Star Wars Lightsaber Candlestick available at ThinkGeek is perfect for a centerpiece at any Star Wars themed wedding. Each Star Wars Lightsaber Candlestick is a precise scaled down re-creation of Darth Vader’s blade cast in zinc-alloy and chrome plated. Three no-drip red taper candles are included but most standard taper candles will fit the candlestick properly. The circular base unscrews to provide a more authentic look to the saber hilt for the true Star Wars collector.

Chuck made a tiny version of a 1950′s British Police Call box from Doctor Who. Meant to be a  jewelry box but I bet you could downsize it to make a great ring box for a proposal. See the entire step by step project at Chuck Does Art.

What would be better than a full color 3D Print of your Minecraft avatar to use a cake topper. Minetoys is an online service that uses Shapeways 3D printing to create a full color 3D model of a Minecraft avatar. How does it work? Your Minecraft skin is rendered in a HD file, applied to a 3D model, then sent to Shapeways for 3D Printing. You can also choose from over 600 Minecraft avatars from the Minetoys Shapeways Shop.

Since I have yet to come across someone who has had a Game of Thrones themed wedding I decided to create one myself starting with the Stark family crest “winter is coming” save-the-date above that I changed to “a wedding is coming”.

Game of Thrones is an American medieval fantasy series about seven noble families fighting for control of the mythical land of Westeros. Based on author George R. R. Martin‘s best-selling A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels, the first of which is called A Game of Thrones, the television series debuted in the U.S. on April 17, 2011 on HBO.
I hope some of these will inspire would be Brides and Grooms into creating their own Game of Thrones wedding.

The photo above shows what you can do if you want a Tardis in your wedding. The photo booth below is located at Clacton Pier in the UK and is more typical looking. This Doctor Who photo booth is one of a kind, since I can’t seem to find any information about any others online. The Photo booth takes a photo of you and put the image it in a Doctor Who related frame. The ones I saw went from Rose to The Next Doctor and the selection included Daleks, Davros, Cybermen, Face of Boe, The Empty Child, Weeping Angels, Sontaran, Scarecrows and more (unfortunatly no characters with a human apperance like The Doctor, The Master, Rose etc).

Add a personal touch to your reception menu with a signature cocktail. It is also a great way to keep your wedding budget manageable by cutting the open bar and instead offer simply wine, beer and a signature cocktail. 

Like this pair of Portal 2 cocktails created by James Dance, the proprietor of the bar/arcade Loading. Designed to resemble the two colored portals from the excellent sci-fi puzzle game. Relying on Blue Curacao and Orangina for the color (with vodka and rum for the kick), this neon pair is sure to teleport your tastebuds to new heights -or get you hammered.
