bring the characters to life
Why not take it one step further and invite full size characters to come party with you and yours at your wedding reception? Monica surprised her new husband, Kevin with a whole crew of famous Star Wars characters and it couldn't have been more magical.
"My husband and I are geeks at heart and we were so delighted to have a fellow-geek in Alex who embraced our love for the Star Wars, Marvel, Disney and Harry Potter universes. We got married in Spetmeber, and despite the 98 degree weather which felt more like 128 degrees, Alex kept smiling and was running around the entire day making sure that we were absolutely at ease. Moreover, he and his team, helped me carefully and successfully execute my top-secret surprise for my husband as his favorite Star Wars characters greeted us as we made our grand entrance."

special touches for Any star wars fan
There are hundreds of ways for you to honor your partner's love of Darth Vader or Princess Leia without sacrificing your vision of the day. We love Star Wars themed whiskey glasses for a pre-ceremony toast! You might also consider small, special touches that will make all the difference. A lightsaber tunnel is classic and fun for everyone.
