Asking someone to marry you inflight is seriously overdone. El Al even lets you redeem miles for an inflight marriage proposal kit. Getting married on a plane is a little better.
There’s no real reason you have to tie the knot up in the air though. Because if you can clear security, you might as well get married inside your airline’s lounge like Julie Kay & Vince Bonnetti did this morning in Nashville!
CONGRATULATIONS to Julie Kay & Vince Bonnetti, who were married in the @AmericanAir Airlines Admirals Club at BNA this morning! They wanted to be married here at BNA because it feels like home to them, and we're honored to have played host to their celebration. #WeLoveWeddings pic.twitter.com/EfGYmlm64E

If it were me though, and I’m just thinking out loud, I think I’d want to swing for the fences and do it in a Flagship Lounge and not just the Admirals Club.
There’s plenty of champagne on ice to begin with.
Your guests can can mix their own cocktails.
Of course there’s a buffet.
Perhaps you could even work with Corporate Communications and get the rehearsal dinner put on inside the Flagship First Dining facility?
It’s probably a whole lot easier to do a wedding inside a less exclusive lounge though. The Flagship lounge will require everyone to either be traveling in business class or to have sufficient airline status.
On the other hand you can get an American Airlines credit card that bundles lounge access, get 10 no annual fee authorized user cards, and then have each of the 11 cards bring in two guests apiece. Now you have 33 people — including bride, groom, and officiant — inside the club.
Want something even easier? Get married inside a Priority Pass lounge. Chase Sapphire Reserve cardmembers get unlimited guests with their Priority Pass membership, subject to lounge capacity constraints.
Erica Virvo who works at Nomadic Matt may have set some kind of a record for guesting people into a lounge.
