Wedding Accessories and Favors
Continue the celestial theme with your wedding favors. Purchase star-shaped floating candles, place two or three in a square of glittery tulle in one of your wedding colors. Tie it together with a gold or silver ribbon. Homemade star-shaped sugar cookies frosted in or sprinkled with one of your wedding colors and then gift packaged in a cellophane bag and tied with a sparkly ribbon also make a sweet wedding favor. Buy star shaped candy molds and use them to make either candy or soaps and wrap them in tulle and tie it with ribbon matching your wedding colors. Another idea is to wrap store bought chocolates or candies in celestial shapes in navy blue or black tulle and tie with silver and gold cording.
Wedding Reception Music
When selecting your wedding reception music, consider songs with the words ‘moon’ or ‘stars’ in the titles or lyrics. For example, Moon River (Henry Mancini), To the Moon and Back (Savage Garden), Starry, Starry Night (Josh Grobin), etc.
Food is one of the most important features of any gathering. To continue your celestial theme, use star-shaped serving trays for anything from chips to candy. Serve everything you can in the shape of stars. Star cookie cutters come in many sizes and can be used to cut your sandwiches, hors d’oeuvres, cookies, etc. You can even purchase candy and cookie molds, cookie presses, as well as specialty spring form pans and cake pans in star shapes. These can be found at most craft stores in the cake decorating section. For your wedding cake, you might consider having a star shaped cake. An odd shaped cake might be a little expensive, so if you decide to go with a traditional round or square cake you can accent it with edible shimmer powder and sugar stars in navy and gold or silver,
The sky is the limit on what you can do for a Celestial themed wedding. So let your imagination soar! This is your special day, make it a special day for your guests too.
