A Japanese firm is now taking reservations for a space wedding, where the couple is launched 60 miles into the sky and will exchange their wedding vows in zero gravity. The ceremony will cost about $125,000, and the couple will pay an initial $8,000 deposit to reserve a spot in the capsule. The couple can also include two additional guests and a priest to attend the ceremony.
A space wedding might sound like a dream, but it is not possible right now. Though it is not currently legal in the United States, the space industry has been growing since 2001. In 2001, American millionaire Dennis Tito paid twenty million dollars to the Russian space agency in order to get married in space. It’s not clear when such a wedding will become a reality, but the first couple to hold one will have the opportunity to make history.
The couple had an incredibly unique wedding. The bride, Ekaterina Dmitrieva, was married to Yuri Malenchenko through video link from the International Space Station. Malenchenko, a Russian cosmonaut, was in Houston for the event, while the bride, Yuri, was on the International Space Station. Malenchenko even wore a bow tie to mark the occasion!
Although Russian authorities were disapproving of the space wedding, they said the event was still legal. The couple will also hold a religious ceremony in Russia, in a church in Yaroslavl, a city near Moscow with traditional Russian church architecture. Despite the difficulties in arranging the ceremony, Malenchenko thanked everyone who helped and supported them.
In the near future, there may be an opportunity to hold a wedding in space, and this may be possible even before the space shuttle is launched. Space Perspective is a Florida-based company that provides a unique space wedding experience. Although it’s a long way off, the company has a vision of space weddings as a reality in the years to come.
There are many benefits to having a space wedding. It is not only inexpensive and sentimental, but it also lets you customize your ceremony to reflect your personality and love story. In addition to being sentimental, a space wedding can be a great place to hire a professional. The wedding will be as unique and special as your destination.
When planning a small space wedding, it’s essential to think about the decor and lighting. Choosing rugs or a unique light fixture can make the room feel more inviting. Another great way to personalize your space is by adding a personalized favor tag. These items are great for thank-you gifts for your guests and can save you a lot of money.
