When it comes to picking a wedding color you may think mint green while another bride says it is sea foam, or the color Gods of Pantone Paint call it grayed jade for 2013's fashion color report. Whatever you may call this gorgeous blueish green shade, there are many ways to color your wedding with it. Whether it's a mint green bridesmaid dress or a mint green wedding cake, we have it all. Check out these great 8 Ways to Plan a Mint Green Wedding...
Whether you are celebrating a Mint Green Wedding under the stars, handing out sparklers to be lit as you say goodbye, or just looking for an elegant yet whimsical invitation, this may be the perfect one for you! How ironic is it that the name of the paper-goods company who produced this lovely wedding invitation is named "Minted"!
As you can see by these two gorgeous heels, you'll find that mint green comes in a few different shades. It can be a soft, pale color that is similar to mint green ice cream or it can have a deeper tone that is similar to a succulent plant. Depending on the items you want for your mint green wedding, it may be easy or difficult to find everything in the same mint shade you prefer. To make your wedding planning less hectic, consider mixing these two tones together.
This gorgeous mint green bib necklace on the right has been trending ever since Anthropologie sold it in their stores last Spring.

If you are a bride who loves big statement jewelry, don't be afraid to let your fashionista side come out to play when you wear a bold necklace and earrings to match your mint green wedding day. Go big or go home!

When I saw this Vera Wang wedding dress I just gazed in amazement and thought, "How can I do a mint green wedding post without this dress"! This dress was meant for me, it was waiting for me to find it! Oh the things Vera does with tulle and color, she is one of a kind. How great is it that she now has a more inexpensive line with David's Bridal. However, this is from her own collection and you will have to call for a price and an appointment!
If you aren't big on wearing a mint green wedding dress, show your love for your wedding color in the little details. I love colored ribbon on bridal bouquets and how they give the bride a pop of color as she walks down the aisle. Also think about spray paintingyour centerpiece jars and cans mint green or covering your tables with mint green linens. All of these pops of mint green in your details will help pull together your theme in a classy way without overwhelming your guests with a color they will never get out of their head!

Mint green is an elegant chic color that can be worn on your bridesmaids for a fancy loft wedding or on the beach for a seaside affair. It compliments any theme, whether it's a rustic wedding with cowgirl boots and tractors or a winter wonderland filled with snowflakes and snow boots. Let this color shine on your ladies and your theme as it transforms your space into the day you have been dreaming of.
What's a mint green wedding without a mint green wedding cake! What I love about all of these mint green ideas is the simplicity of them yet how chic they are at the same time. Nothing is too gaudy or too "mint green" with color that it will leave your guests saying, "What were they thinking?". Less is always more when it comes to planning your wedding around one color. You could also mix in other colors like black and white to give it a modern look like the anemones on this lovely three tiered cake.
Let's not stop at just serving a mint green wedding cake, go all out and keep the party going with a mint green dessert table! How can we leave out mint green ice cream for this big day or mint green macarons that taste like mint! I even found a recipe for mint mojito macarons...amazing! So while your friends are sipping from their mint mojito drinks in one hand, they can snack on their mint mojito macarons in the other!
Don't be afraid of soft colors like mint green, your wedding details will still shine and pop in your photos. If you are planning a spring or summer wedding, mint green will look lovely against yellow or coral flowers. For fall and winter weddings, think of mixing navy, purple, or red with your mint green wedding decor. Are you planning a mint green wedding?
