Spring is just around the corner for those of us living in the northern hemisphere, and with warmer weather comes wedding season! Brides that are planning nuptials for the summer of 2014 have a plethora of options when it comes to wedding colors, but one of our favorite combos is mint, blush and gold. Especially perfect for vintage events, this trifecta of romantic colors embodies a soft, warm and feminine aesthetic.

The mint/blush/gold look is all about classic beauty. Brides opting to incorporate this color scheme should carry the look throughout their event, from wedding invites to dinner menus. Trendy mint and blush invites with romantic motifs – like the Hearts and Stripes invitation – will help convey your color scheme to your guests. Many brides opting for such a high-class look can start seeing dollar signs everywhere – but there’s no need to compromise! With a little creativity, you can still have champagne taste on a beer budget. Find cheap wedding favors that incorporate your colors and still embody the regal vibe for which your color scheme is famous. Tiny, clear favor boxes filled with pretty pink candies should do the trick. Place cards are another easy area to save cash with some DIY spirit. Lace appliques can be bought in bulk and lend themselves well to the mint/blush/gold theme.
Blush-hued napkins are a beautiful addition to any place setting, and the look works well within this color scheme. Incorporate blush and cream linens, and accent your tables with fresh greenery. For a DIY centerpiece, consider painting mason jars in gold, mint and blush hues. Fill your jars with herbs and baby’s breath (both of which are affordable plants), or splurge on one pink rose per jar.
Color-coded dessert table
Think dessert tables are reserved exclusively for expensive weddings? Think again. All it takes is a little elbow grease to set up a beautiful display that will leave your color scheme imprinted on the minds of all your guests. One bride used three whitewashed doors, two easels, some cream-painted plywood and a bevy of gorgeous DIY details to create a charming dessert display. Top your own dessert table with a mint- or blush-hued cake and garlands of gorgeous flowers – to save some cash, just pick up some silk flowers from a hobby or craft store. Use rustic crates to create alternating heights for your flowers and other decor items.
