When it comes to marriage, many couples go above and beyond to make their day special. Some even dream of venturing out into space. And for those that really want to go all out, there is now a chance to do so. A company called Space Perspective is offering betrotheds a chance to travel to the edge of space to experience stunning views.
The Orlando-based company will be taking passengers to a capsule on the edge of space where they can take their vows. The trip will be around 100,000 feet above Earth, giving the view an incredible otherworldly quality. The company’s website describes the experience as “enchanting and immersive” for those who want to tie the knot with a breathtaking view.
While it won’t be as nerve-wracking as a full space flight, the six-hour trip will give you the feeling of a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The capsule can hold up to nine people including a pilot. The company also offers a more relaxed experience where you can enjoy drinks and snacks while viewing the planet from above.
The cost for the entire trip is around $37,000. And while the price tag might be a little steep, it is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to do something out of this world. And it would definitely be a unique way to celebrate your marriage.
If you can’t afford to fly to space for your wedding, there are virtual options available as well. One couple got married in a virtual environment last Labor Day weekend, with Ms. Gagnon’s avatar walked down the aisle by her friend’s avatar, and 7-year-old twin avatars played ring bearer and flower girl. The ceremony was hosted by Virbela, a company that creates virtual environments for work and events.
Besides having the out-of-this-world experience, there are other benefits of marrying in space. According to the company, the oxygen level is higher in outer space than on Earth, making it easier to breathe. And there are fewer cosmic particles to interfere with the body’s biochemistry, which can lead to health problems down below.
There are other advantages as well, including the ability to look back on your marriage from a different point of view. You might be able to see the way your relationship has evolved over the years from the perspective of an astronaut looking down on Earth. And you might find yourself with a whole new appreciation for what your spouse does on the job.
Those who are already planning their weddings have plenty to consider, including choosing the right location. If space isn’t a possibility, there are other stunning locations that can provide a magical out-of-this-world experience. Just remember, a space wedding requires a lot of planning and coordination. So if you’re not the most organized person, you might not want to consider this option. However, if you can delegate some of the tasks to your friends and family members, it could be an amazing way to get married.
