Wedding Dress For Use In Space

Wedding Dress

June is almost here and I've been thinking about the brides who will need a dress for their wedding, should they carry out their celebration in space. After all, life will go on there.

Eri Matsui designed these wedding dresses for a Space Couture Design Contest supported by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency. The dress to the left can be worn in gravity, and the one on the right in zero gravity; however, both will look exceptional under either condition.

Her design stimulates our dream that we may get married in space soon. Excuse me, I just remembered something. I had better call Eri Matsui. We're going to need a tuxedo to go with that.
