It’s always fun to read your horoscope, whether or not you really believe the words written down on the page. Even if you don’t buy in to every aspect of astrology, you can’t deny that when it comes to the stars, and our star signs aligning with certain personality traits – it rings true more often than not!
Along with expert astrologist Susan Miller of AstrologyZone.com, we take a look at how you could plan a dream wedding according to your star sign – and what the big day might look like for you!
ARIES (March 21 to April 20)
Common traits: vivacious, adventurous, pioneering, and confident
A totally original occasion
If you’re an Aries, we can guarantee that your wedding will be as beautifully unique as your wild wandering soul. Planning using pinterest? Nope. Back-to-back bridal mag reading sessions? Absolutely not. If it’s been done for a wedding before, you’re probably not interested in copying it for your big day. Susan Miller explained to marthastewartweddings.com that Aries are extremely creative and want something different”. You’ll choose a venue that no-one has used for a wedding before in your area, like the local library or a friend’s art studio. Your dress will be daring, different, an probably a little dramatic – you’re going to steal the show! A sit down three-course dinner will be a thing of the past at your party. Guests will enjoy some of your favourite foods instead – whether that’s sushi as a starter or pie and mash for the main!
TAURUS (April 21 to May 21)
Common traits: romantic, reliable, patient, and persistent
A classic affair
Your dream wedding is the stuff of fairytales. The gorgeous white dress, the traditional tiered cake, the emotional first dance to the song that means most to you and your husband as the sun goes down. You may be a devil about the details, but everyone will love planning your wedding with you. The bridesmaids will look just as you wanted on the day, but you’ll make sure that they love their dresses and feel comfortable before. You might get a wedding planner, or an organized friend or family member to help you plan the whole occasion. But only so that you can focus on the sweet, personal touches, like hand drawn place cards for your guests or a special gift for your hubby to open before he sees you on the day!
GEMINI (May 22 to June 21)
Common traits: energetic, versatile, youthful, and lively
The all-night nuptials
Get ready for the party of the year! Your wedding will be as much about the celebration as the ceremony itself. The band and the DJ for the evening will be two of your first choices, along with picking the perfect venue big enough to hold all of your guests! A beautifully lit barn would suit your celebrations perfectly, along with plenty of Polaroid cameras and a photo-booth to document all the night’s adventures. And the dress? Well something you can dance in of course!
CANCER (June 22 to July 22)
Common traits: intuitive and imaginative but cautious
A traditional wedding – with a twist!
You can imagine nothing more perfect than saying your vows to your true love, in front of all your close friends and family – whilst stunning in a classic white wedding gown of course! You may not be able to fit everyone you want at your wedding into the church for your ceremony, but you’ll make sure to have a big reception so no one has to get left off the list. Little creative twists are what will make your wedding day unique to you. Like special cocktails you’ll have created inspired by you and your partner, or your mum’s favourite flower nestled into your bouquet.
LEO (July 23 to August 21)
Common traits: creative, enthusiastic, and broad-minded
A family affair
While you may want to have a say in every part of your wedding, you certainly won’t want to be doing it all on your own! A wedding planner is all well good, but whether you have one or not, your whole family will be involved in the planning of your wedding too! Everyone is here to lend a hand, so try not to stress about the amount of preparation needed. To get everyone you need and want there on the big day, you’ll probably pic a large country house or a huge marquee for your reception. You’ll get a top photographer to take pictures you’ll cherish forever of your big day. And don’t forget, you and your dress will be the centrepiece for these pics – so make sure you choose one that you absolutely adore!
VIRGO (August 22 to September 23)
Common traits: modest, practical, and reliable
Your wedding might not be the grandest affair, but wow won’t it be beautiful! A chic dress, free from frills and extravagant embellishment, will be enough for you to stand out, along with a simple bouquet of your favourite flowers. You don’t need an expensive venue to celebrate your union either. You may throw the reception in yours or your parent’s back yard, or perhaps on the roof of your favourite bar or in a lovely local pub garden. You’re likely to know someone who is an excellent baker (you attract creative types) so they’ll hand make your wedding cake – which will taste divine!
LIBRA (September 24 to October 23)
Common traits: diplomatic, urbane, and easy-going
Simple yet oh-so-chic, your wedding will be so effortlessly trendy that you could hand the wedding photos on the wall of an art gallery – if you pick the right photographer! We know you’ll probably be more than happy to go with the flow when it comes to planning your wedding (you’re a Libra after all!) but don’t leave some of the important decisions until it’s too late. You’re probably more excited about planning the honeymoon than the post-ceremony party, but once you’ve had a few glasses of prosecco you know you’ll want to have a good dance. Make sure you get a DJ whose love of the latest hits matches yours – and don’t let too many of your bridesmaids take charge of the playlist!
SCORPIO (October 24 to November 22)
Common traits: powerful, exciting, and magnetic
A vision of loveliness
You don’t really need any advice on how to plan a dream wedding, as you’ve got it all covered! Susan Miller explains, “A Scorpio knows exactly what she wants and needs to control every element to make it perfect.” This goes for your dress, the amazing venue surrounded by stunning scenery, the instagram-worthy food – everything. There’s no better person to plan this wedding than you!
SAGITTARIUS (November 23 to December 22)
Common traits: freedom-loving, intellectual, and straightforward, like to be comfortable
A far-flung affair
Your dream wedding would probably be somewhere tropical, with a floaty gown and saying your vows barefoot on the beach! When you plan a dream wedding, the setting (and the sunset) will be priorities. Choosing a destination wedding might mean that you can’t bring every friend or extended family member along for the ride, but that’s ok. Everyone you love will be there to watch you exchange vows as the sun sets.
CAPRICORN (December 23 to January 20)
Common traits: practical, ambitious, and disciplined
A big do for the big day!
As a Capricorn, you’ll have your sights set on your big dream wedding. Think perfect venue, incredible traditional tiered cake, and the white wedding dress of your dreams! The guys and your groom will all look smart in tailored suits, and will each outshine each-other when it comes to the speeches, and you’ll get a fantastic live band in to make sure everyone has a great time! But you won’t get carried away, you’ll plan a dream wedding so it will run perfectly smoothly, and you although you’ve may have been saving carefully for the occasion, you’ll set yourself a budget, and stick to it.
AQUARIUS (January 21 to February 19)
Common traits: original, independent, and intellectual
The quirky wedding wonder
Just as your friends begin to tire of ‘wedding season’ the handmade invitation to your big day is posted through their door. Everyone will be excited for your wedding, as they know you’ll think outside the box for everything from the little independent boutique where you found your dress abroad, to the handmade table centrepieces detailing yours and your partner’s favourite books. Your likely to choose an unusual wedding venue, and nobody will expect to see the bridesmaids all wearing the same thing – this is a wedding party pumped full of individual personality.
PISCES (February 20 to March 20)
Common traits: imaginative, intuitive, and compassionate
A night to remember
Here’s a sign that is going to want to document her incredible wedding. From a professional photographer, to a wedding video, plus all the snaps her friends and family take on the day! You’re likely to choose a truly incredible setting for your sentimental and special ceremony. Miller explains why, “a Pisces thinks of her wedding as a movie and chooses what would impart the beauty of the setting and the meaning of the love that they share.” Have friends or family do some readings or sing during the ceremony to incorporate them in a special way into the big day.
