Your Wedding: Star Trek or Star Wars?

Young ladies planning their wedding sometimes want to recreate a fairytale fantasy for the big event. Their fiances sometimes counter by arguing that any decent childhood fantasy would involve light sabers. So the science fiction wedding is becoming more common.

Eric and Juli had a Star Wars wedding that included a Darth Vader groom's cake and an impromptu light saber battle!

Matt Wiggens' fiance said he could have Stormtrooper escorts from the 501st Legion at their wedding if he could get 10,000 people to join his FaceBook group. And they would use the Imperial March if he got 20,000. So far, he has over 14,000 members. The wedding isn't until October, so the orchestra should go ahead and learn the tune.

After the ceremonial first dance, this wedding couple also had their ceremonial "first lightsaber duel" at the reception.

K'Allen and Torsha's Klingon wedding in 2003 became an internet sensation. If you want to do this yourself, you'll find all sorts of help in the Klingon Wedding Manual.

Another option is the Romulan wedding.Romulan wedding.jpg

I didn't find any real-life examples of a Vulcan wedding, probably because the Vulcan mating ritual is so strange. But I found a recipe for Vulcan wedding cake! The cake pictures is not a Vulcan recipe, it's from Allison and Aaron"˜s wedding, which wasn't a Star Trek wedding, but featured an awesome cake.

One of these days, someone will have a combination Star Trek/Star Wars wedding. The ushers won't ask "bride or groom?" but instead ask "Federation or the Force?" I hope I can get an invitation to that one!
