The Premier of Star Wars Themed Weddings

Spoiler Alert! We’re about to let you in on how to throw the best Star Wars themed wedding of all time.

The release of the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens is here! And yes, everyone is talking about it. This movie is so anticipated and talked about that it’s even taken over the wedding world. Oh yeah, that’s right; Star Wars weddings are happening!

But let’s be honest, planning, and executing a Star Wars themed wedding is tough. You’re walking the line between throwing a kid’s party or hosting a super nerd-a-thon. So, we’re here to help you plan the perfect Star Wars themed wedding with these classy, chic, kind of nerdy ideas.

Engagement Pictures

“I think you can’t bear to let a gorgeous guy like me out of your sight.”
Han Solo

Leave it to Han Solo to say something flattering about himself, but hey, who could blame him? He made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs. But back to the main point, why not jump in on the Star Wars theme early with your engagement pictures?

Why not use a chalkboard and write a Star Wars reference or quote? For example, you could use the lines that were exchanged between Leia and Han, before he is torn away from her by Stormtroopers.
Leia: “I love you”
Han: “I know”

Or, you can dress up as Han Solo and Princess Leia, grab a pair of blasters, and zoom around in the Millennium Falcon saving the galaxy. The options are endless here. So get out there and have some fun with it. I mean really, when else do you get to dress up as awesome characters and take engagement photos?

Out-of-this-Galaxy Invitations

“A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…”


Stun your guests and let them in on the type of event you’ll be planning with an out-of this-galaxy invitation. But, to make sure your guests know this is still a formal occasion, keep your invitation chic and classy. Check out this beautiful invitation designed by the WickedPress shop. This would work perfect for your wedding: classy, chic, and out of this world. If you must include the Death Star somewhere on the invitation, I’m sure you can always find a way.

Darth Vader Cufflinks

“It’s a trap.”
-Admiral Ackbar


Not wanting to go too over the top with the Star Wars theme? No problem, check out these awesome Darth Vader cufflinks available for purchase from our friends at TheBlueAgaveStudio. It’s a simple way to include the dark side on your big day.

Character Appearances Throughout the Event

“The force is strong with this one”
Darth Vader

No Star Wars themed wedding could ever be complete without the appearance of some key players. How cool would it be for your guests to snap some pictures with Darth Vader or Chewie? We agree, pretty cool! Or, you could set up a photobooth with plenty of costumes to let your guests dress up and get their pictures taken.

New Take on Your Wedding Pictures

“Use the force, Luke”
Obi Wan

What better way to spice up your wedding pictures than photoshopping in some AT-ATs to your pictures! You and your new groom can be standing side by side with lightsabers in your hand, ready to save the galaxy together! Nothing could be more romantic, am I right?

The Imperial Bridal March

“Do or do not...there is no try.”

Forget the classic bridal march or Pachelbel's Canon in D, why not make a grand entrance with the Imperial March playing in the background? I mean, sure, it sounds a bit menacing but it will get a few laughs and grins from your guests. The Imperial March will show your true might as a couple. And there are great versions of this song, so feel free to search around until you find the one you like. Just listen to this version, we got goosebumps from it!

Character Reference Instead of Table Numbers

“I’ve got a bad feeling about this.”
Basically everyone in Star Wars


When it comes to decorating your reception tables, forget the number system. Give your tables a splash of Star Wars love by labelling the tables based on characters’ names or the groups of people: Jedi, the Droids, Stormtroopers, etc. How cool would it be to have a competition between tables, such as who has the best dance moves the Jedis, the Droids, or Darth Vader? And you can give each table a prop based upon their characters.

Millennium Falcon Guestbook

“Hello. I don’t believe we have been introduced. R2-D2? A pleasure to meet you. I am C-3PO, Human-Cyborg Relations”


Well if you’re going to have a Star Wars themed wedding, why not have your very own Star Wars themed guest book? The ShapeofLove sells these chic guest books that will be perfect on your big day. And make sure you have a bubbly guest book attendant to have your guests smiling as soon as they arrive.

A Stellar Wedding Cake

“Greed can be a very powerful ally”
Qui-Gon Jinn


You’re absolutely right, Qui-Gon Jinn. Greed can be a great ally, especially when you’re greedy for cake! Star Wars up your wedding cake with cute figurines or with the Death Star made out of fondant. Everyone loves cake, so make sure yours really captures the awesomeness that is Star Wars and your wedding.

Lightsaber Send-off

“Remember the force will be with you, always.”
Obi-Wan Kenobi

Forget the sparklers, the confetti, the roses, the whatever else people throw at you while you’re leaving the wedding. Get sent off in the most perfect way—with lightsabers. Give your guests lightsabers to raise above you as you and your new honey leave. It’s a new twist on the traditional send-off and one you (and your guests) will never forget.

So, are you ready to throw the best Star Wars themed wedding? Why, of course you are! And for all those who need to be refreshed on their Star Wars knowledge, here’s an adorable three-year-old’s take on one of the world’s most popular movie series..

So until next time, remember to trust yourself, use Inspherio, and let the force be with you!
