Discover why Greece is a Top Choice for Destination Weddings! Couples are spoilt for choice when they choose Greece for their special day. These days Greece is a top choice for couples searching for the perfect venue for their destination wedding.
Where do you want to get married? Greek Island or mainland?
There are literally hundreds of Greek Islands to choose from for your destination wedding in Greece.
Do you dream of a romantic wedding overlooking the stunning Caldera in Santorini? Maybe you are looking for an Island with plenty of activities for children and teens? Good examples would be Crete or Rhodes.
Are you wanting to dance the nights away at a lively hot spot? Immediately the Island of Mykonos comes to mind.
Are you hunting for a classic Greek spot, perhaps outside a small, whitewashed chapel? Do you want to have your ceremony on the beach at the water’s edge? Perhaps, a small less touristy Island like Chalki, Sifnos or Tinos would be the perfect venue for your destination wedding in Greece?
There are literally hundreds of tiny Islands to choose from. Often, a ferry ride away from the nearest airport, only adds to their charm. It will feel like stepping back in time.
Is your fairy tale wedding location on the mainland, perhaps on the Athenian Riviera? That area combines 5* luxury hotels and private villas with fabulous beaches, and many one-of-a-kind VIP wedding venues. Many couples choose Athens if they are traveling intercontinental. This will avoid adding extra internal flights for family and friends.
They can spend their free time exploring the magnificent city of Athens, the Acropolis, and its wonderful museum, one of the best in the world.
Destination weddings were back on!
As we head towards the busiest time of the year for destination wedding bookings in Greece, now is the time to reflect on the past few months. Let’s think back to early 2021, there was still uncertainty around travel. Back then, it was very hard for couples who were planning weddings abroad to stay positive. Many postponed their nuptials for yet another year whilst others tried to stand firm, whilst keeping their eyes glued to every travel update either on the TV or online.
All the wedding suppliers in Greece remained flexible, informative, and kept their couples updated about the local situation in Greece, whilst dealing with their anxieties on a daily basis. And as the days passed, surprise, surprise, we had weddings!
The last-minute wedding.
From May 2021 our visitors returned to Greece. With the use of vaccination certificates and testing, couples finally had their chance to say ‘I do’ with their nearest and dearest present.
It was certainly the summer of the last-minute wedding. Wedding planners had to have all their skills in place to deal with last-minute arrangements for couples at the eleventh hour. These couples literally booked their weddings up just days in advance.
Intimate elopement weddings in Greece.
Intimate elopement-style weddings were trending and were always truly special. Pampas grass was a popular part of any ceremony setup! Couples chose, stunning florals, and amazing venues. Dinner for two, with fairy lights to set the scene, under the clear starry Grecian skies. Sounds amazing right?
Our expert Greek photographers and videographers and drone operators were there to capture every moment. Those local to the area always knew the perfect spot to get that amazing shot. Many couples had a live stream of their ceremony to any family and friends back home.
What do all destination weddings in Greece have in common?
Every destination wedding in Greece this summer, large or small, they all had something in common. This was a whole lot of happy tears! Some couples were already on their 2nd or 3rd wedding date and when their special day finally arrived, they couldn’t really believe it. We all cried a lot. The couple, their family and friends and all the wedding suppliers involved!
So here is a shout-out to all wedding suppliers in Greece who helped so many couples enjoy the best day of their lives during summer 2021. And yes, we cannot wait to get started all over again.
