Why get married in Skopelos
Planning your wedding is rarely an easy task. There are hundreds of large issues and smaller details that must be dealt with and organized. If you would like to say yes under less stressful conditions, maybe a Greek island wedding is just right for you.
Some very important reasons for choosing this untraditional wedding are:
During the summer, rain is extremely rare and you will not have to worry about rain or grey skies spoiling your wedding venue or photos.
A wedding on the beach with the sunset as backdrop or by the pool in your favorite hotel will give you the perfect romantic and unique setting. Or maybe you would like to get married at the famous church of Agios Ioannis the church on the rock – which was chosen for the Mamma Mia movie. Skopelos offers a never ending choice of beautiful, romantic places and only your imagination will set the limits.
You can also choose to add a local touch to your wedding day. The bride can be taken to the church by donkey or sailing boat, traditional Skopelitian sweets and drinks can be served at the wedding, local musicians can escort the couple to and from the ceremony or any other traditions that you might prefer to give your wedding a Greek feel.
A weeding at home can easily spin out of control. There are many relatives and acquaintances that must be invited to the wedding without really being important to the couple that they attend. So why not set the wedding away from home so you are sure only the people who you really want and who really wants to be there will attend. This will probably save you quite a lot of expences too.
Maybe your idea of a perfect wedding does not meet the expectations for a traditional wedding at home. If you choose a Greek island wedding you are free to choose exactly how you want your big day to be.
Modern families often live spread all over the country or even several countries and don’t get to spend a lot of quality time all together. This is a great chance for a re-union of the whole family and dearest friends and will definitely make the wedding celebration last for several days.
Would you like to extend the wedding experience even further? Forget about spending a fortune on an extra honeymoon and just stay an extra week after all the guests go back home, and enjoy the peace and quiet in the romantic surroundings of your big day. A fantastic way to give your amazing social event and wedding time to sink in and become an unforgettable memory.
