Retro Seafoam, Mint and White


Lately, I’m fascinated with all things 1960s, and specifically anything seafoam green.  I love it.  For me, the color is a little art-deco, a little mod, a little retro… and so unique.  I would love to see a modern-day seafoam and mint green wedding.


Top row: mint green coat from the Demoiselle collection by Chelsey Mclaren via Oh Hello Friend, pleated mint green and white cake from Martha Stewart via Ritzy Bee, seafoam green dress via Apartment Therapy, mint green and pale blue letterpress wedding invitations by Hammerpress via Martha Stewart

Middle row: jadite and white dishes in cupboard from Pioneer Woman via Classic Bride, retro pale green bedroom from Coastal Living via Belle Vivir, night light with milky green glass from Sassy Glass Studio, mint green cafeteria trays from The Relic Trail

Bottom row: chunky mint green bead necklace via Beads to Your Heart, kitchen with retro Chambers C model stove from Holly Doodle Designs, vintage seafoam green Westclox alarm clock from Kaboodle, French seafoam green millinery flowers also via Holly Doodle Designs

Some ideas for a 60s-inspired event:

  • Create “Will you be my bridesmaid?” cards out of Twiggy paper dolls (printable ones can be found here)
  • Set up an old-fashioned soda fountain instead of dessert or cake
  • Make favors from your favorite 60s music out of these CDs created to look like records (you can find all varieties of CD sleeves here)
  • Wear gloves and a single strand of pearls
  • Make your getaway card a classic Camaro or Mustang

  1. Hi Ami! Such pretty soft colors–I love this for a fresh take on the holiday wedding thing even. And, I’m so embarassed that it was your actual vow renewals that I didn’t have source for. Thanks for letting me know, and it was SO gorgeous!!!!

  2. I’ve been collecting Jadite for 15 years and whenever I see seafoam or “jadite” green I simply go MUSHY! I just love everything about the color… thanks for putting such a gorgeous board together!

    Have you seen anything seafoam green with navy or bay blue? I have an images of those together (with maybe a khaki) for my wedding, but can’t find anything! I’d really appreciate a push in the right direction. Thanks

    I love these color! I am interested in finding a wedding gown in a light mint or seafoam. I have searched the net, any suggestions?

    @andrese my guess is that your best bet is trying to find a retro 70s bridesmaid dress to convert – check vintage shops, etsy, and ebay and good luck!
