Mint

Theming your wedding with a colour is brilliant fun! By choosing to combine all the elements of your celebration via palette, you gain the freedom to play with more styles, cuts and shapes throughout your entire day.

Bridal Party - Mint

Holding your big day during the warmer months? Choose Summery colours that are in vogue at the moment.  Shades of mint will make your reception fresh and stylish! By selecting a colour that is less girly, you can easily add more frills, flowers and feminine elements! 

Your bridesmaids will love you, as this colour is great with any complexion. A very light touch of fake tan is all they'll need to look like sun-kissed babes against this gorgeous pop of colour! It's also a lovely, subtle contrast against the white of your wedding dress, easily drawn together with a few sprigs of green in bouquets. A delicate sweep of pastel pink blush across the cheeks and your bridal party will be looking like sugar-candy princesses. 

Speaking of sugar, take your theme from clothing to dessert with some mint coloured macaroons. Available in flavours like pistachio and chocolate, coconut, mojito and melon, these light green delicacies will have your wedding looking so Frenchy, so chic! Si fabuleux!

Don't forget to theme up your thirst-quenchers! Choose colourful fruit juices and punch. Or add a splash of colour to your champagne flutes with an edible flower in every glass (for help choosing, see our edible flowers article!).

And we must not forget the gents of the day! They'll scrub up rather dapper in patterned mis-matched vests, ties, cravats and shoes, while at the same time still looking like “Team Groom” up on the alter.
