There’s nothing more romantic than a night sky filled with sparkling stars, which is why a star theme is absolutely perfect for your nuptials! Make your big day shimmer and shine with any of these unique star-related wedding ideas:


Wedding invitations
Show your love of stars with this Stars Aligned Silver Foil Invitation. The stationery is filled with deep blues and purples to resemble the night sky, and sparkling stars dance across the top and bottom of the invite. Constellations spell out “Forever in Love,” setting the tone for a charming and dreamy event. I’m just as in love with the back of this invitation as I am with the front. The names of you and your future spouse are surrounded with bright stars to produce a background that is simple and stunning.

A star-studded backdrop
Decorate the backdrop of your altar to provide the perfect romantic setting to say, “I do.” Cut stars out of shimmering gold paper and hang them on yarn or string for a simple, but stunning background. You can use the same backdrop for your photo booth! Guests will love taking pictures among the stars.

Make your aisle sparkle
Add some shine to your wedding aisle by taping stars to the floor. Use glitter paper to cut out stars of various sizes and colors to give your walk down the aisle a dramatic touch.

Create a ceiling of stars
Even if you’re getting married indoors, you can still create a ceiling of stars at your ceremony or reception. Wrap white stringed lights inside layers of delicate tulle and hang the material from the ceiling. The lights combined with the tulle produces a soft, warm glow, much like the night sky.

Adorn your sweet treats
Whether you’re serving individual cupcakes or a tiered confection, you can use stars to decorate the tops of the treats. Place shimmering gold paper stars on the top of a wooden sticks and stick them on top of your cake, cupcakes or cookies for a perfectly themed finishing touch.

Accessorize your bridal hairstyle
Look for headbands or barrettes covered in stars for a simple way to dress up your ‘do.
