30 Ideas That Will Make Starry Night Weddings Your Favorite

One of our favorite decor ideas for vintage or classic weddings is a starry night wedding theme. A “Starry Night” wedding revolves around star-themed finds, constellation inspired decorations, and a dark blue and white color palette with metallic silver or gold accents. We love starry night weddings because they’re utterly romantic and incredibly versatile. You can opt for a more vintage starry night wedding by holding the reception in a lavish ballroom with art deco accents. Or, modernize it with a unique venue like a rooftop night wedding reception, complete with dancing under the stars. To show you how beautiful this theme truly is, we’ve rounded up thirty of our favorite handmade finds for inspiration. Scroll down to begin!

BHLDN Decor Ideas for Weddings

1. These floral inspired ideas

The La Vie en Rose collection is inspired by French flower markets from the early 20th century. BHLDN’s curated an assortment of floral decorations and centerpieces will transform a wedding reception into a vintage-inspired botanical garden.

When it comes to decorating with flowers, the most obvious place to start is with your wedding centerpieces. A traditional display is lovely, but don’t be afraid to think outside the vase. Try hanging the Crystalline Chandelier over the table or cluster the Nightfall Votives together and fill them with blooms for a unique wedding centerpiece look.

The Conservatory Envelope Holder is not just for cards. Use it as a centerpiece for the sweetheart table, or as pretty storage for wedding favors. Then, after the big day it becomes a glass display for your preserved bridal bouquet or bridal keepsakes.

The Petal Push-Pops (filled with real bits of rose, lilac and hydrangea) are a fun (and gorgeous) way to send-off the newlyweds. Better still, toss the Blossom Hearts confetti at the end of the wedding ceremony. The confetti is made of handcrafted seed paper, so they can be planted after the big day and bloom into wildflowers.

Do you love the look of vintage china, but not the price point? The Sunday Paper Plates are the perfect compromise. The rose motif and scalloped edges look delicate and sweet when topped with a generous slice of wedding cake, never giving away their budget friendliness to guests as they Instagram their decadence.

Finally, don’t forget to help guests clean-up! The Sunday Paper Napkins are covered in dainty roses, and perfectly sized for cocktail hour or dessert. The napkins also match the aforementioned cake plates for a cohesive reception look.

In love with these vintage inspired paper plates and matching napkins.  It's the look of old china without the price tag! | via BHLDN Decor Ideas |

2. These jewel toned decor ideas

As wedding celebrations move indoors for fall and winter, reception decorations become increasingly important. This year you’ll see decorations gravitating towards deeper colors and more lavish decor.

The Celebration Crinkle Fans and Just Jewels Garlands are as versatile as they are pretty! Hang them overhead on the reception dance floor, as wedding ceremony decor, or scattered on tabletops for dramatic effect.

For a playful end to a picture perfect day, have guests throw XO Confetti in the air. Confetti tossed at weddings = a moment no one forgets.

For a vintage wedding decor look try the Teetotum Honeycombs. Reminiscent of a by-gone era, these 3D paper decorations make a statement wherever they are displayed. They can be reused, too: think dinner party decorations, birthday celebrations, and golden anniversaries…
