Bridal Gowns by Sign
Use your Sun sign to find your ultimate wedding day style
A wedding is the celebration of the loving union between two people — but the bride undoubtedly pulls the focus! However traditional or non-traditional your tastes might be, you’ll be putting extra thought into the ensemble you wear to say your vows. Cut down on the stress of searching and the time spent trying on dresses at bridal boutiques — let your Sun sign be your personal stylist! Your Astrology dictates the kind of cut you’ll be drawn to, and ensures that when you look at those photos decades from now, you won’t regret what you wore down the aisle.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)
Because your sign is one of the most impulsive, you’ll probably prefer using the natural beauty of an outdoor setting. Your gown should match your airy, unfussy attitude toward the ceremony: think sleek, lightweight — even strapless! You may not be one for frills, but your fiery nature would certainly urge you toward a dramatically low-cut décolletage, or even a halter-neck gown with a red accent (red is your color!). Don’t get weighed down by too much jewelry, and make sure your heels aren’t too high — you are the one bride of the zodiac who should seriously consider wearing flats, because you’ll definitely be buzzing around during your special day!
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)
Your sign isn’t one to skimp on the important things, and you put a premium on luxurious comfort. In fact, your wedding will probably offer a five-star menu and the top brands of champagne. So when it comes to getting dressed, you’ll want to drape yourself in expensive fabrics to match your taste for the finer things: think silk and chiffon! And as a sign with a strong aesthetic eye, don’t ignore the details: embroidered or jeweled accents are perfect for you, and would dazzle on your veil as well. In terms of cut, go V-neck or empire-style — or even off-the-shoulder. Keep it simple but stunning!
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)
Airy and on-the-go, Gemini, you are truly a playful, youthful sign. You can pull off a retro ’50s prom dress style: think taffeta and bubble skirt! You can also pay homage to fashion pioneers: consider channeling off-beat icon Edie Sedgwick by wearing a white linen sheath with lace accent and sequin headband. Top it all off with vintage pearls, dangly earrings or rhinestone detail. Don’t be afraid to trail-blaze when it comes to wedding fashion, and as the Twin sign, don’t be afraid to shock people by revealing another side of your style personality!
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)
If you can, stick to a seaside ceremony — you’ll be near your own element: Water! You can keep it simple and wear a beach-appropriate white halter dress, with little more to adorn your hair than Earth’s natural blossoms. But because you’re also the sign that prizes history and family tradition, you’d be equally at home saying “I do” in a historic church while wearing a vintage cut dress — empire-waist or silk gown with long train and veil — and pairing it with jewelry that has been passed down through your family (or your fiancé’s) for generations.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)
You won’t shy away from being the center of attention, Leo! Whatever time of day or level of formality you choose when it comes to the ceremony, you will want to make a grand entrance and bring the bling! For you, the wedding is all about being stunning, so knock ‘em dead with a lace-back gown that clings to your curves, or go for a strapless corset dress with ballgown skirt — and what the heck, style your hair in a pompadour! Whichever look you choose, you’ll appear regal and completely at home in the spotlight.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)
You’ll probably want to acknowledge your sign’s Earth element and opt for an outdoor ceremony; in the same way, keep your attire natural and organic in warm off-whites that will suit you better than a completely bleached-out hue. Ivory silk is your best bet, accented with handmade rosebuds. Your tastes are simple and elegant, so keep the style of dress simple and instead of an elaborate veil, consider a tiara or wreath made of fresh flowers. At the same time, a long, strapless gown made of organza sheath or a white silk number with a tantalizingly modest bateau neckline, topped off with an upswept ‘do, is sure to stun!
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)
Weddings are truly a Libra affair, since yours is the sign of partnership. And because this is a day for glamour, you have the ultimate opportunity to show off your keen sense of beauty! Don’t be afraid to go a little overboard with elbow-length satin gloves, even if you’re wearing a more understated strapless gown with subtle floral print. But even for a daytime ceremony, you can go all out and tap into your inner goddess with a silk chiffon dress with cowl neckline, or a one-shouldered flowing frock that brings to mind an ancient Greek statue.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)
Your sign likes to explore the murky depths of human emotion — but Scorpios can also feel intensely, and when that feeling is happiness, you’ll want to make a big statement! Since your dark sign is also one of the sexiest, opt for an evening or nighttime wedding where a bold and revealing gown is most appropriate. Be charming in an off-the-shoulder gown that hints at your assets without showing too much, or else play up your shoulders and lovely décolletage with a strapless A-line gown trimmed with red or burgundy accents.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)
As the traveler of the zodiac, your sign would most prefer a destination wedding where the honeymoon can start as soon as the ceremony is over! A tropical setting would most suit your appetites for the exotic, so you’ll want a dress to match the backdrop: something that is short and packs easily is ideal, since it allows you to be elegant and on-the-go! Pair a lacey knee-length gown (with asymmetrical hem) with metallic sandals and drop earrings, and consider letting your hair down. A dressier halter gown also allows for easy travel and achieves a statuesque effect.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)
Focus on the fabric first — your sign craves the best in textiles! Then think of a style that says “structure” — a gown with a well-made corset bodice is perfect, but you can also hint at your business-minded nature with an elegant, 1940s-style dress suit in ivory satin. Whatever you decide, buying or renting a diamond necklace is a natural choice for your status-savvy sign. And when you walk down the aisle, make sure your hair is upswept: your sign knows more than any other how to dress appropriately for an occasion!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)
You are the sign of the zodiac that can really take tradition and run with it in an entirely new direction! Although you’re typically unconventional, you might nod to ritual with a dramatic, Victorian-inspired lace gown, but mix it up with accents of black lace. Or you might tap into one of the most revolutionary decades in history — the 1960s — and suit up in a sheath dress with a subtle geometric pattern and bell sleeves. Or you could even express your individualist streak by wearing a simple style in an unexpected hue, like orchid pink or electric blue.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)
Yours is the sign of enchantment and fantasy, so don’t be afraid to go ultra-feminine on your big day. Choose a fairytale setting for your vows, then dress to the nines in a flowing dress that brings to mind royalty and a more traditional time. Don’t shy away from billowing fabrics or even ruffles, and if you’re getting married after dark, indulge in some lace with accents in oh-so-Pisces colors: aqua marine or purple.
