The color mint is blowing up right now! It’s everywhere from the runways to nail polish. While many people associate it with the retro refrigerators and bathrooms of the 50s, it doesn’t have to be reserved just for vintage style weddings. Mint has the versatility to compliment any style of wedding from shabby chic and vintage to modern and fresh. And fresh is what this color does best! No matter what colors you pair it with the result is anything but the same-ol’-same ol’. Yes, I’m looking at you red + black + white!
Tangerine + Mint
Paired with Tangerine, Mint works well for a bright, beach-side soiree or a vintage, sunset-hued wedding with the addition of coordinating shades of coral. The soft mint compliments brighter shades of tangerine and keeps the palette from looking like a sports team. Instead of typical greenery try using succulents in the bouquets to tie in the dusty greenish-blue without adding any yellow-green to the palette.

Chocolate + Mint
Pairing chocolate brown with mint is not a new concept but that doesn’t mean the palette must be stale. By keeping the style uncluttered and clean you can create a retro vibe without that says refined rather than dated. Avoid shiny browns, such as glaring satin ribbon, that look dated and stick with matte textures. Don’t be afraid to use brown flowers. Yes, flowers come in brown! Our favorite: chocolate cosmos. Not only do they look stunning in an otherwise white bouquet but they have a deliciously chocolaty scent – not a bad idea for something you’ll be holding for hours!

When choosing your color palette don’t forget about the delicate shade that is mint. It has a sweet, refined feel that will add something special to your big day no matter the style.
