Tell us about the smaller details of the day…
The smaller details made the venue in all honesty. I took a lot out with me such as my favour boxes which were little grey boxes with “love” on. I had wooden names made for the place names, a guest book to match the theme, a sign displayed with “wedding rules” that went on our table. I also took out little rhinestones and gems that the wedding planners placed on the tables.
We also had a MR and MRS sign, flowers with beads, mason jars hanging from the trees, fairy lights and beautiful flower arrangements on the gazebo.
The cake we chose was a traditional Greek style wedding cake in lemon and chocolate flavour.
The menu we opted for was the bbq menu and it was perfect for the laid back vibe we wanted. The guests loved the food as in the heat we didn’t want to be sat down for hours.
What’s your best memory from the day?
From start to finish. The whole day was a perfect memory.
What do you think makes a wedding abroad stand out from a wedding in the UK?
The setting, the photos, the sea, the weather, the calmness on your wedding day, everything is done for you, the price. It’s also a holiday as well as a wedding.
What advice would you give to future brides and grooms who are getting married abroad?
Don’t stress, it will be the best thing you ever do. Enjoy every single moment, from planning to the big day.
Did you stick to your original budget or go over/or even stay under?
I didn’t have a budget as such, we gauged everything as we went along and made a decision from the price there and then. Our budget allowed us to have a party back home and we had everything we wanted abroad and didn’t hold back.
