Destination weddings have no season, you can go abroad and get married anytime. Couples usually choose warm or even tropical locations like Mexico, Vietnam, Bali, Thailand, India or Spain. I’d like to inspire you with one more cool idea to consider: Greece. More and more couples choose this beautiful country with antique traditions to get married, and that’s not surprising: Greece has a lot of places of interest, beautiful nature, stunning sea and hearty people. Santorini island is the most popular Greek location because it’s a beautiful white place in the blue and turquoise sea. Let’s have a look at some Greek wedding ideas.

Location

Take advantage of the location you have: Greece is so beautiful that it can be a perfect backdrop for every type of wedding. Take as many outdoor photos as possible, they all will be stunning! Narrow stone-clad streets of every Greek island are amazing for taking memorable pics. Blue, turquoise and white are characteristic colors of Greek islands, and you can highlight them choosing attire and décor in the same shades. Ceremony spots and receptions with a stunning sea view will excite everyone!

Wedding Dress

Wanna look like a real Greek goddess? Choose a Grecian wedding gown! Grecian wedding dresses are airy and flowy, mostly draped and embellished. The most popular options here are one shoulder or strap V neckline wedding gowns. Take embellished straps if any and a gorgeous thin or wide embellished belt. Opt for light and airy fabrics if you don’t want to sweat too much. Highlight your look with a tiara and voila!

Other Ideas

Blue, turquoise and white are traditional colors of Greek islands, there are houses, gates and roofs in these shades. You can highlight them even more using the same colors in your wedding color palette. Use olive leaves instead of confetti, give paper or wooden fans as favors to your guests; fresh olive oil or soap can be another great idea. Choose Greek salad skewers as the best fresh appetizer and Greek wedding cookies for desserts.
