While getting married in the mountains or at the beach has become a common thing for couples, some are going above and beyond to tie the knot in space. A company called Space Perspective is offering couples a chance to get married at the edge of space for a hefty price of $125,000.
The couple that gets married in space will be lifted to about 100,000 feet above Earth and then lowered back down to land. The six-hour journey will have enormous porthole windows, which the company says are “the biggest ever flown into space.” Currently, the wait list is light years long for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Space Perspective was founded by two former Biosphere 2 crew members who have a passion for creating closed ecological systems that can support people during extended space voyages. The company’s first mission is scheduled for 2024.
If you’re planning a wedding, it might be worth your while to speak with the event coordinators at Raw Spaces to find out if the venue has everything that you need. Typically these types of venues offer rental fees that are lower than traditional banquet facilities but come pretty bare bones in terms of furniture and decor. That means that you will likely need to provide your own tables, chairs, flatware, glassware and china.
Another important thing to keep in mind is the capacity of the space relative to your guest list. Some venues can feel claustrophobic when there are too many guests. Some venues have a minimum guest count that must be met in order to rent them out.
Lastly, it’s important to remember that even though the concept of a space wedding is super cool the logistics can be extremely challenging. You’ll want to make sure that the venue is capable of executing your vision and that you have the ability to delegate tasks if needed.
If the thought of a Raw Space is intimidating or you’re not able to delegate tasks consider hiring a professional planner that specializes in weddings and other large events. SPACE Events offers creativity, capability, consistency and credibility as a one-stop shop for all of your Bar/Bat Mitzvah, Quinceanera, Baby Shower, Sweet 16, Wedding, Corporate or other special event needs.
