Pretty in Pink Comic Book Lovers’ Wedding with Star Wars References

It was really important to Sarah and Parker that on their May wedding, they felt the most ‘them’ that they had ever felt. “We wanted the day to be beautiful while also being comfortable,” the bride began. “For us it meant – elegant, but simple. Easy. It was more about incorporating all the pieces that were significant than having an official theme, but if I had to put it into a few words – personal, local, and real.”

As Sarah had worked in the wedding industry for many years, this was her time to shine – “I had seen too many of the same wedding to ever want to choose something because tradition said I should. Helping Parker understand the vision was more of a challenge, though. Having not attended many weddings – a white dress and a tux in a banquet hall walking down the aisle to Canon in D were all he had to reference. It’s nearly EVERY wedding the mainstream media feeds us. As we got into planning and I was able to share options with him and help him understand that we could break the ‘rules’ if we wanted to – decisions started falling into place seamlessly. He was very active in the planning process.”

Bilingual Dia de Muertos & Star Wars Wedding

When Iris and Zack started planning their wedding, it was of the utmost importance that they played homage to the bride’s Mexican heritage, so they chose November 2nd (Dia de Muertos/ Day of the Dead) as their wedding date. It’s something they celebrate every year anyway so having their wedding on that date seemed entirely fitting.

“I’m Mexican-American and I set up an altar to honour our grandparents and we welcomed our loved one’s souls during our bilingual ceremony”, Iris explained. “We also had traditional papel picado (decorative paper) with our initials hanging in our cocktail area, which my cousin had made for us in Mexico. Our signature cocktail was a Paloma, a traditional Mexican drink.”

Geeky, Gothic Wedding with Toy Story, Ghostbusters & KISS

Alanah and Joey’s June wedding (on the groom’s birthday!) had a whopping nine themes in total – Toy Story, WWE, Nightmare Before Christmas, Harry Potter, Star Wars, Marvel, DC and Ghostbusters! A mashup of all the things they loved, it created an eclectic, geeky gothic themed day where the bride wore black and the groom wore white – and it suited them down to a tee!

With a budget of £15,000 the couple undertook vast amounts of DIY to achieve all the little details they wanted. They made the comic book flowers, buttonholes and hair accessories, and superhero lapel pins and gift bags including personalised items such as glasses and hangers for everyone in the wedding party.

Star Wars Meets Vintage Floral Meets High School Musical Mashup Wedding

There is so much you’re going to love about Beth and Jamie’s self-proclaimed ‘hipster Star Wars’ themed wedding that I barely know where to start! With a budget of £8,000 they got married on… yep, you guessed it, May 4th, and the attention to detail does not stop there.

Inspired by The Forest Moon Of Endor from Return Of The Jedi, as massive Star Wars fans the couple knew they wanted to have a themed wedding but for it not to appear cheesy or forced – they wanted a tasteful vibe that suited their traditional church ceremony but that still had elements that reflected their personalities.

Interstellar on a Budget: A Space & Star Wars Themed Wedding

Tori and Richard didn’t have lots of extra cash to drop on their May wedding, so instead of going into debt they simply decided to make peace with it and to plan the wedding they wanted within their £4500 means. They sold things they no longer needed (like fancy silverware that they NEVER used or even looked at) in order to raise the funds they needed (“It transpires we wanted a wedding DJ more than a canteen of fancy spoons!”) We are ALL about this attitude here at Rock n Roll Bride by the way!

They were wed at the Mercure Bradford Bankfield Hotel on bank holiday Monday. “Since we had no idea about a theme but were trying to wrangle dinosaurs and space together as things that represented ‘us’, our theme kind of became Interstellar on a budget!!” said the bride. “I looked at Pinterest, saw some projects and thought ‘This must be how you theme a wedding in 2019… with rose gold dino toys’ because everyone else was doing it. Cue three days of haunting toy shops before we abandoned that idea and decided to do it our own way instead. Richard had started to look at wedding stationery, saw some great customisable star designs on Vistaprint and that ended up being what we went with because it just felt right.”

Revenge of the Sith Warehouse Wedding

Attention Star Wars fanatics, Adéla and Milan’s wedding is about to blow your mind! They met at a LARP battle and are big LARPers and Star Wars fans, so obviously they had to bring both of these things into their day. They found an amazing warehouse in Prague to host it, and went ALL OUT on the theme.

Although they make many of their own costumes usually, for their wedding they decided to hire a dressmaker to create their outfits which were based on the Sith robes. “Milan’s was inspired by Kylo Rens’ robe from Episode VII and I was inspired by many different Pinterest Sith robes and Amidala pins”, said Adéla.

The warehouse space was the perfect backdrop for them, but it was a completely empty shell meaning they had to bring everything in themselves. “Since the factory was insanely big we prepared just three rooms”, she continued. “One where the ceremony was (after it transformed into a dance floor), another with the food and drinks and the third which had a projector where we played all the movies and some comfy sofas. There was also a table with Lego where people could make spaceships for a competition!”
