Your reception venue is the foundation of your wedding day, but if you don't already have a dream wedding venue in mind, you might be feeling totally stumped about what type of space could work best for your vibe. We don't know about you, but whenever we're in need of a little life reassurance, we turn to our horoscopes and the astrological powers-that-be for a bit of wisdom—or at least a dose of innocent fun. Whether you realize it or not, your zodiac sign can definitely influence your wedding style, and by choosing a venue that's reflective of your sun sign, you're one step closer to creating a celebration that feels truly personal. So if you're wondering where to start in the search for your dream wedding venue, allow the stars to steer you in the right direction.

Aries (March 21–April 19): Performing Arts Theater

As the leader of the zodiac, you have a knack for theatrics and taking charge, which makes this a dream wedding venue for you, Aries. A theater will give you the chance to take your rightful place at center stage, where you naturally shine, while wowing your guests with your unique taste. Choose a historical symphony hall if your style leans a little more classic, or host your wedding at a concert venue with spotlights, uplighting and all the other bells and whistles for something energetic and fun.

Taurus (April 20–May 20): Scenic Vineyard

Taurus, you have an eye for beauty, but you're also incredibly down to earth and practical. Your dream wedding venue is a setting that's both naturally beautiful yet sophisticated, which means a stunning vineyard is the perfect pick for your special day. Indulge in fine wines and gourmet hors d'oeuvres while celebrating al fresco to make the most of your surrounding views.

Gemini (May 21–June 20): Destination Venue

If you're looking to go all-out Gemini, whisking guests away for a surprise destination wedding is the way to go. You're notoriously expressive and ready for adventure, so it only makes sense that you'd turn your wedding into a multi-day celebration where you can pack in as much fun as possible. Whether your dream wedding venue is a European villa or a private rental home on a tropical island, there's no doubt it will be anything short of fabulous.

Cancer (June 21–July 22): Flower-Filled Garden

Cancer, you're no stranger to being a hopeless romantic, and every good fairytale wedding needs an enchanted garden that's just brimming with flowers. Whether you host your wedding beneath a canopy of wisteria or against a backdrop of blooming rose bushes, this dream wedding venue is key to creating your very own 'pinch me' moment. Look for a venue with a wedding suite or cottage on-site where you can spend the morning getting ready with your nearest and dearest.

Find your kind of venue

From barns to ballrooms, discover reception venues that feel like you.

Leo (July 23–August 22): Opulent Castle

A glamorous castle isn't for the faint of heart, but that's why it just might be the dream wedding venue for you, Leo. After all, you've always known how to keep people entertained—and a castle has plenty of space to invite (and impress) everyone in your large circle of friends. You also have a one-of-a-kind air of royalty about you and (dare we say it?) a flair for the dramatic, so you obviously need a venue that's fit for a legend.

Virgo (August 23–September 22): Formal Mansion

As a Virgo, nothing short of perfection will do for your wedding day, and any venue for your zodiac sign needs to live up to your high standards. Formal mansions, estates and ballrooms are all worthy picks as your dream wedding venue. Not only are these sophisticated locations typically filled with meticulous details on a visual level (like crown molding or inlaid hardwood floors), but they provide plenty of opportunities for you to flex your impeccable planning skills when coordinating with vendors or abiding by strict property rules.

Libra (September 23–October 22): Grand Library

Harmony and order are two things you absolutely adore, Libra, which is why a library makes sense as your dream wedding venue. Here, you'll have it all—the symmetrical rows of neatly organized books tap into your logical side, while the library's inherent nature as a gathering place appeals to your social side. Look for a library venue with interesting or historical architectural details, like coffered ceilings, arched windows, grand staircases, skylights or custom art installations to spark conversation.

Scorpio (October 23–November 21): Private Home

Scorpio, you know the power of leaving a little bit to the imagination. A private home is the dream wedding venue for your zodiac sign because 1). it gives you total control over your timeline of events and 2). it's off the beaten path, which feeds into your desire for seclusion and maintaining an air of mystery. Renting a private home is also ideal for a small wedding or elopement, so you won't feel pressured to invite anyone other than your absolute nearest and dearest.

Sagittarius (November 22–December 21): Lodge or Ranch

Saggitarius, you're the curious, fun-loving sign of the zodiac, and you can't resist a good party. So why not throw the ultimate bash by hosting your very own version of a summer camp wedding? Gather all your friends and family for a weekend of laughter, quality time and some friendly competition to boot. Even if many of your guests don't know each other beforehand, they'll go home with tons of memories and a new sense of community, since you're a natural matchmaker. By venturing to a lakeside cabin or mountain lodge for your celebration, you'll satisfy your strong sense of wanderlust, too.

Capricorn (December 22–January 19): Art Museum

You probably know this by now Capricorn, but you're extremely intelligent, ambitious and (slightly) stubborn—and once you decide to do something, you're dead-set on achieving it. An art museum provides the structure and balance that you crave, with a little bit of grandeur and flair, thanks to the in-house artwork and interesting architecture.

Aquarius (January 20–February 18): Trendy Rooftop Space

Aquarians, you have the most wide-ranging style in the zodiac and you thrive on being a trailblazer, so it's clear that no ordinary venue will do for your wedding day. Your taste can sometimes depend on your mood, which isn't a bad thing, but it means that your dream wedding venue needs to be able to match your creative vision. A modern rooftop or airy loft space can be customized to your heart's content, and since these venues are less traditional than others, your wedding is guaranteed to be one that guests will never forget.

Pisces (February 19–March 20): Beachfront Location

You were born for this dream wedding venue, Pisces (after all, you're a water sign and your zodiac symbol is the fish). A gorgeous oceanfront wedding is exactly what your multifaceted personality craves—the neverending waves bring a sense of energy and adventure, but they're also soothing and delicate in their own way. Plus, getting married outdoors will help you feel calm and grounded if you have any last-minute nerves when the wedding day arrives.
