Things to Consider when Planning a Wedding in Greece
An enchanting and colorful destination wedding in Greece sounds like the ultimate dream, but it's important to note it also comes with a few challenges:
- Hotels in Greece are EP (European Plan), which typically means the quoted rate only covers the cost of the room itself, so your meals and drinks will be an additional cost and billed separately.
- The flights to Greece are longer and more expensive from most US and CA vacations.
- Wedding packages in Greece are not all-inclusive, so you'll have to hire each vendor individually (i.e. florist, wedding planner, caterer, photographer, etc.)
- The overall cost of a destination wedding in Greece will more than likely be much more expensive than a destination wedding in Mexico or the Caribbean.
