- Wedding: December 2015
Fiance and I have finally decided on a venue and placed a deposit on it! We are thinking that we want to go with mint and silver/grey for the wedding colors. However, I’m having so much trouble finding a way to tie mint into the wedding! We are getting married in December at 7:00 at night, and I’m finding mint hard to work with since it’s such a spring color. At first we were going to have the bridesmaids in mint, but David’s Bridal’s “mint” is more of a blue color than what I’m looking for.
Here are some pictures of the venue:
And here are some of the ideas:
We are leaning towards renting four sequin tablecloths: two for the cake tables, sweetheart table, and the guest book table. This is where I am unsure on what to do. We are going to use the drapes and have two chandeliers, like this wedding at our venue had:
We are leaning towards having mint tablecloths, using the silver chargers, and having white napkins (to match with the drapes). Plain white folding chairs come with the venue, but I am really wanting to do silver chiavari chairs with white cushions. Our centerpieces will be kept simple, with white flowers and candles.
Our other option would be to use grey tablecloths, no charger, and a mint napkin that would match the bridesmaids dresses. We would probably keep the white folding chairs with this option, or get the chiavari chairs. If we don’t have white chairs, I’m not sure how we would be able to tie in the white drapes. Would all this grey make the decorations too “fancy looking” for this venue? In all the pictures I’ve seen of it, most people go with neutral tones and have more of a rustic theme.
Most people that I know haven’t really been a big help because they tell us to do whatever we want, but I am really needing some opinions on this! If we go with mint tablecloths, how else could we incorperate mint? Would the tablecloths be enough? Will the mint tablecloths look odd for a wedding in December? If we go with grey tablecloths, how could we incorperate more mint into that? If we go with mint tablecloths, I am thinking that the bridesmaids will wear silver, and if we do grey then the bridesmaids will be in the mint-y blue from David’s Bridal. Please give me your opinions on what you would do!
