Get A Head Start On Planning Your Wedding For 2021
It’s true that the COVID-19 pandemic that’s currently sweeping the globe has disrupted our daily lives, brought unexpected changes, and affected all of our plans. Though this is undoubtedly a difficult situation, remember that there’s always something positive to every situation. Stay Strong.
Whether you’ve postponed your wedding or were already planning it for 2021, there’s no time like the present to get a head start with planning your dream wedding in Greece. After all, looking ahead and envisioning your big day is a surefire way to maintain a healthy dose of optimism and keep you smiling. Let’s get started!
Pick Your Wedding Date
There are so many factors that go into planning a wedding, all of which can be majorly affected by the date that you choose. Arguably, the best months to get married in Greece are May, June, and September when the days are sunny but not too hot. July and August are also great options, especially if you are a summer lover dreaming of a beach wedding on one of the celebrated Greek islands.
If you’re working with a particular budget then consider planning in the low (winter) or middle (early spring, late fall) season as this can save you a bit of money on venue rentals and other vendor expenses. Before you decide, be sure to check-in with some of your (most important) guests to see about their availability!
Choose The Wedding Location
From bustling cities to unspoiled islands with long sandy bays to romantic ruins and mountain style weddings with sensational views, Greece has endless destination possibilities. Whether you’re looking for an off-the-beaten-track destination like Kimolos or a place full of history like Nafplio, there’s a wedding destination in Greece that’s just right for you, even if you’re thinking about planning a winter wedding in Greece too.
Decide On The Theme
The theme is one of the most important aspects of your wedding as it sets the overall impression and experience that your guests will have at your event. There are so many details and elements to choose from though, making the decision feel a little overwhelming. The decision-making process becomes a little simpler when you have a trusted wedding planner by your side who will help you choose the style that works best for you whether it is modern, ethnic, romantic, rustic, minimal or boho-chic!
Plan Your Pre-Wedding Bachelor/Bachelorette Party
Hosting a fun bachelor party, the most anticipated pre-wedding event, isn’t a piece of cake so we always recommend planning ahead! There are certain things you need to take into account such as picking a theme and deciding on the date, which – despite the general belief – shouldn’t be the night before your wedding. Also, be sure that you invite a smaller number of guests so it’s easier to keep them entertained. Luckily, Greece is full of majestic destinations and planning a yacht party, beach party, or pool party are just a couple of the unforgettable experiences we can plan for you.
Choosing A Wedding Dress
Purchasing a wedding dress may be an extremely important investment, but it is also one of the most stressful aspects of a wedding day. Aside from it being a reflection of your unique personality and bridal style, it should be in-line with the overall theme of the wedding, it should embrace your body type and make you feel confident and at the same time, it should fall within budget. If you’re already feeling overwhelmed, start compiling a visual file of what your dream wedding dress looks like and let your local wedding planner know in advance – it will save you a ton of time!
Design Your Invitations & Stationery
Did you know that your invitations can round out your wedding style and set the tone for your celebration? You should start thinking about what you want to include in your wedding invitation suite, for example, response cards, “Thank You” notes or “Save The Date” cards. When it comes to designing your stationery, get inspired by your wedding theme, venue, and overall color palette. Of course, a local wedding planner like MILI LO can take this burden off of your shoulders, all you need to do is share your vision with us.
