5 Sample Star Wars themed wedding vows


1. “Never tell me the odds.” 
Han Solo to C-3PO in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back


“I fell for you the moment we met. There was no going back. Friends suggested I take things slow, and consider the odds… But I told them, Never tell me the odds! I did so many dumb things to impress you our first year together. Standing here beside you today, I don’t regret a single one... You inspire me to try new things no matter how impossible they seem, to dive into life headfirst. Whether we’re flying directly into an asteroid field or spending an entire week on vacation with our parents… I know we can make it through anything, together. I love you and I can’t wait to be married to you.”


2. "Difficult to see. Always in motion is the future." 
Master Yoda in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back


“______, I’m so excited to be your wife/husband/partner! I promise to be true to you in good times and bad, in sickness and in health, for the rest of our lives. I know life will give us our share of ups and downs, and that the future is always in motion. But no matter what comes our way, we’ve got this! We’ve got each other, and this unstoppable love. I’m with you until the end – I love you so much. So much!”


3. “In my experience, there’s no such thing as luck.” 
Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope


“______, you showed me that love isn’t some intellectual puzzle that needs to be figured out, and it’s not luck. You always say there’s no such thing as luck – just intuition and trust in the Force that guides our lives. Thank you for teaching me to trust in love with an open heart. I promise to be the husband/ wife/ partner you deserve, to build the marriage we deserve, to grow beside you, to laugh with you, to travel with you, to chase our dreams with you. And I promise to love you from this day until the last. And even though I feel like the luckiest man/ woman/ human alive to be standing beside you today, I know that because we have love, we’ll never need luck.” 


4. “I love you.” “I know.” 
Leia to Han in The Empire Strikes Back, and Han to Leia in Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi


Partner One: 

“______ , I take you to be my lawfully wedded wife/ husband/ partner, to cherish you and care for you every day, for as long as we live. I promise to never stop having adventures with you, and to never stop keeping you on your toes, today and always. I love you.” 


Partner Two: 

“I know.  ______, I take you to be my lawfully wedded wife/ husband/ partner, to cherish you and care for you every day, for as long as we live. I promise to never stop having adventures with you, and to always keep you on your toes, today and for the rest of our lives. I love you.”


Partner One: 

“I know.”


5. “She may not look like much, but she’s got it where it counts, kid.” 
Han Solo in Return of the Jedi


“______, you’ve been my best friend for (five) years, and today I become your wife/husband/partner. I can’t tell you how long I’ve dreamed about this day. For years, I wondered if I would ever meet someone who made me feel really seen, really safe, and known. A soulmate. And then you walked into my life, so cute I couldn’t breathe – radiating joy and hope and love, the most resilient, intelligent, creative person I’ve ever known. You lit up everything around you, including me. I used to joke that I might not be much to look at, but that I’ve got it where it counts – and it made you laugh. Well, now, I really do got it where it counts – I’ve got you beside me. And there’s nothing I love nearly as much as watching you laugh. I promise to laugh and grow with you every single day. I love you, ______.”




Yoda wedding meme from Star Wars


May the Fourth be with you…

Did you know that May 4th is National Star Wars Day? As in, “May the Fourth be with you”... This nerd-friendly holiday is a popular choice for franchise fans who want to say ‘I do’ in themed elopements and wedding ceremonies, surrounded by friends and family in cosplay.
