Okay okay okay so @thescribeofscribbles @mangobot @synesthetemonster and I were talking and the idea of a Klance wedding came up. Here’s what we came up with.

  • Hunk is Lance’s best man. Shiro is Keith’s best man. Coran officiates. Pidge is the ringbearer. Shay is the flower girl. Allura is the one who kicks Keith out of the locker room when he starts to get cold feet.
  • Shay finds flowers just for the occasion. There’s one of those giant flower arcs over the altar, made of red roses interlocked with blue. Not a single rose has thorns. Both grooms have forget-me-nots in their pockets. Pidge does a little research of their own and sends them each a lime blossom. Cue the screaming newlyweds chasing a cackling Pidgeon.
  • Hunk and Coran team up to make the wedding banquet of a lifetime.
    • They bake a huge five-layered cake, a galaxy mirror cake with a spiral in the colours of Voltron ascending the side. There’s a fondant Voltron on the top, one that they crafted painstakingly, and little blue and red fondant stars on each layer.
      • Did I mention that there’s edible glitter on everything? Like seriously that shit is the best thing since sliced bread. 
    • The banquet has seven courses, mostly just little plates of wholesome, delicious food made from the castle garden’s produce. Allura has never had ice cream in her life and gives herself brain freeze.
  • Shiro and Allura are all about the aesthetic. 
    • Space dad provides a flawless canvas-concealer for the panda eyes from the lack of sleep the previous night, translucent rice powder for shiny foreheads and sweaty faces of nervous grooms. After all, they’ve got to be picture perfect, don’t they?
    • Allura goes off in the galaxy to find a tailor that her father once employed. She gets both of them the highest quality fabric for their outfits, and for everyone else’s-Shiro, Pidge, Shay, Coran. She even gets them traditional Altean robes for a photoshoot, and just for shits and giggles, a poofy wedding gown for each of them.
  • Pidge rigs up a system with at least 10 cameras to get beautiful photos without any of them having to touch anything. They also team up with the mice to have them rain rose petals down on the altar as Lance and Keith have their first kiss as a married couple. They also build a little cannon for the mice to spray rice over the two of them(see: Cinderella movie, ending) as they drive away into the galaxy to enjoy their honeymoon. 
    • Big mouse eats most of the rice, but they get the job done.
  • Allura tries to convince Shiro to not wear eyeliner that day. He does anyways. The rivers flow in Jet Black ™.
  • If Shiro cried a river, then Hunk might as well have wept a galaxy. He wraps both Lance and Keith in a giant bear hug and it takes all of them to pry him off.
  • Coran tries not to cry, but then the stern uncle-y tears of pride arrive and suddenly he’s shredding through a box of tissues at the speed of sound.
  • Lance is actually one of the first to start crying. When he’s reciting his vows, he kinda cries in happiness, like you know when you cry and laugh at the same time? Keith wipes away his tears.
