Stellar tips for an astrology lover's wedding

Do you frequently find yourself flipping to the back pages of your favorite newspaper or magazine to check your daily horoscope? Do you regularly check if mercury is in retrograde if you're having a bad day? With the help of social media influencers, 2017 has been a year for astrology lovers, making things like birth charts and star signs trending topics. If you’re certain that following what the stars say about your life is the right way to go – or even just a little bit curious – IES has you covered with everything you need to know to incorporate astrology into your wedding.

Search the Stars for Your Theme

While your star sign may mean everything – or absolutely nothing – to you, rumor has it whether you’re an Aries or a Scorpio  - or anything in between - can say a lot about your personality. One way to incorporate these major personality traits into your wedding is through the theme and style of your wedding. For example, if you’re a true Aries with an adventurous spirit, consider fulfilling your love for adventure with a non-traditional wedding. Consider theming your wedding around travel – or a particular adventure you and your loved one have in common – or pick an exotic destination.

If you’d rather show your guests your love for all things astrology, consider theming your wedding around the solar system, complete with constellations and all sorts of glitter. If you and your fiancé are truly a match made in heaven, show that off with a theme that celebrates the sun, moon, stars, and planets.

Out of This World Décor

For science-lovers, an astrology themed wedding gives you the opportunity to recreate something close to your third-grade science fair. Think bright colors and a lot of 3D mobiles. However, chances are you want something a little more refined for your special day.

Use metallic elements, muted colors, maps and constellations to create a soothing, astrology themed aesthetic. Add in some geodes with your table settings to bring your out of this world décor back down to Earth. If you can’t literally get married under the stars, you can opt to hang small, twinkly lights from the ceiling of your venue to replicate the night sky. Another option for astrology themed decor would be to include all of your guests’ star signs – which would require a little bit of Facebook stalking to find out their birthdays – on their table settings.

Astronomical Dining

Want to incorporate your love for astrology into even more aspects of your wedding day? Consider a star or geode themed cake! Another dessert option would be to arrange macarons that have been colored to look like planets, moons, or stars in circles or constellation shapes. Classy dessert options like these let your guests take a literal bite out of your wedding theme and are sure to be delicious.

Whether you’re an avid horoscope reader or just a fan of stargazing, picking an astrology themed wedding is the perfect way to stay on trend and make sure your special day is truly out of this world.
