By definition, a Raw Space wedding is an indoor, non-traditional venue which is not a banquet hall, hotel or recreation facility. It can be a museum, local theatre, park or historic property. In most cases Raw Space wedding venues are less costly than more traditional venues and yet come complete with all the bells and whistles of a traditional wedding. This article will help you decide if this type of venue is for you or if you should look elsewhere.
When you talk about a Raw Space wedding venue as an indoor/outdoor wedding venue, what you really mean is that the actual physical venue is not suitable for an outdoor wedding. It might be the case that you want to have your reception in the garden or in some other part of the city that is not easily accessible for guests or the media. If you have chosen a location for your event such as a beach resort or a tropical themed venue, you might want to think about taking it indoors during the warmer months of the year.
There is one major difference between a Raw Space wedding and a space flight: The wedding ceremony is separate from the reception and can take place at a time of your choosing. As long as you follow all of the space wedding planning details – including the guest list – as stated in our website, you will have absolutely no problem. When you choose a wedding venue, many planners ask if you would also like to have your wedding ceremony and reception in the same place. If this is something that you would like to do, let the wedding planner know. Chances are that they have already worked out a deal with a place such as Disney World or another resort where you can exchange vows at the same time.
One thing you need to be aware of is that space weddings do take place in outer space! As long as you allow for it to be shown on TV or in your album, it should not be a problem. Your wedding planner may tell you to wear a spacesuit during the wedding ceremony in order to “dress up” for the event. They may even tell you to wear an outer space suit so that you can have some fun while you are in outer space! And yes, your space wedding will actually take place in outer space (or close to it, anyway), so you can dress up as an astronaut or cosmonaut.
Once you have chosen your location for your wedding, you are still going to have to figure out what type of wedding you will have. You have a lot of different options, such as a simple service with just an altar and a bride and groom (the couple), a wedding band (a gold or silver piece with a gemstone accent), or even a reception with a space theme. Many couples who have chosen to have an outer space themed wedding have chosen to incorporate elements from the starships that made their home in space, such as starfish, which is very symbolic of life on Earth. For your space wedding planner, these are definitely the way to go! Just keep in mind that it is important to contact your local NASA facility to see if there are any official rules or regulations that would prevent you from using a space ship for your wedding ceremony and reception.
The first space wedding took place in 2021, in Russia. It was held aboard a Soyuz TMA-OK rocket, and many of the couples involved were able to keep in touch afterwards through a video link up. You can find more information about this exciting event by visiting the International Space Station blog. The next space station wedding will take place aboard a Russian Soyuz TMA-14 cargo mission in 2021.
