Written in the Stars: the perfect wedding for your star sign
When it comes to organising your wedding you can be pulled in so many different directions, that it’s easy to lose sight of how you envisioned your big day. It’s common to become overwhelmed and doubt what style of nuptial best suits you.
So, instead why not put it in the hands of fate? Get the stars to light the way and offer some useful suggestions. Are you unsure if you would thrive in an extravagant event or would favour a simpler, intimate ceremony? Well your zodiac placement may be able to offer some guidance. We explore the perfect wedding ideas for each star sign.
Aries: A little party never killed nobody
Aries have a strong and energetic character that means they always lead with confidence. If you're born between March 21st and April 19, those around you know you are bold, outgoing and have the ambition to make every event as memorable as possible – so your wedding day should be no different.
“Fire signs, such as Aries, are totally unpredictable,” says psychic to the stars Inbaal Honigman. “They enjoy lots of attractions and activities, guests can expect the unexpected.”
With your passion and enthusiasm, you can cram your big day with fun and entertainment. If you haven’t already, you may want to consider a karaoke booth. Will your bridesmaid’s belt out Shania Twain or your new father-in-law perform his rendition of Michael Bublé? Either way, a sing-along wedding packed with music and activities will tick all the boxes for your dream celebration.
We recommend: A summer colour palette is perfect for an Aries’ big day.
Taurus: Not so secret sweet tooth
There is no hiding that a Taurus is the biggest foodie of all the zodiacs. So, of course, no wedding would be complete without a gratifying menu. To make your big day truly unforgettable, you’ll want to focus on the catering. A wedding that concentrates on good food will make you – and your stomach – cherish the event for years to come.
Hiring a regal castle venue and hosting a delicious, regal banquet will allow the meal to be the focus of your big day.
We recommend: Offer a variety of global cuisines and allow your guests’ taste buds to travel from Italy to India.
Gemini: Leave the traditions behind
As a Gemini, you’ll know the struggle of experiencing contradicting emotions and desires on a daily basis. Known for your multi-faceted personalities, a formal and conventional wedding may end up boring you and arousing a few yawns.
Think about organising a more casual day that is all about socialising and mingling with your partner and guests. Piñatas and balloons are the perfect way to decorate your venue. Make sure to make some space for dancing, so you can salsa, waltz or jive the night away with your loved ones.
We recommend: A photo booth can capture everyone involved in the celebration.
Cancer: Intimacy is key
Cancers are loyal, emotional and deeply attached to their fond memories. If you are born between June 21st and July 22nd, you will find that your family and closest friends mean the world to you.
As you start a new chapter you may want to share your feelings with just a handful of special attendees. Wedding can lay bare your sensitivity but the right company will make sure you have the wonderful day you deserve.
An elopement wedding could be an option that perfectly matches your personality. It can help you focus on the love and emptions of the moment. Ultimately, an intimate and elegant ceremony, as well as a shorter guest list, would be right up your straight.
We recommend: Writing your own vows can add a personal touch to your ceremony.
Leo: Star of the show
Leos have a warm, charming and confident personality and make excellent companions and friends. But you like to be the centre of attention and certainly will not shy away from an opportunity to be dramatic. Getting married is your chance to shine onstage.
You may want to encourage your attendees to follow a dress code and think outside the box when choosing from their wardrobe. By promoting a trendy attire, you will be able to throw a glamorous wedding party in which you – obviously – will be the star.
We recommend: Tying a theme to your evening, such as old Hollywood or The Great Gatsby, can add an extra touch of glamour.
Virgo: Timelessness and traditional
Is there any sign more accurate, precise and detail-focused than Virgos? You will do your best to prepare an event that is perfect in every way – and no doubt succeed.
But arranging original activities will earn you some attention, which is not your cup of tea. So, why not opt for a classic, traditional ceremony that suits your care and precision.
We recommend: Chocolate fountains and ice sculptures create a chic atmosphere.
Libra: Instagram ready
When it comes to aesthetics, Libras simply cannot resist a beautiful backdrop. For this reason, Ibaan explains, “an elegant wedding would be perfect for them.”
So your wedding location has to be pleasing to the eye. Why not consider celebrating in a foreign country and frame your unique moments on a crystal clear Greek beach or amidst the picturesque and romantic alleys of Venice?
We recommend: Libras love the outdoors, so an open space could be the perfect place for your big day.
Scorpio: Surprises around every corner
Scorpios have an unconventional nature, rich in mystery. How could your wedding be any different? You may want to host an unusual, off-the-beaten-track event, with plenty of surprises around every corner.
To enjoy a memorable day, you would probably want to choose your guests accordingly. In fact, privacy means a lot to Scorpios, and a small ceremony suits them just right.
From an intimate kiosk to a private, cosy venue, there are plenty of confined locations to choose from. Furthermore, low-lit candles and a dusky atmosphere can enhance the intimacy of your celebration for you, your partner, and the attendees.
We recommend: How will you surprise them? Perhaps a ‘spouse murder mystery’ may add a nuance to your unforgettable day.
Sagittarius: Defy convention
A Sagittarius has a thirst for adventure and new experiences. As the free spirit of the zodiac, you enjoy coming up with alternative solutions to conventional tasks and events.
Why should you marry at the feet of an altar? Exchanging rings in front of a brick wall with fairy lights and quirky, wood additions would be a creative twist to a millennial celebration.
We recommend: Why not kiss your spouse on another continent, whether in a rainforest or on a snowy peak?
Capricorn: Know your history
A smart, hard-working, and detail-oriented sign, Capricorns enjoy being intellectually stimulated – even on their wedding day. To satiate your interest in art and culture and spend special moments with your loved ones in inspiring settings, you may want to tie the knot in a historic castle or gothic church. A day that broadens your knowledge and fills your heart is the perfect way to make a memorable celebration.
We recommend: Add to the atmosphere by opting for the season that best exalts the location – a snowy palace is as dreamy and romantic as it gets.
Aquarius: Express yourself
You're eccentric, hard to please, like things done your own way, and enjoy questioning traditions. Why should you settle for a ceremony that doesn’t resonate with your personality? Why recite your vows and eat a meal in a standard environment?
Let your whimsical, artsy traits shine through on your wedding day. At first, you may want to stick to a more formal etiquette when inside the church, city hall, or on the beach. As you reach your reception venue, though, you could switch the vibe and allow attendees to express themselves in whatever fashion they wish.
We recommend: Pick a palette of numerous contrasting colours and allow for some flexibility.
Pisces: Carefree and dreamy vibe
Last but not least, Pisces have a soothing, gentle, and calming presence. You love being in contact with nature, as it makes you feel as if you are swimming in familiar waters.
A flowery garden would also be a fantastic pick. With an explosion of colours, smells, and natural sounds, getting married in the embrace of the planet will offer you a dreamy celebration to cherish for a very long time.
We recommend: With a carefree and green aura about you, why not opt for a ceremony in a rural location, far from the hustle and bustle of the city?
So, what are your plans for your big day? Weddings are special events that are likely to reside in your heart forever. Let the stars help you organise the perfect ceremony based on your sign. Information provided by the wedding team at Langley Castle Hotel.
