Stargazers, get ready for the wedding inspiration of your dreams, because the celestial wedding trend is here and ready to sweep you off your feet. Celestial accents — that's anything inspired by the sky, astronomy, stars, or outer space — are the latest must-have trend for your wedding. Maybe it was the 2017 solar eclipse that sparked this galactic obsession, or the fact that reading about horoscopes, star signs and the universe's healing powers has become a regular routine for many of us (we're looking at you, millennials). Either way, it seems that all eyes have turned to the sky, and we're definitely on board. From sultry, midnight blue colors to iridescent details (and plenty of sparkle), these enchanting wedding ideas are perfect for any star-obsessed bride or groom.
See why we're over the moon for these celestial wedding ideas.
While there's always the option of sending out invitations decorated with stars and glitter, we prefer a more subtle take on the celestial wedding trend when it comes to stationery. These gilded invitations are the perfect embodiment of ethereal, elegant style.
Sapphire Engagement Ring
Colored engagement rings are back and better than ever. A dark blue sapphire is ultra-regal (thanks, Kate Middleton!) and fits right in with the celestial wedding trend.
The runways at Bridal Fashion Week were literally covered with stars this past season. Dozens of designers pulled their inspiration from the heavens and adorned their dresses with star-shaped beading, shimmering sequins, constellation patterns, and more. A celestial wedding dress will make you feel like the true #moonbabe that you are on your wedding day!
Dress by Galia Lahav
The dresses weren't the only things inspired by the skies at Bridal Fashion Week. Models were seen with angelic, barely-there makeup that put emphasis on dewy skin, rosy cheeks and natural lips. A swoop of silver eyeliner on the models at Alexandra Grecco felt especially celestial.
Blue Bridesmaid Dresses
After years of blush bridesmaid dresses reigning supreme, these blue styles are like a breath of fresh air. You can mix-and-match shades for a modern take on the blue bridesmaid dress trend. The best part is that this color is flattering on pretty much anyone.
Don't be shy about rocking a sparkly pair of heels on your wedding day! These glittery stilettos are fun, glamorous and flirty. If heels aren't your thing, a pair of sparkly flats or sneakers are just as playful.

Forget the traditional guestbook — this constellation guestbook is SO much cooler. Use well-known constellations, like the Big Dipper and Little Dipper, or personalize it with your zodiac signs.
We always love a good romantic wedding sign. Choose a star-themed quote like this one to go along with your celestial wedding theme.
