Are you the type of bride who loves control but really needs to learn how to let go? Or are you more the laid back, "I'd rather hire someone else to help with all the details" kind of wedding planner? Astrologer Suzie Kerr Wright breaks down your basic wedding planning style based on your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
With your "get it done" temperament, you're the type of wedding planner who loves to be in charge! You'll have to learn to trust your bridesmaids and vendors to handle the details or you might find yourself yelling at the caterer (that famous Aries temper!) when you should be walking down the aisle.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Taurus weddings can either be very simple or some of the most luxurious affairs ever. Your attention to detail and desire for the best of the best will guarantee a perfect day but can also cause major stress if things don't go exactly as planned and that Taurus, slow boiling temper can erupt. Remember that everyone is on your side and doing the best they can.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You have no problem putting together a wedding in a short amount of time because your priority is bringing everyone together, no matter how or where. If your wedding is massive, you'll have no issue hiring others to handle those pesky details either while you enjoy the festivities with your friends and family. Gemini weddings are definitely the ones that have hilarious moments you see on YouTube with great dancing and lots of memorable LOLs in the best way possible.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Wedding planning for Cancers can be problematic with worrying about who gets along with who and whether or not you'll have enough food (Cancers love to feed). You can easily get distracted from the beauty and joy of planning the event because of your desire to make everyone feel comfortable. Let family and friends handle many of those tasks, as they know you well enough to ensure a perfect day.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
You can bet your wedding will definitely be done in a grand style! Your planning challenge is to keep it in on budget though and to be open to other ideas if what you want is just not humanly possible. Your wedding day should be perfect, but watch out for that lion's roar if something isn't just right.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Best wedding planner ever! Okay, maybe that's an exaggeration. As you know, details are no problem for a Virgo. You could do the entire event yourself. But don't. This is your day and your best bet would be to find the top of the line, most meticulous wedding planner, give them all your instructions and let it go. And try not to change your mind too many times either.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Fairytale weddings and Libra go hand in hand. "As long as it's beautiful" is your mantra. Libras can make wedding planning a super fun event for everyone involved, as they love to share their ideas. They also love to make connections with vendors and let others know when they get great service. Libras like to bring folks together so the event could get very big, very fast.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Planning your wedding can be a mystical experience because you are so fond of the exotic. But don't keep all the info in your head. At some point, you'll need to find at least one person to let in on your secrets and surprises for your guests. You'll want to control it all, but don't forget that mere mortals will be involved so be careful with your Scorpio stinger if they fall short of your expectations. Remember what the day is really about.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
You're a blast to plan a wedding with. Your ideas are outrageous and everyone will want to get involved in making them happen! Sagittarians aren't known for being detail oriented so hire a reliable Virgo wedding planner and all you'll need to do is book your plane tickets. You're the one most likely to have a destination wedding.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
You're a natural born leader. Your wedding will be traditional and elegant and will all be laid out in the perfect order by precisely the perfect people. You know how to suss out the best of the best. You've no doubt been planning this for years and have had a file with all the best wedding vendors in it tucked away (but updated yearly) for a long time. No worries here.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Aquarian weddings are so fun! Your offbeat style is reflected in everything you do. You can, however, get a bit obsessive over all of it so turn that energy toward making your own decorations, designing your own invitations or using your creativity to enhance the event. Like Sag, your friends will also be eager to help; they've never seen such a unique event.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Planning a wedding with a Pisces is like drifting off into a beautiful fantasy. However, not everyone will be able to see what's in your mind. Even if you can literally paint the picture of how it should all look, it still has to have some basis in reality so be willing to compromise here and there. It will no doubt have every element of a fairytale and the most important thing is you get to live happily ever after when all the cake has been eaten and the last dance has been danced.
