Mint Wedding Full Of Signs

mint and yellow wedding ideas @weddingchicks

Emily and  Raymond’s wedding day was a little rainy but it sure made for some gorgeous photos. A cheerful color palette of mint and yellow went a long way for brightening the overcast day.

The darling couple wanted to keep things simple and focus on having the time of their lives surrounded by their nearest and dearest. Simple can definitely be sweet, see all the little details from this mint wedding full of signs in the complete gallery here, photographed by Betty Elaine.

Why To Hire A Day Of Coordinator

I made most of the decor and our family friend made some really amazing signs for us as well. We used simple tulle for draping, kept things clean and bright with lots of white and gold and brought in color with the fun random mix of flowers. Our “splurge” was hiring a day of coordinator. Not only was she full of great money saving tips and ideas during the planning process, but the day of she was everywhere at once making sure things were exactly how they should be, and kept everything running without a hitch.

Wedding BBQ

Highlights for us were the reception of course! It’s always so fun to get to see everyone and relax after the ceremony stress is over, and the DJ did a great job keeping things fun. The 2nd best part was the food. Double Barrel BBQ did an amazing job and the food was delicious! Our guests also really loved the open bar, surprise surprise! We had 2 signature drinks- one was my favorite drink choice , and the other was a family tradition and in honor of Raymond’s grandpa who had passed away the year before.

Book Your Coordinator Early

One thing I would have done different is to have gotten my day of coordinator sooner. I didn’t have her until farther towards the end, and she was such a wealth of information and help which would have been really great earlier on! Also, remember that it’s a day about you and your other half. It can be hard to remember that when planning! Just remember that everything works out, people get over any guest list issues, and the day should be about celebrating you and your person surrounded by all the people you love.

Let Your Venue Speak About You

We picked this venue because we had attended a wedding there over 7 years ago when we first started dating. It’s a simple but gorgeous venue, and it’s on the beach which is a place we spend a lot of time together. We kept it simple, laid back and wanted it to be more like a big backyard/summer party then a formal traditional wedding- simple decorations, simple attire for the bridal party, good BBQ food, open bar with our favorite drinks, homemade raspberry and strawberry jam for favors and a lot of handmade decorations.

Mismatched Perfection

From the bride: I gave my bridal party inspiration for the look I was going for (soft neutrals for my bridesmaids and gold glittery dresses for my Maid of Honor, Matron of Honor & for the sister of the groom) and gave each of the girls freedom to choose their own dresses and accessories. That way they could wear something that suited their individual styles and personalities. I also had each of them choose a hairstyle that complimented them the most and it came together perfectly. I could not have been happier with the end result!

Organic Feel

Inspired by the natural landscape of the Rocky Mountains, we used colors from a neutral palette for our wedding with tons of green foliage and a pop of magenta color in our flowers to produce a natural and organic feel.

One of my favorite things about the wedding was the ceremony pergola that Ashley Swapp designed for me. The blush linens and foliage that lined the pergola went perfectly with our wedding colors and theme.

Choose What’s Important

Allocate your budget to the things that are most important to you on your special day. For instance, it was very important for me to find a great photographer and Connie was absolutely amazing and worth every penny. Pictures are worth a thousand words and these will help me remember the details from my wedding forever!

Waste Less Wedding

From JBM Photography: For this faux wedding we wanted to do things a little differently. We’ve seen too many things go to waste after a wedding is over, so we really wanted everything to be reusable, edible, upcycled or recycled.

Everything from the vintage rentals to the edible florals/herbs down to the seeded paper that can now be planted. The favors also fit in with the wedding day but also can be used at home in a realistic setting (bath bombs and herb seeds).

Make it Unique

We made sure to add as many unique touches as possible (mobile bar, poetry station, custom jewelry, gluten free desserts, sage baths, crystals, custom art, etc.) to show couples that they can easily make their wedding day more memorable and think outside the box to match their personalities.

Start With A Solid Foundation

We think when planning any wedding details you must start with its foundation. Which to us is the venue. With a heavy emphasis on florals and herbs, it made the venue itself stand out without adding any elements that felt foreign.
