We all plan our weddings fervently because we want out most important day to be one of the best moments of our life. We imagine ourselves dressed in a beautiful wedding dress, standing in a grand palace, in a huge banquet hall or amid the scintillating view of the beach.

But no, not all couples wish for a fairy-tale wedding. This daredevil couple tied the knot by rigging up a series of slacklines 400 feet above a daunting canyon, at the Fruit Bowl Highline Area, near Moab, Utah, USA.

Slacklining is basically walking across a bouncy, single piece of webbing that is suspended above the ground.

The heart racing video of Mickey and Purple Wilson's wedding shows the pair delicately making their way across the static ropes before meeting on a net star in the middle.

Mickey was extremely exhilarated at their unique wedding. It was the happiest day of my life, he said.

We had been dreaming and working and changing plans since January, so once I was out on the net and saw Purple walking towards me on that slackline that we had made and rigged together, I knew this was exactly the right direction my life was supposed to be heading.

The two professional slackliners, Mickey, 29, and Purple, 35, wanted to incorporate the sport into their big day, planning and setting up the whole event themselves.

Special precautions were taken: Purple wore a climbing harness under her dress along with a safety tether while she walked the slackline; Mickey, not wanting a harness outside his stylish suit, opted for a rope to be tied from the slackline to his ankle.

We are sure their thrilling wedding plan has urged you to think again. So, what will you do on your special day?
