Starry nights often evoke a sense of wonder and romance—a perfect fit for a special day like a wedding. If you’re looking for an out-of-this-world experience for your once-in-a-lifetime event, a celestial-inspired wedding is the way to go!

From shooting stars to constellations, the universe provides unlimited inspiration for couples looking to create a magical event. Whether you’re hosting a backyard barbecue or a grand ballroom celebration, you can easily infuse your wedding with cosmic vibes.


Set the tone for your star-studded affair by sending invitations printed with celestial designs and motifs. Consider a shimmering pattern of silver and gold stars against a navy blue background, or a whimsical invitation featuring a rocket ship or a charming satellite. You can also opt for a classic-meets-modern design featuring a waxing moon, surrounded by delicate floral, botanical, and constellation-inspired illustrations.

Decoration and Lighting

Transform your wedding venue into a starlit wonderland with the right decor and lighting. Create constellations on the walls with glowing paper stars or celestial-themed LED lights, or hang a “moon” made with a foil balloon, white paper, and an LED light. You can also hang colorful paper lanterns overhead for a subtle yet beautiful effect. Make sure to also include lots of silver and gold stars and moons of varying sizes and shapes for a magical touch.

Table Settings

Add lunar-inspired elements to your reception tables with the addition of constellation placemats and silver- or gold-dipped tableware. Place a single, sparkly star in the center of each guests’ plate and top each glass with a shimmering constellation coaster. If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly approach, try star-printed napkins or glittery star confetti sprinkled across the table.


For dessert, make sure to include a celestial-inspired treat. Serve beautiful mooncakes with a golden crescent at the top or opt for a classic wedding cake decorated with stars, moons, and a cascade of silver and gold sprinkles. These heavenly delicacies will surely bring a touch of wonder and enchantment to your evening.

From decorations to table settings, there are countless ways to make your wedding an out-of-this-world experience. Incorporating celestial motifs, stars, and moons is the perfect way to turn your special day into an ethereal celebration that will be remembered for years to come.
