Thanks in no small part to our managing editor of awesomeness, Megan, we at Offbeat Bride have a long and glorious history of loving Star Wars weddings. We've seen (and crashed) many a wedding that would do Han and Leia proud. In homage of this time known as Star Wars Week (what, you don't wear a Chewie T-shirt to celebrate May the 4th be with you?), we've got 25 of our most favorite moments in Star Wars weddings…

1. The guests get into it like none other
