Create a sense of whimsy with this happy pairing – mint has a preppy feel while coral keeps things fresh and cheerful. Mix them with gold or even copper for a super-luxe look. This palette would be perfect for a late-spring or summer celebration or a destination wedding someplace tropical.
How To Use It: If you’re going for a more elegant vibe, play up the mint – it’s sophisticated yet totally approachable – and don’t be afraid of metallics. Incorporate the hue into details like your invitations, bridesmaid dresses (groomsman pocket squares too!) and table linens. Make lush coral peonies the mainstay of your floral arrangements – even the sugar blooms on your cake. Put hints of coral in details like your favors or the ribbon on your ceremony program. If you’re hosting a seaside affair, let coral lead the way. Treat guests to a tropical pre-ceremony cocktail and have some sun umbrellas and fans handy to beat the heat. Set lively tables with pops of coral and hints of mint (think: chargers, escort cards, and florals). Include other mint touches throughout, such as custom cocktail napkins and striped straws, a color-coordinated candy bar or confetti for your grand exit as newlyweds.
