How to choose a dress for a wedding in Greece

Hello, girls! You might know that Greece is a holidays destination country. The island of Crete is the southernmost island of Greece. It has 300 sunny days a year. Amazing statistics, isn’t it? The perfect climate of Crete allows us to organize  the outdoor event from early April till November.  Actually, for your wedding in Crete you can choose a wedding dress of any design and fabric. It all depends on the place where the wedding reception will take place.

Lets say you choose the venue on the beach. A beach wedding is a romantic affair. But it does require some special planning, especially when it comes to your dress. It also should  be suitable for the sand, sun and sea breeze.  So forget those heavy ball gowns and excessive trains and opt for something a little lighter and more whimsical instead.  It should also be comfortable and easy to move in it while being free from excessive embellishments and bold details.

The location of your wedding may not be the traditional choice, but that doesn’t mean you need to break every rule. A classic white wedding dress is the dream for many brides-to-be and can look seriously beautiful against a beach backdrop. To find the perfect white gown for your sandy ceremony, steer clear of overly structured and embellished designs. Not only can such dresses be uncomfortable, but they can also appear out of place. Instead, you should embrace your calm surrounding with a gown that’s breezy and beautiful. Lightweight lace and chiffon styles are especially ideal.

Check the site of one of my favorite Greek wedding designer Katya Delatola. She specializes in producing wedding dresses for Greek brides-to-be and takes into consideration the possible combination of the heat and the humidity. There are some days in July and August when the level of humidity goes high and it creates this “sauna” effect.

If your wedding will take place at the mountains, I would advice you to get a jacket for your wedding look. It can be chilly in the evening. Visit the site of the one of the famous wedding atelier in Athens.  Zolotas follows the old, even ancient, Greek wedding dress traditions and probably you would be interested to have a look to the dresses produced by the atelier. The Greek designers use lace a lot. For extra relief from the heat, select a flowing lace design without sleeves. A strapless, halter-neck, off-the-shoulder or spaghetti-strapped style will appear particularly feminine while also keeping your arms cool.

Here you can get some inspiration to check the best wedding dresses for  beach ceremonies.

  • Pre-wedding photo shot at the winery is not a common place. Couples come to Crete to have fun by the sea 🌊🌊🌊 It was a such a heat on the wedding day of Olesia and Dmitry, that I proposed them an idea to escape and to take some rest underground 😉🍷🍇. The winery cellar seemed to be a good idea. Olesia and Dmitry and a photographer  enjoyed it so much, that we were about to be seriously late to the civil ceremony 🤭🤭🤭 📸 by Egor Matasov. 🍇Dourakis winery. There are picturesque wineries all over the Crete.

  • There are big wedding venues in Crete, there re villas and estates. The rental fees starts from 800 euro. If you are going to have a small intimate wedding here, I would advice you how to save money and to spend it for something else. There are many hidden spots in Crete. It can be your perfect venue. 📲 +306980871621 🤗🤗🤗 Again, we just highlighted the real beauty of the venue where the ceremony took place 🌼🌼🌼 #crete #weddingincrete #weddingcrete #destinationweddinggreece #weddingplannergreece #weddingtips #weddingvenuesgreece #weddingvenuecrete #weddingdecor #intimatewedding #islandwedding #visitgreece #couplegoals #weddingwire #bridetobe #wedding2020 #weddingwire #rustic #rusticwedding #engaged
  • Love this intimate wedding setup, created for another beautiful couple Olga and Denis.

  • The most popular combination for the wedding decoration in Crete is olive branches and anything white - flowers, ribbons, etc 🌿 Hmmm.. I would call this wedding decor concept “defiant and provocative” though 😋😋😋 Do you love colors as Crete Within does?😍 PS that was expensive 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ but outstanding 🌟🌟🌟 #colorful #colorfulwedding #crete #weddingincrete #cretewedding #destinationweddinggreece #destinationweddingcrete #creteweddingplanner #cretewithinwedding #weddingdecor #olivetree #rainbow #greekgateaway #yesido #bridetobe #bridalflowers #engaged #couplegoals #weddinggreece #shesaidyes #weddinginspiration #крит #свадьбанакрите
  • Personally me, I like colors. Pictures from Crete could be much brighter but  there s a wedding photography trend “to wash away” colors 😉😉😉 Pink-White-Yellow flower combination looks good 💐 Special thanks to florist @kentiaflcreations !

  • This shot of me made by 💓 @irini_koronaki_photography represents a moment  I am on mission to get the best prices from vendors for my clients 😁😁😁 Negotiations... it’s a huge part of wedding planner’s job. From one side we should protect the couple’s interest, from the other - to respect the vendor’s terms.☝️☝️☝️ While planning your destination wedding, it makes sense to have someone on-site.

  • Every time we start to discuss a wedding cake 🍰, I always tell to a couple: in Crete there are 3 categories of the pastry-shops: 1 can to implement any “expensive” design - golden leaves, “marble” technic, etc; 2 type provides the “fashion” tasty cakes; 3 type creates cakes, which have simple design but are EXTREMELY tasty!  This one made by @the_cream_society belongs to the third category 😍 #weddingincrete #weddingcake #destinationweddingcrete #greeceweddingplanner #cretewithinweddings #cretewithinweddings_consult #greekgateaway #bridetobe #shesaidyes #intimatewedding #rethymno #crete #bridetobe2020 #weddingphotographercrete #destinationweddingplanner #engaged #свадьбанакрите #крит #критвнутри #свадебныйторт #свадьбанаморегреция #невеста #вкусно #lessismore #peonies #пионы
  • Summer heat is there ☀️ I put AC on +16C otherwise my computer will be overheated.

  • A real challenge  for a wedding planner is to provide smart solutions for a wedding with a limited budget. If you are able to do, then you can do anything 🌟 Also I believe the biggest advantage of having marriage on the shiny island of Crete is that the picturesque sceneries are already there 🌸 No need to spend a fortune to decorate a place of ceremony/reception. This time we found amazing patio at the heart of the Old Town 😍 We just underlined its beauty  @rimondiboutiquehotels #cretewithinweddings_venue #weddingincrete photo by @hannamonika florals by @manfler.florist #cretewedding #destinationwedding #weddingplanneringreece #engaged #destinationweddingplanner #intimatewedding #weddingvenuecrete #exoticwedding #weddingdecor #lessismore #bridetobe #wedding2020 #islandwedding #diywedding #elopementwedding #yesido #couplegoals #reddish #крит #свадьбанакрите #критвнутри_свадьба #помолвка #свадьбанаморегреция
