1. Enchantment Resort

Location: Sedona, Arizona

Tucked in the heart of Boynton Canyon, this resort offers other-worldly vistas of towering red rocks reminiscent of the desert landscapes of various Star Wars planets. Say your “I do’s” at one of four outdoor sites and move the reception indoors to one of the ballrooms with sweeping canyon views.

2. Boston Public Library

Location: Boston, Massachusetts

No matter which location at the Boston Public Library you choose for your ceremony and reception, you and your guests will feel like they stepped right onto the set of a Star Wars palace. With its archways, columns, fountains, and upper balcony, the courtyard makes the perfect place for a regal wedding ceremony. Indoors, the elegance continues, with sweeping marble staircases, soaring vaulted ceilings, and architecture inspired by England and Italy.

3. Kevin Taylor’s at the Opera House

Location: Denver, Colorado

To recreate the towering, extravagant feel of the infinite rows of seating at the Galactic Senate, consider a wedding at the Opera House. Get married at center stage and then head to the Chambers Grant Salon for an “evening under the stars,” with its black ceiling designed to look like a starry sky.

4. Salish Lodge & Spa

Location: Snoqualmie, Washington

This picturesque retreat located in the Pacific Northwest calls to mind the scenery of Padmé Amidala’s home planet of Naboo. Have your wedding ceremony overlooking an epic waterfall, with the sounds of the thundering cascades echoing below.

5. Canyon Springs Golf Club

Location: San Antonio, Texas

Get married at the foot of gentle waterfalls trickling down a wall of greenery at this secluded venue. Its indoor event spaces feature vaulted ceilings and expansive patios and lawns that are perfect for recreating a Naboo-like atmosphere.

6. The Prado at Balboa Park

Location: San Diego, California

For lush courtyards with colonnades and fountains, grand ballrooms with high ceilings, garden terraces overlooking a minaret, and a Spanish courtyard — look no further than The Prado at Balboa Park. You can’t go wrong with any location at this venue for your Star Wars-themed wedding. Whether you want a more intimate garden ceremony or a larger celebration with views of the park, The Prado has it covered.

7. Mildred B. Cooper Memorial Chapel

Location: Bella Vista, Arkansas

If the dense woodlands of the planet Endor are more your style, opt for this chapel in the treetops. The architecture is reminiscent of Gothic cathedrals, but the glass walls bring the forest indoors. The lattices of crisscrossing arches blend into the woods beyond and give this venue an elegant treehouse feel.

8. Convict Lake Resort

Location: Mammoth Lakes, California

It’s hard to beat the views at this venue — a sparkling lake at the base of the towering peak of Mt. Morrison. The backdrop of this resort calls to mind the mountainous terrain of Princess Leia’s home, Alderaan. Or, plan your wedding for the wintertime for views of snowcapped peaks and pristine snow, like on the planet Hoth.

9. Curtiss Mansion

Location: Miami Springs, Florida

For vibes of Tatooine — the home of Anakin and Luke Skywalker — Curtiss Mansion fully delivers. The mansion’s courtyard makes for an intimate reception area, surrounded by sand-colored walls and twinkling lights.

Star Wars wedding ideas for the ceremony and reception

29. Some die-hard Star Wars fans may look at the films as much more than films. As Bustle explains, many people’s life philosophies, including those on love and commitment, are shaped by Star Wars. With that being the case, why not incorporate it into your vows?

30. Before your first dance, how about a first lightsaber battle? The below couple did just that, taking to the dance floor with the epic Star Wars soundtrack and lightsabers with sound effects.

31. Toast your new union with engraved Princess Leia and Han Solo champagne flutes.

32. Take a page from Disney World’s book with themed drinks inspired by the ones at the theme park’s new Star Wars expansion, Galaxy’s Edge. Tatooine Sunset, the Fuzzy Tauntaun, and the Jedi Mind Trick are just a few.

33. For the wedding cake, consider one showing the merging of the light side and the dark side of the force. Or, go for a cake style that is business in the front, party in the back – it looks like a traditional wedding cake from one angle, but from another, each tier has its own Star Wars personalization. For a more subtle touch of Star Wars, this style of cake adds white figurines of the Death Star and X-wings made of fondant that perfectly blend into the white cake.

34. For cake toppers, create your own custom figurines made in the likeness of you and your partner. The artist can even add Star Wars costumes and props.

35. If your reception takes place partially outdoors, incorporate a Death Star fire pit or Darth Vader wood burner for campfires and roasting marshmallows.

36. Try your hand at hitting the target and outshoot the stormtroopers with a dark side of the force corn hole board.

37. What’s a wedding without a photo booth? Use scenes from the movie as your backdrop and have plenty of props at the ready.

38. Have your guests do a lightsaber tunnel salute as you exit for the evening. Warning: spontaneous lightsaber duels may ensue.
