WHAT TO DO

1. Choose your wedding date.

True, this could be impacted by the availability of your venue, so it's not bad to have a second choice date. But have the dates in mind, because many venues in Greece are booked in advance even 1.5 year prior to the wedding.

2. Make a wise wedding guest list.

The time you choose to get married and the venue you can afford to have your reception may be affected by size of your wedding guest list. Many brides and grooms opt for their Greek destination wedding after they find their "must invite" list at home has grown to enormous proportions. Save yourself the headache by building a wise wedding guest list and then ask your Greek wedding planner to find you the perfect venue for them.

3. Choose the location and venue with your Greek planner.

Unless you have explored your destination numerous times before, and even if you have, there are chances you don't know everything about it. Your well-versed Greek wedding planner will assist you by doing serious research and will not have you sign any agreements unless they are certain the place is just what you are looking for. Allow them to consider the parametres and get you all the information about what things really cost. Services charges, location fees and hidden costs do not apply when a wedding planner knows their job. In fact they will secure you better dealing with big hotels and resorts, compare the prices for you and ask the questions you are dying to know. Feel secure about your decision and move on to step no4.

4. Lock in the wedding venue.

Your wedding date or location needs to stay under the veil as far as guests are concerned until you have the location and venue of your dreams under contract. If you are dreaming of using a public beach, or an historic place in Greece, your wedding planner will research and obtain all the necessary permits and permissions. Once you have a countersigned contract from your Greek wedding venue then you have a location you can talk about to your wedding guests.

5. Send out your destination wedding invites.

Guests who will be traveling to Greece from afar will hands down appreciate as much lead time as you can afford, so they can arrange for their travel plans and take the necessary leave, or keep their passports up to date! Your Greek wedding planner will assist you in creating a travel information bundle for everyone and make the necessary hotel arrangements so that you and your guests can enjoy the grandeur of your Greek destination wedding and the luxuries of this magnificent holiday with you!
