The Perfect Setting For A Yacht Wedding
Do you want your wedding to stand out from the rest? If you haven’t yet considered making it a yacht wedding, you should do so now. And there’s no better place for a yacht wedding than Greece.
A yacht charter in Greece is more affordable than you think, and you can request the services of a captain and crew on board. Once the wedding formalities are over, your nautical nuptials can turn into a yacht party, en route to the location of your more formal wedding reception party.
With countless small islands to choose from, each with its own unique terrain and natural beauty, you’re sure to find a suitable spot for your wedding reception. And while being transported there by boat, your guests will get to enjoy the magnificent surroundings and maybe even catch a magical sunset.
One of the main reasons why Greece is the ideal location for your wedding is the beautiful weather. Every bride wants her big day to be just perfect, and that means perfect weather too.
The best weather is from late April to early November when there is plenty of sunshine and less chance of rain. This is especially important if you desire an outdoor or beach wedding, so consider planning your wedding around this time of the year.
And excellent weather also facilitates amazing wedding photos, which you’ll treasure for the rest of your days together. And with over 6000 small islands to choose from, you won’t struggle to find the perfect wedding photo location.
An Abundance Of Breathtaking Scenery
That’s right, let’s not forget the pics for your wedding album. And there is certainly no better place than Greece for wedding photos.
The Greek mainland and surrounding islands provide the most magnificent backdrops for your wedding photos. Greece is perhaps most well-known for its beautiful islands and pristine sandy beaches, but it has so much more to offer than you might think.
Magnificent mountains, sparkling springs, lush forests, and impressive ancient ruins make Greece the wedding location of your dreams. Say “I do” against the backdrop of a castle, a vineyard, an orchard, or an ancient architectural wonder. Any wedding budget or theme is easily catered to here.
But you don’t have to worry about any of the planning yourself. Greece boasts many wedding planners and caterers, to help you prepare for your special day.
A Wedding Your Guests Will Never Forget
Your family and friends will talk about your wedding for years to come because it gives them an opportunity to have a Greek vacation too.
Greece offers your wedding guests the opportunity to stick around after the festivities are over. They may choose to stay on the mainland and do some sightseeing or do some island hopping. All kinds of watersports are on offer here too, so there will be no shortage of fun things to do after the wedding.
Kayaking, paddleboarding, jet skiing, parasailing, scuba diving, and snorkeling are all on offer and so much more. And for those who enjoy the finer things in life, Naxos is considered one of the top foodie islands in the Greek islands.
Ideal For Both Wedding And Honeymoon
The sheer variety of places to visit and things to do is what makes a wedding in Greece so practical. Because with so many beautiful islands and natural wonders to explore, it’s the ideal location for your honeymoon as well.
Santorini is known as one of the most idyllic island getaways for a romantic honeymoon. Also known as Thera, this volcanic island boasts breathtaking views, historically significant ruins, delicious cuisine, and exotic beaches that are like modern-day works of art in black, red, and white.
Inside the medieval capital of Santorini, a medieval castle still stands, awaiting your discovery. Not to mention, it’s a great spot for some awesome but refreshingly different honeymoon pics.
And when you’re ready for the nightlife, Mykonos is the place to be. It has the reputation of being the Greek island with the best nightlife and buzzing club scene. But Los is a close contender as the ultimate Greek party island.
