An Offbeat Bride reader first brought this poem by author Tim Pratt to our attention way back in 2011. Almost 10 years later, we stumbled upon it and it’s still just so freaking perfect for those of you looking for a nerdy, science wedding reading that would feel great at a science-minded geeky wedding, or space or astronomy-themed wedding or even an atheist wedding…
The theme was a Jewish wedding with a Middle Earth and Star Wars twist. Costumes, lightsabers, swords, dancing, and giant turkey legs made the celebration go wild. But it was the meaning and intent that brought everyone to years.
I proposed to my fiance Simen on our anniversary, so I thought I’d share the story of how I did it with the most romantic part of Star Wars. I went on Etsy and I found a Star Wars fidget spinner ring. He likes Star Wars (though I had never watched any of it), and he fidgets a lot, so I thought it was pretty good. I asked my friend Benedikt JOKINGLY if there was a romantic moment in Star Wars.
He showed me one particular scene you may recognize…
hen May the 4th falls on a weekend, you know there will be some choice Star Wars-influenced weddings to be seen. But Tiffany and Kyle’s epic Star Wars wedding takes the Wookiee cookies. From dancing storm troopers to a Darth Vader ceremony cameo to original Star Wars artwork by the bride to the TIE Fighter cake, it was a galactic celebration the likes of which Endor and Naboo had never seen.
Cosplayer Jazzmin Jolly and Eleventh Doctor Josh had a stellar time traveling through space and time (and New Jersey beaches!) for this Whovian shoot. There was an on-trend bouquet for the groom (on a budget, too– only $30 for all the flowers!), an envy-inducing TARDIS dress, and even a sneaky reference to the Doctor’s wife — hello sweetie!
A sci fi lover's ceremony and mythical/cryptid creatures with a dose of boho in the desert! Since Victor proposed in a redwood forest after we visited the Bigfoot Museum in Santa Cruz, we kept the cryptid creature theme going for our wedding. Our save-the-date paid homage to X-files, UFOs, and the elusive Sasquatch. Our quirky wedding suite reflects our love not only for Joshua Tree but for all things mythical and paranormal.
