Mint, Coral and Ivory

Today’s palette was actually inspired by Katie, one of our readers who wrote me to say that she has chosen mint green and coral for her wedding palette but is having a hard time finding inspiration images featuring that particular combination. Well Katie, I hope this helps!

The bride and bridesmaids: Flowers in shades of light green would look quite pretty against coral bridesmaid dresses. To add a little color to the bride’s ensemble (without being too distracting), the bride’s bouquet could incorporate the same colors but in slightly paler shades. For a little punch of fun, unexpected color, the bride could wear coral colored shoes.

The groom and groomsmen: Tan or khaki suits would work well with this combination. The groomsmen could wear coral colored ties (to coordinate with the bridesmaid dresses) while the groom wears a mint tie with a single ivory bloom for the boutonniere.

Stationery Options: Our Quinn wedding invitation printed in Olive ink on Meadow paper would work quite well with this palette.

We also posted an extended version of this palette on the Southern Weddings blog…see it here.

    This is so pretty! Have you ever seen coral w/ gold for a wedding? That’s what I’m thinking of doing… I love this.

    Julie, I haven’t come across any weddings in Coral and Gold but it sounds like a great palette! I’m sure it would be beautiful.

    I’m so doing this for my wedding… Possibly replacing the ivory for more of a pearl color!!! Coral and Green are my two favs!! This is perfect!! I’m glad I found this image.. It will make people who doubted my colors feel at ease!!
