Looking for a fresh wedding theme? Today we’re showing off mint and metallic, a winning combination that’s light and airy.
It’s a “feel-good” theme that creates a perfect environment for a spring or summer wedding. Use soft mint hues to create a beautiful backdrop for shiny gold and rose gold accents. All your details—shoes, cocktails, florals and tablescapes—are perfect elements to customize so that your dream of a romantic wedding day comes true.
We love this elegant green wedding invitation, designed with hues of mint and real metallic gold foil. Give guests a peek into your big day with this stylish design.
After you choose your color theme and your invites, go ahead and have fun styling your day with all the pretty details. Here’s how with a mint and metallic theme:
Treat your guests to a signature after-dinner drink, like mint-flavored cocktails rimed with gold sugar. Look to your wedding theme for inspiration to create unique mixed drinks. Use flavors that match your colors—lime margaritas for a green cocktail or sparkling rosé cocktails for a rose-gold drink.
Don’t be afraid to pull out those mint linens to show off your colors. Accent your tablecloths with gold flatware and plate chargers. Add gold Chiavari chairs for a final touch, and for extra color, use cushions in a mint hue.
Set a beautiful dessert bar with vintage, mix-match candy jars and fill them with colorful candy, like mint-colored Jordan almonds. Don’t settle for typical colors and flavors that don’t fit your theme. Ask bakers and candy companies for color options—they usually have more choices than what’s advertised.
There are no rules when it comes to styling your bridal look. Mint-colored wedding shoes with gold accents are perfect for this theme. Tell your photographer ahead of time that you want to capture interesting shots of your dress and those special mint-colored shoes.
Some of the most interesting staged photos are of the bride’s dress. Find antique chairs, armoires, vintage upholstered footstools or doors and paint them in mint green. Then, distress the furniture to give them a rustic look. Now you have a dramatic backdrop for your dress and bridal party photo shoot.
Create beautiful green arrangements with pops of colorful flowers—Waxflower and Misty Blue—and add our favorite mint-colored greenery, Dusty Miller, for a soft, velvety look. Or, looking for something monochromatic? Use foliage like Eucalyptus, ivies, ferns, Generic Hosta and green flowers, like Chrysanthemums and Wimbleton Roses, to create an all-over green look.
When choosing all your details: linens, cocktails, furniture, desserts and your wedding attire, go above and beyond to find them in your mint and metallic theme. When your big day comes filled with your beautiful style, you’ll know all your attention to detail was worth it.
Have fun finding your own unique ways to dress up your green wedding, with some sparkle and shine!
