Can Your Star Sign Determine Your Wedding Flowers?
Whether you believe in horoscopes or not, it is thought that we all have specific characteristics based on which month of the year we were born. Most of us know our star sign and each sign is known to have colours that are deemed to be the star signs favourite. Why not choose your colour scheme or wedding flowers based on the colours that dominate your star sign to make it more personal to you? That is, if you haven’t already subconsciously chosen them without even knowing it!
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Colour: Black / Brown
Capricorns feel in control when they’re sporting the colour black which is necessary because they feel like they have so much to accomplish in both their work and personal lives. Of course, it’s difficult to have a black colour scheme when it comes to wedding planning but darker colours can certainly look amazing!
Flowers: Instead of wedding flower centerpieces, why not display foliage and twigs which are in abundance. Not only will this look incredibly quirky but it will also save you a fortune on wedding flowers! These in contrast with a backdrop of fairy lights will look absolutely spectacular. You can even spray some twigs gold to give it a bigger wow factor.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Colour: Blue / Yellow
Aquarians are known for wanting to help the planet and often live eco-friendly lifestyles. With blue representing the sky and yellow representing the sun, we think this is a perfect colour scheme for those under the Aquarius star sign.
Flowers: Iris, Myosotis, Delphinium, lobelia, Sunflowers, Daffodils, Yellow Billy Balls, Yellow Ranunculus, Yellow Roses, Yellow Crapsedia and Centaurea Cyanus.
Pices (Feb 19 – March 20)
Colour: Pale Pinks / Purples
Those born under the Pices sign are filled with love and compassion and a desire to help others. With pink being the colour of love, it’s only natural that they are drawn to this colour.
Flowers: Pink Roses, Freesia, Gladiolus, Sweet Pea, Gardenia, Lavender, Orchids, Iris, Clematis, Passion Flower, Aster and thistle.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Colour: Red / Orange
With Aries being a fire sign, it makes sense that their dominating colour is red. Aries are full of enthusiasm and confidence and so it only makes sense that there colour is bold, just like them.
Flowers: Red Roses, Amaryllis, Tulips, Snapdragon and Red Berry Foliage.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus’s strive for success with a determination like no other and with green being representative of growth, it’s no wonder they are drawn to this colour.
Flowers: Chrysanthemum, Orchids, Hydrangea and Eucalyptus
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Colour: Light green / Grey / Yellow
Gemini’s are known for having a few different sides to them. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing as it gives them the ability to see things from both angles and as such, they are able to compromise so that everyone is happy. Nothing is black and white for the Gemini and it’s the grey areas in between that Gemini’s love to see.
Flowers: Chrysanthemum, Orchids, Hydrangea, Calla Lily, Dusty Miller, Silver Brunia Balls, Yellow Billy Balls, Yellow Ranunculus, Yellow Roses and Yellow Craspedia.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer Signs crave perfection and simplicity which draws them to the colour white. It’s pure and minimalist which is what they’re all about. Combining the white with ferns and other foliage will give an amazing contrast.
Flowers: Calla Lillies, White Roses, White Peonies, Dusty Miller and White Orchids.
Leo (July 23 – Aug 22)
Colour: Yellow / Gold / Orange
Being a fire sign, it’s only natural that oranges, yellows and golds are all associated with Leo’s. They represent the warm nature of the Leo.
Flowers: Yellow Roses, Sunflowers, Daffodils, Begonia, Canna, Orchids, Hyacinth, Yellow Dahlia, Yellow Marigolds and Yellow Zinnia.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sept 22)
Colour: Pale yellow

Flowers: Yellow Rose, Dusty Miller, Yellow Dahlia, Yellow Zinnia and Yellow Marigolds.
Libra (Sept 23 – Oct 22)
Colour: Green / Blue
The Libra is a sign that perfectly balances every aspect of their life. A very calming force much like the colour blue. Blue is known for its calming capabilities, you just have to think of running water or rain hitting your window, many people find it calming and comforting much like the presence of a Libra.

Sagitarrius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
The most adventurous of all the star signs. Sagittarians are always on the search for the meaning of life and love traveling to new places and experiencing new things. They will travel the seven seas to find new adventures and that is why Blue dominates their star sign.
