If you have been a fan of Star Wars trilogies since childhood, then probably a wedding with this theme will be like a dream come true for you two! The intergalactic atmosphere and all the other specific elements of the Star Wars universe can be easily transposed to your wedding if you make a plan in advance. So, how do you envision your special day? Check this article for some cool ideas!
1. Star Wars wedding ideas – A few steps to bring “the force” to your wedding
The Star Wars universe can be described as full of suspense, adventurous, mythical and even funny sometimes, with space elements and mysterious planets – elements that made the franchise so famous around the world. So, if you have decided to have a Star Wars themed wedding and you don’t know where to start, consider all the elements that represent this fascinating world. Reflect the movie’s themes in all you do – attirement, decorations, food and so on.
Here are a few ideas for your mythical Star Wars themed wedding:
- The perfect venue
The location is perhaps one of the most important aspects of a themed wedding – the chosen space and the way it is decorated can decide the overall atmosphere of the event. The warm seasons are recommended, because this way you can have the ceremony in nature. Moreover, you can take the experience to the next level by choosing one of the destinations where the trilogies were filmed. If you want to make sure you’ll find the ideal place for you, don’t worry – our experienced consultants can take care of everything to the last detail.
- Fun decorations
When it comes to decorations, the sky is the limit! Be creative and get inspired by your favorite parts in the movie, then translate them into your wedding. The characteristic elements can be reflected in the centerpieces, in the floral arrangements, in the food and wherever you think it would fit in accordance with your vision.
Posters, for example, are a great idea – they won’t cost you much and can be very effective. When it comes to table setting, choose a medieval design with SF accents; greet your guests in a cute way with specific figurines placed on tables, such as baby Yoda, Stormtroopers or R2-D2. At the entrance, offer your guests lightsaber balloons or glow sticks – a fun idea that will delight anyone, whether they are Star Wars fans or not.
- Guests’ dress code
For a more authentic atmosphere, it is necessary to initiate a dress code and to announce your guests in advance. To make things as simple as possible for everyone, you can opt for certain colors, inspired by the saga’s palette: black, white, gray, blue or red. Those who want to get more involved in the wedding theme can impersonate their favorite characters.
- Bride and groom’s outfits
If you can be more lenient when it comes to the dress code for guests, this is another story when it comes to your attire. Find your inspiration in the weddings of George Lucas’ trilogy, such as the ones of Anakin Skywalker and Padme Amidala or Han Solo and Leia Organa. Or, you can wear both stormtrooper or Darth Vader masks. If you want to blend in some traditional elements as well, the bride can wear a white dress in boho style, a wildflowers bouquet and natural makeup, while the groom can opt for a black and white suit or inspired by Jedi colors.
- Photo shooting
Don’t miss the chance to have the most awesome photo album in the whole Galaxy! Also, you can install a photo booth to keep your guests entertained.
2. Star Wars themed wedding – Amazing destinations for a ceremony far, far away
So, for the most adventurous fans, our advice for you is to get your special day to the next level by choosing one of the places where your favorite moments were filmed. Your Star Wars wedding can be epical if you choose one of these unique destinations:
- Puzzlewood, UK
Lost paths, mossy rocks, crooked trees. No wonder that this place, located in Dean Forest in Wales, was chosen as a set for some of the Star Wars scenes. “The Force Awakens” was the movie that really put Puzzlewood on the wedding map. One of the iconic scenes is where Rey meets Kylo Ren.
- Plaza de Espana, Spain
When Padme and Anakin arrived in Theed in a square outside the palace, they were actually in a square in Plaza de Espana, built for the 1929 Ibero-American Exposition. For the movies “Clone Attack” and “Phantom Menace” the plaza was expanded in post-production to form a full circle, and the building was modified to include Naboo’s green towers and domes. This place in Spain sure looks like the perfect setting for a Star Wars wedding!
- Dubrovnik, Croatia
This beautiful medieval place appears in “The Last Jedi” under the name Canto Bight, a Star Wars version of a poker city. Another famous production that was filmed in this town was Game of Thrones. Being so famous, Dubrovnik might be very crowded, especially in the summer season, so our recommendation is to avoid the summer months if you want to have your Star Wars themed wedding there.
Star Wars trilogies have delighted many generations for more than four decades with new adventures and iconic characters. And the story keeps going, both on the big screens and at the weddings of fans around the world who want to bring the Star Wars universe to life.
