Mint, Gold & Pink Palette – Fabulously Fresh & Modern Spring Wedding Style for 2014

Mint is definitely one of the top wedding colours for 2014 weddings and we for one are collectively loving this fresh, modern and somewhat alternative shade of green! Emerald made a huge impact last year but this shift to pastels is certainly more in-keeping with the overall trend towards clean, chic and playful wedding themes. When it comes to mint – or, as Pantone declared it when they announced it as one of the top colours for spring 2014, ‘Hemlock’ – we are loving it paired with pretty pinks and elegant golds.

Whether you use a gold glitter or a metallic, gold will provide a beautiful contrast to mint. For your spring wedding, consider white table cloths with a mint runner sprinkled with gold confetti. Alternatively go for a sequinned gold runner with an array of mint and white vases with pink, white and green flowers as your centrepiece.

Mint-iced wedding cakes are a big cake trend this year, in particular with gold glitter cake toppers and ribbons as embellishments. It is also a fabulous shade for bridesmaid dresses, paired with cream or natural coloured shoes and gold jewellery. Check out our mini moodboard below for just a few of the hundreds of ways to create your modern minty wedding theme.

    Thanks a mill for this! I hadn’t even looked at material as I was hoping that I wouldn’t have to get the dresses made but I may have to rethink this! Just don’t know costs etc involved and who to go to etc. the drama lol! Thanks!!!

    oh right, i thought you were making them. both my sisters made their bridesmaid dresses and they said it doesn’t work out any cheaper but if you have unusual shapes to dress,it beats trapsing around the shops trying to please everyone!!

    Mellissa I got my dresses in the exact colour I wanted on ‘The Celebrity’. They have fabulous dresses in virtually any colour. Very reasonable too! I ordered on first to see the quality and what the sizing was like and I have ordered two more since. I’m thrilled with them.
