zodiac wedding: cancer

Our zodiac signs series continues today with this lovely lavender wedding inspiration board inspired by the traits of brides born between June 22nd and July 22nd: Cancer!

Zodiac Wedding Inspiration: Cancer / purple, mint, & yellow

Brides born under the Cancer sign are delicate and emotional creatures. Prone to moodiness, they are quick to retreat and have difficulty sharing their innermost feelings. These brides are the first to laugh, the first to cry, and kindness and gentleness defines their everyday interactions. They are sensitive, easily hurt, but also quick to show their affection and share sympathy with others!

For whatever reason purple feels like the perfect color for this bride. Purple can either be a joyous or moody color – much like people born under the Cancer zodiac sign. The delicacy and emotional nature of these brides is represented by the beautiful calligraphy drapery and it also shows how Cancers can hide behind their shell.

If this is your sign you might often find yourself having difficultly making decisions (much like the other water signs), so for your wedding palette don’t be afraid to mix in lots of colors. This inspiration board has a dominant purple color family but also contains hints of mint, yellow, light green, and peach!
