create a beautiful centerpiece in mint. If you don’t like the full-on color treatment, you can stick with a traditional white cake with mint accents. (Think of this cake in the inverse.)

6. Drinks: Opt for a specialty cocktail like those shown or choose a drink with a more literal interpretation of the theme such as a mint julep or a mojito (made with fresh mint).

7. Decor: Consider some funky décor like these rustic frames painted in mint for your reception. They make great props for photo taking, as well. You can also experiment with mint-colored flowers, tea lights and other décor for your reception tables.

8. Favors: Give out mints that are also mint-colored and that also use a play on words. It’s mint all over!

Look in bridal magazines and on websites like Pinterest to get even more ideas and inspiration for your mint-themed wedding. With a little creativity, you can use this popular color to create a look for your wedding that is both unique and stylish. You’ll have a wedding that is picture-worthy and that has a style that’s all your own.
