Wedding Inspiration: Mint and Cream

While nature’s glitter may be falling outside my window, and turning my neighborhood in to a winter wonderland yet again, I am looking forward to the beauty of spring. Mint and cream is a refreshing color palette for those early spring weddings. Here is a mint and cream inspiration board, which includes a mint wedding dress and a mint favor to carry your guests in to the rest of the spring season. Consider a signature mint julep cocktail and beignets to top it all off.
