AW1 3750 Edit

In this article, we will give you what you need for planning your wedding in Greece in 10 steps.

Are you ready? Let's start!

1. Set a date and have a thought regarding the number of guests

Why is that important?

Setting a date will help a lot to check the availability of the venues and the vendors. 

Knowing approximately the number of guests will help a lot at the venue scouting. 

Tip: If you organize a micro wedding in Crete or an elopement, avoid venues that are made for more than 150 guests. Smaller venues will make your wedding party funnier and comfier.


2. Choose the style of the wedding

Why is that important?

Finding the style of your wedding in Crete will help you a lot with the final decision of the venue. The wedding venue should follow the style of decoration.

Are you interested in a boho wedding in Crete? Choose a simple venue in minimal line and not modern touches. 

Tip: Get inspiration from Pinterest

4. Set a budget

Why is that important?

We know it's not so easy to set a budget for your wedding. However, it will help you a lot later to decide which vendors and venues will choose.

Tip: Ask your wedding planner to do the budget management for you!


5. Choose the ceremony and the reception venue

Your wedding venues should be based on your style, budget, and location. 

If you are looking for a traditional wedding in Crete, choose a winery for your reception.

Tip: Before you book your wedding venues, check their policy, the terms, and the music limitation to ensure that you and your guests will be parting until morning none stop.


6. Book your vendors as soon as possible

 Why is that important?

 That may make you feel stress but booking your favorite vendors soon is really important as just 2-3 months before the wedding the best vendors will be booked and you will have to find a new one.

 Tip: Don't forget to sign a contract with the vendors you book.


7. Save the date

 Why is that important?

 About  7-12 months before the wedding you need to announce your thoughts of a destination wedding to your guests. In this way, they will have time to search and book their flights and accommodation for your wedding in Crete.

 Tip: Create a website, where you will have all the details of the wedding for your guests.


8. Create your wedding website

 Why is that important?

Share all the details your guests need on your wedding website. Let them know which airport to choose, which area to prefer for their stay, post some places that they should visit in Crete, inform them regarding the wedding timeline, etc.


9. Travel to Greece

It's time to travel to Greece for your amazing destination wedding in Crete. Ensure that you have with you everything you need... wedding dress, wedding shoes, rings, etc.

Tip: Make a list of what you need to have with you in your luggage to ensure that you will not forget anything.



The wedding day has come.

If there is something you should do, is to enjoy every little moment of your Big Day. The stage is yours...!

Tip: Your wedding planner will always stand by you during the wedding planning. So, he will be there on your Big Day to ensure that everything is running as you have dreamed.
