Do you know a couple alive that wouldn’t want a unique wedding? We don’t! Believe us, therefore, when we say that hot air balloon weddings are just the thing. Even better is the fact that they come with a diversity of ways to say ‘I do’.
Step into the Balloon
Step inside the balloon, will you? Once in, it will be inflated with cool air and then quickly heated so the air can help it to rise. The inside of a partially-inflated balloon is nothing short of dazzling; the colourful and whirlwind backdrop does that. Truth be told, the hot air balloon will unveil a picturesque wedding and deliver on stunning wedding photographs.
Go up a whole 3,000 Feet
Dare to touch the heavens, fly high. Get married up in the air. Yes! This is recommended by Troy Bradley, a balloon pilot from Rainbow Ryders, who holds 64 international balloon records (he’s crossed the Atlantic and Pacific in a balloon, twice). He specifically recommends getting married in the basket of the hot air balloon.
We hope your guests are as adventurous as you are; they too can come along on the ride, along with the minister. Some baskets are bigger than others, but most can easily accommodate your witnesses. Some balloon baskets are big enough for your entire immediate family.
Make It a Balloon Weekend
Ever pictured what an early morning in a balloon might feel like? Clean and fresh air, quite the tease! It is arguable the most exciting wedding-guest activity and even beats destination activities like golfing.
You might be shaky at first, but don’t fret. Once settled in, the balloon should make you feel like the world is at your feet. A trip so smooth it will be talked about long after you return to normal.
Tip though: Wait until the balloon has reached the maximum height then start the celebrations, will you? Up there, it comes with no interruptions, not even the sound of the burner flame features here.
