weddings in greece Sealed with a kiss

How long does it take to plan a Wedding?

Although planning a wedding in Greece does take over 250 hours of planning and there are several choices and decisions that may seem overwhelming, when there is a clear process everything just falls into place. Your wedding can be a lovely intimate and minimal ceremony or as elaborate as you wish.

What does a planner do?

Selecting the ideal location, establishing a timeline of the day, planning all your logistics, budget analysis, design of space, decor elements,, staffing, vendor management, risk management, production and breakdown of the event are some of our main responsibiliites.

What are some challenges?

Having a wedding abroad requires extensive knowledge on the destination. With a local planner you do not have to think about language barriers and communication issues with vendors and venues. Setting the date is not so simple if you don’t know about the cultural festivals and events that may cause issues or distractions from your big day.

Will you host a Rehearsal Dinner or Cocktail Party?

Planning small events before or after the wedding such as a brunch, luncheon, beach BBQ, boat ride or a pool party will add that polished feel and believe me it makes all the difference. With the right planning these events will be incorporated into your budget with ease.

In order to make the best decisions you need to know your options and someone who can point you in the right direction. Selecting a destination that is lesser-known creates an atmosphere that puts you and your guests in the spotlight. I guarantee that many years later you will want to return to that special spot that is yours alone to celebrate your anniversary.

If you aren’t here in Greece to meet up with us, get in touch and book a free consultation. Let's share ideas and discuss any questions or concerns you may have.

Step One | Ceremony

A couple has a civil service ceremony


This is usually a very short ceremony that takes place in a city hall with the mayor lasting about 20 min. I will assist you with all the procedures, translations, and paperwork that needs to be prepared well in advance. If you would rather have the legal ceremony at a venue of your choice and not in the city hall, this is also possible. You may choose to keep it simple and sweet or you can continue with a party celebration at the venue of your choice.

The churches and chapels are a characteristic woven into the landscape. Churches of admired architecture towering proudly over village rooftops, chapels nesting on mountain peaks, sheltered in dense forests, on the seaside, or hidden in caves are an essential element of the island.
