Star struck: cosmic style for alt brides


Love the enduring star trend emblazoned across bridal wear and accessories? We do too! Here we've curated some of the most celestial pieces from across the universe. Star puns aside, we hope you enjoy this heavenly bounty and become star struck like us...

Bridal wear and veils

Whimsical, light and stunningly pretty, the 'Star Crossed' veil by awesome bridal veils and accessories designer W Collective (main image and above) is just perfection. The veils come in three sizes: Fingertip (38"), Chapel (80") and Cathedral (100") and cost from £85-£155. They also make veils with planets and galaxies on too. Cosmic!

The Ether dress is a sight to behold: seventies boho styling in classic champagne or stylish midnight blue...it's totally dreamy. £435 from Needle and Thread.

The star details on these uber funky Couture Company gowns are e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g! This company (a Vintage Bride favourite) really knows no bounds when it comes to creativity. Colour, design, sparkle and uniqueness abound! Dresses are made to order with plenty of cool accessories to add some extra je ne sais quoi.

Lucy Can't Dance (below) is other indie wedding designer that rocks our world and the Afterglow dress is pure ethereal gorgeousness! Made from stunning firework effect lace with a delicate, scalloped train, it is one of LCD's mix & match slip dresses so there is an abundance of customisation options to choose from with 25 sample colours! Price on request.

If you fancy something really different then why not plump for a pink tulle 50s style dress with star design emblazoned across it, £254.70 from German bridal wear designer Der Sonnen Pilz, or perhaps the silver vintage style wedding dress that looks as fine as gossamer thread (£889)...


The Orion gown by E&W Couture is perfect for indie brides that want to sparkle! Made from a nude tulle covered in glitter moons, stars and unicorns, it is whimsical perfection! There is the option to customise straps and slip. Price on application.

Heavenly hair accessories

The Estelle vintage crystal star wedding hair comb, £195, from Susie Warner is the perfect complement to soft 1930s waves...

The Orion crystal crown (below) by Debbie Carlisle will add a soft, celestial glamour to your wedding look. Her handmade designs are just beautiful, £232.

Gorgeously galactic jewellery

When it comes to jewellery, there are so many stunning star-inspired options. We particularly love this little pretty by Ferkos Fine Jewellery. The Star Diamond ring is a 14k gold wedding band set with diamonds and comes in white gold, rose gold or 14k gold. RoseRedRoseWhite on Etsy has the prettiest little white Zirconian earrings (£37) which are delicate, yet dazzling. And finally, the Celestia bracelet by Carat London in sterling silver and white gold is inspired by bright starry nights and is just divine.


Say it with stationery

Wedding invites don't get much more atmospheric than the Starry Starry Night wedding stationery by Hawthorne and Ivory. This moon and stars watercolour design in 300gsm hammered gesso art cardstock, is customised with your details plus there's the option of adding envelope stickers and return address stamps too. Quote available on request.

We also think the Starry Night design by LettersfromEmily on Etsy is just perfect for star-crossed lovers. From £40 upwards.

Seriously starry shoes

If the shoe fits (and has a great big dazzler of a star on it) then it must be the one! The Charlotte Olympia star pump is certainly a show-stopper. We kinda love that it's navy too.

And there's more... the 80s inspired Lucky Stars sandals from Forever Soles ($190) are just so darn Vegas!

All in the details

How about adding some galactic styling to the reception with this stunning neon moon light available to hire by Elizabeth James Events? Or these engraved wooden star place names by Bombus (£9.95) to add a boho star vibe and provide a pretty keepsake for guests? Available from Notonthehighstreet.co.uk.
