Space Wedding – A One-Of-A-Kind Experience

A space wedding is a dream for many newlyweds-to-be, but it’s not exactly cheap. The company behind it, Space Perspective, has a waitlist that starts at $125,000 for a two-person trip to the edge of space for a one-of-a-kind view.

It’s no secret that weddings are getting more and more unique — some even take place beside a waterfall, in a rustic horse stable or on top of a mountain. But the ultimate destination wedding could actually be held in outer space, thanks to a new space travel company called Space Perspective. The company says it can transport couples to the edge of space in a private capsule, with unrivaled views of Earth and the stars overhead.

The firm’s revolutionary Neptune spacecraft lifts off the ground at a more gentle pace than traditional rockets, making it accessible to anyone who is medically fit to fly with a commercial airline. It’s also propelled by renewable hydrogen, allowing for an eco-friendly voyage to the stars. And its massive porthole windows are sure to make for some pretty spectacular pictures.

But you’ll have to hurry if you want to join the list, as the company hasn’t started taking reservations yet. And if you haven’t already, you’ll probably need to rethink your entire wedding budget: Prices start at $125,000 for a two-person journey to the edge of space, and the trip takes six hours in total.

As for what you’ll experience, the company describes it as “the quintessential astronaut experience.” During the flight, you’ll get to enjoy some two hours of viewing the Earth’s curve and its total blackness. And it promises to incorporate your individual preferences into the experience, from the menu and cocktails onboard to the soundtrack and lighting.

The first ever space wedding took place 16 years ago, when American-born Russian cosmonaut Ekaterina Dmitriev married her husband, Yuri Malenchenko, while orbiting in the International Space Station (ISS). She walked down the aisle via video link to David Bowie’s Space Oddity. Afterwards, they held a religious ceremony in a church in Yaroslavl, a city north of Moscow with lots of traditional Russian church architecture.

Since then, more and more couples have gotten creative with their one-of-a-kind weddings. And they’re not just limited to traditional venues — the internet is full of amazing ideas for unconventional weddings in some really unusual places, like a train car, a barn or a forest stream. The key to choosing a venue is understanding your needs and preferences, and working with a professional wedding planner who can help you find the perfect fit. Then, you can relax and celebrate with a smile knowing you’re surrounded by people who love you — no matter what the surroundings are.
