Out of This World! Wedding Inspiration From Space

Since the beginning of time, the skies above have fascinated and beguiled people. Couples have been brought together under the stars, and in some cases love has blossomed thanks to the stars, when astronomy and a mutual admiration of the heavens above turns into love. If the stars have shone for you then using space or astronomy as a theme for your wedding day is the perfect way to express your passion.

There are so many starting points for this wedding theme. Old astronomy maps and constellations are perfect for invitations. Instead of a flower girl you could have a space girl that sprinkles stardust (glitter) or star confetti down the aisle. If you are getting married at night or in a dark venue you could feature a backdrop of lights to create the illusion of starlight.

You can draw inspiration from the heavens in everything from your dress to the bouquet. A midnight blue gown with crystals for you or your bridesmaids will create an illusion of the midnight sky. For your flowers you can work with a range of blossoms and add some craspedia as small planets amongst your blooms.

If you want to incorporate hints of the space theme rather than going all astral then you can add touches of stars and sparkle! For example, we love glittery wedding gowns and wedding invitations, and you can add a touch of gold in everything from your cake to your thank you cards. 

Photography is one area where you will be glad you chose this theme - if you get a clear night then just imagine the photographs you will have to treasure forever of you standing in front of a backdrop of stars or a giant moon!
