Destination Wedding in Greece: Things only a planner knows!

As a destination wedding planner in Greece, we’ve seen plenty of destination weddings in the last 15 years! Couples from all over the world opt for this type of wedding, and we couldn’t blame them! It’s stunning! If you have a serious case of wanderlust, you might consider planning a destination wedding, too. Given that marriage trends are constantly evolving; the definition of a destination wedding has taken on a totally new meaning today. If you find yourself wondering, “What is a destination wedding exactly?” we’re here to help!

What Is a Destination Wedding in Greece?

Traditionally, a destination wedding is a ceremony that’s hosted outside of the couple’s hometown, which requires travel for most (if not all) of those involved. These weddings are commonly associated with picturesque wedding locations in Greece, like Mykonos or Santorini! In 2019, nearly one in four couples hosted a destination wedding, proving that they’re a great alternative to a traditional ceremony. With plenty of charming wedding venues throughout Greece it’s not surprising that destination weddings are a trend on the rise. While some couples select their location for its sentimental value, others are choosing their wedding city simply because they like it!

The average cost of a destination wedding in Greece is constantly changing as well. Our speculations for this year indicate that couples are more focused than ever on planning a personalized, memorable experience for their guests, as opposed to a one-day celebration. There are plenty of ways for couples to reinvent the traditional wedding ceremony. Some continue the celebration with a sequel wedding, while others host a micro-wedding with a macro-budget. By putting the emphasis on love and celebration, modern couples are putting their personal spins on tradition. And given that destination weddings continue to rise in popularity year over year, it’s likely that more couples will continue to host their nuptials in a special place that’s far from home!

You don’t have to be limited to photoshoots just at your resort. In fact, we encourage you not to stay put, because you’ll have enough photos there at your wedding. Instead, go out and explore the area, have fun with locals, go shopping, and anything else you want to do. Your photographer will soak up the natural lighting and capture beautiful memories as you’re out having fun. The photo opportunities in Greece are endless!

Destination Wedding in Greece: They’re Cost-Effective

The affordability of a destination wedding has many couples speeding off to the airport faster than you can say “I do.” For instance, a couple can fly to an all-inclusive resort in Santorini, get married, and stay for a deluxe week long honeymoon for a few thousand dollars, including lodging, meals, drinks and airfare. Compare that with an 150-guest wedding costing about $36,000—which can easily skyrocket to more than $100,000 in big cities of America. (Not to mention a few extra thousand for a honeymoon.) This is one of the main reasons couples choose to have a destination wedding in Greece without compromising their luxury tastes!
