Have a Minty Fresh Wedding

Emerald may have been the color of the year for 2013, but this year, its toned-down cousin is popping up more and more. See how you can incorporate a lighthearted mint shade to have a minty fresh wedding.

The Dresses

Mint will look especially gorgeous for your bridesmaids’ dresses. They can choose from a long-sleeved lace option, or they can go with a shorter, more casual lace style.

You can even apply your minty theme to your own dress. While it may be straying from the traditional wedding gown, mint goes well with almost any skin tone color, so you’ll look stunning no matter what. Want to keep your dress white but still while still throwing a splash of mint into your wedding day outfit? Add a simple mint-tinted flower crown in lieu of a veil!

The Decor

If you’re highlighting the mint theme everywhere else throughout your wedding, you may want to keep your decor a little more low-key. You might want to go with a white lace table top linen rental, for example, or you could opt for neutral tablecloth linen and then add a mint lace table runner. Whichever option you choose, you’ll create an elegant atmosphere for your wedding.

The Food and Drinks

For your cake, you have so many mint options from which you can choose. You can have your cake iced ombre-style, or you can have your mint cake adorned with accents in other colors. Many brides seem to be pairing mint and gold together for their cakes, too, so if you love a little flash, that color combination could be great for you.

If you really want to get into the theme, try out a peppermint icing tinted in your light green shade‚ after all, mint is a flavor, too!

Want a signature drink for your wedding? This one’s a no-brainer‚ mint mojitos will fit your theme perfectly. Or, for those who won’t be drinking, you can set up a beverage dispenser with mint-infused water. Don’t forget to set up your spread on a tablecloth linen for an extra polished look.

The Takeaways

You already know how much I love the little details of any wedding, and that mindset has stayed the same for the mint wedding theme. When you offer your guests favors, you have more of a chance to customize your wedding experience for them. So what can you do to be unique and stay within your theme? Set up a spread of mint-colored candies and brown paper bags on a mint green table top linen rental, and let your guests go crazy packing up some sweets to take on the go.

If you want to take your theme as literally as possible, offer your guests a box of mints. I promise they won’t think you’re telling them they have bad breath! Instead, they’ll think the favor is cheeky and adorable, especially if you customize it with your names and a phrase like mint to be. Too cute, right?
