What to Look for in a Starry Wedding Dress

Starry wedding dresses are perfect for the whimsical, quirky bride looking for something truly unique. When shopping for a starry wedding dress consider if you want a bold style or something more subtle. If you are opting for a sparkly, bold look, consider delicate jewelry and gold accents. If you go for a soft, celestial look, consider pairing with a statement heel or starry hairpiece to pull the look together.

FAQ
  • What silhouette is best for a celestial wedding dress?

    You can find starry, celestial wedding dresses in a variety of different styles and silhouettes. Just consider what look fits your personal style best. If you are hoping for a more ethereal, laid-back look, an a-line maxi gown is a great choice. Or, if you want a more showstopping piece, a grand ball gown with starry detailing is the way to go.

That said, if you're a bride-to-be with bold tastes, you can opt to style your gown with fun accessories like star-shaped earrings or galaxy-inspired hairpins.
