full planning: when do you need it?
Destination weddings are very popular in Greece, especially during the summertime, when beaches and the landscape of the islands are absolutely gorgeous. Greece offers a lot of options in order to find the perfect location for your destination wedding: you may therefore choose a beautiful, unique destination wedding venue on the caldera of Santorini overlooking the Aegean sea, in the sandy beaches of Mykonos island, in a charming chapel, in a luxury private villa or in one of the wedding venues that in these years have been opened.
You can have a reception you desire, whether it’s an intimate dinner after the ceremony, an amazing party or a lavish reception in an elegant restaurant. There are numerous available alternatives and we can guarantee you a fabulous entertainment, creativity and a custom-made destination weddings package.
Our company specializes in destination weddings and we offer a full-service package and wedding planning based on your personal style and your specific requirements. We are proud to present a portfolio of unique themed destination weddings in several Greek Island, especially in Santorini, Mykonos, Crete and the Athens riviera.
Our offer includes everything you possibly need for a flawless carefree wedding preparation and we are available to work from the conceptual idea of your wedding, to the very last day of the ceremony, with great commitment and passion.
A to Z planning: we take care of everything.
If you have no free time because of a demanding job, or if you have no clue where to start when it comes to planning, and your organizational skills aren’t the greatest; if you have a very short time frame for planning, or if you’re throwing a destination wedding and/or a wedding weekend involving multiple events, you need a complete planning. As it implies, this service is all encompassing; everything from theme design and the overall concept to welcome gift assembly and everything in between. Perhaps most notably, contract negotiation and site scouting are included in this level of service.
What does full planning include?
- Preliminary phone/WhatsApp meeting
- Sourcing of venues and vendors
- Meetings with vendors (with or without the couple)
- Contract review and price negotiation

Bespoke wedding website
A wedding website is probably the best platform for bringing your guests together in one virtual place. We set it up and then post as much information as you want. It will make planning your event much easier, especially if you can set up alerts to notify people of any changes or news on the site.
While the website provides information, you can also set up your virtual wedding gift list, send out invitations and get RSVPs sent directly to the site and then set up your table plan online. This keeps all your essential wedding information in one handy place without lots of pieces of paper floating around in a file.
If you add the site’s address to your invitations, your guests should hopefully spend a little of their monthly time online actually checking it, therefore saving on phone calls to you or your mum asking for details about the big day. We can also add directions to your venue and nearby hotels and B&Bs.
What does day-of coordination include?
- Supervision of the setting of the ceremony venue and reception venue
- Contacts with the Client, the family and vendors
- Itinerary and logistic management
- Contacts with the staff of the venue and tasks assignment
- Supervision of vendor arrival, set-up
- Final payments, gratuities & reconciliation
- Personal assistant (12 hours)
Additional dedicated assistant(s) to the couple and/or Master of Ceremonies can be required separately, as well as other tailor-made services.
