Recently, pro gamer David and his wife Krystal had a space wedding. They got married in the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. The ceremony featured a rocket-themed reception, astronaut food, and words of wisdom from a real-life astronaut. They even invited Winston E. Scott to perform during the ceremony, playing a saxophone. Read on to find out what you can expect from a space wedding.
In addition to space balloons, the space wedding will be a romantic adventure, so be prepared for a long flight. Space balloons, which are so high they can carry eight people, are perfect for a space-themed wedding. The balloon will be 100,000 feet in the air, which is higher than the average commercial aeroplane cruises. Space weddings are available on Mars and Earth.

Though space weddings aren’t yet widely available in the United States, the Japanese company First Advantage is now accepting reservations for them. Space weddings will last for approximately 60 minutes, and the couple will exchange vows in zero gravity with two or three guests. The Japanese firm has a tie-up with a US-based space tourism company, Rocket Plane, and is planning flights from a private airport in Oklahoma City. Although the couple will most likely see the outline of the Earth, they won’t be that far into space to experience floating completely.
While the concept is unique, it’s not without its benefits. If the two of you have a romantic connection, a space wedding might be just the thing to make your day. Whether you are a seasoned space explorer or just a newbie to space travel, you’ll be amazed by the possibilities. And it might not seem like a wedding in space, but it will be an unforgettable experience. While you might not be able to visit the ISS on Earth, you can still get married there.
The Russian cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko married a U.S. citizen in January 2011. He served in the cosmonaut corps for almost two years, spending most of his time in space. Currently, he is the second longest space cosmonaut ever. With 827 days and nine hours of space, he is the second-longest person ever to spend in space. And he has won the highest award for his work. He credits his space wedding with his fame.
Another consideration is the size of the space. You’ll need enough space for your guests to sit and stand up comfortably. You’ll also need enough power outlets to run a lighting system. If you’re marrying in an outdoor space, make sure it’s accessible to guests. For example, you don’t want all of your guests to be climbing stairs to reach the ceremony. Having your guests peek around corners can ruin their experience.
