If you’re in love and want to get married in zero-gravity, a space wedding may be the perfect option for you. A Japanese firm is now accepting reservations for such a ceremony. A space wedding will take place 100 kilometers above Earth’s surface. Couples can also bring two more guests with them and a priest. Guests can participate in the ceremony, with most of the ceremony taking place before takeoff. And there’s even a photo album.
A space wedding can be a truly unique affair. The bride will wear a specially designed gown and pants made specifically for microgravity. The groom will wear a tuxedo by J.Lucas Clothiers with specially designed tails that take advantage of zero-gravity conditions. The bride and groom will exchange wedding rings made by renowned jeweler Chris Ploof. The metal used in the rings comes from the Gibeon meteorite, which fell in Namibia during prehistoric times.
A raw space wedding can also be a unique way to celebrate your special day. A space with raw materials is often inexpensive and sentimental. It can reflect the personality of the couple, their love story, and their uniqueness. A space like this is an excellent place to begin a DIY wedding, or even to enlist the services of a professional. Just make sure you’re not wasting your wedding budget on a space that doesn’t fit your personality!
While the couple chose to get married in space, the Russian Mission Control Center didn’t contact the groom to make arrangements. Because the ceremony was private, the video conference was not broadcast on NASA’s television. In addition, Yuri’s bride, Ekaterina, had moved to Russia, but didn’t renounce her American citizenship before the ceremony. Fortunately, the space wedding went ahead and the couple got married in Yaroslavl. Afterwards, they had a daughter called Camilla.
Though many people thought that a space wedding would never be possible, there are several examples of successful marriages in the universe. In 2007, a Russian cosmonaut married a U.S. citizen while on a mission. The Russian cosmonaut was a brunette, and she wore a classic white wedding dress. Despite being 402 kilometers above New Zealand, the wedding ceremony took place via satellite. And while it was a space wedding, the effects of it were felt for years afterward.
In fact, you don’t even have to be a rocket scientist to have a space wedding. The company will conduct the ceremonies from their private spaceport in Oklahoma. However, if you’re planning a space wedding in the United States, you’ll need to make a deposit of $8,000, and wait a little longer. And besides the wedding ceremony, you’ll get free Wi-Fi in the space capsule.
