13 Ideas for a Coral, Mint, Peach and Pink Wedding

Warmer temps and cool breezes make muted citrus colors perfect for a late Spring, early Summer wedding. These shades are darker than the soft pastels of Spring, but more mellow than the vibrant shades of Summer. Mint, pink, peach and coral is a popular color combination for weddings this time of year, and definitely one of my favs!

Here are 13 of my favorite ideas for a mint, pink, peach and coral wedding!

Paper Goods

Invitations
Who says you can't pick out your own bridal shower invitations? (Never hurts to leave some not-so-subtle hints, too!) Etsy seller Haute Chocolate Favors offers this adorable cake invitation. Let them eat cake, coordinating in your wedding colors, of course.

These adorable pink, coral and mint wedding invitations are creations of Etsy seller Runk Pock Designs (cute name, don't you think?). Too, too perfect!

The Dress

Bridal Gown
I love this gown. This white lace, A-line gown is gorgeous enough, but to add the pink sash? Swoon! (No idea who makes it - if you know, pass it on so I can add a link!)

Bridesmaid Dress
The Dessy Group pulls through again! This coral duchess satin cocktail length dress with rolled flower accents is adorable, and complementary to all body types! It also comes full length, for more formal occasions.

Accessories

 Shoes
Add some pizzazz to a bridal ensemble with cute, colorful shoes! These pink Valentino bow shoes are to-die-for, as are the coral-and-white polka dot pumps

Aisle Decor
Mini-bouquets in glass containers add special touches to an aisle. This bunch was arranged by Maria Philbin Floral Design, based in Santa Rosa, CA. Don't you just love the coral-colored Dahlias?

Reception

Seating
Comfy seating during the Cocktail Hour and on is a must. Check out this collection of citrus-colored couches... A detail guests would definitely enjoy (especially after a night of celebratory libations)!


Table Setting
The quintessential tablescape! Bouganvilla, Coral Peonies, and real peaches in an antique wooden box... just so gorgeous!

Family Photo Table
Personalize your reception decor with wedding photos of family members. Makes for a great conversation piece! This photo is from my wedding, and featured wedding photos of my grandparents and our parents. These now sit in my craft room, as inspiration when I create wedding pieces for my Etsy shop, Sadie Bloom Designs!
