Choosing Wedding Colors
Many couples who are newly engaged and starting to plan their wedding are hoping to choose a theme to base most of their decisions on. One popular color trend right now that can be worked beautifully into a wedding is mint! Mint is such a soft color that you can match it with any other pastel or just keep that the main color throughout your wedding. It can tie into your decorations and invitations, and there are some gorgeous bridesmaid dresses out there that would look spectacular in mint. Top that off with some soft colored flowers and you will have a wonderfully dressed, elegant looking bridal party! Mint is not only a great color to work with, but it can turn into an entire theme by incorporating mint into other creative aspects of your big day. What if you had a dessert bar full of different mint flavored treats? You could have anything from mint chocolate chip ice cream to mint brownies or creme de menthe cheesecake! At the Sioux Falls Convention Center, we can customize your entire meal any way you’d like—including your mint themed desserts! You could also have favors set out at each place setting that had cute little mints in all different shapes, sizes, colors and flavors! There are the traditional Andes mints, mint M&M’s, peppermints, homemade cream cheese mints—the list goes on and on! You could even incorporate them into your centerpieces if you found the right color and filled glass jars will different mint stuff. Another great way to incorporate mint is by having a signature drink at the bar—how does a chocolate mint martini sound? That is a specialty we can do here at the Convention Center and it is just as delicious as it sounds! Another way we can tie in mint to your reception is by having mint available at our gourmet coffee station. We can do mint chocolate dipping spoons or mint flavored syrups and whipped toppings to create a scrumptious beverage. How about offering your guests a late night snack of milk and cookies? You can dip mint Oreo in your milk and munch on Thin Mints or warm homemade chocolate mint chip cookies! A super cute saying that can really tie everything together would be “We were mint to be together!” You can place that on your invitations, programs or dinner menus. The Convention Center can also customize monograms for you to project on the walls of your reception hall, so that could be something your guests would see as soon as they walk into the room—we can even project it in the color mint! So if you’d like to get started on your mint themed wedding, give us a call today!
