A celestial wedding theme is predicted to be one of the hottest trends of 2018 – you may have spotted it mentioned on our recent trend report here. And quite frankly, we’re feeling rather starry-eyed over the thought of this magical theme. It’s the perfect fit for a Winter wedding and it’s also a great alternative to traditional Winter colour palettes. So, let’s get stuck in and discover how you can pull off this magical theme for your very own celebrations…
If you want a day that is out of this world, a celestial theme wedding theme will be an amazing choice. We recommend giving your guests a clue about what’s around the corner by giving your stationery a subtle celestial vibe. Opt for splashes of deep blue, stormy grey and iridescent details – we also say to our couples to keep the same design throughout the whole day to tie your theme in together.
Add an astronomical effect to your aisle style by rocking a gown adorned with sequins – if you’re feeling brave you could even opt for a mesmerising blue or silver gown. If you do want to stick to something a little more traditional, you could alter your wedding dress by having a few star appliqués sewn in. On the other hand, a headband bejewelled with starry elements will also look incredible, you’ll find lots of divine choices over on Naturae Design. Your team of ‘maids will look just gorgeous wearing a blue or silver colour palette, why not ask them to wrap up warm with a sequin jacket?
We can’t get enough of statement backdrops at weddings and not only are they a great way to inject your personality into your venue, they look undeniably cool for your photographs too. A solar-inspired backdrop or half-moon will look striking in your ceremony space and your guests will certainly be in awe of it. You could make mini half-moon escort cards for your place settings to help keep your wedding theme looking coordinated.
There are lots of romantic quotes out there that are just a magical fit for this celestial wedding theme. For instance, you could ask a calligrapher to handwrite ‘I love you to the moon and back’ on a blue backdrop. If you’re feeling really daring, you could even use it as part of your home décor after the big day!
As you can see, we’ve focussed mainly on a colour palette consisting of midnight blue with splashes of silver and stormy grey. But you can easily add in any colour that takes your fancy, from dusty lilac to modern gold hues – make it work for you!
We have to admit, we are feeling pretty star-struck with a celestial wedding theme and we hope you are too!
