Wedding Beauty Horoscope
March 21 – April 19
Aries girls are expressive and like to share their ideas, tastes and style with everyone around them. You’ll be the put-together center of attention, mixing a flair for the dramatic with tasteful style.
Fire sign Aries loves all eyes on her, and they surely will be in this A-line, drop-waist gown by Edgardo Bonilla. The dress overflows with handmade tulle fringe layering and hand-beaded French lace over nude silk taffeta. A hand-beaded French lace cover-up with a blue silk taffeta bow adds a little more drama. The Aries tiara by Meg Jewelry features crystals and a delicate ram’s horn detail.
Show off your boldness by choosing dramatic makeup that accentuates your eyes with a dark eye shadow and mascara. Line your top lids with a complementary eyeliner in a rich color. Pull the entire look together with a glamorous hairpin or spectacular necklace, but be sure to keep the earrings simple and refined.
April 20 – May 20
Down to earth and pragmatic, Taurus is a cool, calm and collected girl. You have a perfectionist streak, but you are not a prima donna, and your main focus is enjoying yourself.
Bull brides will fall in love with this silk organza sweetheart strapless mermaid gown by Liancarlo that features hand-beaded and embroidered organza flowers throughout and a shirred silk charmeuse waist. Meg Jewelry’s Jamie earrings have a Swarovski crystal sandwiched in between freshwater pearls. The Drew necklace, also by Meg Jewelry, has freshwater pearls and Swarovski crystals and can be worn either with a backdrop or the backdrop can be removed to create a bracelet.
By nature you’re a perfectionist, and your wedding day is no exception. Splurge on a make-up artist and a hair stylist who will be able to give you the look you want. Your best bet is a natural look with neutral makeup in muted colors that complement your skin tone. Add a touch of drama with a unique necklace, but comfort is key for you so keep your hair down and avoid a tightly pinned up ’do.
May 21 – June 20
Known as great communicators, a Gemini girl will love sharing her plans with everyone around. Surround yourself with a close support group when choosing your look.
Fashion-forward Gemini will adore Aimée Lauren’s trendy, yet traditional bias-cut empire gown with a floral halter made of Italian double-faced silk crepe. For a completely new look, she can replace the floral straps and add the Swarovski beaded hoodie. These vintage Swarovski crystal and sterling silver Meg Jewelry earrings make quite a statement. The Chosen hairpin by Enchanted Atelier lends a bit of sparkle.
With chic, modern and often nontraditional tastes, Geminis gravitate toward makeup that is simple and sleek. Try a light lip color with a gloss for slick sheen, and lightly done smoky eyes in a bolder color. Accessorize with a unique necklace.
June 21 – July 22
As someone who thinks with her heart, a Cancer girl will put a lot of thought into her wedding festivities. Sentimental touches such as incorporating family heirlooms will make everything more special.
This sophisticated rouched mermaid gown with ruffled organza skirt by Jenny Lee will suit the more traditional Cancer. Delicate Kyanite earrings and a Zodiac sign necklace with the Cancer sign carved in crystal, both by Anna Sterlikova, won’t overwhelm the exquisite dress.
A classic and natural beauty, Cancer will look and feel best in light makeup using a simple color palette. Stick with subtle lipstick colors and light brown eye shadows. Choose delicate accessories, and make this the centerpiece of your look.
July 23 – August 22
Always in the spotlight, the Leo girl will love being the center of it all at her wedding. Ensure all eyes are on you with a dramatic look from head to toe.
Larger-than-life Leo will love this ivory charmeuse dress with gold chantilly lace by Eugenia Couture. Leo would love this elegantly simple Zodiac sign necklace by Anna Sterlikova, which features the sign of Leo in carved crystal. Swarovski crystal Lioness earrings by Meg Jewelry have a vintage filigree accent.
A smoky eye with dark shadow worn with bright lipstick is the best way to achieve a dramatic look that is unique and bold. Make sure to consult with a make-up artist who can help you choose colors that best complement your skin tone and hair color. Set off the entire ensemble with a pair of earrings that pick up on the embellishments of your outfit.
August 23 – September 22
Classic, elegant and discriminating, Virgo gals love big events and all the hoopla that comes with them. Revel in this time and keep your look simple, so you can enjoy everything else, too.
Cymbeline’s simple but extremely elegant A-line gown in Mikado silk is ideal for Virgos. A chapel-length circular veil with an Alencon lace border by Toni Federici complements the tasteful grace of the dress. The Jackie O bracelet by Meg Jewelry features four strands of lovely freshwater pearls clasped with sterling silver.
Inspired by fashion mavens such as Jackie O and Coco Chanel, you’ll want your look to be perfectly elegant. Keep the makeup natural, and highlight your features with shades of pink and brown. Pearls (perhaps a family heirloom) and a pair of designer sling back shoes complete this timeless look.
September 23 – October 22
Always seeking balance, a Libra girl will want all aspects of her life to work in harmony together. You’ll enjoy finding a theme and incorporating it into your look.
The Museum gown by Lela Rose, featuring laundered satin with tatted lace, will entice and allure the refined Libra. The Esmerelda necklace by Meg Jewelry with its loops of pearls mimics the lace of the gown.
Choose neutral makeup that complements your features and pulls together your entire look. Keep your hair simple with a down ’do style accented by a hairpiece with the same style and stones as your other jewelry. If your outfit has a predominant color, try coordinating your accessories with this hue.
October 23 – November 21
Emotionally engaged and passionate about all things, a Scorpio girl knows what she wants and will work hard to make sure she gets it. Your look reflects this sophisticated flair for drama.
Sexy Scorpio shines in this satin fit and flare gown by Allure Bridals. The embroidered hand-beaded bodice has a deep V-neckline and low back. The Scorpio should select dramatic accessories to accent her dress. The Hanna Kristen three-strand Swarovski crystal necklace, Princess bracelet with Swarovski crystals, Nicole headband with a double line of Swarovski crystals and Pani earrings with vintage Swarovski crystals are certainly spectacular (all by Meg Jewelry).
Show off your style with bright lipstick in a bold hue such as deep red or magenta, and define your eyes with false lashes and dark eyeliner. Complete the look with an accessories ensemble—drop earrings, a dramatic hairpiece and a fierce purse.
November 22 – December 21
A deep thinker with spiritual inclinations, the Sagittarius girl will avoid getting caught up in the details of her wedding, but focus her attention on the bigger picture.
The simplicity of this ivory Italian silk taffeta tea-length dress with an overstock of French polka-dot lace by Stephanie James Couture, along with the peak of blue tulle, will delight the Sagittarius. This 3-inch sling back pump by Mika Inatome allows freedom of movement along with the ability to dance the night away. The freshwater pearl drops from Meg Jewelry will work with almost any pearl accessory. A Toni Federici Fly Away multi-layered veil in Russian tulle completes the look.
A clean and polished look suits the Sagittarius girl. Find a cute dress and matching shoes. Wear minimal makeup in neutral colors, and keep your hair out of your face with a stylish and simple pulled-up hairstyle.
December 22 – January 19
Working hard to achieve results is a hallmark of the Capricorn girl, who may enjoy taking on do-it-yourself projects. Incorporate this attitude by keeping your look chic and simple.
Capricorn wants a sophisticated dress that isn’t overly adorned. This Duchess silk satin gown with a V-neck front, low back and silk organza over-lay train by Mika Inatome is just what you’re looking for.
Consider a traditional look with light makeup that has a punch of color to highlight your best feature, be it your eyes, lips or cheekbones. An uncomplicated hairstyle such as a low ponytail or bun works well for the Capricorn. Simplicity is also key when it comes to accessories—a single strand necklace or pearl earrings are a good fit.
January 20 – February 18
Often idealistic and optimistic, the Aquarius girl is keen on pleasing others as well as herself. Find the best of both worlds by mixing modern and traditional looks.
The refined pleating of the chiffon over satin and the crystal beading and sequin waistband detail of this Alfred Angelo creation will appeal to the stylish Aquarius. The versatile Keelin necklace, freshwater pearls and Swarovski crystals on sterling silver by Meg Jewelry is able to be worn doubled, opera length or draped down the back.
With an eye for accessorizing, Aquarius will have no problem picking out the perfect jewelry. In fact, it might be hard for you to choose with so many options. Add a touch of modernity in your makeup with a colorful bouquet of transparent pastel eye shadows. Keep your hair pulled back to let the rest of your look stand out.
February 19 – March 20
A true romantic with deep-seated intuition, a Pisces girl loves being engaged and the celebration of love that it is all about. Reflect this romance with glam that is sweet and stylish.
Romantic Pisces will treasure this silk duchess satin scoop neck mermaid gown by Jane Wang that is embroidered with silk threads and beaded with Swarovski crystals. Kesha pearl earrings and a Zodiac sign necklace with the Pisces sign carved in crystal, both by Anna Sterlikova, are the perfect accents.
A dreamy, ethereal look is a good fit for the Pisces girl. Shimmering eyes, dewy lips and soft pink cheeks create a picture-perfect romantic look. Add a touch of romance by choosing lace-accented accessories, and wear your hair down in delicate curls for a look that is regal and graceful.
