Wedding stories: Exotic Greece

Your actual wedding stories: Exotic Greece! 

As professional wedding planners in Greece, we often receive desperate messages from brides-to-be asking for information about their wedding abroad, the venues, the locations, the legal procedures and more. Usually, when these concerns are posted on social media, they are accompanied by dozens of comments. Indeed, some might be informative yet disorienting, which, judging from our experience, doesn't help much.

Before you let the stress overwhelm you, have you ever considered how much easier it would be to turn to a wedding planner? A professional who will handle every part of your wedding arrangements?

Let's look at a real example of a future bride-to-be and try to give some helpful answers to ease the worries.

Soraya is writing on our Facebook page:

"I'll be frank with you. I'm gutted having to marry in Europe. Mine and my partner's dream was already planned and arranged for Mexico. But his family lives in Ireland, so they refuse to go anywhere further than Europe (4.5 hours max on a plane).
So, I'm begging for ideas for a destination wedding in Greece. We initially chose Mexico because of the clear water, white sands, all-inclusive resorts and hot weather... Please tell me if there is somewhere in Greece that can at least meet most of what we are looking for.
Thank you so much in advance xx."

Dear Soraya, congratulations on your engagement and all the best wishes for your mutual journey in life.

We share your concern about changing your wedding plans for family reasons. But why not keep our positivity levels high while finding an alternative solution? After all, beautiful Mexico is not the only exotic place in the world. Greece can undoubtedly be a more surpassing destination.

When it comes down to it, choosing Greece as a wedding destination is an excellent solution that will satisfy both your family and you.

Exotic Wedding in Greece 

As mentioned in your message, what you dreamed of for your wedding is an exotic destination with turquoise waters and golden sands. Listening to your description, we assure you that your description matches 100% with the idyllic setting of a Greek island.

Did you know that Greece has approximately 6,000 islands, islets and rocky islets? Splendid and unique, they emerge like tiny pearls from the waters of the Aegean and the Ionian Sea.

Some are characterised by wild beauty, rocky mountains and gorgeous, unspoiled seashores. Some stand out for their cosmopolitan atmosphere, exotic golden beaches and lush vegetation.

And some others, like Mykonos and Santorini, combine all of the above, offering multiple options for weddings abroad. Plus, they provide direct flight connections to all the capitals of Europe at highly favourable prices.

One of the reasons that we highly recommend Mykonos and Santorini as wedding destinations in Greece is their centrobaric position. Situated in the heart of the Aegean, both islands are easy to reach. In plus, they offer short getaways to nearby islands, allowing discovering the splendour of hidden gems.

In both Mykonos and Santorini, the close distances are perfect for daily excursions to beaches and places of historical interest for you and your guests. At the same time, if all you are looking for is relaxation, the excellent five-star resorts will surely cover your every need.

Despite the solid touristic development of the islands, they preserve their incomparable beauty and fascinating atmosphere.

Greece is not only the islands

Usually, when we think of Greece, our mind automatically goes to the islands. However, Greece is not only the islands but also the excellent inland, with Athens holding a prominent position. Stunningly romantic and impressive, the Athenian Riviera is one of the most beautiful capital coastlines in the world. 

In short, the numerous wedding venues, the stunning beaches of exotic beauty, the cultural landmarks, the sunny weather, the short distance from the city centre, famous restaurants and luxurious hotels offer unforgettable experiences.

Therefore, combining romantic elegance with relaxed warmth, the Athenian Riviera is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful parts of Athens for your wedding celebration.
