Destination Wedding – TOP 5 REASONS TO GET MARRIED IN GREECE
“Happy is the man, I thought, who, before dying, has the good fortune to sail the Aegean sea.”
– Nikos Kazantzakis, Zorba the Greek
Heart-stopping vistas, intimacy, exclusive service and the Aegean at your fee. Can you think of a better backdrop for romance?
Greece is a country of incredible history & tradition, the cradle of democracy in western civilization, and numerous philosophers, mathematicians, and artists’ birthplace. Apart from the above, what makes Greece a unique place and the best destination for your wedding, are its impressive and breathtaking sceneries.
So, whether you’re planning an intimate destination elopement, a romantic tiny destination wedding or a spectacularly glamorous destination wedding reception, I’d like to share with you why I consider Greece the ideal place for you and your guests to do so.
I am Ioanna, wedding planner and owner of For Good Times Event Planning and Design, with many years of experience in the wedding & event planning industry.
Here are my top 5 reasons to choose Greece for your destination wedding.
Reason #1 ROMANCE AT YOUR DOORSTEP
Suppose you envision a romantic destination wedding under the cheerful sun or among thousands of hundreds of enigmatic stars with incredible blue hues as a backdrop, to-die-for sunsets, and crystal clear water. In that case, Greece is your place to be. From little-known islands to wide-open landscapes, perfect sandy bays to significant landmarks and imposing mountains, your wedding in Greece will be magical and for sure a lifetime memory!
Reason #2 THE WEDDING FRIENDLY WEATHER
Greece follows a typical Mediterranean climate and enjoys on average more than 250 days of sunshine a year, making it one of the sunniest countries in the world and the most optimistic in Europe!
That means that you can pretty much expect amazing sunshine and clear blue skies whenever you choose for your destination wedding to take place in Greece. During the summer – from mid-May through September – sunny days are frequent, and prolonged stretches of rainy weather are uncommon. Though, if you are not into the heat of the summer, planning your destination wedding in Greece during the shoulder season – in springtime from March to May or in the fall from October to November – is still a fantastic idea and an excellent way to keep the overall budget down.
No matter what destination or what time of period you choose for your destination wedding in Greece, it will be a picture-perfect adventure!
Reason #3 THE GREEK HOSPITALITY
“True hospitality is marked by an open response to the dignity of each and every person. Henri Nouwen has described it as receiving the stranger on his own terms, and asserts that it can be offered only by those who ‘have found the center of their lives in their own hearts’.” – Henri Nouwen
If you’ve been to Greece before, you know exactly what I am talking about! Greeks say ‘philoxenia’, and this directly translates to ‘friend of strangers’. We still have the welcome mat out, after all, we are who make Greece. Greeks all over the country welcome visitors with open arms and their kind smiles. We always look forward to opening our country and our traditions to everyone. We are always excited to offer help and advice in any way we can and share our country’s true magic. Our big heart with our guests. apart from a unique experience, your destination wedding in Greece will be the beginning of finding new lifetime friends!
Reason #4 COMBINED WEDDING & HONEYMOON
