What are your biggest strong points as wedding planner. Experience, knowledge, skills creativity, ability?
Our team has the knowledge of the island, the different locations, the unique spots on views. There are important things that due our experience and our skills we solve easily; e.g. the best time for ceremonies due the strong light of the sun and the direction of the sunset during the year. We are familiar with all wedding venues and have the ability to suggest vendors that have different policies and rates. It is a difficult puzzle that we have to put all pieces together for a successful and joyful wedding!
Can you give us an example of when hiring a wedding planner in Santorini can be really effective?
Almost all couples hiring a wedding planner to have a guarantee and stress-free wedding in Santorini. There is only one small percentage of 2% that book everything on their own and unfortunately “on the day” realize that they have made the biggest mistake of not having a wedding planner… Who is going to arrange the paperwork? The confirmation of all services like flowers, decorations, musicians and caterer? Who is giving the signal to start the ceremony? Who is guiding the guests to the next steps smoothly? A wedding planner and coordinator do that as he/she love what he/she is doing
Other benefits of hiring a wedding planner in Santorini? Discounts? Return on Investment?
As mentioned above it is very important to have one or two persons that know the island and all vendors to arrange everything perfect. It is not easy to handle different people/staff when you don’t know them or even when you are not speaking their language! The wedding planner makes all arrangements, bookings and final confirmations. Some times the pre wedding meeting with the couple takes three or four hours to check and confirm all wedding services for their big day. Everything must go due the wedding itinerary and nothing should be missed; it is a wedding and there is no place for mistakes or delays. The wedding planner is there all day for that purpose, to keep everything in place!
How do you get the ideas out of brides so that they describe toy you effectively the vision of the wedding day?

There are so many wedding vendors in Santorini that many people feel surprised because it is a very small island. Nowadays the wedding field in Santorini is very organized and a couple does not need to bring a photographer or a hairdresser/make up artist from their country. We have all here, several options and your wedding planner must have the experience and the local knowledge to judge and make the appropriate suggestions .. the couple always choose their best suppliers.
How do wedding planners really add a couple’s personality to a wedding day?

What is the rough process?
We have several ways of designing the perfect wedding for each couple. Usually, each bride has a vision on her big day and most of the times the groom is following that with some small touch on more specific services. The easiest way is to find some sample weddings from our portfolio https://santorinimywedding.com/weddings/ or from worldwide blogs and built on that step by step. Firstly we are making a research on wedding venue/location and afterwards, we are working on more detailed fields like decorations and musicians, fireworks, etc..

We are always on time and contact via email, WhatsApp, Skype.

When someone is looking for a planner, what are some good questions to ask the meeting?
- That is an easy question; it is very easy for us to find the uniqueness on each couple and intimate all the wedding for them. The wedding venues in Santorini are specific and someone could easily think that “maybe will be a copy-paste wedding?”. My answer is definitely NO! Our team has the creativity and the immediacy to talk in the most honest way with all couples and kindly ask them to express their personality and their character. We don’t want to have a super wow wedding, we want to have the wedding of their dreams that express their personal style and will love it every moment. Every couple is different and we always respect that; we work with passion to
fulfillall wishes and make all decorations and entertainment on the day as they worth to have.
Does the wedding planner take referral fees?
Regarding the wedding planning
What happens if they are sick on the day or injured etc?
Well, that might be a problem. We always help in all ways if there is an injury and provide the best treatment if someone is sick. Unfortunately we can not move the wedding last minute (I mean some days prior the wedding day). It is not like we don’t want, the problem, is the wedding venues, the caterers, the photographers and videographers. During the summer season all vendors have daily bookings and if someone want to move a big wedding makes a huge problem on them. If it is a romantic elopement with only the couple and all suppliers agree we can definitely move it to some days afterwards!
Any weird situation?
I remember some years ago we had to “change” the wedding reception to a “divorced” party. If that is not weird what is? That couple was already married in their country and had made the wedding booking in Santorini two years
Santorini is a very popular island and not a cheap one… Many people believe that some things are overestimated on accommodation and wedding field. That is true in general lines but a Santorini wedding planner can make the best suggestions from small events like a Santorini proposal or large celebrity weddings with complexity and budget.
Also, give options so the couple won’t pay a fortune. There are always small details that someone abroad don’t know and can not find easily. Our wedding packages are the most affordable in Santorini. We are very proud of providing five-star services with the best quality for our clients
