Silver & Teal Wedding Ideas

A typical Western wedding tradition is choosing two colours as the wedding decorating scheme (royal blue and silver, lavender and pearl, black and white, and so on). Two popular wedding colour choices are silver and teal.
If you're an engaged couple planning your wedding and are wishing to incorporate these two colours into your design theme, you have numerous ways to express yourself.
Incorporate silver and teal into your wedding gown design. You could choose a silver and teal sash for tying around your waist, or perhaps you could add silver beads to your headpiece and veil. Teal is a shade of blue, so your "something blue" tradition could be a teal garter or a teal and silver charm sewn inside your dress or onto your shoes.
Utilise silver and teal ribbons in your wedding flowers, including the bride's bouquet. After the wedding ceremony, use the bridesmaids' bouquets as head-table decorations. One wedding favour idea is giving each guest a white rose tied with silver and teal ribbon (placed at each place setting). Also, use silver vases for displaying floral bouquets at your ceremony and reception locations.

Choose candies (such as M&Ms) that come in customised colours (a grey hue to represent silver and turquoise to represent teal), then place the candies in silver favour bags at each place setting. Hershey's Kisses are wrapped in silver; scatter some of these chocolates on each reception table. If you and your betrothed enjoy books, create a favour bookmark in silver and teal ink for each guest.
