It's getting to be that time of year again: Halloween wedding season! We can always count on seeing loads of weddings where guests are encouraged to come in costume. Because, seriously, costumes always amp up the fun factor. Here are 18 weddings that totally get it right when it comes to rocking the costumes.

This pair started talking on May 4th (Star Wars Day!), so it only made sense to complete the circle with a wedding on the same day. With Han and Leia cake toppers, a Death Star cake, and of course, the 501st Legion, it was an intergalactic good time. And when you're looking to up the fun game on your photo booth, have some cardboard cut-outs handy!
A little while ago, Laura of Rebel Belle Weddings and I attended a Star Wars-themed birthday party. I went as Luke on Dagobah. Laura broke out her Jedi robes and went as a Rebel wedding planner, complete with a binder labeled "Rebel Weddings: Leia and Han." The binder was filled with detailed wedding plans for Han and Leia's future wedding aboard the Millennium Falcon (of course)…
When a Stormtrooper walks you down the aisle and Darth Vader is the flower girl, you know you're in for something geektastically awesome. Add in the video game details, the epic costume party, and the amazingly colorful reception dress, and it's on like Donkey Kong. Oh, and wait until you see their lightsaber candle ceremony!
It's Star Wars week and today we've got a Star Wars-themed masquerade with handmade masks, a Yoda officiant, and a wedding party complete with all the major characters from the movies. Add in the LED bouquets, the "future preview" movies, life-sized Han in carbonite, and mini lightsabers for everyone, and you've got a wedding to make any Star Wars fan start heavy breathing. Oh, and wait until you see the surprise reception dance!
Remember a while ago when I got to crash Offbeat Bride Jennifer and her husband Ryan's wedding at the Jim Henson Studios here in LA? Well, Jennifer and Ryan's pictures are in, and I want you to re-live the wedding crashing goodness with me. Come with me to see the geektastic wedding details that'll definitely cause a pleasant disturbance in the Force.
Flower sword fights, pygmy goats, millions of book page flowers, and geeky Star Wars details all over this joint — it's a geeky wedding, Texas-style! This handfasting meets techie wedding is an amazing mix of themes. Oh, and wait until you check out the bride's DIYed Star Wars comic shoes!
Our favorite member of the wedding party, the RING BEAR, returns! This time inside a space-y sci-fi-themed wedding in Seattle that includes sci-fi save-the-dates, Thai catering, and space grab bag favors. These high school sweethearts and their team of "Groundhoggers" totally know how to party (and awesomely get kicked out of the after party!).
Emily and Phil met in 2002 through mutual friends in the UK Garrison, a Star Wars 501st legion group, and have been together ever since. The pair chose to have a wedding that combined all of their favorite things: leopard print, music, and, of course, Star Wars. The bridal party wore leopard-printed dresses to match Emily's self-designed shoes, and the bride's floor-length red bridal gown was matched by the groomsmen's red shirts.
