  1. Contact a wedding planner in Greece

It is a fact that some couples choose to undertake the organisation themselves to reduce the expenses of the wedding. As a result, they get carried away in a complicated evaluation process of venues, suppliers, etc. Additionally, they turn for "help" in groups and forums, asking for suggestions from other couples. Of course, market research is essential, and indeed, different couples' experiences can provide us with helpful information.

However, at the end of the day, nothing can be compared with the professional experience of a wedding planner. Regarding destination weddings in Greece, the wedding planner is the specialist whose knowledge and expertise of the local market will assure the absolute success of your wedding reception in Greece.

A wedding planner is your trusted partner in the destination country, who will take care of every detail months in advance and ensure everything runs smoothly. He is your mediator in a foreign country, your trusted professional who will deal with any eventuality and provide effective solutions. So before choosing to organise your wedding yourself, think about the actual cost, not only in money but also in time.

How do you imagine the ideal wedding abroad? Is it in the picturesque square of a Greek island or a luxury hotel's illuminated courtyard? Is it in a beautiful seaside chapel or on the golden sands of a lacy beach? In Greece, all of your dreams and desires will come true.

A wedding reception in a luxury hotel is an excellent and suitable choice to host a wedding celebration for multiple reasons. Some benefits are the impeccable service and the possibility to combine the reception with the stay. This is an exciting option, as the guests and the couple will not be bothered with transportation, and they will enjoy both the ceremony and the wedding celebration in a unique atmosphere.

On the other hand, if you are one of those couples, who would like their wedding to be original and break away from the established, then an alternative reception venue is an excellent solution.

If, for example, you love wine and gastronomy, a wedding in a vineyard will fulfil your dreams. On the other hand, if you love history and are fascinated by ancient civilisations, a castle wedding exudes the magic you are looking for. The ideas are endless.

From stunning arches to luscious flower arrangements, the professional vision of a wedding decorator turns a wedding design into a fabulous celebration.

Depending on the theme of the wedding or the season, you can add beautiful natural elements to the decoration, such as dried leaves, logs, pine cones and anything you can find on a walk in the countryside. Spring may inspire you to place pots of aromatic herbs, fruit or shells, sand and wood from the beach.

Delicate greens, which occupy a small part of the table, will add intensity without weighing down the decoration. Olive, rosemary and lavender are excellent choices for a summer wedding in Greece.

Wedding in Greece is your trusted local wedding planner who will bring your dream wedding to life.
