Mint, Anyone!

Have you heard the newest color craze?  Mint….and what a beautiful shade.  Mint is associated with something fresh, clean and strong, so what a great color choice for a wedding as all of these characteristics should be included in your wedding. 

There are a few color combos that work great with mint.  Martha Stewart pairs this shade with lemon yellow for a fresh look.  Another shade that goes great with mint is coral.  If you want to bring the shades down a little darker, grey would go nice too.   
Ways to include during the ceremony:
The bridal party can be decked out in the shade of mint.  The flowers for the bridal party and the bride can be accented with mint.  The bride, herself, has many options to add this color as an accent to her attire: jewelry, a sash, her shoes or hair piece.  The flower girl can follow this same style.  How about a mint colored church?  Would you go that far to find one?

A mint reception:
Couples are choosing wedding cakes and desserts covered in this theme.  Whether the cake has the shade for the icing, or you make custom cupcakes (chocolate with mint icing), both would be delicious.  A popular trend at receptions is having a signature drink for your guests to enjoy (which are always ready to be poured); having a Mint themed wedding, make your “Signature Drink” a Mojito.  Mint can even be incorporated into your favors, check out these different options including one with the slogan “Mint to be Together”.

Beyond the wedding:
The shade of mint is fashionable to add to your wardrobe.  When packing your honeymoon suitcase, remember to bring some key pieces in this shade.  It will bring some of your wedding away with you!
