by Bitchless Bride

Hey brideys! How’s the wedding planning coming along? I’m not sure if you saw my post on Bitchless Bride the other day, but I wrote about six definite party pleasers. And one of the “pleasers” was recessing down the aisle following the ceremony to the Star Wars theme song. You see, the groom really wanted a Star Wars themed wedding, but the bride was going for a more traditional feel, which meant no themes. So, because she knew it was important to him, she incorporated Star...
