Chic Peach and Mint Wedding
We love any wedding with an equine feature! And a horse with a golden mane and a wreath of green is especially adorable.
Peach and mint suit this outdoor venue wonderfully. Take a look at the long table with mint chairs sitting so inviting under a tree in full bloom. The bride, with her peach and mint bouquet, is ready to welcome guests to this special day.
Colour Palettes for a Chic Peach and Mint Wedding
The wedding colour palette should definitely be peach and mint! Considering all the beautiful combinations that go well with peach and mint, it is no wonder that so many couples choose this versatile palette. These prominent hues go very well with deeper grey, navy blue, and solid tan shades. Many couples also prefer ombre shades of mint and green to pair up with the stunning peach.
However, the mint and peach also pair beautifully with neutral shades of beige, off-white, cream, and gold. These wedding colours should be used with other shades to bring out the stunning pastels throughout the ceremony and reception.
What to Look for in a Venue for a Chic Peach and Mint Wedding
Couples who choose the peach and mint wedding theme should consider outdoor wedding venue options. These colours are nature-inspired and will look fabulous against a natural backdrop. This colour palette is ideal for summer and spring weddings with gorgeous natural beauty to make them pop.
Wedding venues like barns, wineries, gardens, rooftops, yachts, lakeside resorts, and more make for excellent choices that will help bring your chosen colours to the forefront. When finalising the venue, ensure enough accommodation for your guests. Many wedding venues offer overnight guest packages, including breakfast the following morning. Negotiate the rates, packages, and details before booking the venue for your chosen dates.
Details for a Chic Peach and Mint Wedding
It is easy to go overboard when planning a wedding theme based on colours. While peach and mint are pastel shades and look gorgeous in tandem, it is possible to throw them in too often, diminishing the subtle impact. Instead, the mint and peach's restrained use will help make the wedding look chic, glamorous, and gorgeous.
Some examples to help understand this concept are if you plan a floral wedding arch, you could have peach flowers with some greens in varying colours. Other florals to add are white and blush to offset the excessive peach. The same restraint should be applied to different aspects of the wedding, including the overall reception and ceremony décor, wedding props, and gifts. Adding secondary complementary colours will help bring the wedding colours together organically.
Table Setting Style for a Chic Peach and Mint Wedding
The table setting style for the wedding could be with an abundance of fresh blooms, pretty table linens, and napkins in mint, with chair covers in peach, or mint chairs as we see in the images. The flowers along the centrepiece should also be peach, blush, and white, interspersed with plenty of green.
To create a romantic, mellow vibe, you could opt for tall lit candles in white placed on gold candelabras or small white tea lights placed in gold votives. Consider fine white china for the dishes, with gold or silver cutlery. The wine and water glasses could be coloured. You should opt for wooden tables without tablecloths and allow the florals to speak volumes if you're planning outside reception seating.
Wedding Dresses and Accessories for a Chic Peach and Mint Wedding
Brides need not opt for peach, pink, or mint wedding gowns. They can stick to traditional white gowns with a strapless neckline, lacey leaf embroidery, and a mermaid train. You can also style this pattern with a flowy, chic asymmetric wedding dress to suit your fashion style.
Many brides prefer birdcage-style netted veils with tiny pearls sewn in for an additional glam factor. If you want a traditional veil, you could go for one with a long train and a headband in gold or rose gold to accentuate the delicate work of the gown. For accessories, pearl earrings and a small pendant with minimal makeup should do the trick.
Groom Style for a Chic Peach and Mint Wedding
Like the bride, the groom does not have to dress in mint. Grooms can opt for grey or navy blue suits to offset the paler shades of peach and mint while looking extremely dashing. You can accessorise with a mint pocket square or a peach floral boutonniere to stick to the wedding colours. However, you can also get this look with a peach or mint bowtie.
A gold or silver metallic watch, black shoes, and grey socks should complete the look when it comes to accessories. If you want to stick to the wedding colours and prefer a light peach suit, you can add a secondary solid shade like a white shirt with black shoes to tone down the look.
Wedding Invitations for a Chic Peach and Mint Wedding
It is best to choose stationery that compliments your preferred colours when it comes to wedding invitations. Shades like olive green, blush, and light orange are excellent and go well with the colour palette (without clashing). You can also use this colour palette on other wedding stationery like the menus and escort cards to bring the palette together.
The invitations can have beautiful calligraphy scripts in gold or black against a peach background with mint florals. If you want to go paperless, these shades will also look bright and vivid on digital invites.
Wedding Cake Ideas for a Chic Peach and Mint Wedding
The wedding cake can be a work of art with a naked cake design with cream frosting and a peach cake topper. However, if you want the cake to be more cohesive with both the wedding colours, you could opt for a multitiered confection in peach with white lace and pretty spring or summer florals to add grace and beauty.
If you want a dramatic wedding cake, you could also commission an elegant peach cake with cascading florals with hand painted mint-coloured motifs. This style of cake is visually dynamic and is a showstopper. You could have a dual-tone cake topper or opt for a single-tone topper in shiny gold.
Portrait Props for a Chic Peach and Mint Wedding
While you can opt for several types of portrait props, you should stick to organic and natural props as far as possible. Considering the colour theme of the wedding, adding material props could spoil the entire wedding photoshoot. You could do so with blooms like peonies, dahlias, anemones, and garden roses if you want to add portrait props. You could also add soft greenery like dusty miller, mullein, and lamb's ear.
If you want to add some flair, you could have mint-coloured glass bottles with peach twine as portrait props which can later be used as name card holders. Depending on the overall style of the wedding, you could also have your pets in garlands of peach flowers.
Favours and Gifts for a Chic Peach and Mint Wedding
Wedding favours and gifts are excellent ways to thank your guests for being part of your big day. The wedding favours should be personalised; guests will think of you often. One excellent wedding favour idea is to give each person a basket of succulents in peach pots. These are pretty wedding favours. They represent your love of nature and stick to the mint and peachy colours.
Other ideas are a bag of mints (pun intended!), a small burlap cloth bag with peach aromatherapy candles, a packet of mints, coasters in the wedding colours with your names, and the wedding date. If you want to give your guests something sweet, you could have some customised macarons in peach and mint specially packed for guests with a thank you note.
