Aries: March 21 – April 19th
Your wedding should reflect your spontaneous, adventurous nature. You shouldn’t get married in the same hall everyone in your hometown has been using since high school graduation. You should plan a destination wedding somewhere outside of your usual boundaries. Return to the spot where you and your fiancé took your first couples retreat or travel to a new spot you have considered for your honeymoon. If you book a hotel block for your closest friends and family, you can get some discounts and make a weeklong (or at least a weekend-long) event out of your wedding. It will give you some well-needed time with the people you love the most and it will settle your restless soul.
Taurus: April 20th – May 20th
You’re a sap. A romantic. You deserve the fairy tale wedding you have always daydreamed about holding. Live out your fantasies by shelling out a little extra on a large, poofy ballgown and your dream venue (you can hold off on the honeymoon for a few months if your budget is tight). There are going to be a lot of people warning you not to waste all your money on ONE day — but you get to make your own decisions. If getting married at a castle or releasing doves into the sky during the ceremony is important to you, don’t feel embarrassed about getting what you want. It’s your day.
Gemini: May 21st – June 20th
Be honest. Your wedding is an excuse to get drunk and dance with the people you consider family. There are bars and breweries offering wedding services now, so you should consider holding your reception inside one. You’ll have a huge dance floor to do the electric slide and macarena — and you’ll have all the alcohol you could ever hope to drink. That’s really all a wedding needs.
Cancer: June 21st – July 22nd
You value close friendships. You have never been interested in owning the fanciest car or wearing the most expensive, name brand clothing. You aren’t getting married in order to show off your money or your body. You’re getting married for love. All that matters to you is that your friends show up, everyone gets along, and you get to call yourself hitched at the end of the night. That is why you should save money by getting married at town hall — or even in your own backyard. You don’t have to waste your hard-earned money on an elaborate castle where you will only spend four hours and never see again. You might as well save that money for your honeymoon or your future home.
Leo: July 23rd – August 22nd
You have always been a fan of nature, which is why your wedding ceremony shouldn’t be held indoors. You should get married outside, on the beach, underneath a floral arch overlooking the water. You can walk to your alter barefoot so you won’t have to worry about tripping in heels. You can wear a more casual, outdoor-friendly dress instead of slipping into an uncomfortable ballgown you are never going to wear again. You can hold the reception only a few steps away, under a tent or a canopy of tea lights. You can dance and drink and feel the sand between your toes as you start your journey as a married couple.
Virgo: August 23rd – September 22nd
Even though you have plenty of friends, even though you don’t want to leave anybody out, you don’t need ten bridesmaids. You don’t need a 500-person guest list. You don’t need to please everyone. You should consider having a small, intimate wedding. A wedding with only the people who know you best, the people you consider your closest friends. The day will feel even more special when you are surrounded by the ones you couldn’t live without.
Libra: September 23rd – October 22nd
You are a pro when it comes to DIYing. That is why you should save money by putting together a Pinterest wedding. Instead of paying someone else to put together a bouquet or string up decorations, you can put everything together on your own. You can make your wedding unique by handcrafting each table setting, each favor. You can make sure your wedding can never be replicated.
Scorpio: October 23rd – November 21st
You have always been a wild child, an old soul, a tree hugger. You fill your rooms with houseplants and animals because they bring you peace. You should lean into the natural side of you on your special day by having a bohemian wedding. Consider getting married outside, in a stretch of woods, or at least filling your ceremony aisles with greenery and getting bamboo chairs. Become one with your person — and one with nature.
Sagittarius: November 22nd – December 21st
You’ve always been casual. You aren’t used to getting dressed to the nines because you would rather keep comfortable. That is why you should consider having a rustic wedding. You can get married in a barn where guests can sit on hay bales during the ceremony. Then, for the reception, they can choose from a buffet. Despite what everyone is telling you, your wedding doesn’t have to be a formal event. You can tone it down as much as you’d like.
Capricorn: December 22nd – January 19th
There’s nothing wrong with sticking to the classics. You don’t have to think outside of the box on your wedding day. You can stick to tradition. You can carry something borrowed and something blue down the aisle. You can smush cake onto each other’s faces and drink champagne with your arms linked. You can slow dance to your song and toss a bouquet over your shoulder for your bridesmaids to fight over. You can take part in all the traditions you grew up watching on television.
Aquarius: January 20th – February 18th
You are an artistic, creative soul, which is what your person loves most about you. You never try to blend in with the crowd. You would rather stick out. You would rather be unique. That is why you should dabble with the idea of a themed wedding. Halloween has always been one of your favorite holidays, so why not wear costumes on your wedding? You don’t have to dress as ghouls and goblins. You can ask each of your bridesmaids to dress as a Disney princess or ask each of your groomsmen to wear superhero shirts under their tuxes. Make your wedding fun. Don’t take it too seriously.
Pisces: February 19th – March 20th
Your special day would not be as special without everyone you love surrounding you. Even though it’s tempting to choose a destination wedding, you should probably stick to getting married somewhere local, somewhere everyone can access. You don’t want half your guest list to turn down invitations because they cannot afford to fly out to you. Get a big room. A big spread of food. A big bottle of champagne and enjoy your new family.
