Mint is always such a tough color to match. I never know if its the blue green tone or the more green blue tone! I was so happy when the Bride asked to add Mint into the bouquets via foliage. The baby Seeded Eucalyptus leaves and Dusty Miller add a natural Mint color the bouquet and pair nicely with the Bridesmaid's skirts. And I have no control over what Mother Nature decides to do, so the tone was completely out of my hands!
The one thing I did have control over choosing was what Rose we should go with when picking Roses in White and Dusty Pink. My all-time love for a White Rose is a Polo. Hands down because of their size, but also because of their cabbage face. They look like a Garden Rose, but have a more durable petal, they are more than half the cost, and they come in larger bunches.
I love Mother of Pearl for a Dusty Pink Rose. They have a two tone effect. The face of the petal is a softer Blushy Tan color, while the back side of the petal is a darker more intense Dusty color. I love how they photograph. They themselves add so much contrast to the bouquet.
I love the playfulness of this Wedding. Not only by their photography, but by how Amber chose to do a top and skirt instead of dresses for the girls. The mismatched White lace shirt allows each girl to have her own identity while holding the same bouquet and wearing the same skirt.
