For a love story that was “written in the stars,” wouldn’t a constellation theme be a heavenly choice for a winter wedding? Just picture an elegant palette of midnight blue, highlighted with gold accents and sparkling starry touches everywhere! This celestial trend—also called “starry night” or “galaxy”—is quite the rage for modern weddings, while still infusing the occasion with an air of sophistication and romance. You’ll see what we mean with these inspiring finds for styling your own nuptials with a constellation theme!
Celestial Elements for Styling a Constellation-themed Wedding
Set your wedding’s starry course with trendy wedding invitation (1) mapping out the constellations in the night sky. Sure to wow your guests!
Bring that same heavenly effect to your reception venue with a romantic tent (2) overlooking a lake on a starry winter night! Think of dazzling decorations—from glowing hanging lanterns in the shape of stars and crescent moons (6) to a gorgeous table setting all a-shimmer with deep blue sequins, gold flatware and matching goblets (8)! And to guide guests to their seats, display a string art seating chart (5) simulating the look of tracing star patterns.
Even the edibles must be equally celestial. Start with a personalized frame bearing a message of “our love is cosmic” (7) coupled with hanging faerie lights in the backdrop. A great option for decorating your dessert table. Have your wedding cake (4) designed to match the theme, in elegant midnight blue marbled with clouds and studded with stars, including super thin taper candles that can be lit up when it’s time to cut the cake.
For your signature drink (3) serve sparkling champagne garnished with frozen blueberries or purple grapes. And for favors, give gift tins of pretzel rods dipped in blue candy melts and dusted with gold sprinkles (9). So simple, but starry just the same!
