We’ll be the first to say that pretty paper is a paramount priority for the wedding, but that’s also because we tend to be stationery snobs over here. For everyone else, who might understand the importance of save the dates and invitations, but who might not be particularly inspired or attracted to any one style - it’s beneficial to have some design direction or at least a muse to go off of. Luckily, the stars don’t lie. If your signs can give you an idea of the cosmic chemistry between you and your partner, then why wouldn’t they also be a great standard to base your stationery selections off of? We loveeee the premise, so we chatted with the creatives at Minted, the authority on unique designs by independent artists, to get ALL their thoughts on the best styles to suit your signs.
Of course, this is all. for. fun. So, if your sign / stationery taste don’t exactly vibe, not to worry! The beauty about wedding choices is that they can be whatever you want them to be. They’re your “I Dos,” so you do you! These are just some helpful how-tos, in the event that you have no idea where to start.
See what your signs have to say (in alphabetical order):
Wedding Invite Design: Funky Names Wedding Invitations
Aquarius are free-spirited, unique, modern, they may even prefer a large wedding. Ocean-inspired hues like turquoise or aquamarine, or white with a pop of purple play out well for the Aquarius.
Wedding Invite Design: Blue Tides Wedding Invitations
Aries are unexpected, adventurous, non-conformist; they want something different and a bit dramatic. So, something featuring dark-yet-romantic colors like ruby red or sapphire blue are best suited for the sign.
Wedding Invite Design: Little Wreath Wedding Invitations
Cancers are sentimental, family-focused, amenable to the backyard wedding kind of affair. Colors like classic white with dusty rose or lavender are favorable to this crew.
Wedding Invite Design: One and Only Wedding Invitations
Capricorns are traditional, classic, and chic. They live for Earthy tones like soft grays, rich browns, and charismatic chocolates.
Wedding Invite Design: Watercolor Wisp Wedding Invitations
Geminis are trendy, imaginative, detail-oriented, perhaps even more likely to host a destination wedding. Light and airy hues like periwinkle blues and pastel yellows are their best bets!
Wedding Invite Design: Painted Peony Corners Wedding Invitations
Leos are grand, opulent; they’d probably choose to hold their weddings at an estate. Thus, gold details with jewel tones like deep purple or emerald green are luxe only for Leos.
Wedding Invite Design: Fantasy Floral Bride Wedding Invitations
Libras are fun-loving, romantic, feminine, and soft. Subtle, muted colors like eggshell white, blush, pale pinks, and dusty rose are everything for Libras.
Wedding Invite Design: Marine Wedding Invitations
Pisces are romantic, intimate, sentimental, those most likely to “elope at city hall.” Pops of seafoam or soft green with a deep-blue accent or light corals are complementary combinations for Pisces.
Wedding Invite Design: Pencil Thin Wedding Invitations
Sagittarius are the world travelers, so it’s not out of the ordinary for them to desire a destination wedding or want to incorporate elements from places they've traveled to. Shades of purple, especially plums and lavenders, with accents of soft yellow and cream are the Sagittarius' colors.
Wedding Invite Design: Lux Branch Wedding Invitations
Scorpios are private, intimate, unfussy; they also know - very clearly - what they want. Rich royal colors like burgundy, crimson red, even trim touches of black make great statements for Scorpios.
Wedding Invite Design: Love Grows Wedding Invitations
Taurus are nature-inspired, comfortable, and food-focused. Neutral shades of cream and pops of green like moss or sage are harmonious for Taurus.
Wedding Invite Design: Gilded Mod Wreath Wedding Invitations
Virgos are detail-oriented and perfectionistic; their weddings are lush and romantic, but not overdone with decadent details. White and pale blue or light gray are just right for Virgos.
