How to decorate your wedding according to your star sign

Here’s how you should style your wedding, according to your star sign

Planning a wedding can be one of the most stressful things a couple has to deal with. To help alleviate some of the headache that goes along with trying to plan post-pandemic weddings (or those that have already been planned, scuppered and planned again), party decorations experts Ginger Ray has teamed up with the A-list Astrologer Lisa Stardust, to reveal the best way to decorate a wedding, based on the twelve star signs. Now, the only challenge remaining will be deciding which partner’s star sign suggestions to follow!

Whether you’re an avid horoscope reader, or are just plain curious, here’s how Lisa recommends you should style up your big day…

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Wedding theme: Bohemian
Colour scheme: Tie dye

Lisa says: “Aquarians are free spirits who march to the beat of their own drum. Think of Aquarians as the laid back modern day bohemians of the zodiac. They will choose a bright coloured slip dress in lush fabrics, wear a crown of daisies in their hair, and opt to go barefoot to their wedding. Vibrant hues and tie dye is ideal for the air sign’s cool wedding decor. Anything goes as long as it brings positive vibes.”

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Wedding theme: Fairytale
Colour scheme: Seafoam tones

Lisa says: “Pisces are dreamers by nature, which is why they adore fairy tale weddings. Think lace wedding dresses with feather or rhinestone accents. As for the decor, they will choose anything that is ethereal and lush. An upscale beach wedding is ideal for them, because they are the fishes of the zodiac and always yearn to be near the sea. Blues and green accent colours are perfect for Pisces as it reminds them of the ocean.”

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Wedding theme: Classic
Colour scheme: White and red

Lisa says: “Aries are known for their passionate nature, which is why they’ll go for a starch white wedding dress colour with red flowers and decor to showcase their desirable nature. They won’t be afraid of holding back on the decorations, due to their need to always be the best at everything — this includes having a stellar wedding. They’ll have a sporty vibe to their big day and encourage their guests to bring their dancing sneakers.”

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Wedding theme: Botanical
Colour scheme: Antique white and champagne

Lisa says: “Being that Tauruses are so connected with earth and its bounty, they will prefer a botanical wedding that surrounds them with nature, flowers, grassy knolls, and open skies. They’ll opt for an antique white colour scheme to match the abundant flowers and flowing champagne. Moss vines and simple twinkling lights for the evening are a must for a Taurus wedding. Please note: the decor will be second to the food and music because they’re indulgent.”

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Wedding theme: Light and bright
Colour scheme: All-white

Lisa says: “Little known secret: the mutable sign Gemini likes to set a light and airy vibe because they have to have every aspect of their party in their peripheral. This means that they’ll choose an open venue surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows (the sunset is the ideal backdrop for their wedding) with light flowers that blend with their all white colour scheme (they may even add a touch of light grey to offset the crisp white vibe).”

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Wedding theme: Vintage glam
Colour scheme: Millennial pink

Lisa says: “Cancer’s dream since early childhood has been to have the perfect wedding. Therefore, the crab will choose to channel their inner glam vibes and have an old fashioned, vintage look (think 1920s) with champagne flutes, ice sculptures, and top hats. They’ll choose a light pink colour theme that matches the faux fur wrap they will wear around the shoulders to keep them warm (as they usually go for strapless dresses to accentuate their beautiful decolletage and pincers).”

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Wedding theme: Glitzy
Colour scheme: Golds and metallics

Lisa says: “Leos love to make an entrance. Think big flowing dresses with sequins sporadically spread all over for effect with a plunging back or neckline. Although they won’t veer from traditional colours for dresses, they’ll choose glitzy gold or silver with over the top accents like big bright flowers as decor to surround their fabulousness. After all, they are the regal sign of the zodiac which is why their wedding colour scheme will showcase their awesomeness.“

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Wedding theme: Minimalistic
Colour scheme: Unfussy pastels

Lisa says: “Virgos like effortlessly cool weddings. They want to make it seem like they didn’t put in a lot of fuss, when in fact the detailed oriented astrological sign is puppeteering the whole event. Less is more for a Virgo wedding. Therefore, they’ll opt for a simple wedding dress in a soft pastel colour (not classic white) and modern venue. Also, they will opt for a softer colour palette to offset the chic and pristine atmosphere.”

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Wedding theme: Rustic
Colour scheme: Soft peachy tones

Lisa says: “A rustic vineyard wedding that seats everyone outdoors on a communal table with free-flowing wine, great conversation, amazing food, and classical music playing in the background is the perfect wedding for Libra who always likes to live the good life. All the more reason why they’ll prefer bright peach or pink satin accents everywhere. As long as the flow of the wedding allows their guests to interact, the social air sign will be happy.”

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Wedding theme: Spooky season
Colour scheme: Autumnal hues

Lisa says: “Scorpio season occurs at the same time as Halloween, so they will be drawn to a spookier affair. This means that they could very well choose to wear a black wedding dress and have wine coloured accents at the event with pumpkins, rich autumnal colours, and savory sweets. They would also love to have Halloween themed cocktails at the open bar and cool gothic accents at every table like black table napkins or purple tulips.”

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Wedding theme: W’oliday!
Colour scheme: Gold and lavender

Lisa says: “The archers are known for their adventurous and outgoing nature, which is why they’ll throw a huge party in a foreign place. As for the decor, you can expect them to mix and match eclectic styles together. They’ll throw prints with gold and lavender accents together (the colours which are associated with the fiery zodiac sign) in luxurious fabrics like silk or velvet. All of this will play second fiddle to the actual party itself.”

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Wedding theme: Intimate
Colour scheme: Forest green or navy blue

Lisa says: “Being that Capricorn is the first sign of the winter season, they will totally love having an intimate wedding surrounded by a small group of friends and family while it’s snowing outside. Their theme will be winter wonderland chic with white Christmas lights twinkling in their minimally decorated room with evergreen, navy blue, or black and white accents (any classic colour is perfect for Capricorn because they are known to be a traditional zodiac sign).”
