Jewellery brand Diamonds Factory, has spoken exclusively to celebrity psychic and astrologer Inbaal Honigman, who has shared her top tips on how to plan your wedding according to your zodiac.
Aries (March 21 - April 19) - Vibrant Colours
Aries, known for their fiery and youthful nature, embrace the vibrant energy of red. This intense hue symbolises their passion and dynamism. To capture their directness, a bow and arrow motif, reminiscent of Greek deity Eros, perfectly embodies Aries' spirit on their special day.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20) - Bohemian Style
Taurus craves comfort and luxury, making a barn wedding with wooden decor and indulgent treats like imported chocolate and port their ideal choice. While not particularly outdoorsy, Taurus adores nature's aesthetics, so incorporating natural elements like pebbles, pine cones, and a roaring fire can truly captivate their hearts.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20) - Cohesive Looks
Gemini, symbolised by twins, thrives on duality by incorporating pairs in the décor, such as two white lilies per table, two cake options, and two floral arches. Create a double experience by utilising both sides of the wedding space which mirrors Gemini's multifaceted personality beautifully.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22) - Celestial Theme
Cancer thrives on love and emotion which can be incorporated into their wedding through violins, roses, pink hues, and even white doves. The sign of Cancer is ruled by the moon, so lunar symbols such as crescents and full moons would suit the Cancer vibe. The moon is associated with the colour silver, so shimmery pale accents are a good call.
Leo (July 23 - August 22) - Golden Glam
Leo, known for their confident and bold nature, craves a wedding that's as grand as their personality. Create an atmosphere where everyone shines with ample selfie spots, photography gifts, karaoke, and a dazzling dance floor. As Leo is ruled by the Sun, it's worth incorporating the colour gold generously from bright table runners and chair ribbons to russet gold initials and golden floral hoops. Anything large and luminous screams Leo!
Virgo (August 23 - September 22) - Traditional Approach
Virgos crave order and symmetry, so prioritise neatly organised spaces and symmetrical seating arrangements to bring them joy on their wedding day. Virgos love to think of the little things, so tiny souvenirs on every plate would be expected. A sweetie area for the kids and a plant based BBQ for the vegetarians, Virgos want to make sure that they've thought of everything.
Libra (September 23 - October 22) - Soft Florals
Libra's one non-negotiable colour is white, because they adore elegance and fuss-free styling. As an Air sign, Libra resonates with elements like feathers and leaves. Consider using their favourite floral scent in the wedding flowers to capture the essence of Air.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21) - Romantic Goth
Scorpios love mystery, and they'll lean towards a darker aesthetic than the average Mr or Mrs. They aren't a sign that feels the need to follow traditions, so if they fancy a velvet throne or a leather-covered cake that's what they'll have. There will be no pastels at a Scorpio's wedding, purple and black is more likely. They love deeply and passionately, and want the intensity of the décor to reflect that, with candelabras in every corner and goblets for the wine.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21) - Tropical Touches
Sagittarius is the ultimate free spirit, who suits bold, bright, clashing colours and over-the-top visuals. They'll want pina coladas for the whole wedding party, floral necklaces, bright headdresses and a playlist from all corners of the world. The symbol of Sagittarius is the Archer, which is usually depicted as a Centaur bearing a bow and arrow. This is a half-man half-horse, so horseshoes would be a nice symbol for this wedding. Sagittarius is a generous sign, ruled by Jupiter, a planet linked with wealth, and horseshoes are a symbol of wealth.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19) - Elegant Luxe
Capricorns adore luxury and their wedding day is no exception, opting for high-end, on-trend styling. With imported scented candles and handmade chairs, no expense is spared. Guided by Saturn, the God of the harvest, Capricorns find peace in symbols like decorative sheafs, lotus pods, and clay or wooden pomegranates as part of their decor.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18) - Neutral Approach
Aquarians prioritise people over decor, opting for hypoallergenic and sustainable choices in a welcoming, inclusive environment. Their happiness stems from their guests' contentment. As an Air sign, Aquarius leans toward pale colour themes like mint or lavender. Given their intellectual interests, they might incorporate a book or movie theme, naming and decorating seating areas based on favourite literary or cinematic works.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20) - Aquatic Nautical
Pisces cherish personal mementos at their wedding. Replicas like a cinema ticket from their first date, wine with their initials, and their parents' wedding photos hold sentimental value, reminding them of what truly matters. As a water sign, blue is a must-have colour, therefore, adding aquatic details in design and dining to enhance the theme. Since water rules emotions, display family photos and relationship milestones on walls or as slides to ensure Pisces feel emotionally connected throughout their special day.
