He finally got down on one knee and popped the question! We’re happy, in love and so excited! We’ve already called all the important people in our life and posted a picture of the ring to all of our social media accounts. The next step is planning the wedding. We have always been told that this is the hard part, but we have a binder full of ideas that we’ve been collecting for years. We’ve got this thing covered. Or, maybe this was so spur-of-the-moment that wedding planning hasn’t even occurred to us yet.
At any rate, picking a theme for that wedding is one of the first steps, and it helps a lot to consolidate and solidify our plans. From books to travel to tea to Star Wars, the number of varied themes is huge; we could spend all day scrolling through Pinterest looking at all the different ideas until our head hurts. To save ourselves some of that work, there’s an easy solution: a nice list of what our wedding theme should be based on what our horoscope anniversary sign will be (assuming we’ve already picked a date). So, settle in, start scrolling and feel free to steal some of the other signs’ wedding themes if you don’t immediately like yours. We won’t tell anyone.
20 Excessive Amounts Of Earth
Earth signs are the steady, patient people who get married young and stay married for decades. The Earth signs are Capricorn, who is cardinal and begins the season, Taurus, who is fixed and holds everything steady, and Virgo, who is muted and changeable —ending the season so a new one can begin again. If your groom is an earth sign, he will be patient throughout all the planning. According to Astrostyle,
“Slow and steady, these ‘builders’ are loyal and stable, and stick by their people through hard times.
On good days, they’re practical; at worst, they can be materialistic or too focused on the surface of things to dig into the depths.”
19 Scorpio Heads Off For Vegas
If your wedding takes place between October 23 and November 21, you will have a Scorpio anniversary. Because you are passionate and just a little impatient, getting married ASAP will appeal to you, and the excitement of an elopement fits that perfectly — even if it’s at city hall instead of Vegas. As Your Tango puts it,
“And as soon as you say your vows, you take marriage very seriously, making you one of the most loyal and faithful couples.
So, it only stands to reason that if you only have eyes (and love) for each other, that your passion for one another would be out of this world.”
18 Sagittarius Is Planning A Destination Wedding
Marriages between November 22 and December 21 are comfortable marriages that don’t necessarily fit the mold of what marriage should look like. You can argue and then make up without missing a beat or destroying the house. The perfect wedding theme for you is travel. The more exotic location, the better, even if you have to bring the exotic to your backyard. According to Pure Wow,
“Somebody’s gotta be the bride who decides to drag their loved ones halfway across the globe to her pain-in-the-neck (but yes, completely amazing) destination wedding.
And you, sweet nomad, are just that girl.”
17 Capricorn Is All For Traditional
With a wedding date between December 22 and January 19, you have a Capricorn sign. Capricorns are all about tradition and family, so it will be important for you to have all your loved ones there with you. A classic white dress and the ceremony in a church (even if you aren’t religious) will be the way to go for you. Plus, that classic father-daughter dance will be a must. As Brides says,
“Capricorn is the sign of tradition, which is why this winter wedding typically happens around Christmastime or the New Year.
You and your hubby are all about legacy and honoring your heritage.”
16 Fire Burns Passionately
Fire is a life-force and powerful all by itself. It can level forests and warm us in the winter or simply provide light with a tiny candle or match. The signs of fire are Aries, who is cardinal and begins spring with energy, Leo, who is fixed and matches strength with summer, and Sagittarius, who is mutable and finishes off autumn. According to Astrostyle,
“Like fire itself, fire signs tend to be passionate, dynamic, and temperamental. Fire can keep you warm, or it can do great destruction.
While fire burns out quickly without fuel to keep it going, it can also regenerate its power from the ashes.”
15 Aquarius Needs A Whole Weekend Festival
Marriages between January 20 and February 18 fall under the air sign of Aquarius. Since you are so unique, the term “weekend festival” can take almost any shape. As long as you have the whole weekend to celebrate with your loved ones and are marrying the love of your life, you are golden. Cosmopolitan offers this great idea for your wedding itself:
“As a total original who loves the water, you'll love a wedding on a boat. You can watch the waves, all your loved ones are stuck with you in one place as long as you want the party to go on.
And nautical colors look great with everything.”
14 Pisces Ties The Knot By A Lake
Weddings between February 19 and March 20 are Pisces weddings, and your theme is magical. Obviously, this can take just about any form you wish. One of the best for your type is by a mountainous lake. A little sparkly snow never hurt anyone, either. If you really want to run with the magic theme, a Harry Potter wedding would hit the spot. According to Instyle,
“Whatever magical environment you decide to surround yourself and your guests with, make sure you hire a great DJ or a great band (or both).
The stars say music is very important to you, Pisces.”
13 Aries Is All Modern And Shiny
Wedding dates between March 21 and April 19 end up with an Aries anniversary. Aries leads with his head and is impulsive and impatient. A nice short ceremony with a reception before jetting off on your adventurous honeymoon is perfect for you, and the ideal theme is modern. You don’t want to waste time on DIY projects or which napkin color matches the bridesmaids’ dresses better. As Instyle puts it,
“Aries likes modern celebrations and keeping it simple without too much crazy focus on the details.
They want a wedding that emphasizes the love that’s being announced and the commitment that’s being made on that day, in that special moment.”
12 Take Deep Breaths Of Air
Air signs connect all the other signs — fueling fire, balancing water, and being the opposite of earth in so many ways. The air signs are Libra, who is cardinal and greets autumn with a rush of enthusiasm, Aquarius, who is fixed and steady, and Gemini, who is mutable and closes out spring with a final breath. According to Astrostyle,
“Air signs bring everyone a breath of fresh air when things start to get stale.
Like the breeze, you can’t quite catch them, and you never know where they’ll drop you once they sweep you up. It will almost always been an adventure, though.”
11 Taurus Plans A Garden Theme
Marriages that begin between April 20 and May 20 are Taurus marriages. You are reliable, patient, and calm when chaos surrounds you. Because you are the most deeply rooted of the signs, the perfect theme for your wedding is a garden one — with a focus on new life. A forest setting or even your backyard is also excellent venue options. According to Brides,
“Taurus is an extremely sensual, decadent sign. You and your hubby enjoy the finer things in life, and you're definitely not afraid to indulge your taste for luxury.
Good news: You're destined to have a very grounded marriage.”
10 Gemini: Glamorous And Glittery
Weddings taking place between May 21 and June 20 are Gemini weddings. You’re fun and social, but have so many interests that picking just one as your wedding theme is difficult. Aim for something that is glamorous and throw in some glitter for that extra pizzazz that you need. As Pure Wow tells us,
“A distinct theme wedding (think a masquerade ball or Old Hollywood glamour) that will have everyone talking for years to come.
As a social air sign, you find great joy in bringing loved ones together in an exciting context. And in, yes, causing a stir. This memorable take on the wedding tradition is just the ticket.”
9 Cancer Weds Beachside
Weddings between June 21 and July 22 fall under the sign of Cancer. If you have always dreamed of a summer wedding by the beach and walking across the soft sand barefoot, then you are in luck! Your perfect theme is the beach, and what better way to incorporate that than to have a beachside wedding? According to Your Tango,
“Getting married during Cancer season means that you are most likely going to have one of the more traditional marriages.
This in no way means your marriage is going to be boring and predictable but rather based on love and commitment (and a whole lot of kids).”
8 And Don't Forget To Drink Water
Water is essential to life — more so than fire and equally to air. It nourishes the earth to produce life and keeps fire in check. Water is often taken for granted, but its absence is sorely felt. The signs for water are Cancer, who is cardinal and begins summer, Scorpio, who is fixed and deep like an ocean, and Pisces, who is mutable and ever-changing like a mountain brook. According to Astrostyle,
“Intuitive, emotional, and ultra-sensitive, water signs can be as mysterious as the ocean itself.
Like water, they can be refreshing or they can drown you in their depths. These signs often have intense dreams and borderline-psychic intuition.”
7 Leo Hosts A Dramatic Blowout Event
A Leo wedding takes place between July 23 and August 22 and is usually the big blowout event that makes it to the newspapers. You’re dramatic and love to host a good party, so why should your wedding be any different? It will be the biggest blowout event of the year— regardless of the venue. As Pure Wow says, “You’ve been counting down the minutes to your big day since, erm, probably the womb.
And yes, as the star, you will be pulling out all the stops.
Translation: There will be a fireworks display (or two). And no less than 400 people.”
6 Virgo Has A Low-Key Restaurant Affair
Virgo marriages occur between August 23 and September 22. You like meticulous details (so a wedding sounds like a dream and a nightmare combined for you), but you also like to keep things private and grounded. So, a low-key restaurant setting with minimalist touches and the 20 people you’re closest to is perfect. According to Cosmopolitan,
“Showcase your mind-blowingly meticulous taste with a minimalist wedding. All-white everything — your guests, the flowers, the furniture.
(Plus, you get to stress less about how shy you get when you remember that your white dress will blend in, at least a little bit, with everyone else's.)”
5 Libra Requires A Forest
Marriages taking place between September 23 and October 22 are Libra weddings. As the balance of the signs, you want everyone to be happy, but at the same time, you also want to celebrate and have a great party. Why not take advantage of the autumn foliage and head for the mountains for a great outdoor wedding? As Pure Wow says,
“It’s great you’re legally binding yourself to the love of your life and all, but if we’re being real: you’re here to C-E-L-E-B-R-A-T-E this marriage!
As the beloved party girl, your biggest splurges will definitely be a top-shelf open bar all night and an amazing live band to keep guests shaking it.”
4 Bonus: Libra Is Refined And Elegant
If you’ve already done the big all-night party theme before or you want something a bit more grown-up for your own tastes, shoot for refined and elegant. You can have a nice chic garden party (with an adult libation instead of tea), or a classy sit-down dinner in full evening dress. Whichever way you decide to slice and dice refined and elegant, it will be classy and gorgeous. As Instyle says,
“Libras also like classic weddings that are well done and are matching — from the glassware to the napkins to the detailing on the chair.
The fine details are very important to them — their dress should look seamlessly in the surrounding.
3 Bonus: Cancer Has A Cozy Backyard Wedding
If a beach isn’t readily available or you want a smaller venue so you can keep the guest list nice and small too, then try for a cozy backyard wedding with a fairy theme to it. String little lights up, stick glow-sticks in jars and balloons and have a barbecue. You’re comfortable and all set. Now, to find the perfect dress. As Pure Wow says,
“But you do love your nearest and dearest — deeply and incomparably.
A cozy, catered affair (in your parents’ garden, perhaps?) will serve as a wonderful backdrop for intimate conversation, happy-tearful toasts and festive drinks and dancing, of course.”
2 Bonus: Sagittarius Has An Exciting Elopement
If the mere thought of wedding plans has you in a panicky sweat, try for a nice dash of excitement and elope. It gives you the chance to do things on your own at your own speed without having to go through the whole hassle of planning an entire wedding just to have something go wrong. You can throw a party for your friends and family after you get back. As Cosmopolitan says,
“So do a last-minute beach wedding. Skip the gown and go for a white mini, let your hair do what it wants, and embrace the fun, crazy surprise of an oceanside wedding.
(Plus, no hard-and-fast plans mean nothing to stress about ahead of time.)”
1 Bonus: Taurus Aims For Rustic
If you don’t have a garden available, but you really like the idea it provides, go for a rustic look. Maybe someone has a barn they can loan you for the night, or you know of a perfectly nice, big empty field somewhere. At any rate, a rustic theme fits you perfectly. You can pick darker earthy colors for your color scheme and stand out that way, too. As Instyle reminds us,
“But make no mistake, nothing will be done on the cheap.
Taurus requires only the best quality of everything—a lot of handcrafted and organic things, and those can get quite pricey.”
