May the Love Be with You

Atlanta, GA

Everything about this Star Wars-themed wedding had us feeling the love. The sweetheart table boasted a Darth Vader and Stormtrooper helmet (in addition to lavish crimson florals). The bride’s lightsaber bouquet, along with the geode wedding cake (complete with Star Wars-figure cake toppers), had our hearts beating at “lightspeed.”  On-theme catering and an imaginative photo op for the bride and groom were a few of the additional details that made this wedding a four-star experience.

Duel to the Death Love

Orlando, FL

For Star Wars’ lovers, a lightsaber duel is just as romantic as that first dance. This bride and groom made their fairytale (or sci fi) wedding come true with gorgeous starlit backdrops, planetary centerpieces, and plenty of candlelight. Lightsaber props made for a perfect late night photo op. While this “elegant weapon for a more civilized age” might conjure scenes of incoming blaster bolts, we can’t help thinking of breathtaking weddings and true love.

Sign Your Name Among the Stars 

Denton, TX

This rustic wedding won us over with its Star Wars details. Cocktail napkins featured Yoda’s most inspirational quote, “Do or do not do; there is no try,” motivating us to head to the bar area. We certainly did not mind the nod to Tolkien, either. We especially love how the wedding guest book took an unexpected turn with a Millenium Falcon puzzle board. We’d readily traverse the cosmos looking for love like this.

Forget Table Numbers, Show us C-3PO

Rosemont, IL

While seating charts normally organize tables by numbers, this one used various Star Wars’ characters to direct guests to their seats. Dessert was just as out of this world with Star Wars-themed cookies, including our two favorite droids. Don’t let a Jedi fool you: these are definitely the cookies we’re looking for.

Held Hostage to Love

Santa Barbara, CA

Flanked by stormtroopers, this bride and groom were happily held hostage at the marriage altar — with no escape in sight. Other on-theme ceremony details included lightsaber bouquets for the bride and bridesmaids, along with a welcome sign in the style of the Star Wars’ opening crawl. After exchanging vows, these star-crossed lovers continued the celebration with a Star Wars-themed wedding reception. Table centerpieces featured glass-orb terrariums boasting (no, not plants) Star Wars action figures. And while no actual Sith were on hand to seduce guests toward the Dark Side, signature cocktails with names like Endor and The Force tempted guests to party all night long.
