Whether you're a traditional bride or you like something unique, the stars know just what you need.

When it comes to planning your big day, no detail is too small. You have to think about the seating chart, the reception playlist, the cake, and the flowers—and that's not even counting which bridesmaids are walking down the aisle with which groomsmen! Of course, there's one detail that's more important to get right than any other: The wedding dress.

Choosing the right gown is about more than pretty fabrics and chic styles; it's about finding the dress that allows your natural beauty to shine bright. But with so many styles and silhouettes to choose from, it can be tricky to narrow things down. So, why not look to the stars for some guidance? Ahead, an astrologer shares the wedding dress style you should wear, based on your zodiac sign. Are you more of a classic A-line or a funky and flirty jumpsuit? Read on to find out.

As an Aries, you'll be just as confident, commanding, and cool on your wedding day as you are any other day.

You have bold tastes and love showing off whenever you get the chance. But you're also someone who's always on the move during social gatherings, so you need a wedding dress style that won't slow you down.

That's why we think a vintage tea-length dress is the perfect fit. Stopping just above the ankles, you won't have to worry about tripping over your train while you race your bridesmaids to the dance floor.

Taurus: Sweetheart

When it comes to timeless and traditional bridal style, nobody does it quite like you do, Taurus!

A lover of all things luxurious and over-the-top, it's no surprise that you're the type of bride who shops without a budget. You want to look effortlessly trendy and classically chic at the same time. That's why you'll love a classic sweetheart neckline.

The heart shape of this silhouette speaks to your Venus-ruled romantic side and is one of the most flattering bridal styles. It's also the perfect base to accessorize with plenty of bling.

Scorpios aren't afraid to take risks with fashion, and you're also not against embracing your sultry side.

You'll still get the drama of the full train walking down the aisle, but the unexpected asymmetry in the front will surprise and wow your guests. It also leaves room for your shoes to play a major role in the whole look.

Sagittarians are the adventurers of the zodiac. You love exploring new foods, places, and styles and aren't looking to wear a typical wedding dress on your big day.

So, when you go dress shopping, check out today's trendy separates. Mix an ethereal satin skirt with a form-fitting tank or go for a flowy, tulle bottom and a romantic embroidered top—the options are endless.
