Ahead of the official cinema release of perhaps one of the most anticipated movies this side of the millenium, I’m sure there are a fair few movie buffs out there just bursting with excitement as to what feasts for the eyes the new release will indeed bring.

 

As a family of Star Wars lovers, we too cannot wait and this got me to thinking….. As a supplier to the wedding market, would the inner geek in each of us rejoice at the thought of a all out intergalactic galaxy far, far away shindig of a wedding?

 

No matter how much we LOVE the Force, is a themed wedding actually for you?  In celebration of this epic tale, here at Words To Glow we want to show you just how you can give a nod to the geek; and still pull off a tasteful and classy wedding to remember.

 

Invitations

Star Wars Themed Wedding Invites

Geeky Star Wars Wedding Invites

 

Perhaps only one of only a couple of areas where you can really pander to the child within. Here you can choose to keep it classy and reserved as in the gorgeous example of the black and gold star themed invite shown; or let a little humour and light heartedness shine through with this fabulous Yoda inspired stationery.

Star Wars Wedding Aisle Runner

 

Incorporating a nod to the films in the actual wedding ceremony itself is actually very easy to do. I love the way these replica Light Sabers are used as both pew ends and to add a pop of fun colour to the aisle. And of course, they are the perfect sword replacement for a fabulous guard of honour (and of course, a great photo opportunity also!)

 

This aisle runner is simply ingenious and would certainly prove to be one of the key talking points of your wedding.

Star Wars Galaxy Inspired Wedding Reception

 

LOVE wedding letters against starlit backdrop

 

For your wedding reception, think ‘galaxy’ and ensure lots of key lighting options – uplighters, down lights, strobes and black starlit backdrops all invoke images of a galaxy far, far away without being tacky.

 

Wedding marquee letters can be used to spell your love for one another or if you really want, some key quote from your favourite film of the saga.

 

Space Inspired Wedding Reception

 

Added touches such as paper lanterns decorated to resemble far away planets or these great paper stars available from local home stores can be used as alternatives to floral table arrangements and can also look amazing suspended from up high.

Remember to name each of your tables after a key character in the Star Wars movies in keeping with your theme and with all the movie memorabilia available to purchase at the moment it will be easy to include Star Wars favours for each of your guests on the day.

The Wedding Cake

Again, the Wedding Cake is an aspect of the wedding where you can afford to let your geek flow to full abandon! From fabulous cake toppers to a out and out Star Wars Millenium Falcon ….these cakes look too good to eat!

The Bridal Party – what to wear

For your bridal attire, remember to keep it simple. With not a spiral side bun in sight, we can still channel Princess Leia with a gorgeous and flowy satin or chiffon bridal gown such as this beauty. This classy cut, made all the more WOW by the addition of a simple yet beautiful crystal belt and shoulder appliqué detail looks just stunning.

 

Let the dress do all the talking and sweep your hair back from your face in a understated yet classy chignon or low bun, adorned with a crystal hair clip.

Star Wars Inspired Bridal Belt

 

Bridal accessories can be easily customised to your theme as in this great Swarovski crystal Storm Trooper belt/sash. Very clever and understated.

 

Star Wars Bow Tie

Star Wars Cuff Links

 

For the groom, how about these great Star Wars cufflinks and swanky bow tie? Fabulous!

 

It’s All in the Detail

 

Infact, there are tons of additional touches that can be incorporated into this theme that will really set the scene for the whole day. The mood board below shows just a few of these to great effect. I personally love the idea of the alternative Star Wars Guest Book, the Star Wars macaroons and the Star Wars photo booth!

 

Let’s face it. Who wouldn’t want to get silly, don a Darth Vader helmet and strike a pose once they’ve had a couple! Ahhhmmm… me please :o)

 

Star Wars Wedding Theme Ideas

 

On the whole, it’s the small touches that make a themed wedding come together and make it a talking point for years to come. I’m sure you will agree.
