Celestial weddings have been a recurring trend for some time, but starry, sparkly wedding dresses are more prevalent than ever before and they've never looked so beautiful. 

Pinterest has reported a 180% increase in searches for lunar wedding dresses in 2022, with searches for 'moon party decorations' and 'star-themed parties' also seeing a surge.

From moon and star motifs in metallic tones, to iridescent appliqué cascading from the bodice to the skirt, there are several ways a celestial theme can be incorporated in to your bridal gown. 

The trend even works well when set against a coloured canvas, with dresses showcasing pale blue and champagne tones to enhance the mesmerising, mystical and magical quality of the design. Tulle and chiffon fabrics further serve to add an ethereal and other-worldly element.

Sophie Creed, creative director at E&W Couture - a bohemian bridal brand based in South Wales, says: "The rise in alternative weddings has led to brides looking for a way to show off their own style with a bridal twist. A celestial look is an easy styling option, which can be toned up or toned down to suit any style. Brides are pushing the boundaries and we will always be here for it."

"Our 'Orion' gown is a celestial way to bring sparkle in to your wedding without the traditional look and can be styled in so many ways including matching super cute flower girls in our Mini range."

If you're looking to fully embrace the trend, consider a twilight wedding.
