7 steps to start planning your destination wedding in Greece

The question has been popped, the answer was yes, you both have your hearts set on a Greek destination wedding, but where to start? I have put together a 7 step guide to help you get started on planning your own Greek dream wedding:-

Select your destination:
Select the area of Greece where your dream day will take place – perhaps a favourite island that holds special memories for you both, consider the venue you would like your ceremony to take place, maybe a beach, an olive grove or a small chapel on a mountainside.

Getting there:
Check the accessibility of your destination from the airports you and your guests will be flying from, maybe your chosen island doesn’t have its’ own airport, don’t let this put you off, a group transfer arranged by your planner will solve this problem for you and all of your guests – this could be an ice breaker between guests who have yet to meet making it a fun way to start your wedding celebrations.

Your budget:
Take time to sit down together and discuss your budget, how much you can afford to save, maybe families will contribute to some of the budget. Consider the components that will make up your wedding and which areas are most important to you :- photography, the lasting memory of your wedding day, catering – the menu, buffet or seated, flowers – bouquets, buttonholes and venue decoration, the styling of your venue, transportation – for you and your guests to the venue.

Paperwork
Wherever you decide to get married there will be a certain amount of paperwork required by the local town hall, there is nothing complicated or daunting about the paperwork process, your planner will be able to assist with requirements in the location you have chosen.

The guest list:
Deciding on your guest list is key, generally around 10% – 15% of invited guests will decline on the RSPV for a destination wedding. Consider your budget as the amount of invitees will have an impact – the larger the guest list the more tables will be required, which in turn will mean more flowers / table decorations, your ideal venue capacity will also play a role on numbers – a villa venue will lend itself to a more intimate wedding, a beach or olive grove will be able to accommodate more people. Consider the logistics of the venue, is it accessible for all invitees?

The chosen day:
Before planning can get started or ‘save the date’ cards can be sent you will need to choose the date. Do you prefer a spring wedding when the wild flowers are at their best and it’s not so hot, do school holidays need to be considered for some guests. A September wedding when the hustle and bustle of August is over and sea temperatures are best. High or low season, weekend or mid-week are other considerations with regards to you budget.

Choosing your planner:
Now you have chosen your destination, you have the guest list, your ideal venue and the date, now it’s time to select the best planner for you to assist with making all your dreams a reality – do some research on the planners available in the area of Greece you are interested in, do they plan the style of wedding you are looking for? Are they based in that area? Get in touch and request a free consultation to find out how they work and to see if you have a good connection. Your planner will become your new best friend in the months leading up to your wedding so it’s important you have a good rapport with the person who will be planning the day of your dreams.
