Lace, tulle, silk, or couture, it's all in the stars.
In theory, finding the perfect dress for your big day is exciting, thrilling, the best. scenario. ever. But most of the time, it’s downright stressful. Sifting through a sea of fluffy tulle, antique French lace, hand-beaded trains, and choosing between something classic or modern or over-the-top—the pressure! To help narrow down wedding dress options (and guide you to your bridal designer match), we looked to the stars and had our astrologer, Amelia Quint, decipher what they actually mean when it comes to your matrimonial wardrobe.
With Mars as your planetary ruler, you need a nuptial ensemble that won’t restrict your movement. Relaxed bridal looks are perfect for your wild-child style. Try a simple, raw-edged silk gown with teeny straps and a low back that won’t impede on your dance moves, and for bonus points, slip on a leather jacket over your dress at the end of the night for a twist on the traditional bridal aesthetic.

With the moon as your planetary ruler, it’s no secret you’re going to be very sentimental about your wedding day. For a timeless dress with a personal touch, go vintage! As a natural introvert, you may not love big gatherings, but a beautiful reworked gown will give you the confidence boost you need to survive being the center of attention—and maybe even enjoy it, too. A soft fabric is also a must, especially with your sign’s trademark sensitive skin. It is possible to feel as good as you look, we promise.

You need a straightforward ensemble, complete with sleek collars, sharp pleats, and slim lines that serious Saturn, your planetary ruler, would love.
