If you're searching for inspiration for your wedding décor and need to break free from the deep tones of winter, look no further than one of our favorite bright and airy combinations: lilac and mint! These pretty pastel hues are perfect for a romantic, garden-party inspired reception that's bursting with the first signs of spring. Hosting winter nuptials? No problem! This dreamy pairing will help enliven your cool-weather wedding. Here's one way to utilize this color combo:
Start with a color-blocked invitation in the two colors with lots of bright white text. This option from Fourteen-Forty feels feminine yet still entirely modern thanks to a cool geometric design. Your bridesmaids will love either of these pale tones for their dresses. Balance their look with a mostly-white bouquet with pops of mint and lilac or a cool accessory, like a green clutch.
For table settings, consider minty dinnerware overtop a lilac tablecloth — the result is so beautiful and unexpected. End the evening with a sweet, pale-purple confection that is perfectly pretty.
