Engagement Shoot

An engagement shoot that combines Star Wars and Star Trek? Consider it a sneak peek into the best wedding [4] ever.

If You Can't Invite AT-ATs, Photoshop Them In

This couple, Katherine and Floyd, weren't able to accommodate the armed transports in their Virginia wedding [7], so they edited 'em in instead!

Starry Invitations

Star confetti is a nice touch if you're aiming for a glamorous, galaxy-like Star Wars invite.

Bridesmaids' Dresses

When it comes to dressing your best gals, get creative! This bride chose dresses made from Star Wars fabric [11], and we have to say — the ladies look fabulous.

Chewbacca Pocket Square

If this isn't the cutest couple, we don't know who is. The bride actually hid a Chewbacca in the groom's jacket pocket, and he ended up wearing it as his "pocket square" for the entire wedding [14]. It's only fitting, considering they play a game at home where they hide Chewbacca figurines in different places for the other to find.

Bride's Bouquet

We spy a mini Princess Leia hidden in the flowers — such a cute idea to steal!

Cuff Links

It's all about the details, and no Star Wars fan should go without his special cuff links [18] on the big day.

Reception Welcome Table

There are two things to love about this setup: playing on the force by asking guests to sign the wedding [19] mat, and the playful stormtrooper rings.

Character Appearance

An appearance from at least one of the characters is a must — in this case, Darth Vader was the ring bearer, and everyone got a kick out of it.

Lego Ring Holders

Star Wars and Legos? Doesn't get much better than that . . . except when you use the figurines to hold your precious wedding [24] rings.

Wedding Rings

Speaking of, you can't have a Star Wars wedding [27] without the perfect wedding rings [28], now can you?

Music

It wouldn't be a party without incorporating some of the dramatic Star Wars tunes into your day. A couple of ideas: "Han Solo and the Princess" for the ceremony entrance and "The Throne Room" for the exit.

Photo Fun

The only thing as important as the day is securing a fun-loving photographer who knows how to capture the spirit of your day. We love how this bride used a "force choke" to lift the groom and groomsmen off their feet.

Table Names

Genius-idea alert: naming reception tables after your favorite Star Wars characters.

Reception Decor

Midnight-blue sequin tablecloths and gold stars are a classy but fun way to play up the theme.

Centerpieces

Stormtrooper mason jars? Check. A reference to Cloud City? Double check. Looks like the perfect Star Wars centerpiece if there ever was one.

Glassware

Keep the fun going by using glasses only Star Wars-lovers will appreciate.

Guest Book

What a great keepsake. Ask guests to sign their names on a Millennium Falcon poster [37] as a way to remember the big day.

Photo-Booth Fun

We love how simple but sweet this idea is for a photo-booth setup: a star garland plus a few props and character masks.

Props

Could these "I love you" pennant flags [40] be any more appropriate for a Star Wars wedding [41]? Use them in the photo booth or ask guests to wave them when you walk down the aisle.

Games

Take a cue from this wedding [42] and create Star Wars-themed board games — like R2-D2 Operation, Clone 4 (a version of Connect 4), Star Wars Guess Who, and Escape From the Death Star — as an exciting way to engage guests.

Lightsaber Candles

Who need fancy candles when you can decorate your wedding [45] with lightsaber candlesticks [46]?

Cake Topper

Sure, they'd never get married, but have you seen a more adorable cake topper than this Ewok-Stormtrooper one? Wait, maybe you have [47].

The Cake

Is this not the most epic Star Wars wedding [50] cake you've ever seen? Not to mention it's so pretty, too!

Lightsaber Cake Knife

Copy this cake knife, made from a lightsaber, for a cool touch.

Dessert Table

If cake's not your thing, set up a Star Wars dessert table [54] — it'll be a hit, guaranteed.

Cocktail Hour

How great are these Death Star ice cubes? We have a feeling your guests will be just as captivated by them as we are.

Straws

The best thing about these Star Wars straws [56] (besides their cute look, obviously) is that you can get them customized with your names on one side and the wedding [57] date on the other.

Garter

Naturally, you need something for a geeky garter [58] toss! This Star Wars one [59] is all kinds of fun.

Matches

Customize Star Wars matches to use either as wedding [61] favors or, in this case, for midnight wedding sparklers.

Wedding Favors

There's no shortage of geeky wedding favors [63], but sending guests home with Star Wars treats is something they won't soon forget.

Lightsaber Send-Off

There's only one way to end the night — with a lightsaber send-off, of course!

Lightsaber Send-Off

We love this one, too.

Last but not least, the key to a once-in-a-lifetime Star Wars wedding [67] is . . . fun! Amid the craziness of throwing a wedding [68], don't forget to let loose and soak in the whole wonderful event.
