Star Wars: A New Invitation #Invitations#custom invitations#diy invitations#geeky weddings#invitations#lightsaber#star wars Updated Oct 12 2015 (Posted Aug 17 2010) Megan Finley Horowitz meggyfin I'm literally tingling with joy after seeing well-known cosplayer and OBT member Ginny McQueen's Star Wars themed invites. If their invitation looks familiar it's because it's based on this iconic Star Wars poster for A New Hope… The art was done by San Smith, and the layout was all Ginny. Also to add to the overall amazingness — they are high-quality 11" x 17" posters! To get more info on these bad-boys and the story behind them head over to Ginny's blog.

On a side note, I only just realized how awkward the abbreviation for "save the date" is…hmm… Reply That is so cool. My fiance LOVES Star Wars ( I like it too, but I am not quite as enthusiastic about it as he is), so I've been trying to come up with a way to incorporate something Star Wars related into the wedding. I just might use this idea. Thanks for posting this! Reply I used the Star Wars song The Throne Room from Star Wars IV: A New Hope. We also named a few tables after starships in the movies. Reply Awesome! While I designed very traditional invites, my husband and I used the Throne Room song when we were presented as Mr. & Mrs. It was always my dream and hubby didn't mind. The only thing missing was Chewbacca. Reply Yay, Ginny (my husband's Best Woman)! We got ours in the mail a few days ago and couldn't believe the awesomeness. Their STDs were also Doctor Who-themed (pretty sure it's also in the OBB Flickr group). They're multi-fandom! =) Reply Um, YES. I love the light emanating from the ring as a light saber replacement. :drool: Reply Aw, thanks guys! <2 Reply Love the cats! Reply I love Star Wars – this is fantastic and I am very, very pleased though that Ginny is pictured in a wedding dress rather than Princess Leia's Jabba The Hut slave outfit! 😛 Reply I love this. so cool, so sci fi : ) Reply OMGOMGOMG Epic! I am drooling over this! My wedding was less than four weeks ago, but maybe my sister will be geeky enough to do this. Or maybe for vow renewals in 5 or 10 years. Love this and congratulations! p.s. I agree with Gayle, it's completely awesome how the wedding dress is more Princess Leia than Slave Leia. Sexy and classic at the same time! Reply It just whigs me out a bit because Luke and Leia are siblings. Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
