One of our favorite decor ideas for vintage or classic weddings is a starry night wedding theme. Starry night weddings revolve around star-themed finds, constellation inspired decorations, and a dark blue and white color palette with metallic silver or gold accents. You’ll want lots of romantic light, like these in jars and these all over your reception.
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 make it modern 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!
