Santorini and Mykonos are not the only beautiful places for your wedding in Greece. Of course, Santorini is a very romantic island, and this is why so many Santorini weddings take place during summer in Oia, Fira and Firostefani. On the other hand, Mykonos weddings are luxury and cosmopolitan for people, who want to show off. However, Athens can also be a great destination for your Greek wedding thanks to its endless options. Actually, Athens gives you more possibilities than any other Greek wedding destination, and it is not an exaggeration to say that in Athens, you can organise any type of marriage you want.
The most popular Greek wedding in Athens is the ceremony and reception by the sea. In, Athens Riviera, there are many seaside hotels depending on your budget, where you can organise your wedding reception. Small churches on the top of the hill, where you have a magnificent view of Saronic Gulf, as well as white chapels by the sea are ideal for your religious ceremony. For a civil ceremony or vow renewal, there is the possibility that it takes place in the courtyard of a hotel. After the ceremony, a romantic reception or a beach party for you and your friends can make your wedding in Greece just amazing.
In the historical centre of Athens, you can combine culture and history with your Greek wedding. There, you can find not only Orthodox but also Catholic and Evangelic churches for a Christian religious ceremony, and then, your options for the reception or the party are innumerable. Hotels with the breathtaking view of Acropolis are perfect for an open-air ceremony under the stars, but there are also beautiful vendors on the top of a hill, such as Lycabetttus hill. From their roof garden, the view of Athens, Acropolis and Saronic Gulf is impressive. If you want something less luxury and strict than a hotel, in the Old Town of Athens, you can find bars and restaurants with cozy gardens, where you can organise your reception and party. The urban atmosphere inside the pebbled streets of Thissio, Monastiraki and Plaka is the perfect frame for different wedding photos during a walk with your wedding dress.
In the suburbs of Athens, there are many manors with huge, beautiful gardens and small, romantic chapels for weddings in Greece. There, you can organise your ceremony and reception in a romantic place, where everything is set up for Greek weddings. Some of these vendors have also pools, and their staff is experienced in the organisation of weddings. Thus, you can relax without having to worry about anything. Just choose your favourite place, discuss with the wedding planner about your wishes and needs, and all of your guests will be happy and satisfied. You will get married in a stunning scenery and then have an unforgettable party until the dawn.
