And we say heck yes! Even though the galaxy wedding trend is trending off, we still love the classic inspiration touches that can still be brought in on a wedding day to celebrate a love of the stars. Whether you're getting married at a planetarium or just grew up wanting to be an astronaut, the "final frontier" continues to capture our imaginations and hearts with celestial whimsy, so we've rounded up the Top 10 of the best galaxy wedding ideas out there for you to swoon over!
