The stars have aligned; you’re marrying the love of your life. What’s the best way to show the world that you have found your destiny? A beautiful celestial-themed wedding, of course! Sky is literally the limit for this trend because you have the whole universe as your inspiration. It also helps that you have a knowledgeable wedding planner to guide you. No need to wish upon a star for the perfect day, the secret is in the details. We have listed down the prime elements that will surely make your momentous day exceptionally exquisite and truly magical.
Mesmerize your guests with a simple yet elegant invite that will give them a sneak peek of your motif. You can play with distinct hues like midnight blue, black, and silver for a sophisticated look or add in a touch of color for a fun and cosmic feel. You may also apply this to your RSVP cards and save-the-dates.
Make sure the entourage is on-theme by integrating some astral vibe to their outfit. No need to go over-the-top with this, as you would want to avoid a campy and overdone feel to the attire. Simple accents may help, like sparkly hair accessories, boutonniere or tie. As the bride, you would also want to add a dash of galaxy glam to your look, like sparkly shoes, a tiara, or jewelry.
Magical Mood and Delightful Decors
Of course, you’d want your guests to have the complete celestial experience. Achieve this by setting the right mood through lighting, music, and decors. A nighttime celebration would be ideal, with soft illumination and soothing sounds. Accentuate with stunning star lanterns, mildly scented candles, dreamy centerpieces, and whimsical styling that will transform an ordinary space to a romantic and dreamlike venue.
Unleash the deity in you with the right look. Go for a barely-there makeup — feminine yet sexy. Choose shades of peach, gold, and bronze that will give you an ethereal and divine aura. Don’t forget to highlight your eyes with a bit of glitter, lips with a touch of color, and your cheeks with a sweep of blush. Lastly, don’t forget to wear your beautiful smile. Let your inner glow shine through.
Foods that are too beautiful to eat? Check. Get creative with what you will serve in your reception — drinks, desserts, and even your wedding cake! Allot a buffet table where guests can indulge in sweet and celestial treats. Provide galaxy-themed drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. The ways to execute this are practically limitless. This is also one wedding element adults and children will definitely enjoy.
Cap off your magical event with favors your guests will surely treasure. Constellation-printed bags, a jar of star-shaped cookies, personalized coasters, and even a bottle of stardust — the selection is endless. This doesn’t need to be expensive, just scout for the best one that will suit your theme and budget. You can also get down and dirty by taking the DIY route.
All successful events require careful planning and being loyal to the theme. Having a concrete vision of how you want your celestial wedding to unfold makes all the difference. Stick to the plan and keep the process uncomplicated. Research for more inspiration and don’t be shy to ask for other people’s opinion. Lastly and most importantly, have fun.
