To Infinity & Beyond: Celestial Themed Wedding!
The romantics of the world say that true love is written in the stars. The evening sky has helped to spark many of the great love stories, so it is no wonder more couples are gravitating to holding a celestial themed wedding. Here are some tips on how to execute your own “Starry” wedding day……
Inspiration can start by simply looking up at the sky… dark shades of blue are dotted by twinkling stars with the soft white glow of the moon. Mixed metallics of gold & silver, blue, black and white pair well with a celestial design but don’t be afraid to venture out with accent colors like fuchsia and deep reds.
2. Pen & Paper
Use a whimsical, metallic font on your stationery to reflect your out-of-this-world wedding. Adorn the edges with a subtle star border or go lunar with the phases of the moon and a silver lined envelope. As an alternative to a guest book arrange a star map based on the date and location of your wedding. For a fun twist, skip the traditional photo booth and opt for a vintage moon backdrop with a dreamy saying, “I Love You to the Moon & Back.”
3. Location, Location, Location
Outdoor venues will create a natural blanket of stars but if your wedding is indoors there are a few ways to create a dazzling atmosphere. Combine string lights, draped fabric and sparkling stars for a romantic setting. Morovian star pendants can be hung above, select different sizes for an interesting touch. Star or moon garland can be lined vertically for a statement backdrop. For less literal look suspend gold painted branches from the ceiling with hanging globes and tea lights.
A midnight blue velvet table linen provides a rich base for glowing centerpieces. Accents to consider include galactic inspired chargers, gold or silver brushed flatware and sparkling glassware. Finish the look with lucite ghost chairs or two toned gold chameleon chairs.
5. Wedding Trousseau
Wedding gown designers are also looking skyward. Gowns are featuring star embellishments, ethereal tulle, metallic embroidered fabric, geometric and constellation prints. Crystal head pieces, starry head bands and pins add a glamorous finish to keep your head in the clouds.
