There is literally no other social event in the life of a bride that will be as vital (or observed!) as a wedding. When it comes to tying the knot every woman has a different vision of their "ideal" day, each bringing their own set of aesthetics into the occasion.
But can the ancient art (or science, depending on whom you are talking to) of astrology provide some helpful cues? Yes, absolutely. In the spirit of ‘suggestions only’, astro-adviser Mystic Medusa shares wedding style suitably based on your Zodiac sign.
Aries is the sign of the Zodiac most likely to crave a high velocity, memorable moment wedding. Suitably for the most action-oriented sign of the Zodiac, Aries relishes the red sports car drama arrival, the insanely on point and choreographed bridesmaids and most ‘now’ music. They have a short patience span so it won’t go on and on.
Every Taurus is an Earth Mother Goddess at heart and the ideal Taurus wedding involves nature, flower wreaths, trees, animals (A lamb? Some puppies?) and medieval style musicians. A truly Taurus wedding should look like it could easily have taken place in the middle ages and involve an actual banquet.
Geminis think everyone else is like them and will be bored if the wedding festivities go on too long so they tend to schedule untold surprises for their guests. They are also the sign most likely to live stream the event and/or employ high tech or have a wedding featuring drones, à la the Lady Gaga Super Bowl performance.
This sign takes the concept of ‘family’ and even ancestors very seriously. A Cancerian wedding could well involve the entire clan and take place in some sort of ancestral homeland or with a very strong (and moving) gesture toward those who have gone before. They like sentimental speeches that pull on the heartstrings and are most likely to have child ring-bearers, performers and members of the retinue.
The classic Leo sees everyday life as a performance art so when it comes to an actual occasion, she pulls out all stops. There will be the most august church in town hired (to signify God’s approval of the Leo union) and the most glamorous vicar or celebrant possible. The speeches will feature moving filmed-montages of the couple’s lives and narrative. Non-glam friends could find their roles limited.
Virgo is another Earth sign like Taurus but there is no way that they will risk dirt, animals or any sort of a bucolic setting messing with their big day. Virgos are (in the nicest possible way) control freaks and their ideal big day consists of a chic venue, staff with headsets, on-trend cuisine and precision arrangements. The Virgo wedding will be composed with utter perfection.
This is the sign of the Zodiac most likely to love goo-goo weddings complete with every single traditional trapping possible. You cannot have too many white doves, pink heart place settings, violinists, intricate lace and classic roses for our Libra. Scent and flowers are of particular importance to Libra and the more archetypal, the better – rose, jasmine, tuberose and the like. Nothingengineered.
Scorpio is the sign most likely to go deep with their wedding day – fittingly for this most profound sign of the galaxy. Scorpios live on constant cycles of rebirth and transformation; the profound quotes, speeches, themes and venue will reflect the seriousness with which they take any commitment. Possibilities; tribally relevant ceremonies, a remote legacy church on a wind-swept island, true confidantes and loyal supporters the only guests.
Here we see the most athletic and outdoors loving sign of the Zodiac in loved up marriage mode. No soul mating, no matter how magical, is going to interfere with their baseline temperament of being fun, loving and energetic. Who can sit down for too long? Not Sagittarius. This is the bride most likely to arrive by hang-glider, have fireworks and/or hire the most crazy-intense dance band.
Polished and professional, Capricorn brings an intense focus to any event, let alone a wedding. This is the sign least likely to be sentimental about bridesmaid or guest choices and most likely to prep for the big day as if planning the conquest of an entire continent. Capricorn is always aware of time and that is occasion will live on forever as a documented record of not just love but commitment and meaning.
Aquarius is the least traditional of all the Zodiac signs and frankly, the bride most likely to elope to far away destination and/or pull off a wedding at warp speed, with very little notice. If the Aquarius does decide to do full bore planning, it will be food, music and a venue unlike that of anyone else. It may seem weird at the time but years later, people look back and realize just how far Aquarius was ahead of the Zeitgeist.
Pisces live lives that are half extremely worldly and pragmatic – half magical thinking. When they are in love, it’s the enchanted aspect of their nature that is most prevalent. The Pisces bride wants a ceremony that reflects the fate or mystical synchronicity that she feels bought her and her groom together, to be in a venue with perfect Feng Shui and with preferably a lakeside or an ocean view.
