Wedding Ideas for Star Wars Fans: What if Rey + Kylo Got Married?

Star Wars Wedding Dark Side

We’ve got no shortage of wedding ideas for Star Wars fans (truly, there are some good ones), but today’s inspiration takes it to the next galactic level. It’s no spoiler to say that Rey + Kylo Ren (aka Ben) didn’t end up married in the films…but what if they would have? We’re doing a little fan service with this epic wedding and imagining a different kind of ending for the passionate young pair! Here’s Rae Marshall Photography with her design vision and inspiration behind the day:

I’ve seen multiple wedding ideas for Star Wars fans, but nothing based on the latest trilogy. I love Rey and Kylo’s strong personalities and how their stories intertwine throughout the series. As a wedding photographer, I couldn’t help but wonder…what if they got to be together after the credits rolled? I wanted to do both a light and dark look for Rey because who could guess which way she might go for her wedding day?!

Our stand-ins for Rey + Ben just happen to be big fans of Star Wars themselves—who were celebrating their 10-year anniversary! So perfect, right?

Let’s jump into the day with planning by Ever After Moments. and photos from Rae Marshall Photography!

Love Awakens

Something about seeing it written in an invitation by By Melissa Meyer makes a Star Wars wedding feel so legit!

Black Wedding Rings
Yes, these are perfect!!

A Star Wars Wedding Ceremony

A Star Wars Bridal Look

The white gown from ASOS was totally on-point for Rey with that drapery in the back! And Whik’d Hawaii recreated the classic 3-bun look with a bit of a messy boho twist.

“When We Touched Hands, I Saw Your Future”

The Last Jedi wedding
After the ceremony, things took a turn for Rey! She slipped into a darker look with a black wedding dress from Masako Formals as they ventured off to a dramatic cliffside. As for Kylo, he’s feeling more like himself in that black cape.
