Now, you can combine two once-in-a-lifetime events - getting married and going up into space. Space Wedding, a business partnership of Rocketplane Kistler Japan and wedding planner First Advantage, has teamed up to offer couples a 1-hour trip, 62 miles up in space. Space! The black void above our atmosphere. Price for risking your life, I mean lives... $2.2 million!
Implications - Weddings are a multi-billion dollar industry, and today's couples are eschewing tradition and looking for more innovative and unique ways to get hitched. Because of this, extremely offbeat weddings are becoming a market of their own, providing consumers with the chance to really make their once-in-a-lifetime event one they will never, ever forget.
