The 6 Dark Sides Of A Star Wars Wedding

Maybe we should've just eloped to Naboo.

From a handmade rhinestone-studded stormtrooper sash to a Millenium Falcon on the wedding cake, the force was clearly with newlywed "Star Wars" fans Jennifer and Joshua, who said their vows in a ceremony fully inspired by the sci-fi franchise.

Via The Huffington Post, the couple's September wedding has become internet famous for its geek cred, and it looks like it went off without a hitch. (You can check out the full story and photos at the link above.) But let's be honest: When it comes to planning a Star Wars wedding, there are also certain pitfalls that are practically unavoidable. Below, we've rounded up the Dark Sides that young Jedis in love will want to be wary of.

  1. You hire a stormtrooper as your photographer, only to find that he can't shoot anything accurately.
  2. Somebody always forgets Chewbacca's boutonniere.
  3. That awkward moment when Han Solo finds out that you only have a cash bar.
  4. Jabba the Hutt will wrangle his way into an invitation, get wasted, and embarrass your guests by oversharing about his S&M relationship... right before he eats his totally inappropriately-dressed date.
  5. The judge pronounces you officially wed. Hooray! But when you lift up the veil to kiss your bride, it's BOBA FETT UNDERNEATH.
  6. And of course, the best man toast always gets a little weird.
