Vows under the Starry Night – Van Gogh Themed Wedding Ideas

Vows under the Starry Night – Van Gogh Themed Wedding Ideas

June 15, 2017

Wedding season is upon us and we’re excited for all the brides, grooms and guests who’ll be having the times of their lives!

With the internet providing endless inspiration for spectacular themes, we wondered, what would it be like to have a Van Gogh Themed wedding?

Imagine what a fairytale it could be, surrounded by your favourite Van Gogh Paintings – Starry Night or Almond Blossoms or maybe Sunflowers? It’d be memorable for sure.

To give you some ideas we’ve pulled together our favorite wedding-meets-Van Gogh re-creations!

1. A Starry Night Spectacle

2. A Midsummer, Sunflowers Dream

Sunflowers by Van Gogh

"You may know that the peony is Jeannin's, the hollyhock belongs to Quost, but the sunflower is mine in a way." - Vincent van Gogh (to Theo), Letter 573, 22 or 23 January 1889


We love how this couple decided to use their favorite painting – The Sunflowers as their wedding theme. From a giant Sunflowers mural to the intimate, outdoor table setting; it really looks like they’re in a dream.

3. Beautiful Almond Blossom Charm

Almond Blossom by Van Gogh

Almond Blossoms was painted in 1890 by Vincent van Gogh in Arles and Saint-Rémy, southern France. A celebration for the birth of his nephew, the serene and beautiful Almond Blossoms represent hope and awakening, and were so special to Van Gogh.


This montage perfectly captures the look, with 7 must have items for an Almond Blossom theme!
