To Mint or Not to Mint!Wedding Mints… what can be said other than YUM! While wedding mints have been around for generations, they have proven to be more than just a trend and have gracefully withstood the test of time. Mints are truly an icon in the wedding world . While the look of the traditional cream cheese mint has changed in recent years from florals to hundreds of fun designs, brides are still embracing mints and adding their modern twists.
Traditional wedding mints are made in various shapes and flavors and are very inexpensive when you make them yourself. A simple splash of flavoring can transform the experience for the taster. The most common wedding mints are butter mints, cream cheese mints, butter cream mints and pastels. All of these mints are fairly easy to make and easily freezable for up to several months.
