Eco-friendly Wedding Stationery 

Have you thought about sending your wedding invitations digitally? We all know they end up in the bin anyways!

by Sarah Hatjipavlis-Grecian Ceremonies-Celebrant in Greece

Have you always dreamt of saying your vows on a sandy beach, the crystal-clear blue waters lapping at your feet?

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.

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!

Take a look at this listing from Fabio Zardi for inspiration

BY Jennifer Holdway

The reality of the Coronavirus has set in and many couples are faced with the logistical challenges of postponing and in some cases completely rearranging their wedding. Couples getting married later in the year are trying to decide if they should postpone their wedding as well. How long should they wait before they bite the bullet and pick a new date? Should everyone just wait until 2021 to get married or is it safe to plan your wedding in December?

What you all need to realise is that you are not alone. Whilst not everyone is facing the exact same challenges as you, we are all facing uncertain times. The only difference is that we are all handling the awful COVID-19 in our own ways, but that does not mean you have to do it alone. I have a wonderful friend who, despite the fact we both have men who love us very much, checks I am alright every day and I do the same for her. Whilst the loves of our lives are wonderful, it is good to have a fr…
