Are you planning a fairy tale wedding in Greece, but you are worried about your budget?

As a wedding celebrant in Greece I travel all around the country writing and officiating unique destination wedding ceremonies, so I have seen a lot. Here I would like to share some wedding ideas and inspiration for any couple planning a wedding in Greece.

Just the two of us- Intimate elopement wedding

You know the old song right, vocals by the late Bill Withers. Well you can get married in Greece, just the two of you!

Create a Knockout Directory Listing

During the two years since we launched Tie The Knot Wedding Directory, we have picked up many tips to help increase the SEO and website presence of our listed suppliers. These tips can help even if you are not in the wedding industry.

Utilise the space you are given

Many directories offer a full page to your business, so use it! A good guide to word count is a MINIMUM of 300 words. Many SEO experts have differing ideas on the ideal word count for Google to 'pick up' (and of course, their algorithms can change) but between 300 and 600 words is generally seen as good. These seem to be popular with Google, they like words!

10 top tips for planning a destination wedding in Greece

by Sarah Hatjipavlis, Grecian Ceremonies Photography by Katerina Tsavari Giallouraki

Chosen Greece for your special day? Here are just ten top tips to help you before you start wedding planning!

Venue choice – Greece has great weather, fantastic views, so much history and of course there is an almost endless choice of places to choose from. Mainland venues or Island venues, this is where you need to start, bearing in mind, the more popular the Island, the more pricey the wedding will be. If you are planning a destination wedding on a budget, choose an Island a little less well known, not one where the A listers hang out, there are in fact about 200 inhabited Islands in Greece, so there are plenty of options

Type of venue – Are you thinking of a beach wedding? It sounds so romantic, and what great photos, but you must consider a couple of things. Firstly, most beaches in Greece are not privately owned, meaning that there will be other people aro…
