A space wedding is an unusual marriage ceremony that carries special symbolic value. It symbolizes man’s desire to explore space. The couple’s wedding was recorded on video link from a Russian cosmonaut’s station, which served as the venue for the ceremony. The wedding march and David Bowie’s “Absolute Beginners” were played during the ceremony. The bride and groom walked down the aisle to the tune of the song, and a life-size cardboard cutout of the pair was used as a prop.
The company that organizes these events plans to start accepting applications for its Space Wedding service in July 2011. This new service will be conducted on board the Rocket Plane XP, an aircraft developed by American aerospace company Rocketplane Inc. The service is a fully customizable experience, with premium plans including an original wedding dress, a wedding party on earth, and a live broadcast of the ceremony on the couple’s website.
Some couples may find the planning of a space wedding overwhelming, however, so it’s a good idea to delegate some tasks to other individuals. Traditional venues are typically more manageable for this type of wedding. For couples who aren’t as design savvy, Raw Space wedding venues are a great choice. The space allows you to arrive early, with plenty of time to set up your decorations.
The company also has exclusive partnerships with several event vendors, such as catering companies, DJs, and cover bands. Other vendors can also book space weddings in rocket space, including the company’s own event coordinators. For weddings in space, guests are welcome to bring their favorite food or drink. If they would like a DJ, they can request a song from their favorite artist.
The process for a space wedding has taken years, but the technology is now available to make it a reality. With a few key changes, a space wedding will be possible for a real couple. Once the venue is complete, Chapel of the Flowers will offer the space weddings for free. The company will also provide live broadcasts of the ceremony for guests to watch.
As a matter of fact, the space weddings could even be performed by an officiant. A wedding officiant can often be included in the price of dedicated NYC wedding event spaces. If you have a hard time finding one, you can ask the wedding coordinator to suggest a few. These professionals may be able to capture some great moments of your special day.
While a space wedding is more affordable than an event space, it takes careful planning. You’ll need to make sure that you’ve considered the layout and lighting of the space. Rugs and other decor can make a room more welcoming. However, they may not be appropriate for every style of wedding.
