August 2013 Wedding Astrology & Style Inspiration
By Allie Couch, Laughing Pig Astrology

This August brings with it a tame Leo attitude and a style to fit. Venus, the planet of love and marriage, is settling in Virgo, an earth sign dedicated to service and refinement. This will temper the magnanimous Leo sun, sign of royalty and leadership. Leo’s need for pride always surfaces, so a newly designed family crest or logo is an element that could make an appearance. The feminine Venus in Virgo gives us styling that is focused on quality and perfection, yet still understated. The elegant Water Snake, which is the current Chinese year animal, will only settle for an event that oozes with sophistication and beauty. The name I’ve given this combination of cosmo qualities is Botanical Glam. The personality of a marriage this month will take on similar characteristics as the above descriptions.

1.  This Spring 2014 Oscar de la Renta wedding gown fits perfectly with the royal, sophisticated, feminine, and understated theme for this month’s astro style.

2.  A modern crest for wedding branding is an element that most Leo weddings could have some fun with.

3.  A gold cake that is elegant and simple is perfect for a wedding this month.

4.  Botanical floral design in earthy gold goblets is perfect for an understated Leo event.

5.  A vintage ring that is an heirloom or family treasure will make a Leo couple feel that they have an important bloodline.

6.  Botanical escort cards in gold mercury votives are a great idea for this wedding style.

7.  This glamorous gold BBJ charger will add the perfect amount of subtle sparkle for a 2013 Leo wedding.

8.  A beautiful white and cream botanically styled bouquet fits the bill nicely.

9.  A sophisticated BHLDN beaded hair piece is a lovely touch for this botanical glam theme.

10.  La Tavola offers a beautiful sequin chevron stripped linen to glam up this otherwise earthy style.

11.  Handmade bridesmaids gifts of bath salts and bubbles are the perfect hands-on Venus in Virgo touch.
