What a Ride!
As we took the decision to make Ellwed Magazine a bi-yearly issue, I am excited to share with you this first issue of 2021- the Brighter Future Edition !
Almost half way into the year, so much has happened, yet so much still feels the same.
We are all hopeful for the vaccine in the battle against the Covid-19 pandemic, which hit the event and tourism industries the most! And yes, weddings and especially destination weddings were put to the standstill. It’s no secret we were all taken by surprise. But thanks to the vaccine, we can now see the brighter future for travel, weddings and events as well!

Well, the year of 2020 is probably going to be remembered for ever as the worst year for all couples who were planning their wedding then. But it was also the year that is making radical changes to our daily lives. And with that how we look at wedding planning in General! Innovation and growth is always exciting and it was especially needed in our world of weddings! We at Ellwed, for instance took this opportunity to bridge the gap between destination wedding planning and busy couples from around the world. Now you can consume all the information with ease through our new podcast series, Ellwed Talks. The first (and only) podcast about destination weddings in Greece, where you can get all the advice, get inspired from real brides and meet your suppliers!
So let’s rock this year and plan for the next big thing! Download your copy here
The New Year started with big hopes and dreams. However, we quickly realised that not much is going to change in 2021. In fact it feels very much similar to the 2020! Long lockdown periods and now the announcements of the sudden full reopening which in Greece started on May 14th. It all feels a bit surreal. On one hand I can’t believe it took so long but on the other, that more than a year at home, passed-by so fast. I can’t help but wonder. Can it all be over soon?
So for this new issue we want to give you an idea for alternative choices for your wedding day! In this online and digital world, anything is possible! But what I am excited the most is the ability to join all the virtual summits and fashion shows happening anywhere in the world at any time!
