Sometimes, upon an engagement, a couple knows the details of their ideal wedding immediately – some have been mulling over this day for the better portion of their lives. However, there are many who enter into the planning process with little to no idea on how they’d like to design their nuptials. While it can seem overwhelming, this instance allows for a much more flexible and open-minded experience in organizing the big day.
If you feel lost and are looking for some guidance, what’s the harm in looking to your astrological sign for some help? We’ve broken down every sign to explain how the weddings of each one might play out, according to the traditional attributes of each zodiac symbol. Perhaps you and your significant other can strike a balance between your respective signs to create your idyllic ceremony!
Aries (March 21-April 19)
A passionate Aries can do anything once they set their mind to it. When it comes to wedding planning, you’ll stick to your gut – and sometimes, that means your decisions will be spontaneous. You may be throwing in extra details right up until your “I dos,” but with your insightful nature, they’ll all come together beautifully. We predict the general motif of your wedding will encompass an “organized chaos” concept, including eclectic flower arrangements, very mismatched bridesmaid dresses, and a bold color scheme.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Practicality will rule the wedding of a Taurus. You can be quite stubborn, which can actually prove very effective in the wedding-planning process. You know what you want when you see it, and wedding professionals will sense and appreciate it. Of course, you’re also patient, so you will listen to the opinions of vendors and factor them into your highly formulated requirements. This wedding will be of the best quality, no matter what the overall design is, because Taurus demand excellence – top-notch service, culinary options, and entertainment will be a priority.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Geminis can often be hard to predict, due to their famous duality of nature. However, there is no doubt that your approach to wedding planning will be incredibly creative. Because your motivation comes from within, you’ll often take on much of the organizing yourself, which won’t be difficult with your immense amount of charisma. Your open and supportive personality will lend itself to a touching ceremony and a celebration filled with warmth. You may choose to host a more intimate day with just close family and friends – sentimental touches go a long way with you.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
A Cancer bride or groom stays true to their roots. You have a fascination with history – whether that of your own family or otherwise – so you’ll likely be looking to host a wedding steeped in tradition. Being a more private person, you may desire a smaller guest list at a venue that exudes vintage flair. This wedding will likely have touches that call back to a bygone era, whether that be the 1970s, ‘40s, ‘20s, or even the Victorian Age. There might also be elements that honor your personal past, such as a piece of your mother’s wedding dress sewn onto your own and pictures of relatives surrounding the reception.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Leos are born leaders – a fact of which they are acutely aware. Going into the planning process, you’ll envision something on the grander side, whether it be a glitzy city wedding or a beautiful, scenic event on the top of a mountain. You will take charge of planning with fervor, so you’ll likely be highly organized and have many of the decisions made quite early. Your big day will surely incorporate a huge party for your family and friends – and chances are, you won’t be cutting too many people from the guest list!
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Cooperative Virgos work incredibly well with others – not a bad trait to have when planning nuptials. You may be organizing a more rustic or boho-chic event due to your love of nature. We see an outdoor ceremony and/or reception in your future! You’ll be very keen to current trends when selecting the details of your special day and you’ll be quick to personalize any and all elements that you possibly can. Everything about your “I dos” will have a sweet, homey undertone, creating a lovely warmth throughout every event of your wedding.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
With Libras, everything is a balancing act. You’re seeking an idyllic harmony for your big day – you will design a concept that draws in a few select motifs and blends them seamlessly together for a cohesive celebration. Whether it be combining a traditional white wedding with small, deliberate touches of verdant greenery, or seaside nuptials that bring in elements of glam with mirror-top details, you’ll be able to marry complementary elements and your future spouse at the same time!
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Though Scorpios are notoriously secretive, they can come alive when coordinating their vows. You’re an incredibly cunning and creative person – we’d be willing to bet that your Hogwarts house is Slytherin – so the logistical side of planning a wedding will be a breeze for you. Though, if the process does feel a little overwhelming, you won’t have a problem with organizing an incredibly beautiful and meaningful elopement with your significant other. You are a fan of subtle, subdued elegance, and that is what you’re going to get!
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
A Sagittarius getting married is quite the force to be reckoned with. Your intensity will assist your planning efforts, as you’ll be able to use your laser-focus personality to get everything done. Due to your nomadic mindset, a destination wedding is likely something you’ve been considering – and we say: go for it! You’re a spontaneous soul with a knack for adventure, so why not create that kind of atmosphere for your special day? It will definitely be an experience that you and your guests will never forget!
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
The phrase “mind over matter” comes to mind when thinking about Capricorns. Your intellect will be your strength as you navigate the planning process. You’re more on the traditional side, so you may be seeking an opulent, formal affair that wows attendees to no end. With great structure comes great responsibility, and you’ll be able to handle the challenges that come with organizing your high-end affair. Be sure to create a little whimsical, Cinderella-esque magic for yourself and your beloved on this day!
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
The artistic Aquarius will use their unique set of skills to their advantage during their engagement. You go about organizing your life in your own special way, so the wedding that you plan will absolutely reflect this trait. Though you have no problem with current trends, you will try and make each detail selection as unique and “true to you” as possible. We predict that you’ll end up hosting a beautiful bohemian day, focusing on your love for your partner, your guests, and your sense of style.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Pisces brides and grooms fly under the radar, and their sweet dispositions will create sentimental vows. You live in a world of fantasy, and your first instinct when wedding planning will be to go for a whimsical motif. Nature will surely be involved in one way or another, whether you select an alfresco venue or incorporate an outdoor feeling into your indoor event. Friends and family will appreciate the fairy-tale touches throughout your ensemble and décor.
