If you missed the boat and didn’t propose to her in a New York helicopter, then maybe you should consider getting married in one. Most people truly want the big to-do with hundreds of guests and a big walk down the aisle. If you or your bride-to-be are one of those, this might not be the adventure for you, but there are many other ways of using a tour to get married.
I-Do’s in the Helicopter
For the ultimate wedding experience, consider saying, “I Do” while in a helicopter while zipping around famous areas of New York. This option is for those who want an incredibly small wedding. While up to six passengers can fit in one helicopter, you should also consider that it will be you, the bride and the clergyman. That means only three others will be allowed to witness your nuptials. If you two are planning to elope, this could be the perfect option.
The one downside to this option is that you will miss all the great sights because you will be saying your vows. However, if the thrill of the ride is what moves you, a helicopter tour around New York is the perfect option.
Ceremony Before Tour
Though very untraditional, you could consider inviting a few loved ones to a ceremony beside the helicopter. One great idea is to have friends and family (not too many!) stand facing the helicopter while the bride walks down the “aisle” that will lead her to the helicopter. You two could say your vows and then immediately take a helicopter tour around while everything is fresh in your mind, giving you both great memories to share with children or each other for many years to come.
For something like this, you will likely want to contact the company and make sure that people not taking the tour are allowed to be up there with you, as this may not be allowed in all cities.
Ceremony/Reception After Tour
Most brides prefer that their soon-to-be husbands don’t see them in their wedding outfit before the actual wedding because it’s bad luck. However, you and your fiancé could choose to take the New York helicopter tour in regular clothes, then go get ready and have the ceremony and reception traditionally. If you don’t care about superstition, you two could be in your wedding ensembles and take your tour before the ceremony.
