Written In The Stars

We all feel as though our love is written in the stars, so why not bring some of that celestial vibe into your décor?

Not only is this theme romantic and totally on-trend, it’s also ideal if you have a shared passion for astrology or star-gazing. Here’s how you can add some personality into your wedding day.

Fashion

It’s an alternative to lace and florals that’s every bit as romantic.

It’s all about the embellished details with these looks, from sparkling capes to 3D stars.

The sheer trend works incredibly well here, as it allows those finishing touches to shine even brighter.

Accessories

Ever a nod to tradition, we’re bewitched by the poetic play of celestial inspired veils.

For full length veils, leave unpinned and left to fall in a finely textural, white on white cascade.

For shorter veils, or those hung higher at the front so as to only cover the face,  keep the attachment close  to invisible while making sure the beautiful work of detail is kept in view and on display.

Light It Up

Draped lights along the walls and ceiling, can totally transform any and every venue. Lights along the roof or through trees at an outdoor wedding, give the allusion of a starry sky at night.

We love this look!

Galactic Table Décor

Sprinkle a few geometric star terrariums along reception tables, mixing some greenery and rich toned flowers for an added touch of night-sky charm.

Even the placement of metallic plates and cutlery can create a half-moon and lunar eclipse look.

Stationery

Getting your wedding stationery right is the perfect way to ensure the big day is a stylish event from the start.

Designs can range from bright and bold constellations, to more rich and romantic patterns, all of which are given that extra sparkle from metallic calligraphy or foil.
