50 Romantic Moon & Stars Wedding Theme Ideas

Hi, loves! Emma here! OK — I’m sitting here, sipping on coffee, listening to my favorite version of Moondance, and dreaming about the best wedding themes coming up this spring and summer. My favorite: the moon themed wedding trend. I’m so enamored by this trend that I’m calling it the biggest trend for 2018 weddings. Starry night weddings come in at a close second, and you’ll see many similarities in the two themes as outlined in this post. The vintage / Art Deco / Gatsby themed wedding inspo is strong in this one; we envision a rich color palette of navy blue or black with tons of shimmery gold metallic. Glitz, glamour, dancing under the moonlight, and tons of romantic candlelight. Imagine walking down the aisle in a night wedding (yeah, it’s a thing!) and having your bridesmaids carry candle lanterns instead of flowers, and fill your tables with these wine bottle lights.

Does that sound utterly dreamy to you? Me too.

For a moon themed wedding, we’re finding couples mixing it up a bit: a moon themed wedding can revolve around just the moon or moon phases; it can connect with moon and stars, planets, galaxies, or constellations. Or you can skip over the astronomy lesson and head right over to an underlying theme: “Over the Moon”, “Love You To The Moon (And Back)”, “Fly Me To The Moon”, or “Moondance”, as just a few possibilities.

In today’s post, we’re sharing our favorite moon themed wedding ideas: moon engagement rings, backdrops, moon wedding invitations, decorations, moon themed wedding cake toppers, art prints, favors, jewelry, and much more. All handmade!

This is definitely a wedding theme with tons of possibilities; read on to see our list! Enjoy!

Moon Themed Wedding / Moon & Stars Wedding Ideas

For a moon themed wedding, decide first what type of underlying theme you wish to have. Want to incorporate zodiac signs? Starry night skies? Planets and galaxies? “Love you to the moon”? Moon phases? Moon River? Fly me to the moon?
