A Space Wedding Could Be the Next Big Thing
The first “space wedding” took place in 1999 when Ekaterina Dmitrieva and Yuri Malenchenko were married on the International Space Station through satellite video link. While the bride and groom were in the same location, both were in Houston, Texas, for the actual ceremony. The bride wore a bow tie to commemorate the occasion, and the ceremony was classified as a private family conference by NASA. Although only one half of the couple was in space, the ceremony had lasting effects that were felt years later.
The wedding will be performed in a microgravity atmosphere, with the bride wearing a special suit designed for this condition. The groom will wear a custom-made tuxedo by J.Lucas Clothiers and tails to take advantage of zero gravity. Both men will wear custom-made space-friendly wedding rings made by jeweler Chris Ploof from metal recovered from a meteorite that fell in Namibia in prehistoric times.
The U.S. Space and Rocket Center has helped cosmonauts plan their marriages. It is not clear how many people would attend the ceremony. But it has become a hot topic of conversation on the Internet. In a world where cosmonauts are a rarity, the wedding is certainly unique. The location is breathtaking and the wedding can be performed in a capsule float 19 miles above the earth. Guests are seated in separate seats and the flight is scheduled to last about six hours.
There are many reasons for having a space wedding. For example, the bride and groom may have wanted to get married in a different country, but they wanted to tie the knot in an unusual venue. In Houston, Yuri Malenchenko was the bride, and the groom was in outer space. The wedding was broadcast live to the world’s media. The ceremony was filmed and photographed by the astronauts, who then had their pictures returned to them in Texas.
A Japanese company has partnered with First Advantage to offer space weddings. The ceremony will be conducted 100 km above the Earth’s surface and will cost around $2 million. The couple can also invite up to two more guests and a priest for the ceremony. During the ceremony, they will watch a live broadcast from the outer space. In addition to the wedding, the Japanese cosmonauts will have the opportunity to take photographs during the flight.
While there are few rules for a space wedding, the cost is high. The cost can range from several hundred thousand dollars to millions of dollars. If the costs are too high, it is also possible to use an actual football stadium in space. There are many possibilities for a wedding in space. For instance, if you choose a ceremony that takes place 100 kilometers above the Earth’s surface, it will be a real thrill for your guests.
