Space Wedding – Out of This World
Those of you who think outside the box and have been fantasizing about a unique way to get married ….. you may want to try this new destination. Carrie Bradshaw found solace in the Registrar’s Office to get hitched, but you may want to try Space!
Japanese space transportation provider Rocketplane Kistler and wedding planner “First Advantage” have come together in this creative venture, that will allow soon-to-be-wed couples to take their vows in space.
The complete wedding package aboard the Rocketplane XP suborbital space plane will cost 240 million yen ($2.2 million). The price includes a wedding ceremony aboard a 1-hour space flight that reaches an altitude of more than 100 kilometers (62.1 miles), as well as a photo and video album, original dress, wedding certificate and other ceremonial items.
The price also includes cost of transportation to and from the launch site, accommodations, a live broadcast of the ceremony to friends and family at a reception hall on the ground, and 4 days of rehearsal.
The space wedding services are scheduled to begin in 2011, but you start applying early next month.
