I’d bet 98% of people reading this article aren’t actively looking for a wedding dress. This piece is for us closet say yes to the dress fans who have been moodboarding about our wedding since we first saw Keira Knightly’s wispy feather halo in love in fact. For those of us who might be single – in fact, might be a little fuzzy about whether the institution of marriage is for them or not – but have adamant opinions about color schemes, flowers, bridesmaid outfits, catering, location and whether they will have a live band or DJ. (The open bar is obviously a must.) Because, while weddings are (hopefully) just one event in a person’s life, marriage fancy is always. So find your sun sign and your rising sign and start growing the Pinterest board that I know you already have.
Aries, your dress should be glamorous and sexy, just like you. You have the confidence to pull off literally anything, so we recommend being a little bold in your choice.
Taurus, you are ruled by Venus, which means you’ll probably opt for something romantic and opulent, but still comfortable and totally you. Your dress shouldn’t look like a costume but rather be an embodiment of your excellent taste.
Geminis are fun and daring, so we recommend opting for separates or maybe investing in an overskirt that you can take off after the ceremony, so you can dance around and visit your guests with ease.
Cancers – you sensitive ones, beauties – might opt for a dress that’s voluminous but not too fussy. You might consider a classic silhouette with a little cottagecore flair.
It’s time for you to shine! There’s no doubt you’ll find a show with insane, yet gorgeous elements, like a ridiculously long train or enough crystal embellishments to make the stars jealous of your sparkle.
When I imagine how I would dress a Virgo, I always think of Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy. A wedding dress in the style of hers, simple, clean and ultra-flattering, would suit you perfectly.
If there’s a time to get lost in your wildest aesthetic dreams, it’s now. Don’t be afraid of a little excess – like Taurus, you are ruled by Venus, which gives you a natural eye for beauty. Have fun!
You can always count on Scorpios to bring shego energy. You’re the resident goths of the zodiac, so a black wedding dress might have crossed your mind before. Even if you opt for the traditional white, the dress will look spectacular and sexy.
Tradition doesn’t necessarily interest a Sagittarius, so allow yourself to be a little daring. A destination wedding? An elopement? Either way, you’ll be craving some adventure and a sexy, adventurous outfit to match.
Just because you want something practical doesn’t mean it won’t be luxurious. Embellishment might not be your taste, but modern elegance is just as stunning.
Like Sagittarians, conventions are not a priority for you. Find a dress as unique as your personality—it might not even be a dress! It may not be white!
Your idea of love was probably shaped by Jane Austen or maybe even Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. You’ll want a dress that expresses the true extent of your dreamy romanticism, so we recommend something wispy and Regency-era inspired.
