The Celestial Wedding

The latest wedding theme trend

Couples are literally embracing the moon and stars for their wedding design in 2018. The celestial wedding trend is sure to impress your guests with its out of this world dreamy décor.

With this theme couples can opt for designs such as -the sun, moon and stars; and can incorporate themes such as astronomy and star gazing.

There are so many unique and beautiful ways to add a celestial vibe to your wedding. We especially love the use of moon phases and constellations in the wedding décor.

The celestial theme can work well in an industrial space or a countryside venue, so it is very versatile. The colour scheme usually centres around- dark midnight blue, charcoal grey or metallic shades. Choose one metallic colour for the highlights of the evening- silver, gold or copper.

Here are some wonderful ideas for a celestial themed wedding.

Celestial table décor

Go minimalist and simple with the table décor. Have charcoal and black coloured plates with gold plated cutlery. Place tea-light candles in tall candle holders with star shaped holes, so that the flames flicker like twinkling stars. For the flowers stick to green and grey foliage, and white flowers.

The Celestial cake

When it comes to the cake you can really be creative. Try gold leaf designs on dark blue icing or why not try the latest geode cake trend, that looks like it’s from out of space.

The Celestial Dress and Accessories

Every bride wants to sparkle on her wedding day, so of course the celestial wedding is the perfect excuse for a bit of glitter. Details from the shoes to the dress, and even the make-up can incorporate glittery elements.

The Celestial backdrop

Make sure to incorporate the celestial theme in your wedding ceremony backdrop. You could opt for a subtle backdrop of fairy lights and flowers or you could go to town with a moon and star film-set that guests can pose in and interact with.
