Greece destination wedding. As the land of history and sun, Greece is the perfect destination for a traditional wedding in the open air. Enjoy a mild climate and breathtaking scenery by getting married in Greece.
A traditional wedding in Athens
Getting married in Athens
Athens is a dynamic and historical capital city situated by the sea. Let your guests choose between the riches of Athenian history – with the Acropolis, the Parthenon and the Agora – and the gentleness of the seaside. In Athens, there is something for everyone!
Invite your guests to stay in a magnificent, privately reserved hotel just a few kilometres from the sea and Athens airport. After your personalised wedding in the hotel or in one of Athens’ churches, you can have your guests enjoy a few days spent discovering the beauty of the Greek capital.
Visit Greece starting with Athens
From Athens, you can visit Marathon, the historical city of the Olympic Games, as well as Delphi.
Internal Greek flights are inexpensive, especially if booked in advance, so don’t hesitate to explore the islands of Corfu, Santorini and Mykonos.
An exotic wedding in Santorini
Getting married in Santorini
The island of Santorini is one of the best-known and most popular Greek islands for destination weddings. Its architecture, which is both typical and unusual, its steep shorelines and natural charm make this the perfect destination for your wedding.
Privately reserve one of the beautiful hotels on the island and enjoy an outdoor ceremony with views of the ocean. Your sojourn will give you the opportunity to rest and to take time enjoying the company of your loved ones.
To see in Santorini
In Santorini, you will be able to enjoy its landscapes, its architecture and its history. The ancient cities of Théa and Akrotiri should also be seen. The first was abandoned due to a drought in 630 BC, while the second was destroyed by a volcanic explosion – just like Pompeii. These two cities are magnificent representations of their time.
Getting married in Greece: practical information
Some information about Greece
A flight between France and Greece takes approximately three hours, with a one-hour time difference in the summer. The currency is the Euro, but the costs of this destination make it very accessible.
When to get married in Greece?
Keep in Secret recommends that you choose the off-season to get married in Greece, that is, April, May, June, September and October. You will thus be able to enjoy the mild Greek Mediterranean climate while avoiding the winter rains and the throngs of summertime tourists. In general, it is advisable to book six months to a year in advance to benefit from attractive rates.
Where to get married in Greece?
If Keep in Secret recommends a hotel for your wedding in Greece, it is due to us finding the choice particularly interesting. It is absolutely possible to organise your event in a different establishment, in a manor house or a luxury villa. However, if you are looking for a rustic wedding, Greece is not necessarily the ideal destination: there are few such buildings in this country.
We hope that this article has helped you make some decisions about your Greek wedding. Will it be the dynamism of Athens or the serenity of Santorini? Which destination do you like the most?
