May the Fourth weddings… I love them! In fact I love any themed wedding, I may even dress the part if asked. May 4th is on a Friday this year, which is a double win as your guests won’t mind too much taking the Friday off.. extended weekend.. and most venues are cheaper on a Friday, compared to a Saturday. So i’ve put together a little inspo, if you and your love are Star Wars fans and want to incorporate a bit of ‘Far Far Away Galaxy Chic” to your big day!
“You’re The Obi Wan For Me”
There is a very fine line between ‘tacky star wars wedding’ and ‘chic star wars wedding’ the idea is just to use little touches of it here and there, too much can make it look the 8 years old’s birthday your mum was too stinjy to put on.
“I Love You To The Death Star And Back”
Use a Light Saber to hold your bouquet, or this lovely Death Star vase for your centerpieces, could even use a storm trooper head, darth vader mask or mini R2-D2
“The Longing You Seek Is Not Behind You, It Is In Front Of You”
Again with the subtlety.. Have you’re rings engraved, have a princess Leia up-do or inspired gown, for the groom some themed cuff links. Or.. Go all out and have your groomsmen in Wookie suits (the latter is probs not advised, especially for a summer wedding)
“May The Love Be With You”
As for favors, you could pair a star wars cookie with a personalised cookie in a little baggie with a cute swing tag.
“Compassion, which I would define as unconditional love, is essential to a Jedi’s life. So you might say that we are encouraged to love”.
