Day after day we hear from brides “I want a wedding dress that feels like me.” With so much pressure on finding the one, from mom, mother-in-laws, even the looming thought of what your future hubby or wifey will think…it can be easy to loose sight of what makes you feel like you. Especially when most of us have never shopped for a wedding dress before.
Whether you religiously check your horoscope, own multiple items adorned with your zodiac sign (guilty…) or just think its a quirky, and sometimes coincidental, icebreaker…you’re in the right place. Purchasing a wedding dress can be one of the most emotional and exciting purchases you’ll ever make. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun and guidance from what’s written in the stars.
As an Aries bride, you probably dove head-first into finding your dress with little fear or worry. You’re looking for a wedding dress that’s as bold and ambitious as you are. You want a WOW-Factor, something your guests have never seen before, something new…all this to say: you are a trail-blazer in life and in bridal trends.
Channeling powerful Mars, we foresee Grace + Ivory’s AdeOla Gown in your stars. Paired with an all-over crepe bridal cape, you will glide down the aisle with the grace of a queen. Since an Aries loves a dramatic reveal, AdeOla’s mesh beaded back will be the talk of your reception.
As a Taurus bride, you probably shop with your hands as much as your eyes. You gravitate towards high quality fabrics like silks, satins, and crepes and you’ve probably already discovered that your local David’s Bridal just isn’t cutting it. Like your celestial animal, the bull, you like to feel serene in your environment and this applies especially, when it comes to the comfort of your wedding dress.
Channeling lovely Venus, we foresee our Sloane Gown in your stars. Sloane’s light, 100% silk skirt will surely live up to your high standards. While her lace bodice, soft details, and button up back will bring the romance you’re craving. Since a Taurus bride will steer clear of anything overly embellished, Sloane’s simplicity will seamlessly blend within your vision.
As a Gemini bride, you probably are interested in multiple bridal styles and are finding it difficult to choose. You may even have decided on a separate ceremony and reception dress…so that you can have the best of both. You want a dress that’s both playful and visually intriguing. Something airy…you are an air sign after all.
Channeling chatty Mercury, we foresee our Gemma Gown in your stars. Her airy tulle skirt makes her the lightest ballgown for twirling. Since a Gemini bride loves to channel the butterfly, Gemma’s delicate lace top will be the perfect nod to the exquisite creature.
As a Cancer bride, you’ve probably already discovered that searching for your wedding dress is a highly emotional and exciting experience. You’re likely to be drawn to a wedding dress that is more traditional. You may even be searching for something with long sleeves or a vintage lace. You want something timeless that you may even pass down.
Channeling the constant moon, our Salcia Gown is in your stars. An all-over crepe with peeks of ivory lace, this a dress that’ll withstand the test of time. Since a Cancer bride draws inspiration from the ocean, pair Salcia with a pair of pearl earrings to complete the look.
As a Leo bride, you’re no stranger to being in the spotlight. You could wear anything and look like you stepped straight off a runway and your wedding dress is no exception. You want a dress with dramatic details and perhaps even some color. You want a gown fitting of a lioness without wearing something fluffy and yellow.
Challenging the fiery moon, our Ava Gown is in your stars. Her champagne underlay is your subtle gold shimmer, while the rest of the dress brings the sparkle (beaded sparkle straps…yes please!) Since a Leo bride is basically royalty, the Ava dress has a fitted underskirt with an A-line overlay. You really can have it all.
As a Virgo bride, you’ve probably noticed you have a keen eye for the details. From the fabrics, to the beading, to the lace appliqués…you want to know every detail that makes your dress the one. You aim for an understated elegance over anything too flashy or poofy, and you want a dress that’s tailored to perfection (made-to-measure bridal?)
Channeling intuitive Mercury, our Melody Gown is in your stars. An all-over ivory crepe with an incredibly intricate back, Melody is classic yet fresh. Since a Virgo bride loves to feel effortless, Melody’s removable off-the-shoulder straps will free up your arms for dancing.
As a Libra bride, you’ve probably found yourself overthinking your wedding dress decisions. However, you’re likely to make the choice with an intellectual and practical eye instead of a tear-fueled snap decision. You want something of the utmost quality, and something on the cusp of bridal trends. But you still want to feel at your most bridal in a dress that accentuates your femininity.
Channeling beauteous Venus, our Tessa Gown is in your stars. Her sheath silhouette and cascading lace will give you a wedding dress fit for Aphrodite. Since a Libra bride is all about balance, the Tessa dress is the perfect combination of sweet and sultry.
As a Scorpio bride, you don’t fret in the face of plunging necklines and low-low backs. But just because Scorpio is ruled by the sex organs, doesn’t mean you want to bare it all on your wedding day. You want playful yet powerful, mysterious yet statement-worthy…all this to say: you want a wedding dress that does the impossible.
Channeling cunning Pluto, our Sienna Gown is in your stars. She has a satin skirt that hugs in all the right places and a combination illusion and lace top. Since a Scorpio bride loves a bit of mystery, your guests will be wondering how the dress appears glued to your body. She’s made of magic.
As a Sagittarius bride, you yearn for a wedding dress that’s as adventurous as you. Ruled by the archer, you want a dress that will amplify your strength and magnetism. Perhaps a dress that’ll travel, for your mountain top or destination wedding. You want wanderlust in a dress that encompasses the old and the new.
Channeling desiring Jupiter, our Madison Gown is in your stars. A fitted silhouette with a Spanish-inspired lace, Madison has a vintage feel that could blend in any time or place. Since a Sagittarius bride loves to roam, you’ll do so in style with the Madison gown’s pointed train.
As a Capricorn bride, you probably had your wedding dress options narrowed down long before there was a ring (we love a prepared bride!) Embodied by the sea goat, you’re already skilled in navigating all aspects of your life. Even though shopping for a wedding dress is uncharted territory, you know what looks good on your body and won’t veer from the course. You want a dress with sharp lines and structure, perhaps a more traditional silhouette like a high-neck. And you probably want a true ivory…an all around classic wedding dress for your classic day.
Channeling strict Saturn, we foresee our Elise Gown in your stars. Ivory crepe with a high-neck and embellishments, makes Elise a dress that balances classic with glamour. Since a Capricorn bride has perfected the “work hard, play hard” mentality, Elise effortlessly transitions from ceremony to reception.
As an Aquarius bride, you are not listening to anyone else’s opinions when it comes to your wedding dress. You are free-spirited, forward-thinking; a rebel at heart…and you want a dress that reflects so. You’re probably looking for a dress with a low “V” or a fun slit. We even see you changing into a flirty mini towards the end of the night…with some fringe or sparkle.
Channeling innovative Uranus, we foresee our Melanie Gown in your future. With her whimsical chiffon skirt (hello slit!) and hand-beaded lace bodice, Melanie is a gown fit for an air sign. Since an Aquarius bride is the humanitarian of the zodiac, you’ll love that Grace + Ivory supports women’s programs with every dress purchase.
As a Pisces bride, you’re looking for a wedding dress that blurs the lines between fantasy and reality. When it comes to shopping for your dress, you want that gut feeling the first time you put it on (your “this is it” moment!) You want a dress that feels like it’s from another decade, perhaps with an art-deco design. Something ethereal, with sparkle fit for a mermaid.
Channeling dreamy Neptune, we foresee our Kali Dress in your future. An Art Deco design adorned with clear sequins and a fringe-inspired train, Kali is a dress straight from the roaring 20’s. Since a Pisces bride is creative by nature, this is a dress that’ll inspire the rest of your decor.
